Call For Papers

2nd edition of the international conference Interdisciplinary Workshop on Recommender Systems

Cross points of view on Recommender Systems

Recommender Systems (RS) reach their maturity with undeniable ubiquity both on social media, in collaborative platforms or online sales. After three interdisciplinary workshops devoted to the subject (in 2012, 2015 and 2017), we are pleased to invite you to contribute to an interdisciplinary workshop on recommender systems to be held in Paris in october 2018.

Call for papers

Recommender systems are a central topic of study in several fields: from computer science to marketing through to information science. Both in academia and industry, there are a great variety of technical aspects to explore in recommender systems studies, such as machine learning, text mining, artificial intelligence (AI), network analysis, bibliometrics, databases, cloud computing, scalability, data science, visualization and human computer interaction (HCI). The motivation to organize InWoRS is to contrast points of view around Recommender Systems to generate fruitful collaborations and exchanges, in order to enrich the comprehension of RS for practitioners of the above-mentioned fields.

Submission System

Short and Long Papers should be submitted electronically via the submission system of each track.

Review Process

All submissions will follow a blind peer-review process. At least two different members of the scientific committee will review each paper. The selection criteria is based on originality, accordance to the theme and topics, scientific/technical contribution, and clarity of presentation.

Authors will receive notification of acceptance on May 18th 2018. If your paper is accepted you will be solicited to prepare the camera-ready version for its publication.


ACM will publish the proceedings of Digital Tools & Uses Congress in the ACM Digital Library within its International Conference Proceedings Series.

ACM will publish separately the proceedings of the Web Studies 2 track with its own identifier.

Accepted authors will be sent the ACM rights management form and complete instructions.

All rights management forms must be submitted and approved four weeks prior to the congress.

After completing their rights management form, authors will be emailed the correct rights text and bibliographic strip to place within their paper. Please inform authors that they must enter the text into their paper.
