Call for papers


An non-exhaustive list of topics for this workshop:

  • Identifying theory (e.g., personality, level of domain knowledge, cognitive styles) that can be used for user models for personalizing user interfaces.
  • Investigating the impact of incorporating psychological theory on explainability, fairness, transparency, and bias
  • Modeling for inferring of user variables from observable/measureable/objective data (e.g., how to infer personality from social media, how to infer level of domain knowledge from clickstreams).
  • Designing better adaptive systems from inferred user variables (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.

Submission Instructions

For this workshop we encourage three kinds of submissions:

  1. full papers (anonymized up to 8-10 pages)
  2. short papers (anonymized up to 4-6 pages)
  3. white papers/position statements (anonymized up to 2-4 pages)

* page count is excluding references

Submissions should follow the standard SigCHI format. Use either the Microsoft Word template or the LaTeX template.

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 [2] … ” is not allowed, whereas “… as shown in Smith et al. [2] ” is acceptable (because in this case the citation [2] will NOT be perceived as self-citation).

Research papers should be submitted electronically as a single PDF through the EasyChair conference submission system:
