Welcome to the
the ACM Summerschool on Recommender Systems!

The ACM Summer School on Recommender Systems is co-funded by SIGCHI via its conference development fund for the ACM conference series on Recommender Systems and has been granted additional support by the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano.

It will be held as a pre-program to the RecSys'17 conference from Monday 21st of August to Friday 25th in Bolzano, Italy. The Doctoral Symposium (DS) of RecSys’17 is integrated into the program of the summer school and takes place in parallel on the last day of the summer school. Participation at the summer school requires registration via this website. Registration will remain open until the capacity limit is reached.

Reserving an accomodation lies in the responsibility of participants. We provide pointers to recommended dormitories and hotels that offer reduced rates for the RecSys2017 Summer School participants.

Leaders in the field as well as promising younger researchers volunteered to serve as speakers at this summer school. The lectures are covering a broad range of topics from an algorithmic as well as an methodological perspective and will also include hands-on sessions. In addition upcoming and trending topics such as recommending to groups or affect and personality-based recommendation approaches will be addressed.
