* Demonstrations

Demonstrations will showcase research prototypes and commercially available
products of UMAP-based systems at the conference. Demonstrations are an
excellent way to receive feedback from the conference audience.
Descriptions of demonstrations should have a length of max 2 pages in the
ACM SIG proceedings template. On an extra page (not to be published),
submissions should include a specification of the technical requirements
for demonstrating the system at UMAP 2016.

* Posters

Descriptions of posters must be original and unpublished accounts of
innovative work in progress or research that is best communicated in an
interactive or graphical format. They should report at least preliminary
results. Poster abstracts should have a length of max 2 pages in the ACM
SIG proceedings template.

* Late-Breaking Results

Late-breaking results must contain original and unpublished accounts of
innovative research ideas, preliminary results, industry showcases, and
system prototypes, addressing both the theory and practice of user
modeling, adaptation and personalization. In addition, papers introducing
recently started research projects or summarizing project results are
welcome as well. Late-breaking results papers are expected to be longer
than posters and demonstrations papers and should have a length of 4 to 6
pages in the ACM SIG proceedings template.

* Submission and Review Process

Submissions (demos, posters and late-breaking results) must adhere to the
ACM SIG proceedings format. A template can be found at:­

Submit your papers in PDF format via EasyChair for UMAP 2016 Demos,
Posters, and Late-Breaking Results at:

The review process will be single blinded, i.e. authors’ names should be
included in the papers. Submissions will be reviewed by at least two
independent reviewers. They will be assessed based on their originality and
novelty, potential contribution to the research field, potential impact in
particular use cases, and the usefulness of presented experiences, as well
as their overall readability. Papers that exceed the page limit for the
corresponding category (2 pages for demos and posters and 6 pages for
late-breaking results) or do not adhere to the formatting guidelines will
be returned without review.

* Publication and Presentation

Accepted demo, poster and late-breaking results papers will be published in
the UMAP 2016 Extended Proceedings as a volume of CEUR Workshop
Proceedings. All three categories will be presented at the poster reception
of the conference, in the form of a poster and/or a software demonstration
following poster format. This form of presentation will provide presenters
with an opportunity to obtain direct one-to-one feedback about their work
from a wide audience during the conference. Valid poster formats are a
single slide of about 24″x36″ (ISO A1) or alternatively up to 9 ISO A4
At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference
and present the paper there.
