RecSys 2014: CALL FOR DEMOS

===================================================

8th ACM International Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys 2014)

October 6-10, 2014, Foster City, Silicon Valley, USA

http://recsys.acm.org/recsys14/

Demo Submission Deadline: July 21st 2014

===============================================================

RecSys 2014 is pleased to invite proposals for demos to be presented in
conjunction with the conference. The demo session provides an exciting way
for researchers and developers to present new recommender ideas, show off
their work, and get valuable feedback from the recommender systems
community.

We invite demonstrations of developments in 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 experiments (showing something new to RecSys attendees could
   be a valuable source of data on user interaction with your recommender
   concept).


RecSys demos provide innovators and researchers a unique opportunity to get
feedback from the recommender systems community on their ideas. RecSys has
an excellent history of being well-attended by industry representatives —
past conferences have had attendees and presenters from Ebay, Pandora,
Twitter, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Netflix, Amazon, IBM, etc. The blend
of industry and academic attention provides an excellent environment to
demonstrate and discuss your latest invention or idea. Taking advantage of
this environment, the demo track is particularly useful for several groups:

   -

   Researchers wanting to allow attendees to interact with their work, not
   just see it presented, and possibly gather usage data for feedback;
   -

   Deployed recommender systems available to interact with;
   -

   Early stage start-ups looking to showcase their ideas and gain feedback
   and exposure.


Submissions

===============================================================

Demos should be submitted in PDF format through the Easychair system (
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=recsys14demoposter)  and must
include:

   -

   A two-page demo summary that includes a link to a narrated screen
   capture of your system in action (ideally a video). This two-page summary
   of accepted demo will be included in the conference proceedings. For a
   formatting template, please see
   http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates (tighter
   alternate style);
   -

   A one-page description of the demonstrated system and the required
   setup. If the system will feature an installable component (e.g., mobile
   app) or web site for users to use throughout or after the conference,
   please mention this. The description should also provide information about
   the presenter(s), including their relationship to the project.


Note: At least one of the authors of each accepted demo is required to
attend the conference.
