CFP: User Modeling and Personalization Track

Track chairs:


We invite research contributions to the User Modeling and Personalization Track at the 32nd edition of The Web Conference series (formerly known as WWW), to be hosted at Austin, TX, US, on April 30 - May 4, 2023 in Austin, TX ( /www2023/)

A large swath of user interaction with various online services happens through devices connected to the World Wide Web. Hence, developing technologies to understand and personalize user experience in applications powered by web data has become one of the most challenging problems for Web researchers and practitioners. Recent advances have enabled the processing of vast amounts of data collected from these devices, using techniques from machine learning, statistical modeling, natural language processing, speech recognition, computer vision, and others. The sheer volume of interactions has also made it possible to innovate and experiment continuously in a data-driven fashion, based on users’ interactions and feedback. Such technology can benefit everyone if it is developed with inclusion at the heart of technical choices, particularly with techniques to mitigate biases that may arise at different stages, from data collection to modeling and evaluation, to system design. In this track, we invite original research submissions addressing all aspects of user modeling, personalization, inclusive modeling, and system design in the context of the Web.

Topics include (but are not limited to):

Authors should consult the conference’s main Research Track CFP to ensure their submissions are aligned with broader conference expectations, scope, and theme: “Web Research with Openness, Fairness and Reproducibility”. The CFP also details submission guidelines, relevant dates, and important policies.

Submissions that are out of scope or unresponsive to the call above will be rejected early during the reviewing process (“desk rejected”) with minimal feedback. This includes submissions that do not relate to the web or web-based infrastructures, technologies, or platforms.

In case you have doubts whether your paper fits the scope of this track, please contact the track chairs
