Beyond Personalization 2005
A Workshop on the Next Stage of Recommender Systems Research
January 9, 2005
In conjunction with the 2005 International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI 2005)
San Diego, California
Topics and Goals
A summary of the results of this workshop is available for download.
This workshop intends to bring recommender systems researchers and practitioners together in order to discuss the current state of recommender systems research, both on existing and emerging research topics, and to determine how research in this area should proceed. We are at a pivotal point in recommender systems research where researchers are both looking inward at what recommender systems are and looking outward at where recommender systems can be applied, and the implications of applying them out 'in the wild.' This creates a unique opportunity to both reassess the current state of research and directions research is taking in the near and long term.
This workshop will focus on the following four main topics:
The workshop is intended for both established researchers and practioners in the domain of recommender systems as well as for new researchers and students with interesting ideas on recommender systems and their future. Participants do not have to come from a specific application domain, as long as their research or ideas are on one of the main topics of the workshop.
