ACM Recsys 2013


ACM International Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys) 2013

Oct 12-16, 2013, Hong Kong, China

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the premier annual event
on research and applications of recommendation technologies, the Seventh
ACM Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys 2013). The conference will be
held on October 12-16, 2013, Hong Kong, China. Previous conferences have
been distinguished by a strong level of interaction between researchers and
practitioners in the sharing of ideas, problems and solutions, and the
2013 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.

All submissions and reviews will be handled electronically in PDF
format.RecSys 2013 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 submission categories:

Long paper submissions should report on substantial contributions of
lasting value. The maximum length is 8 pages in the standard ACM SIG
proceedings format. Each accepted long paper will be presented in a plenary session
as part of the main conference program. We expect the review process to be
highly selective: in 2012, the acceptance rate for full papers was 20%.

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

Note: Please note that rejected long paper submissions will not be
automatically considered as short papers.

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. Topics of interest for RecSys 2013 include (but
are not limited to):

– Algorithm scalability
– Case studies of real-world implementations
– Computational advertising
– Conversational recommender systems
– Context-aware and multidimensional models
– Evaluation metrics and studies
– Explanations and evidence
– Group recommenders
– Impact studies
– Innovative/New applications
– Machine learning for recommendation
– Novel paradigms
– Personalization
– Preference elicitation
– Recommendation algorithms
– Social recommenders
– User interfaces
– Security, privacy, trust, and reputation
– Semantic web technologies for recommendation
– Theoretical foundations
– User modelling
– User studies

RecSys 2013 is pleased to invite demos, proposals for workshops and
tutorials to be held in conjunction with the conference.

The RecSys demo session provides an exciting way for researchers and
developers to present new recommender ideas, show off their work, and
get valuable feedback from the recommender systems community.

The goal of the workshops is to provide additional venues for
presenting research on topics of interest and an informal forum to discuss
research questions and challenges.

The goal of the tutorials is to provide the larger conference community
an opportunity to learn about recommender system concepts and techniques
and serve as a venue to share presenters’ expertise with the global
community of recommender system researchers and practitioners.

We actively encourage both researchers and industry practitioners to
submit demos and proposals. We actively encourage both researchers and
industry practitioners to submit demos and proposals. The details for demos,
workshops and tutorials are available at
