=========================== CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

In conjunction with the 22nd Conference on User Modelling, Adaptation and
Personalization (UMAP 2014)
Aalborg, Denmark, July 7-11, 2014




UMAP 2014 is pleased to invite proposals for workshops to be held in
conjunction with the conference. The workshops provide a venue to discuss
and explore emerging areas of User Modelling and Adaptive Hypermedia
research with a group of like-minded researchers and practitioners from
Industry and academia. We welcome proposals for half-day and full-day
workshops. We encourage proposals for a wide range of workshops, including
but not limited to:

- Working group meetings around a specific problem or topic; such workshops
may wish to ask participants to submit a white paper or position statement.
- Mini-conferences on specialized topics; such workshops may have their own
paper submission and review processes.
- Mini-competitions or challenges around selected topics with individual or
team participation.

=============== PROPOSAL FORMAT ===============

The workshop proposals should be PDF documents not exceeding 5 pages,
submitted by email to the workshop chairs. The proposals should be
organized as follows:

- Workshop title and acronym

- Workshop chair(s), including affiliation, email address, homepage, and
experiences in organizing such events

- Abstract (up to 300 words) and topics

- Motivation on why the topic is of particular interest at this time

- Workshop format, discussing the mix of events such as paper
presentations, invited talks, panels, and general discussion

- Intended audience and expected number of participants

- List of (potential) members of the program committee (at least 50% have
to be confirmed at the time of the proposal)

- Requested duration (half day or full day)

- Past versions of the workshop, including URLs as well as submission and
acceptance statistics.

Additionally, we strongly suggest to have organizers from different
institutions, bringing different perspectives to the workshop topic. We
welcome workshops with a creative structure that attracts various types of
contributions and ensures rich interactions.

The organizers of accepted workshops will prepare a workshop web site
containing the call for papers and detailed information about the workshop
organization and timeline. The organizers will be responsible for their own
reviewing process, publicity, and publishing electronic proceedings (e.g.,
on the CEUR-WS website). They will be required to closely cooperate with
the UMAP workshops chairs to finalize the above mentioned details.
