MetadataShow full item record
It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the UMAP 2017 LBR, Demo, and TOR Track, the 25th User Modelling, Adaptation and Personalization, held in Bratislava, Slovakia organized between the July 9-12th, 2017. This track of UMAP wraps three categories: (i) Demos, which showcase research prototypes and commercially available products of UMAP-based systems, (ii) Late-breaking Results, which contain original and unpublished accounts of innovative research ideas, preliminary results, industry showcases, and system prototypes, addressing both the theory and practice of UMAP and (iii) Theory, Opinion and Reflection (TOR). TOR is an additional category introduced in this edition of UMAP. Papers in this category critically look at ongoing research topics, reflect on persistent or fleeting trends in the field and offer blue sky future agendas for UMAP research. A novelty related to the TOR category is the presentation format. TOR papers will be presented in the form of an interactive campfire session in a discussion corner during the poster session. In total, we received 13 LBR, 6 TOR, and 4 Demo submissions out of which 8, 3 and 3 were deemed of high quality by the reviewers. Further 6 LBR papers were accepted from the main conference.
