Conference Call for Papers



in conjunction with UbiComp 2019, London, UK

09 September 2019



The Fourth International Workshop on Ubiquitous Personal Assistance (UPA’19) aims to share experiences of current research endeavors on digital personal assistance. We invite submissions of papers focused on advancing towards digital assistants that provide a high level of personalization, through proactive and effective support of users’ activities, in an unobtrusive manner. In particular, we wish to put forward the discussion on how digital assistants can provide unobtrusive guidance and support for specific endeavors of people’s lives, such as those related to training/education, professional, and personal activities. Furthermore, this workshop seeks to find novel ways to exploit cognitive aspects, such as users’ intentions, motivations, and emotions, to build digital assistants that better fit each particular user.
