Call for Workshop

In conjunction with the 23rd International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI 2018)
Tokyo, Japan
March 7-11, 2018

IUI 2018 Workshop on

Theory-Informed User Modeling for Tailoring and Personalizing Interfaces

The HUMANIZE workshop aims to provide a venue for scholars to discover and discuss research findings on how to incorporate psychological theory into personalized interfaces. Personalization is often done through mining behavior data for patterns, but many examples exist of improving personalization techniques by incorporating psychological understanding of users in the form of user models. HUMANIZE aims to explore the interface between purely data-driven approaches and approaches that incorporate theoretical knowledge of users of a system.
