RecSys Track @ the 8th Italian Information Retrieval Workshop - IIR 2017

June 05-07, 2017

Università della Svizzera Italiana
Via G. Buffi, 13
Lugano, Switzerland

!!! For its 8th edition, IIR will host a track completely devoted to Recommender Systems together with the first meeting of the RecSys Italian chapter !!!


The purpose of the RecSys track at the 8th Italian Information Retrieval Workshop (IIR) is to gather together researchers working on recommender systems in the Italian community. Following the IIR style we aim at creating an informal space where Italian-speaking researchers (especially young ones) and researchers affiliated with Italian-speaking institutions can network and discuss their research results.

The last edition of ACM RecSys Conference showed Italy at the second place for the number of authors. The Italian community is clearly growing and, in this growing spirit, the RecSys track aims at being the first of a series of events organized around recommender systems.


RecSys @ IIR 2017 offers an opportunity to present and discuss both theoretical and empirical research. Relevant topics include, but are not restricted to, the following subjects:

Algorithm scalability
Case studies of real-world implementations
Conversational recommender systems
Context-aware recommenders
Evaluation metrics and studies
Explanations and evidence
Field and user studies
Group recommenders
Impact studies
Innovative/New applications
Machine learning for recommendation
Mobile and multi-channel recommendations
Novel paradigms
Preference elicitation
Privacy and Security
Recommendation algorithms
Social recommenders
Semantic technologies for recommendation
Targeted advertising
Trust and reputation
Theoretical foundations
User interaction and interfaces
User modeling


Submissions may range from theoretical works to system descriptions. They must be written in English and follow the guidelines set by Springer in the LNCS series (see web site for details). Submissions will be peer-reviewed and accepted papers will appear in the CEUR-WS on-line proceedings series, as happened for all previous IIR editions.

We particularly encourage PhD students or early-stage researchers to submit their work and also welcome contributions from industry. The conference languages are Italian and English.

Submission page : https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iir2017

Authors are invited to submit one of the following types of contributions:

* Full original papers (up to 12 pages);
* Short original papers (up to 8 pages);
* Extended abstracts containing descriptions of ongoing projects or presenting already published results (up to 4 pages).

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit their paper for
publication in the on-line proceedings, which will appear in the CEUR-WS
on-line proceedings series; the proceedings will be indexed by DBLP (as
happened for all other IIR since 2010).
At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the event in order to present the paper; accepted papers whose authors have not shown up at the workshop to present the paper will not be published in the proceedings.


* Submission deadline        : 31 March 2017
* Notification of acceptance : 05 May 2017
* IIR 2017 takes place on    : 05-07 June 2017


Registration to the IIR 2017 workshop will be very low, as for the tradition of IIR, but required.
