If you are interested in any aspect of systems that acquire information about a user (or group of users) so as to be able to adapt their behavior to that user or group, you have come to the right place! UM Inc. is a society of researchers and practitioners who are interested in developing adaptive systems and personalizing users’ experience with systems. Numerous applications of such systems exist for example in the area of natural language understanding and dialogue systems, in computer-based educational systems and online learning environments, in systems for computer supported collaboration, recommender systems for e-Commerce, news and entertainment.
UMAP 2017, the 25th conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization, will take place early July 2017 in Bratislava, Slovakia. More details will follow soon.
