ACM Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys 2017)

to be held in
Como, Italy, 27th-31th August 2017

Dear all,

We are pleased to invite you to contribute to the Eleventh ACM Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys 2017), the premier venue for research and applications of recommendation technologies. The upcoming RecSys conference will be held in Como, Italy, from August, 27th to August 31st, 2017. The conference will continue RecSys’ practice of connecting the research and practitioner communities to exchange ideas, frame problems, and share solutions. All the accepted papers will be published by ACM.

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 knowledge-based reasoning. Topics of interest for RecSys 2017 include (but are not limited to):
- 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
- Innovative/New applications
- Machine learning for recommendation
- Mobile and multi-channel recommendations
- Novel paradigms
- Personalisation
- Preference elicitation
- Privacy and Security
- Recommendation algorithms
- Social recommenders
- Semantic technologies for recommendation
- Trust and reputation
- Theoretical foundations
- User interaction and interfaces
- User modelling
The authors will be asked to indicate whether their paper is primarily Algorithm or Application focussed. Algorithm papers should discuss novel algorithmic approaches to recommendation challenges, with appropriate evaluations and comparisons to baseline works. Application papers should discuss new domains or large-scale applications of recommenders or focus on user experience, interface, or impact. This will allow the PC Chairs to better assign reviewers and to balance the program.


LONG PAPERS should report on substantial contributions of lasting value. The maximum length is 8 pages (plus up to 1 page references). Each accepted long paper will be included in the conference proceedings and presented in a plenary session as part of the main conference program. We expect the review process to be highly selective: the acceptance rates for full papers in the past three years were 20-24%.

SHORT PAPERS typically discuss exciting new work that is not yet mature enough for a long paper. The maximum length is 4 pages (plus up to 1 page references). Each accepted short paper will be included in the conference proceedings and presented in a plenary session as part of the main conference. The presentation may include a system demonstration. Note that rejected long paper submissions will not be considered as short papers.


RecSys 2017 is a SIGCHI conference and making a submission to a SIGCHI conference is a serious matter. Submissions require time and effort by SIGCHI volunteers to organise and manage the reviewing process, and, if the submission is accepted, the publication and presentation process. Thus, anyone who submits to RecSys 2017 implicitly confirms the following statements:
- I confirm that this submission is the work of myself and my co-authors.
- I confirm that I or my co-authors hold copyright to the content, and have obtained appropriate permissions for any portions of the content that are copyrighted by others.
- I confirm that any research reported in this submission involving human subjects has gone through the appropriate approval process at my institution.
- I confirm that if this paper is accepted, I or one of my co-authors will attend the conference. Papers that are not presented at the conference by an author may be removed from the proceedings at the discretion of the program chairs.


All submissions and reviews will be handled electronically. RecSys 2017 submissions should be prepared according to the standard double-column ACM SIG proceedings format. Additional information about formatting and style files is available online, see:
Papers must be submitted to EasyChair by 23:59, AoE (Anywhere on Earth) on April 3rd, 2017, see:
There will be no extensions to the submission deadline.

The peer review process is double-blind (i.e. anonymised). This means that all submissions must not include information identifying the authors or their organisation. Specifically, do not include the authors’ names and affiliations, anonymise citations to your previous work and avoid providing any other information that would allow to identify the authors, such as acknowledgments and funding.

Please take note that the official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.


Abstract submission deadline: March 27th, 2017
Paper submission deadline: April 3rd, 2017
Author notification: June 12th, 2017
Camera-ready version deadline: July 7th, 2017

Deadlines refer to 23:59 (11:59pm) in the AoE (Anywhere on Earth) time zone.
