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 workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. The workshops provide a venue to discuss and explore emerging areas of User Modeling and Adaptive Hypermedia research with a group of like-minded researchers and practitioners from industry and academia.

In this edition, our goal is to have a balanced workshop program comprising different workshop formats, combining newly emerging, currently evolving and established research topics. Different full-day and half-day workshop schemas are possible, such as:

  • Working group meetings around a specific problem or topic; participants may be asked to submit a white paper or position statement.
  • Mini-conferences on specialized topics, having their own paper submission and review processes.
  • Mini-competitions or challenges around selected topics with individual or team participation.
  • Interactive discussion meetings focusing on subtopics of the UMAP general research topics.
  • Joint panels for different workshops.


Workshop 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:

and organized as follows:

  • Workshop title and acronym
  • Workshop chair(s), including affiliation, email address, homepage, and experiences in organizing such events. Note that organizers are expected to attend the workshop and be actively involved in its organization
  • Abstract (up to 300 words) and topics of interest
  • Keywords (at least 3)
  • Motivation on why the workshop is of particular interest at this time and how it complements (rather than duplicates) the topics of the main conference
  • Workshop format, discussing the mix of events such as paper presentations, invited talks, panels, and general discussions
  • Intended audience and expected number of participants, including how they will be selected
  • List of (potential) members of the program committee (at least 50% have to be confirmed at the time of the proposal)
  • Requested duration (half day or full day)
  • When available, past editions of the workshop, including URLs, a brief statement on the development of the workshop series, e.g., in terms of topics, number of paper submissions and participants, post-workshop publications over the years and acceptance statistics.
  • If this would be the first edition of the workshop, description of how this workshop differs from others on the same or similar topics (include conference name and year)
  • Any other relevant information to support your proposal


We encourage both researchers and industry practitioners to submit workshop proposals.

Researchers interested in submitting a workshop proposal are invited to contact us in advance, so we can help to design successful proposals. In particular, for workshop proposals with novel interactive formats, we are happy to assist in further developing and implementing the ideas.

We strongly suggest involving organizers from different institutions, bringing different perspectives to the workshop topic. We welcome workshops with a creative structure that may attract various types of contributions and may ensure rich interactions.

The organizers of accepted workshops will prepare a workshop web site containing the call for papers and detailed information about the workshop organization and timeline. They will be responsible for their own publicity and reviewing processes.

There will be a conference adjunct proceedings published by ACM where all the workshop papers will be published. Hence, the workshop organizers will need to adhere to the adjunct proceedings publication timeline.


  • Proposal submission: January 16, 2023
  • Notification of proposal acceptance: January 30, 2023
  • Send the workshop description & website URL: February 23, 2022

We furthermore encourage the organizers to stick to the following suggested deadlines in the schedule for authors:

  • (Suggested) 1st call for papers: February 28, 2023
  • (Suggested) 2nd call for papers: April 13, 2023
  • (Suggested) paper submission: April 20, 2023
  • (Suggested) notification to authors: May 8, 2023
  • Workshop summary camera-ready deadline (TAPS system): May 18, 2023
  • Workshop papers camera-ready deadline (TAPS system): May 18, 2023
  • Workshop Date: June 26, 2023

These dates are synchronized with the notification of acceptance in the main conference track, and the availability of early registration for the authors of accepted workshop papers.

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