8th ACM International Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys 2014)

October 6-10, 2014, Foster City, Silicon Valley, USA
Demo Submission Deadline: May 19th 2014


RecSys 2014 is pleased to invite proposals for demos to be presented in
conjunction with the conference. The 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

We invite demonstrations of developments in all aspects of recommender
systems, including (but not limited to):
- Interaction techniques (preference elicitation interfaces, recommendation
presentation, explanations, and more);
- Tools for development and analysis of recommender systems (design tools,
evaluation systems, analytics tools);
- Innovative applications of recommender systems;
- Recommender experiments (showing something new to RecSys attendees could
be a valuable source of data on user interaction with your recommender

RecSys demos provide innovators and researchers a unique opportunity to get
feedback from the recommender systems community on their ideas. RecSys has
an excellent history of being well-attended by industry representatives —
past conferences have had attendees and presenters from Ebay, Pandora,
Twitter, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Netflix, Amazon, IBM, etc. The blend
of industry and academic attention provides an excellent environment to
demonstrate and discuss your latest invention or idea. Taking advantage of
this environment, the demo track is particularly useful for several groups:
- Researchers wanting to allow attendees to interact with their work, not
just see it - presented, and possibly gather usage data for feedback;
- Deployed recommender systems available to interact with;
- Early stage start-ups looking to showcase their ideas and gain feedback
and exposure.

Demos should be submitted in PDF format through the Easychair system (  and must
- A two-page demo summary that includes a link to a narrated screen capture
of your system in action (ideally a video). This two-page summary of
accepted demo will be included in the conference proceedings. For a
formatting template, please see (tighter
alternate style);
- A one-page description of the demonstrated system and the required setup.
If the system will feature an installable component (e.g., mobile app) or
web site for users to use throughout or after the conference, please
mention this. The description should also provide information about the
presenter(s), including their relationship to the project.

Note: At least one of the authors of each accepted demo is required to
attend the conference.
