Social 3: Women in RecSys

Continuing the tradition started in 2014 to foster diversity among the RecSys community, we are happy to offer a platform where all conference attendees who identify as females can celebrate and connect with other women in the RecSys community. The event provides an opportunity for female attendees to share the challenges and successes of women working within our community and to exchange experiences with one another.

This year’s event is co-hosted by Julia Neidhardt (TU Wien, Austria) and Hanna Schäfer (University of Konstanz, Germany). The event will take place in and will be hosted twice to increase accessibility from different time zones.

To ease newcomers into this online event, we are searching for volunteers at each of these time slots that will stay at one theme-based table and initiate or steer the conversation. Themes could be (but are not limited to) things connected to work phases (e.g., my Ph.D. experience, or my next application interview), to research topics (e.g., all about movie recommenders or all about deep leaning), or diversity topics (e.g., gender bias in different work environments or networking opportunities). Anyone interested in being a theme host, please contact us with your preferred time slot and theme at .
