CALL FOR DEMOS: Recommender Systems
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 in both Windows (Windows Movie Maker) and MacOS (iMovie) platforms. Tutorials can be found here: Windows Movie Maker (link: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/help/windows-xp) iMovie (link http://www.apple.com/support/ilife/tutorials/imovie/) Please see the submissions tab for Microsoft Word and LaTex templates.
