An non-exhaustive list of topics for this workshop:
- Identifying models that are (expected to be) useful for personalizing user interfaces (e.g., personality, level of domain knowledge, need for cognition, cognitive styles)
- Data Mining Methods to Infer user profiles in terms of cognitive/psychologic user characteristics from data (e.g., how to infer personality from social media or domain knowledge from clickstreams)
- Theory on how to tailor interfaces to better match certain user profiles (e.g., altering the number of search results, ordering of interface elements, visual versus textual representations)
- User studies investigating one or more of the aspects mentioned above
For this workshop we encourage three kinds of submissions:
- full papers (anonymized up to 8-10 pages)*
- short papers (anonymized up to 4-6 pages)*
- white papers/position statements (anonymized up to 2-4 pages)*
* page count is excluding references
Submissions should follow the standard SigConf format. Use either the Microsoft Word template or the LaTeX template: http://www.acm.org/publications/article-templates/proceedings-template.html/
All submissions will undergo a peer-review process to ensure a high standard of quality. Referees will consider originality, significance, technical soundness, clarity of exposition, and relevance to the workshop’s topics. The reviewing process will be double-blind so submissions should be properly anonymized according to the following guidelines:
- Author’s names and affiliations are not visible anywhere in the paper.
- Acknowledgements should be anonymized or removed during the review process.
- Self-citations should be included where necessary, but must use the third person. For example, “… as shown in our previous user study  … ” is not allowed, whereas “… as shown in Smith et al.  ” is acceptable (because in this case the citation  will NOT be perceived as self-citation).
Research papers should be submitted electronically as a single PDF through the EasyChair conference submission system: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=humanize2018
Publication and Registration
Accepted submissions will be included in the joint ACM IUI workshop proceedings published as a CEUR-WS volume. In order for accepted papers to be included, at least one author should be registered (http://iui.acm.org/2018/attending.html#registration) and attend the workshop.
