RecTour 2017 - Workshop on Recommenders in Tourism at ACM RecSys 2017 (co-organised by EC-Group)

The EC group co-organises the workshop RecTour 2017 that is held in conjunction with the 11th ACM Conference on Recommender Systems in Como, Italy, that takes place from August 27th to August 31st, 2017. It will be held as a one day workshop.

This workshop addresses specific challenges for recommender systems in the tourism domain. Planning a vacation usually involves searching for a set of products that are interconnected (e.g., transportation, lodging, attractions) with limited availability, and where contextual aspects may have a major impact (e.g., spatiotemporal context). RecTour 2017 aims at attracting presentations of novel ideas in order to advance the current state of the art in the field of tourism recommenders; topics include specific applications and case studies (evaluation), specific methods and techniques, context and mobility, the cold-start problem, preference elicitation, and emotions and recommenders. Researchers and practitioners from different fields are invited to submit research and position papers as well as demonstration systems.
