Demos show implementations of novel, interesting, and important recommender systems' concepts or applications. Allowing potential users to see and use a demo of a research work makes them excited about it - it makes the work real and tangible. Demos also allow developers from small start-ups to large industries to present new recommender ideas and get valuable feedback from the recommender systems community.

RecSys has an excellent history of being well-attended by industry representatives - past conferences have had attendees and presenters from Netflix, Amazon, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Criteo, Pandora, Spotify, etc. The blend of industry and academic attention provides an excellent environment to demonstrate and discuss latest inventions or ideas.

We invite demonstrations relevant to 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 user experiments
* Recommender platforms


Demos should be described in PDF format, in English, formatted according to the ACM Proceedings template, viewable on any platform and should be 2 pages including references. Submit the description via EasyChair.

The description of the demo must include the following:

* An overview of the algorithm or system that is the core of the demo, including citations to any publications that support the work.
* A discussion of the purpose and the novelty of the demo.
* A description of the required setup. If the system will feature an installable component (e.g., mobile app) or website for users to use throughout or after the conference, please mention this.
* A link to a narrated screen capture of your system in action, ideally a video. (This section will be removed for camera-ready version of accepted contributions.)
Demos must not be under review in any other conference at the time of submission and must contain novel contributions. All submissions will be single-blind peer reviewed. This means that submissions should include information identifying the authors and their organization. At least one of the authors of each accepted demo is required to attend the conference.

The camera-ready version of the 2-page submission will be included in the main conference proceedings.

Note: At least one of the authors of each accepted demo is required to attend the conference. Furthermore, accepted contributions will have to display a poster along with their demo.


* Demo submission deadline: June 2nd, 2019
* Demo notification: June 17th, 2019
* Camera-ready demo summary deadline: July 22nd, 2019
Deadlines refer to 23:59 (11:59pm) in the AoE (Anywhere on Earth) time zone.
