We encourage the submission of contributions investigating novel methodologies to exploit heterogeneous personal data and approaches to build transparent and scrutable user models. In particular, we accept three kinds of submissions:

(A) Regular papers (max. 10 pages + references - single-column ACM format);
(B) Ongoing projects, Demo and Short papers (max. 5 pages + references - single-column ACM format);
(C) Journal papers (already published - 2 pages including abstract, highlights, and a pointer to the complete paper - single-column ACM format);

Submission site:
During the submission process select “5th Workshop on Explainable User Models and Personalized Systems (ExUM)”.

All submitted papers will be evaluated by at least two members of the program committee, based on originality, significance, relevance, and technical quality. Note that the references do not count toward page limits. Submissions should be single-blinded, i.e. authors’ names should be included in the submissions. Papers must be formatted according to the new workflow for ACM publications. All accepted papers will be published by ACM as a joint volume of Extended UMAP 2023 Proceedings and will be available via the ACM Digital Library. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the particular workshop and present the paper there.

* LaTeX (use \documentclass[manuscript,review,anonymous]{acmart} in the sample-authordraft.tex file for single-column):
