                   Call for Papers: ACM RecSys 2018
                                to be held in
                  Vancouver, Canada, 2nd-7th October 2018

*Call for Late-Breaking Results*

The Late-Breaking Results track of RecSys offers an opportunity for
presenting new, preliminary results and speculative or innovative work in
progress. This work will be presented in the poster session, where the
informal setting encourages presenters and participants to engage in lively
discussions about the presented work. All submissions should convey a
scientific result or work in progress that is not yet ready to be published
as a full-length research paper at a refereed conference, but the
preliminary results are already interesting.


All submissions will be double-blind peer reviewed. Late-breaking results
must not be under review in any other conference at the time of submission
and must contain novel contributions. 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.

Results should be described in PDF format, in English, formatted according
to the ACM Proceedings template ( for US Letter size,
viewable on any platform and should be no longer than 2 pages including
references. Submit the description to

In addition to the two-page submission, accepted authors will be asked to
create a poster to be displayed at the conference in a dedicated poster
area, and present their work during the poster session. At least one of the
authors of each accepted work is required to attend the conference.

Together with the Demos, we will ask authors of accepted papers to upload
their papers on (chairs can provide arxiv endorsement for
accepted papers if needed). The links to these papers will be used to
compile an online proceeding published (together with the Demos) on the ACM
RecSys’18 website.
