Call for Papers

Call for Papers



UMAP 2020 will proceed as planned July 14-17, but we will continue to monitor the evolving situation related to the coronavirus disease outbreak and potential impact on global travel. We are following the guidelines provided by the World Health Organisation (WHO), local public health authorities, individual governments and the Italian Government. Decisions will be based on that. We wish to reassure that should a physical conference be unsafe or should people have travel limitations from Governments, the remote presentations/recordings will be possible. Proceedings of the Main Conference and Adjunct Proceedings will be available as planned in the ACM Digital Library.

Any changes to operating status will be communicated immediately on the website and social media as well as to all authors of accepted papers and to registered meeting attendees. Stay tuned.
