ACM International Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys) 2012
September 9-13, 2012, Dublin, Ireland

Abstract Submission Deadline: April 2nd, 2012
Paper Submission Deadline: April 9th, 2012


We are pleased to invite you to participate in the premier annual event on research and
applications of recommendation technologies, the Sixth ACM Conference on Recommender
Systems (RecSys 2012). The conference will be held on September 9-13 in Dublin, Ireland.
Previous conferences have been distinguished by a strong level of interaction between
researchers and practitioners in the sharing of ideas, problems and solutions, and the 2012
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

Topics of Interest

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. Topics of
interest for RecSys 2012 include (but are not limited to):

- Algorithm scalability
- Case studies of real-world implementations
- Computational advertising
- Conversational recommender systems
- Context-aware and multidimensional models
- Evaluation metrics and studies
- Explanations and evidence
- Group recommenders
- Impact studies
- Innovative/New applications
- Machine learning for recommendation
- Novel paradigms
- Personalization
- Preference elicitation
- Recommendation algorithms
- Social recommenders
- User interfaces
- Security, privacy, trust, and reputation
- Semantic web technologies for recommendation
- Theoretical foundations
- User modelling
- User studies

Paper Format and Submission

All submissions and reviews will be handled electronically in PDF format. RecSys 2012
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 are available at http://recsys2012.ucd.ie/submission.html.

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. Each accepted long
paper will be presented in a plenary session as part of the main conference program. We
expect the review process to be highly selective: in 2011, the acceptance rate for full
papers was 20%.

Short paper submissions typically discuss exciting new work that is not yet mature enough
for a long paper. The maximum length is 4 pages in the standard ACM SIG proceedings format.
Each accepted short paper will be presented in a poster session. The presentation may
include a system demonstration.
Note: Please note that rejected long paper submissions will not be automatically considered
as short papers
