Types of contributions:
- Research paper: The presentation length of a research paper is 20 minutes. After that, there will be time for discussion (approximately 10 minutes).
- Demo paper: The authors of a demo paper will introduce their system to the audience in session 3. These presentations should not exceed 10 minutes, with a short discussion (approximately 5 minutes) directly afterwards. In the coffee break after session 3, the workshop participants have the opportunity to interact with the introduced systems.
- Position paper: The position papers provide the basis for the panel discussion in session 4. The authors of such a paper will present background and motivation of their contribution, phrase specific challenges and outline important future research directions. These presentations should not exceed 10 minutes, with a short discussion (approximately 5 minutes) directly afterwards.
ACM RecSys 2016 and the workshops held in conjunction with the conference will take place at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and IBM Research in Cambridge, MA, USA. The RecTour workshop will take place at IBM Research (Room 2224).
