Personality and emotions shape our daily lives by having a strong 
influence on our preferences, decisions, and behaviour in general. In 
recent years, emotions and personality have shown to play an important 
role in various aspects of personalized systems, such as implicit 
feedback, contextual information, affective content labelling, 
cold-start problem, diversity, cross-domain recommendations, group 
recommendations, e-learning, conversational systems, music information 
retrieval, etc. With the development of robust techniques for the 
unobtrusive acquisition of emotions (e.g., from various modalities, such 
as video or physiological sensors) and personality (e.g., from social 
media) the time is right to take advantage of these possibilities to 
collect massive datasets and improve recommender systems.

We invite you to submit the outcomes of your work on the above topics to 
this Special Issue. The goal of the Special Issue is to make available 
the knowledge that builds on recent advances, such as the ones presented 
at the EMPIRE workshop series (
