UMAP(http://um.org/umap2014/) is the premier international conference for
researchers and practitioners working on systems that adapt to their
individual users, or to groups of users, and collect and represent
information about users for this purpose.

UMAP ProS workshop aims to bring together participants from several
International projects to exchange ideas and experience relating to the
approaches they are implementing or planning to implement, based on
experiences in user modelling, adaptation and personalisation.

The workshop invites projects employing User modelling, adaptation and
personalisation techniques and technologies in these themes to submit a
presentation proposal to present their project at the workshop.

The workshop program will contain presentation from 8-10 projects and a
