RecTour 2018 - Workshop on Recommenders in Tourism at ACM RecSys 2018 co-organised by EC-Group

The EC group co-organises the workshop RecTour 2018 that is held in conjunction with the 12th ACM Conference on Recommender Systems in Vancouver, Canada, that takes place from October 2nd-7, 2018. It will be held as a one day workshop on October 7th, 2018.

The 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., time, location, weather). RecTour 2018 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, project ideas as well as demonstration systems.
