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 (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 .
The description of the demo must include the following:
1. A link to a narrated screen capture of your system in action (ideally a video).
2. An overview of the algorithm or system that is the core of the demo, including citations to any publications that support the work.
3. A discussion of the purpose and the novelty of the demo
4. 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 2, 2018
Demo notification: July 16, 2018
Camera-ready demo summary deadline: August 8, 2018
Deadlines refer to 23:59 (11:59pm) in the AoE (Anywhere on Earth) time zone.
