Workshop on Offline Evaluation for Recommender Systems

Recommender systems are notoriously hard to evaluate offline due to their interactive and dynamic nature. This workshop will re-visit the problem of designing metrics for recommendations and optimizing for them. Topics include (but are not limited to): offline-online correlation, counterfactual inference, reinforcement learning and open datasets.

This workshop will foster creative discussions within the community, spanning academic and industrial backgrounds. A dedicated poster area will be available during the workshop.
