It'd be interesting to see some RDF, FOAF and SemWeb apps...

Beyond Personalization 2005 
A Workshop on the Next Stage of Recommender Systems Research

In conjunction with 

the 2005 International Conference on 
Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI 2005)

San Diego, California
January 9-12, 2005


Workshop Topics and Goals

This workshop intends to bring recommender systems researchers and
practitioners together in order to discuss the current state of
recommender systems research, both on existing and emerging research
topics, and to determine how research in this area should proceed.  We
are at a pivotal point in recommender systems research where
researchers are both looking inward at what recommender systems are
and looking outward at where recommender systems can be applied, and
the implications of applying them out 'in the wild.'  This creates a
unique opportunity to both reassess the current state of research and
directions research is taking in the near and long term.

This workshop will focus on the following four main topics: 

1. Understanding and trusting recommender systems.  

Do users understand and trust the recommendations they receive from
recommender systems, what kinds of information do recommenders need to
provide to users to build trust, and how difficult is it to regain
trust in a recommender if it is lost?

2. User interfaces for recommender systems.

What are good ways to present recommendations to users, how do you
integrate recommenders into the displays of existing information
systems, and how can interfaces encourage users to provide ratings in
order to 'close the loop' for recommendations, that is, how can you
get users to consume the items recommended and then tell the system
how good the recommendations are?

3. The future of recommendation algorithms and their metrics.

How can we generate better individual and group recommendations,
develop new metrics and evaluation criteria for recommendations, and
achieve cross-domain recommendations?

4. Social consequences and opportunities of recommender systems.

How do individuals and groups of people respond to recommendations,
how can recommendations be integrated with online and real world
communities, and in what ways do recommendations affect social

Intended Audience

The workshop is intended for both established researchers and
practioners in the domain of recommender systems as well as for new
researchers and students with interesting ideas on recommender systems
and their future.  Participants do not have to come from a specific
application domain, as long as their research or ideas are on one of
the main topics of the workshop.

Paper Submission

Two types of contributions are invited:

1. Papers describing (ongoing) work on one or more of the topics for
   the workshop.
2. Position statements regarding one or more of the topics for the

Both papers and position statements should be prepared according to
the IUI 2005 Instructions for Authors, and should not exceed 6 pages
for papers and 2 pages for position statements. Acceptable formats are
PostScript and PDF.

Please send the paper or position statement not later than 8 November
2004 by e-mail to mcnee@cs.umn.edu, cc: Mark.vanSetten@telin.nl

Each paper and position statement will be reviewed by at least two
reviewers. Accepted contributions will be published in the workshop
proceedings and will be available on the Web before the workshop

Authors whose papers or position statements are accepted to this
workshop are expected to attend both the workshop and IUI 2005. The
workshop format will be panel-based with the authors of the best
submitted papers appearing on the panels and include interactive
sessions with all participants.
