The ACM Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys 2020) is the premier venue for research and applications of recommendation technologies. One of our goals is to connect communities of researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry in order to exchange ideas, discuss problems, and share solutions.

Industry practitioners are invited to submit talk proposals to the RecSys conference industry track. The industry track is focused on challenges and practical solutions to significant real-world issues faced by industry practitioners. We encourage submissions that describe substantial real-world challenges and novel deployed systems that power recommendations in commercial settings. All submissions will be reviewed by the Industry chairs and the best proposals will be chosen based on merit and contribution to the community.

Examples of talk topics include, but are not limited to:
   * Challenges faced by practitioners that are under-studied in the research community and practical solutions
   * Novel techniques that solve significant issues in practice
   * Case studies of real-world implementations
   * Evaluation metrics and studies
   * Field and user studies
   * Lessons learned from real-world deployments
   * Novel recommender system applications
   * Fairness and bias of recommender systems

Authors of the selected proposals will give an oral presentation in the Industry Track and will also be invited to present a poster at the conference poster sessions.


All submissions and reviews will be handled electronically. Papers must be submitted to PCS by 23:59, AoE (Anywhere on Earth) on May 11th, 2020. There will be no extensions to the submission deadline.

Formatting. ACM is changing the archive format of its publications to separate content from presentation in the new Digital Library, enhance accessibility, and improve the flexibility and resiliency of our publications. Following the new ACM publication workflow, all authors should submit manuscripts for review in a single-column format. The maximum length for industry talk proposals is 2 pages (excluding references) in the new single-column format. Instructions for Word and LaTeX authors are given below:

   * Microsoft Word: Write your paper using the Submission Template (Review Submission Format). Follow the embedded instructions to apply the paragraph styles to your various text elements. The text is in single-column format at this stage and no additional formatting is required at this point.
   * LaTeX: Please use the latest version of the Master Article Template - LaTeX to create your submission. You must use the "manuscript" option with the \documentclass[manuscript]{acmart} command to generate the output in a single-column format which is required for review. Please see the LaTeX documentation and ACM's LaTeX best practices guide for further instructions. To ensure 100% compatibility with The ACM Publishing System (TAPS), please restrict the use of packages to the whitelist of approved LaTeX packages.

Authors are strongly encouraged to provide "alt text" (alternative text) for floats (images, tables, etc.) in their content so that readers with disabilities can be given descriptive information for these floats that are important to the work. The descriptive text will be displayed in place of a float if the float cannot be loaded. This benefits the author as well as it broadens the reader base for the author's work. Moreover, the alt text provides in-depth float descriptions to search engine crawlers, which helps to properly index these floats.

Should you have any questions or issues going through the instructions above, please contact support at [log in to unmask] for both LaTeX and Microsoft Word inquiries.

Accepted proposals will be later submitted to ACM's new production platform where authors will be able to review PDF and HTML output formats before publication.

Contents. Industry talk proposals must include the following:
   * Title and abstract of the proposal presentation
   * Short CV of the presenter(s) (up to 300 words)

Anonymity. All submissions will be single-blind peer reviewed. This means that submissions should include information identifying the authors and their organization.


   * Proposal submission deadline: May 11th, 2020
   * Author notification: July 13th, 2020
   * Camera-ready version deadline: July 27th, 2020


   * Kim Falk, Binary Vikings, Denmark
   * Noam Koenigstein, Microsoft & Tel-Aviv University, Israel
   * Edleno Moura, Universidade Federal do Amazonas, Brazil
