Type of Papers

In HAAPIE 2017 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All workshop papers must contain original, previously unpublished, research work adhering the two publication types: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 (6 pages, including references), proposing new approaches, innovative methods and research findings. They should make substantial theoretical and empirical contributions to the research field.
  • Short research papers (4 pages, including references), 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 ACM Standard (SIGCONF) 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 (

All accepted papers will be published by ACM and will be available via the ACM Digital Library.
