Call for Industry Talk Proposals

ACM RecSys 2018  
Vancouver, Canada,7th October 2018

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the Twelfth ACM Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys 2018), the premier venue for research and applications of recommendation technologies. ACM RecSys 2018 will be held in Vancouver, Canada, from October 3rd to October 6th, 2018. The conference will continue RecSys’ practice of connecting the research and practitioner communities to exchange ideas, discuss problems, and share solutions.

Industry practitioners are invited to submit talk proposals to the RecSys conference industry track. This track seeks presentations about challenges and practical solutions to significant real-world issues faced by industry practitioners. We encourage submissions that describe substantial challenges that were overlooked by the research community and your promising new approaches that could foster discussion and collaboration. We also recognize that diverse speaker backgrounds and topics facilitate richer discussions at the conference, therefore we especially encourage women and under-represented colleagues to submit talk proposals.

Examples of talk topics include, but are not limited to:

   - Challenges faced by practitioners that are under-studied in the
   research community and practical solutions
   - Novel techniques that solve significant issues in practice
   - Case studies of real-world implementations
   - Evaluation metrics and studies
   - Field and user studies
   - Lessons learned from real world deployments
   - Novel recommender system applications

Note that although industry talks are solicited separately, we expect to create a combined single track program from both accepted papers and industry talks in 2018 Recsys. Furthermore, selected proposals should be accompanied by a poster for the conference.


We are accepting proposals for Industry talks under 20min(exact length TBD). Proposals must include the following:

   - Title and abstract of the proposal presentation (1 page)
   - Short CV of the presenter(s) (up to 300 words)

Talk proposals should be emailed to [log in to unmask].


Proposals must be submitted before the submission deadline of May 7th,
2018 to receive full consideration.

Submitters will be notified of talk acceptance or rejection by July 9th, 2018.
