Call for papers:
Joint Workshop on Interfaces and Human Decision Making for Recommender

Held in conjunction with the ACM Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys
15-19 September 2016, Boston, USA.

Submission deadline: June 24, 2016
Submission site:

As an interactive intelligent system, recommender systems are developed to
suggest items that match users’ preferences. Since the emergence of
recommender systems, a large majority of research has focused on objective
accuracy criteria and less attention has been paid to how users interact
with the system and the efficacy of interface designs from users’
perspectives. The field has reached a point where it ready to look beyond
algorithms, into users’ interactions, decision making processes and
overall experience.

This workshop focuses on integrating different theories of human decision
making into the construction of recommender systems. This year it will
focus particularly on the impact of interfaces on decision support and
overall satisfaction.

The aim is to bring together researchers and practitioners around the
topics of designing and evaluating novel intelligent interfaces for
recommender systems in order to: (1) share research and techniques,
including new
design technologies and evaluation methodologies (2) identify next key
challenges in the area, and (3) identify emerging topics. This workshop
aims at creating an interdisciplinary community with a focus on the
interface design issues for recommender systems and promoting
collaboration opportunities between researchers and practitioners. We
particularly encourage demos and mock-ups of systems to be used as a basis
of a lively and interactive discussion in the workshop.

Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:

User Interfaces

* Visual interfaces for recommender systems
* Explanation interfaces for recommender systems.
* Collaborative multi-user interfaces (e.g., group decision making in
* Spoken and natural language interfaces
* Trust-aware interfaces
* Social interfaces
* Context-aware interfaces
* Ubiquitous and mobile interfaces
* Conversational interfaces
* Example- and demonstration-based interfaces
* New approaches to designing interfaces for recommender systems
* User interfaces for decision making (e.g., decision strategies and user

Interaction, user modeling and decision-making

* Cognitive Modeling for recommender systems
* Human-recommender interaction
* Controllability, transparency and scrutability
* Decision theories in recommender systems (e.g., priming, framing, and
decoy effects)
* Detection and avoidance of decision biases (e.g., in item presentations)
* Preference detection (e.g., eye tracking for automated preference
* The role of emotions in recommender systems (e.g., emotion-aware
* Trust inspiring recommendation (e.g., explanation-aware recommendation)
* Argumentation and Persuasive recommendation (e.g., argumentation-aware
* Cultural differences (e.g., culture-aware recommendation)
* Mechanisms for effective group decision making (e.g., group recommendation
* Decision theories for effective group decision making (e.g., hidden
profile management)
* Voting Advice Applications


* Case studies
* Benchmarking platforms
* Empirical studies and evaluations of new interfaces
* Empirical studies and evaluations of new interaction designs
* Evaluation methods and metrics (e.g., evaluation questionnaire design)


We encourage two kinds of submissions which address novel interface issues
recommender systems:

- Short papers. The maximum length is 4 pages in the standard ACM SIG
proceedings format.
- Long papers. The maximum length is 8 pages in the standard ACM SIG
proceedings format.

Submission site:

Submitted papers will be evaluated according to their originality, 
technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the workshop. 
For short papers we will encourage alternative modes of presentation 
such as demos, playing out of scenarios, mockups, and alternate media 
such as video. 
Demonstration sessions will provide the opportunity to show innovative 
interface designs for recommender systems.

Each paper will be reviewed by at least 3 independent referees. Accepted
papers will published in workshop proceedings on the site.
Note that at least one author of each accepted paper needs to register 
and attend the workshop.
