ACM Recommender Systems 2011 (RecSys) Workshop on

Personalization in Mobile Applications

Description | Call for Papers | Programme | Organizers

ACM RecSys 2011. Chicago, Illinois, USA. October 23-27, 2011.

New Submission Deadline: August 1, 2011

The rise of location-enabled mobile phones and location based services offers a great opportunity to apply personalization and recommender system technology to people's everyday lives. A variety of digital traces can now be used to infer how people move about their city and extract their context and habits. Personalization and recommender systems, potentially merged with the data that people store online (e.g., social networks, web ratings), can then not only be used to recommend new places and events that they may find interesting to attend, but, more broadly, personalize and enhance any service that people find themselves using.

The workshop topics can be seen in the call for papers.

Invited Speakers:

  • Anthony Tomasic, CMU, "Tiramisu: Transit Service Design and Implementation via Crowdsourcing"
  • Christine Outram, MIT, "The Copenhagen Wheel"
  • Janne Lindqvist, Rutgers University, "Understanding mobile social networks: Why people do (not) check-in"
