9th ACM International Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys 2015)

September 16-20, 2015, Vienna, Austria

Submission Deadline: March 1, 2015

RecSys 2015 is pleased to invite proposals for workshops to be held in 
conjunction with the conference. The goal of the workshops is to provide 
additional venues for discussing novel ideas as well as recent results 
of research in progress in a relatively, small and focused groups, 
providing an informal forum to discuss research questions and challenges 
and get constructive feedback.

We encourage proposals for a wide range of workshops that encourage and 
foster interactive discussion, including but not limited to:

- Working group meetings organized around a specific problem; such 
workshops may wish to ask participants to submit a short white paper or 
position statement.
- One day mini-conferences on specialized topics; such workshops may 
have their own paper submission and review processes.
- Mini-competitions or challenges around selected topics with individual 
or team participation.
- Interactive discussion meetings focusing on a subtopic of recommender 
systems research.

We welcome proposals for half-day and full-day workshops.

We encourage you to contact us in advance with workshop ideas; we will 
work with prospective workshop organizers to help them design successful 
proposals. We actively encourage both researchers and industry 
practitioners to submit proposals.
