RecSys'09: Third ACM Conference on Recommender Systems

October 22-25, 2009
New York City


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. Register early (before August 21, 2009) for the lower
registration fee at:


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. This year we have received record number of paper
submissions and are expecting a very high-quality technical program.


The first day of the conference will be devoted to three high-quality
tutorials in which top practitioners and researchers share their expertise
and latest results. 


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. There will be four workshops with the
following paper/position statement submission deadlines:
	* Recommender Systems and the Social Web: July 20, 2009
	* Open Source Recommender System Software: July 31, 2009
	* Workshop on Context-Aware Recommender Systems (CARS-2009): July 20, 2009
	* 1st International Workshop on Recommendation-based Industrial
Applications: August 3, 2009

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. 

Additional information on all aspects of the program can be found at:

* Conference Dates: October 22-25, 2009
        * Doctoral Symposium: October 22
        * Tutorials: October 22
        * Technical Program: October 23-24
        * Workshops: October 25


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


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.
