12th ACM Conference on Recommender Systems

Vancouver, Canada, 2nd-7th October 2018

The ACM Recommender Systems conference (RecSys) is the premier international forum for the presentation of new research results, systems and techniques in the broad field of recommender systems. Recommendation is a particular form of information filtering, that exploits past behaviors and user similarities to generate a list of information items that is personally tailored to an end-user’s preferences. As RecSys brings together the main international research groups working on recommender systems, along with many of the world’s leading e-commerce companies, it has become the most important annual conference for the presentation and discussion of recommender systems research. RecSys 2018, the twelfth conference in this series, will be held in Vancouver, Canada. It will bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to present their latest results and identify new trends and challenges in providing recommendation components in a range of innovative application contexts. In addition to the main technical track, RecSys 2018 program will feature keynote and invited talks, tutorials covering state-of-the-art in this domain, a workshop program, an industrial track and a doctoral symposium.

Published papers will go through a rigorous full peer review process. The conference proceedings, which will be available both on a USB drive and via the ACM Digital Library, are expected to be widely read and cited.

ACM RecSys 2018 will take place in Vancouver, Canada, from October 2-7, 2018.
