Proposals due:    January 16, 2023

Submission site:

ACM UMAP 2023, the premier international conference for researchers and practitioners working on systems that adapt to individual users or to groups of users, and which collect, represent, and model user information, is pleased to invite proposals for tutorials to be given in conjunction with the conference. Tutorials are intensive instructional sessions aimed to provide a comprehensive introduction to established or emerging research topics of interest for the UMAP community.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • new user modeling technologies, methods, techniques, and trends (e.g. exploiting data mining and big data analytics for user modeling, evaluation methodologies, data visualization, etc.);
  • user modeling and personalization techniques for specific domains (e.g., health sciences, e-government, e-commerce, cultural heritage, education, internet of things, mobile, music, information retrieval, etc.);
  • application of user modeling and personalization techniques for information retrieval and recommender systems;
  • eliciting and learning user preferences by taking into account users’ emotional state, physical state, personality, trust, cognitive factors

An ideal tutorial should be broad enough to provide a basic introduction to the chosen area, but it should also cover the most important topics in depth. Tutorial presenters can have one page in the adjunct proceedings.



Tutorial proposals should be submitted in PDF format via Easychair submission site:, not exceeding 5 pages and submitted in a single-column format based on the following templates:

  • LaTeX:

  • Overleaf (use \documentclass[manuscript,review]{acmart} for single-column):

  • MS Word:

The proposal should include the following information:

  • Title and abstract of the tutorial for inclusion on the ACM UMAP 2023 website (200 words maximum).
  • Tutorial description:
    • learning objectives of the tutorial and relevance to ACM UMAP 2023
    • targeted audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced) and prerequisite knowledge or skills;
    • a brief outline of the tutorial structure;
    • practical sessions.
  • Tutorial length: full (6 hours) or half day (3 hours).
  • Other venues to which the tutorial or part thereof has been or will be presented, in addition to explaining how the current tutorial differs from the other editions, and from other tutorials on the same or similar topics (please specify conference name and year).
  • Name, email address, affiliation and brief professional biography of the tutorial instructor(s), indicating previous training and speaking experience.



Proposals due:  January 16, 2023

Notification of acceptance:  January 30, 2023

Camera-ready tutorial summary:  May 18, 2023

Adjunct proceedings camera ready:   May 18, 2023

Tutorial Day: June 26, 2023

Deadlines refer to 23:59 in the AoE (Anywhere on Earth) time zone.



All proposals will be reviewed by the tutorial chairs. The features that will

be evaluated are:

  • ability of the tutorial to contribute to strengthening the foundations of UMAP research;
  • clarity of the tutorial, which should emerge from its description;
  • good organization, as appearing from the outline;
  • the value of any materials released with the tutorial for the community;
  • background/experience of tutorial instructor(s) in teaching the target topics.
