UMAP is the premier international conference for researchers and practitioners working on personalization and systems that adapt to individual users, to groups of users, and that collect, represent, and model user information. It is a successor of two successful conference series: User Modeling, which started in 1986, and Adaptive Hypertext and Hypermedia, which started in 2000. UMAP is sponsored by ACM under two SIGs: CHI and Web. The proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
UMAP 2018 covers a wide variety of research areas where personalization and adaptation may be applied. This include (but is in no way limited to) a number of domains in which researchers are engendering significant innovations based on advances in user modeling and adaptation: recommender systems; adaptive educational systems; intelligent user interfaces; eCommerce; advertising; digital humanities; social networks; personalized health; entertainment, and many more. This year, there were 5 main themes/tracks, chaired by world-renowned researchers:
UMAP 2018 provides doctoral students with the opportunity to explore and develop their research interests under the guidance of a panel of distinguished scholars, and possibilities for researchers to present and disucss their research, and to network with other researchers. A vibrant workshop and tutorial program plus poster, demo and late-breaking results session complete the program of the conference.
Your investment in the conference allows you to capitalize on UMAP's respected reputation and industry connections to increase your brand awareness, strengthen your exposure in the market place, and reinforce your position as an industry leader in personalization and user-adaptive systems. There are three other benefits: first, your kind sponsorship will help keep the costs of the conference reasonable for students, and improve the quality of the conference experience for all attendees world-wide. Second, sponsors will get an opportunity to showcase their state-of- the-art personalization and recommender technologies, which helps publicize your organization’s work and recruitment effort in the area of personalization and recommender systems. Third, sponsors will be able to get involved and influence the conference events and the community as a whole.
We offer four levels of sponsorship summarized in the table below. In recognition of all sponsorship levels, UMAP 2018 will acknowledge your support in the following ways:
