We’re excited to be doing quite a few things at RecSys 2017:
- Sole is co-organizing the KidRec workshop on Aug. 27.
- Michael has a position paper, “Challenges in Evaluating Recommendations for Children”, at KidRec.
- Poster “Can Readability Enhance Recommendations on Community Question Answering Sites?” by Oghenemaro Anuyah, Ion Madrazo Azpiazu, David McNeill and Sole Pera.
- Poster “The Demographics of Cool” by Michael Ekstrand and Sole Pera.
- Michael is co-organizing the FATREC Workshop on Responsible Recommendation on Aug. 31.
- A surprise.
We are also recruiting Ph.D students to work on various issues surrounding recommender systems, information retrieval, and people. If you’re interested, feel free to talk to either of us in Como.
We look forward to seeing you!
