Inclusion

As the organizers of RecSys 2024, we are committed to providing an inclusive, safe, and respectful conference environment for all attendees. Given the impact of our community’s work on society, we appreciate now more than ever the importance of providing an inclusive and accessible conference that brings together a diverse recommender systems community.

We are continuing several inclusion initiatives that turned out successful in past RecSys conferences:

  • As last year, RecSys will provide deeply discounted rates for attendees registering in countries designated by ACM as “economically developing” (categorization based on World Bank GNI), acknowledging the impact of exchange rates and international inequities. These will be available directly on the RecSys 2024 registration page.
  • Care grants are designed to cover extra costs for caring for dependents if attendees’ caretaker responsibilities are a barrier to their participation in the conference. Parents with young children can find child care facilities listed on the location page, closer to the conference dates. Applicants do not need to have a paper accepted to obtain the grant. Applications will open on May 1st and will be reviewed on a weekly basis.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the chairs at .
