RecSys'09: Third ACM Conference on Recommender Systems

October 22-25, 2009
New York City

Note: Paper Submission Deadline has been extended!
# Deadline for abstracts (mandatory): May 8, 12.00 pm (PST)
# Deadline for full papers (long/short): May 14, 12.00 pm (PST) 

We are pleased to invite you once again to participate in the premier annual
event on research and applications of recommendation technologies, the Third
ACM Conference on Recommender Systems. The previous conferences in
Minneapolis and Lausanne have been distinguished by a strong level of
interaction between practitioners and researchers in the sharing of ideas,
problems and solutions, and the 2009 conference will continue in this
tradition. The fully-refereed proceedings will be published by the ACM and,
like past RecSys proceedings, are expected to be widely read and cited.


Technical Program

The technical program will celebrate the diversity of research in and
applications of recommender systems with refereed and invited presentations,
keynote talks and posters.


The first day of the conference will be devoted to tutorials in which top
practitioners and researchers share their expertise and latest results. The
tutorials at the 2008 conference were highly-attended.


To reflect the diversity of research in recommender systems and to give
additional venues for the presentation of research, the conference will
feature workshops for the first time. Look for the Call for Workshops
announcement on the website, or send email to [log in to unmask] if
you are interested in organizing a workshop.

Doctoral Symposium

The Doctoral Symposium provides an opportunity for doctoral students to
explore and develop their research interests in an interdisciplinary
workshop, under the guidance of a panel of distinguished research faculty.
Look for the Call for Participation announcement on the website, or send
email to [log in to unmask] if you are interested in participating.

We construe recommender systems broadly, including applications ranging from
e-commerce to social networking, platforms from web to mobile and beyond,
and a wide variety of technologies ranging from collaborative filtering to
case-based reasoning. Therefore, topics of interest for RecSys'09 include
(but are not limited to):

* Case studies of recommender system implementations
* Conversational recommender systems
* Context-aware and multidimensional recommender systems
* Evaluation of recommender systems
* Group recommenders
* The impact of recommenders in practice
* Innovative recommender applications
* Novel paradigms of recommender systems
* Personalization
* Recommendation algorithms
* Recommendation in social networks
* Recommender system interfaces
* Scalability issues
* Security and privacy
* Semantic web technologies for recommender systems
* Theoretical aspects of recommender systems
* User modeling and recommender systems
* User studies


The conference will present a Best Paper and a Best Poster award, with the
Best Poster award being judged on both the (short) paper itself and on the
presentation of the work in poster form.


All submissions and reviews will be handled electronically in PDF format.
RecSys09 submissions should be prepared according to the standard ACM SIG
proceedings format. For your convenience, we provide paper templates in
Microsoft Word and LaTeX on the conference website.

There are two paper categories:

- LONG PAPER submissions should report on substantial contributions of
lasting value. Each accepted long paper will be presented in a plenary
session of the main conference program. The maximum length is 8 pages in the
standard ACM SIG proceedings format.

- SHORT PAPER submissions typically discuss exciting new work that is not
yet mature enough for a long paper. Each accepted short paper will be
presented in a poster/demo session. The presentation may include a system
demonstration. The maximum length is 4 pages in the standard ACM SIG
proceedings format.

RecSys '09 will not use blind review, so please include authors' names and
affiliations on your submission. See the conference website for further
submission information including submission URL.
