Call for demos for User Modeling 2007


     11th International Conference on User Modeling

          Corfu, Greece, 25 to 29 of June 2007

UM2007 invites researches, practitioners and industry  to
exhibit  their  latest innovative work  and  products  in
"Demonstrations",   a   new   category    of    solicited
contributions in the conference series.

UM  2007  is  the latest in the User Modeling  conference
series, a major international forum for presentation  and
discussion of emerging developments in academic  research
on   user  modeling  and  adaptive  systems  as  well  as
industrial   experience   in   deploying   adaptive   and
personalized systems in "real-world" applications.

The  User  Modeling  conference  series  brings  together
researchers  and practitioners from a variety  of  fields
including     artificial    intelligence,    linguistics,
psychology,  and  human-computer  interaction.   Relevant
topics  for the conference comprise a broad spectrum  and
include (but are not limited to) theories and methods  in
user  adaptation  and usability, collaborative  filtering
and recommender system, information filtering and content
personalization  of  Web  services.   In  addition,   the
conference  attracts  interest  in  emerging  fields   of
personalized   interaction  in  mobile,  ubiquitous   and
context-aware computing.

The   conference  series  is  characterized  by  a   high
standards' technical program with peer-reviewed papers, a
doctoral  consortium,  talks  by  distinguished   invited
speakers from academia and industry, workshops, tutorials
and,  most importantly, lively discussions in a  pleasant

In  a  continued effort to expand the scope and reach  of
this conference series, UM 2007 introduces Demonstrations
of innovative systems and prototypes as a new category of
solicited  contributions. Demonstrations  will  offer  an
opportunity to showcase relevant research prototypes,  as
well as industrial products, and to discuss them with  an
international  audience of experts in user modelling  and
adaptive systems.

Demonstrations  in  UM  2007 will  be  delivered  in  the
conferences  "Demo  area".  Specifically,  demonstrators
will  be  allotted space and equipment within a dedicated
area,  hosting  a number of demonstrations  in  parallel.
Each  demonstration will have a time slot  of  a  typical
length of 2 hours, and the delivery format is expected to
be  as  interactive and "hands on" as  possible,  with  a
relatively small number of onlookers / participants at  a
time.  "Live" interactive demonstrations will be favoured
in the selection process.

Further  to  the  above, demonstrators will  be  able  to
provide a short presentation on their demonstration in an
auditorium  session that will be scheduled to take  place
early  on  in  the  conference. This is  intended  as  an
opportunity to make the conference participants aware  of
the different demonstrations available, as well as of the
related schedule.

In  this  context,  UM  2007 is seeking  interesting  and
engaging    demonstrations   of   user   modelling    and
personalisation technologies, under the general topics of
the  conference; a detailed list of these topics  can  be
found      on      the     conferences     web      site

Submissions  should be in PDF format, at most  two  pages
long,  and include: (a) a title and a description of  the
proposed demonstrations topic and related work;  (b)  an
outline of the demonstration itself, including modalities
to  be  used and technical requirements (including space,
power,  network, security, etc.); and, (c) a  description
of  the  target audience and a brief account of  why  you
believe  the demonstration would be of interest  to  said

To  submit  a  proposal, send a document  containing  the
information  outlined above to the UM2007 Demo  Co-chairs
(  and   All
submissions  will be reviewed on the basis of  relevance,
originality, significance, and demonstrability potential.

Important dates:
    Proposal submission  Friday, February 23rd 2007
    Acceptance notification  Friday, March 9th 2007

Questions  regarding the  submission  procedure should be
directed to the  Demo Co-chairs (

Looking forward to your submissions!
