Type of Papers

In HAAPIE 2016 we encourage original and relevant contributions focusing on experiences and lessons learned from real-life applications, current state-of-the-art methodologies, challenges tackled and solutions adopted, tools, algorithms, and services in the academic, public or private sector, studies, theories, techniques, and evaluation procedures that could support human-centered adaptation and personalization issues in various levels of interactive environments.

All workshop papers must contain original, previously unpublished, research work adhering the two publication types:

  • Full research papers (8-10 pages), proposing new approaches, innovative methods and research findings. They should make substantial theoretical and empirical contributions to the research field.
  • Short research papers (4-6 pages), presenting work in progress, lessons learnt, positions, emerging or future research issues and directions on human aspect challenges in the area.

Manuscripts should be formatted using the camera-ready templates ( in the ACM proceedings double-column format.

Submission and Publication

All papers will undergo a peer review process by at least two expert reviewers to ensure a high standard of quality. Referees will consider originality, significance, technical soundness, clarity of exposition, and relevance to the workshop’s topics.

Research papers should be submitted electronically as a single PDF file through the EasyChair submission system (

Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings published in the ACM UMAP 2016 Extended Proceedings through the green open-access
