		Decision Making and Recommender Systems Workshop
			   Bolzano, November 29-30, 2018
		Extended Deadline for Participation: 8 October 2018


This workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners 
from different research communities, such as human computer interaction, 
decision-making and recommender systems, to discuss open issues related 
to the design and usage of recommender systems. Six long invited talks 
of renowned scholars will introduce broad and important topics and a 
large space for discussion and brainstorming will be given. 
Interdisciplinary research challenges and emerging research directions 
will be brought to the forefront.

Motivation and Topics

While most of the research in recommender systems is focusing on 
recommendation techniques (algorithms), which often boils down to rating 
or ranking prediction algorithms, there is still too little discussion 
on the impact of the system’s generated recommendations and the designed 
system/user interaction on user decision making. However, supporting and 
influencing the decision-making process is the true ultimate goal of a 
recommender system. Hence, it is important to design new recommendation 
techniques and interaction modalities that can effectively support users 
in making better decisions.

In particular, this year we aim at going beyond the analysis of a single 
user/system interaction and therefore discuss the global effects of 
recommendations on a network of users. In fact, recommenders are 
accessed by networked users (e.e., in social networks) which are 
mutually influencing and also determine the system computed recommendations.

Specific Topics:

- Social choice
- Group Decision Making
- Multi agent systems
- Network Analysis
- Information Diffusion in Networks
- Ecology of Decision Making
- Societal implications of information filtering and personalisation
- Persuasion in social networks
- Social Psychology of Decision Making
- Social Robots and recommendations
- Reciprocal Recommender Systems

Invited Speakers

- Allison Stanger, Middlebury College, USA
- Paul Resnick, University of Michigan, USA
- Natali Helberger, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
- Ariel Rosenfeld, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel
- Aristides Gionis, Aalto University, Finland
- Daniele Quercia, Bell Labs, Cambridge, UK


We have a limited number of places for participating to the workshop. In 
order to apply for the participation, please submit an extended 
abstract/position paper through . We will evaluate the 
submissions and notify the authors about the acceptance. Authors of the 
submissions that will be deemed of particular interest will be invited 
to prepare a short presentation.

Registration Fee
The registration fee is 100 euro and will cover coffee breaks, lunches 
and a social dinner.
