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
