Doctoral Symposium

The Doctoral Symposium provides an opportunity for doctoral students working in recommender systems research to receive critical feedback about their work and to further develop their research agenda under the guidance of distinguished and established researchers in recommender systems. Each doctoral student will be paired with two mentors who will provide feedback and guide the discussion of the student’s work during the Symposium. The small group setting of the symposium will also allow for an open discussion of issues and challenges related to the work presented by students.

This year, the symposium will be held on-site with support for remote attendance.
