Workshop on

Recommender Systems meet Databases at DEXA 2011

Toulouse, France
August 29 - September 2, 2011



Submission of Full Papers: April 26, 2011 (extended)
Notification of Acceptance: April 26, 2011
Camera-ready Copies and Registration of Participation: May 23, 2011
Workshop: between August 29 and September 2, 2011


Recommender systems (RS) support users in personalized access to large
collections of data. From a technical perspective, RS have their origins
in different fields, such as Information Filtering and Data Mining and
they are built using a broad array of statistical methods and algorithms.
E-Commerce and consumer decision support applications have been the traditional
application domains of these types of systems.
However, the ever-increasing plethora of information supply due to cheap storage,
the web revolution and user generated content applications, fuels the need for
user-centric and context-aware information access and presentation in many more
database application domains.

The aim of this workshop is therefore to provide a forum for discussion and
presentation of latest results that are on the intersection of database and
recommender systems research.

Relevant topics for submissions include, but are not limited to:

* Preference and context modeling in Databases
- User and Community Modeling
- Reputation and Trust Modeling
- Context Modeling

* New Database Architectures integrating Recommender Systems
- Rank integration
- Resource recommendations
- Learning to rank
- Personal and social aspects in databases
- Query recommendations
- Personalized privacy preserving
- New data and query models involving users and contexts
- Scalability issues of databases and recommender systems

* Innovative applications of Recommender Systems in Databases
- Preference elicitation from the Deep Web
- Filtering based on data harvested from the Deep Web
- Content-based recommendations from BLOBs
- Reputation and trust management
- Social recommender systems
- Visual Analytics for Recommender Systems

* Semantics in Recommender Systems and Databases
- Semantic Indexing and Recommender Systems
- Semantic Annotation and Recommender Systems
- Semantic Deep Web and Recommender Systems
- Annotation and Indexing of the Deep Web for Recommender Systems
- Distributed Semantic Indexing for Recommender Systems
- Filtering of the Deep Web

* Evaluation methodologies and approaches
- User-centric evaluation
- Accuracy vs. error metrics
- Evaluating for novelty, diversity and serendipity
