CALL FOR PAPERS

RecSys'09: Third ACM Conference on Recommender Systems
http://recsys.acm.org/

October 22-25, 2009
New York City

Paper Submission Deadline: May 8, 2008
************************************************************

We are pleased to invite you once again to participate in the premier annual event on research and applications of recommendation technologies, the Third ACM Conference on Recommender Systems. The previous conferences in Minneapolis and Lausanne have been distinguished by a strong level of interaction between practitioners and researchers in the sharing of ideas, problems and solutions, and the 2009 conference will continue in this tradition. The fully-refereed proceedings will be published by the ACM and, like past RecSys proceedings, are expected to be widely read and cited.

************************************************************
PROGRAM

Technical Program

The technical program will celebrate the diversity of research in and applications of recommender systems with refereed and invited presentations, keynote talks and posters.

Tutorials

The first day of the conference will be devoted to tutorials in which top practitioners and researchers share their expertise and latest results. The tutorials at the 2008 conference were highly-attended. Look for the Call for Tutorials announcement on the website, or send email to tutorial2009@recsys.acm.org if you are interested in presenting a tutorial.

Workshops

To reflect the diversity of research in recommender systems and to give additional venues for the presentation of research, the conference will feature workshops for the first time. Look for the Call for Workshops announcement on the website, or send email to workshop2009@recsys.acm.org if you are interested in organizing a workshop.

Doctoral Symposium

The Doctoral Symposium provides an opportunity for doctoral students to explore and develop their research interests in an interdisciplinary workshop, under the guidance of a panel of distinguished research faculty. Look for the Call for Participation announcement on the website, or send email to doctoral2009@recsys.acm.org if you are interested in participating.

Additional information on all aspects of the program can be found at: http://recsys.acm.org/

TOPICS OF INTEREST

We construe recommender systems broadly, including applications ranging from e-commerce to social networking, platforms from web to mobile and beyond, and a wide variety of technologies ranging from collaborative filtering to case-based reasoning. Therefore, topics of interest for RecSys'09 include (but are not limited to):

* Case studies of recommender system implementations
* Conversational recommender systems
* Context-aware and multidimensional recommender systems
* Evaluation of recommender systems
* Group recommenders
* The impact of recommenders in practice
* Innovative recommender applications
* Novel paradigms of recommender systems
* Personalization
* Recommendation algorithms
* Recommendation in social networks
* Recommender system interfaces
* Scalability issues
* Security and privacy
* Semantic web technologies for recommender systems
* Theoretical aspects of recommender systems
* User modeling and recommender systems
* User studies

************************************************************
AWARDS

The conference will present a Best Paper and a Best Poster award, with the Best Poster award being judged on both the (short) paper itself and on the presentation of the work in poster form.

************************************************************
PAPER FORMAT & SUBMISSION

All submissions and reviews will be handled electronically in PDF format. RecSys09 submissions should be prepared according to the standard ACM SIG proceedings format. For your convenience, we provide paper templates in Microsoft Word and LaTeX on the conference website.

There are two paper categories:

- LONG PAPER submissions should report on substantial contributions of lasting value. Each accepted long paper will be presented in a plenary session of the main conference program. The maximum length is 8 pages in the standard ACM SIG proceedings format.


- SHORT PAPER submissions typically discuss exciting new work that is not yet mature enough for a long paper. Each accepted short paper will be presented in a poster/demo session. The presentation may include a system demonstration. The maximum length is 4 pages in the standard ACM SIG proceedings format.

RecSys '09 will not use blind review, so please include authors' names and affiliations on your submission. See the conference website for further submission information including submission URL.
