Research Submission Highlights

Recommenders 2007 seeks high-quality, original submissions of reports on research about recommender systems. It encourages participation from around the globe by both academic and industrial researchers and developers. All submissions will be reviewed by a distinguished international program committee, and published both in a bound proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library.

Key dates and contact information:

Long paper deadline:  23:59 PDT, June 3, 2007

Short paper deadline:  23:59 PDT, June 10, 2007

Decision to authors:  July 16, 2007

Online submission system:

All long and short papers should be submitted through our online submission system:

The page limit for long papers is 8 pages, and for short papers is 4 pages. Recommenders '07 will not use blind review, so please include authors' names and affiliations on your submission. Submissions must be in PDF format. Recommenders '07 submissions should be prepared according to the standard ACM SIG Proceedings Format. For your convenience, ACM provides templates in Microsoft Word, Word Perfect, and LaTex formats.  Submissions will be through a web-based submission system.  Check back in early May for further information.

Is my research appropriate for Recommenders '07?

We construe recommenders broadly, including applications ranging from E-Commerce to cell phones, and a wide variety of technologies ranging from collaborative filtering to case-based reasoning. Feel free to email an abstract to the paper chairs ( or short paper chairs ( if you would like advice about whether your planned submission is a good fit for the conference.

Topics of interest for Recommenders '07 include all aspects of Recommenders, including:

  • the impact of recommenders in practice
  • the algorithms behind recommenders
  • theory of recommender systems
  • recommender interfaces
  • security and privacy in recommender systems
  • innovative recommender applications
  • group recommenders
  • personalization using recommenders
  • user modeling
  • user studies of recommenders

Submission of Long and Short Papers

There are two categories of paper submission:

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 two-column ACM conference paper 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 ACM format.

Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee.

An Outstanding Paper Award will be presented to the one or two strongest papers submitted to the long paper track. These papers will be selected by the program committee on the basis of the significance of the contribution, the relevance to the RecSys conference, and the quality of the writing. The Outstanding Paper(s) will be publicized before and after the conference, and the authors will receive a modest monetary award and a framed award certificate in recognition of their contribution to the field.

Accepted papers from both categories will be included in the conference proceedings, to be published in hard copy by the ACM Press and electronically in the ACM Digital Library.

Long and short papers must be formatted according to the ACM two-column proceedings format. Papers that exceed the length limit, or that squeeze extra text into the allowed number of pages via changes to the style, will not be reviewed.

Multiple submissions policy: A paper should not be submitted to RecSys 2007 if the same paper - or a substantially similar version - has already been accepted for publication by another conference or by a journal, if it is currently under review for another conference or journal, or if it will be submitted to another conference or journal before July 16, 2007.

Presentation policy:  By submitting a paper or short paper to RecSys 2007, the author(s) agree that, if the submission is accepted, at least one author will register for and attend the conference to present the work.

All long and short papers should be submitted through our online submission system:
