RecSys 2011: Fifth ACM Conference on Recommender Systems

October, 2011 (Check Web site for update on exact dates)
Chicago, IL, USA

Paper Abstract Submission Deadline: May 9, 2011
Paper Submission Deadline: May 16, 2011

We are pleased to invite you once again to participate in the premier annual event on research and applications of recommendation technologies, the Fifth ACM Conference on Recommender Systems. The previous conferences have been distinguished by a strong level of interaction between practitioners and researchers in the sharing of ideas, problems and solutions, and the 2011 conference will continue in this tradition. The fully-refereed proceedings will be published by the ACM and, like past RecSys proceedings, are expected to be widely read and cited.


We construe recommender systems broadly, including applications ranging from e-commerce to social networking, platforms from web to mobile and beyond, and a wide variety of technologies ranging from collaborative filtering to case-based reasoning. Therefore, topics of interest for RecSys 2011 include (but are not limited to):

  • Case studies of recommender system implementations
  • Computational advertising
  • Conversational recommender systems
  • Context-aware and multidimensional recommender systems
  • Evaluation of recommender systems
  • Group recommenders
  • Impact of recommenders in practice
  • Innovative recommender applications
  • Machine learning and recommender systems
  • Novel paradigms of recommender systems
  • Personalization
  • Preference elicitation
  • Recommendation algorithms
  • Recommendation in social networks
  • Recommender system interfaces
  • Scalability of recommendation techniques
  • Security, privacy, trust, and robustness
  • Semantic web technologies for recommender systems
  • Theoretical aspects of recommender systems
  • User modeling and recommender systems
  • User studies


Workshop Proposals: March 21
Deadline for abstracts (mandatory for long/short papers): May 9, 11.59 pm (PST)
Paper submission deadline: May 16, 11.59 pm (PST)
Paper Acceptance Notifications: July 15
Workshop paper submission deadline: July, 25
Doctoral Symposium Applications: to be announced
Camera-ready copy: August 7
Workshop papers acceptance notification: August, 19


All submissions and reviews will be handled electronically in PDF format. RecSys 2011 submissions should be prepared according to the standard ACM SIG proceedings format. For your convenience, we provide paper templates in Microsoft Word and LaTeX on the conference website. More details on the submission procedure will be available soon at the conference website

There are two paper submission categories:

– LONG PAPER submissions should report on substantial contributions of lasting value. The maximum length is 8 pages in the standard ACM SIG proceedings format.

– SHORT PAPER submissions typically discuss exciting new work that is not yet mature enough for a long paper. Each accepted short paper will be presented in a poster/demo session. The presentation may include a system demonstration. The maximum length is 4 pages in the standard ACM SIG proceedings format.
