RecSys 2015: CALL FOR PAPERS
9th ACM International Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys 2015)
September 16-20, 2015, Vienna, Austria
Submission Deadline: April 24, 2015
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the premier annual event
on research and applications of recommendation technologies, the Ninth
ACM Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys 2015).
The conference will be held in Vienna, Austria from Sept. 16th to Sept.
20th, 2015. Previous conferences have been distinguished by a strong
level of interaction between researchers and practitioners in the
sharing of ideas, problems and solutions. The 2015 conference will
continue and reinforce this tradition.
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 knowledge-based reasoning.
Topics of interest for RecSys 2015 include (but are not limited to):
- Algorithm scalability
- Case studies of real-world implementations
- Conversational recommender systems
- Context-aware recommenders
- Evaluation metrics and studies
- Explanations and evidence
- Field and user studies
- Group recommenders
- Impact studies
- Innovative/New applications
- Machine learning for recommendation
- Mobile and multi-channel recommendations
- Novel paradigms
- Preference elicitation
- Privacy and Security
- Recommendation algorithms
- Social recommenders
- Semantic technologies for recommendation
- Targeted advertising
- Trust and reputation
- Theoretical foundations
- User interaction and interfaces
- User modelling
There are two paper submission categories:
- LONG PAPER submissions should report on substantial contributions of
lasting value. The maximum length is 8 pages. Each accepted long paper
will be included in the conference proceedings and presented in a
plenary session as part of the main conference program. We expect the
review process to be highly selective: the acceptance rates for full
papers in the past three years were 20-24%.
- SHORT PAPER submissions typically discuss exciting new work that is
not yet mature enough for a long paper. The maximum length is 4 pages.
Each accepted short paper will be included in the conference proceedings
and presented in a poster session. The presentation may include a system
Note that rejected long paper submissions will not be considered as
Paper Format and Submission
All submissions and reviews will be handled electronically. RecSys 2015
submissions should be prepared in PDF format according to the standard
double-column ACM SIG proceedings format. Additional information about
formatting and style files are available online (tighter alternate style).
The peer review process is ***DOUBLE-BLIND*** (i.e. anonymized). This
means that all submissions must not include information identifying the
authors or their organization. Specifically, do not include the authors’
names and affiliations, anonymize citations to your own previous work
and avoid providing any other information that would allow to identify
the authors, such as acknowledgments and funding.
Papers must be electronically submitted to the EasyChair Website by
11:59pm in the UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) on April 24th 2015. In
order to be fair to all authors, there will be no extensions to the
submission deadline. Papers not submitted by the deadline will not be
Note that the EasyChair site allows you to upload updated versions of
your paper until the deadline – so you may want to upload an early
version of the paper which you can later (if you wish to) overwrite with
a newer version of the paper until the deadline.
SIGCHI Submitter Agreement
RecSys 2015 is a SIGCHI conference and making a submission to a SIGCHI
conference is a serious matter. Submissions require time and effort by
SIGCHI volunteers to organize and manage the reviewing process, and, if
the submission is accepted, the publication and presentation process.
Thus, anyone who submits to RecSys 2015 implicitly confirms the
