                   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 (http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template) for US Letter size, viewable on any platform and should be no longer than 2 pages including references. Submit the description to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=recsys2018posters. 

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 arxiv.org (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.
