                                to be held in
                  Vancouver, Canada, 2nd-7th October 2018

Call for Demos

Allowing the user to see and use a demo of a research project makes them
excited about it – it makes the work real and tangible. Demos are one of
the most effective ways to show other people why the ideas matter. Beyond
just advertising and exposure, demos make other people inspired by the work.

We invite demonstrations of developments in all aspects of recommender
systems, for example:

Interaction techniques (preference elicitation interfaces, recommendation
presentation, explanations, and more)
Tools for development and analysis of recommender systems (design tools,
evaluation systems, analytics tools)
Innovative applications of recommender systems
Recommender user experiments
Demos should be described in PDF format, in English, formatted according to
the ACM Proceedings template for US Letter size, viewable on any platform.
Submit the description to EasyChair.

The description of the demo must include the following:

A link to a narrated screen capture of your system in action (ideally a
An overview of the algorithm or system that is the core of the demo,
including citations to any publications that support the work.
A discussion of the purpose and the novelty of the demo.
A description of the required setup. If the system will feature an
installable component (e.g., mobile app) or website for users to use
throughout or after the conference, please mention this.
Demos must not be under review in any other conference at the time of
submission and must contain novel contributions. All submissions will be
double-blind peer reviewed. This means that submissions must not include
information identifying the authors or their organization. Specifically, do
not include the authors’ names and affiliations, and anonymize
self-citations, acknowledgments, and funding sources. At least one of the
authors of each accepted demo is required to attend the conference.

Demo submission deadline: July 2nd, 2018
Demo notification: July 16th, 2018
Camera-ready demo summary deadline: August 6th, 2018
Deadlines refer to 23:59 (11:59pm) in the AoE (Anywhere on Earth) time zone.
