2nd ACM International Conference on Recommender Systems

October 23-25, 2008 in Lausanne, Switzerland

Visit the website at:

Submission Deadline: May 18th, 2008


NEWSFLASH!!! Someone attending RecSys08 will walk away with a start-up
investment of $100,000 !!!! For further details read on…

We are pleased to invite you once again to participate in this  
premier annual event on research and applications of recommender  

The 2nd ACM International Conference on Recommender Systems, builds  
on the success of the Recommenders06 School in Bilbao, Spain; and the  
1st International Conference in Minneapolis, USA. In these events  
many members of the practitioner and research communities valued the  
rich sharing of ideas made possible by the shared plenary sessions.  
The 2nd International conference will combine the same close  
interaction among practitioners and researchers with a fully refereed  
published collection of papers. The proceedings, which are available  
both as a bound volume and via the ACM Digital Library, are expected  
to be widely read and cited.

In addition to a regular technical program, there will be tutorials  
covering the state-of-the-art of this domain, an industrial program  
comprising of panel discussions and a practice/industry-paper track.   
We also expect to have one keynote speaker who will address the major  
applications of recommendation technologies in industry.

Also, the RecSys08 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. We invite students who feel they  
would benefit from this kind of feedback on their dissertation work  
to apply for this unique opportunity to share their work withstudents  
in a similar situation as well as senior researchers in the field.  
Additional information is available at

MyStands has recently announced the above call which seeks to

technologies. As part of RecSys08 five finalists will be invited to
