2nd International ACM Recommender Systems Conference (RecSys2009)

October 20, 2008

The Human Computer Interaction Group is proud to be the local organiser of the 2nd International ACM Recommender Systems Conference that took place 23-25 October at EPFL.

As the Web grows, finding information is increasingly more challenging. Recommender systems are emerging Web-based technologies, setting the standards for discovery and personalization in today’s social networking-dominated web 2.0 environment. With 200 international participants, the Recommender Systems’ conference will showcase the state-of-the-art in recommenders: new filtering techniques, performance enhancers, challenges and revolutionary interfaces. In addition, an industry panel will present the major recommender applications in industry and a $100’000 award will be presented to the winner of a contest for startup companies in the field. This premier annual event on research and applications of recommender technologies is co-organised by EPFL’s Human Computer Interaction Group.

General Chair: Dr. Pearl Pu.
