RecSys 2014: CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
===================================================

8th ACM International Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys 2014)

October 6-10, 2014, Foster City, Silicon Valley, USA

Submission Deadline: April 7th 2014

===================================================
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
===================================================

RecSys 2014 is pleased to invite proposals for workshops to be held in
conjunction with the conference. The goal of the workshops is to
provide additional venues for presenting research on topics of
interest and an informal forum to discuss research questions and
challenges.

We encourage proposals for a wide range of workshops, including but
not limited to:

* Working group meetings organized around a specific problem; such
workshops may wish to ask participants to submit a short white paper
or position statement.
* One day mini-conferences on specialized topics; such workshops may
have their own paper submission and review processes.
* Mini-competitions or challenges around selected topics with
individual or team participation.

We welcome proposals for half-day and full-day workshops.

We encourage you to contact us in advance with workshop ideas; we will
work with prospective workshop organizers to help them design
successful proposals. We actively encourage both researchers and
industry practitioners to submit proposals.
