* 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 On an extra page (not to be published), submissions should include a specification of the technical requirements for demonstrating the system at UMAP 2016.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Descriptions of posters must be original and unpublished accounts of innovative work in progress or research that is best communicated in an interactive or graphical format.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Late-breaking results must contain original and unpublished accounts of innovative research ideas, preliminary results, industry showcases, and system prototypes, addressing both the theory and practice of user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 slides.
At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper there.
