CALL FOR DEMOS: Recommender Systems


Contact: industry2011@recsys.acm.org

ACM RecSys 2011

Demo submissions should report on implementations of new recommender system technologies and 
concepts. Demos allow conference participants to view novel and noteworthy recommender systems 
in action, discuss the systems with those who created them, and try them out. Appropriate demos
include applications, technologies, and research prototypes. Demos should be interactive and 
provide attendees a hands-on experience. Presenters must have been directly involved with the 
development of the system and be able to explain the unique and novel contributions of the system.
Accepted demos will be showcased during a separate demo session. Demo submission consists of two 
required components and another optional one:

1)	A one- or two page, camera-ready extended abstract to be included
in the conference
		proceedings. It should describe the demonstrated recommender system (including
		at least one screenshot) and the novel approaches or ideas it embodies.

2)	A one-page summary of the demo system and the required setup. It
should provide
		information about the presenter(s), including their relationship to the project.
		It should also provide a detailed description of needed space, power
		requirements, Internet connectivity, and any other related requirements. Please
		note that demo presenters will be responsible for providing their own equipment
		for their demos.

3)	The abstract may include a URL to a video (e.g., in YouTube) in a digital
		format. We request that you make your digital submissions in Apple Quicktime,
		Windows Media Format, MPEG, or DV-AVI. Videos may be no longer than five minutes
		and no larger than 30 MB. Videos can be in languages other than English,
		provided that they include English subtitles.

Deadline: Friday, June 10, 2011

Several packages are available to help you author your videos. Free authoring packages are included
