Special Track on Search, Comparison and Recommender Systems

16th International Conference on Electronic Commerce and Web 
Technologies - EC-Web 2015
Valencia, Spain
September 1 - 2, 2015

EC-Web is an international scientific conference series devoted to 
technology related aspects of e-Commerce and e-Business. The 16th 
edition of the conference, EC-Web 2015, will take place in Valencia, 
Spain in September 2015 and will serve as a forum to bring together 
researchers and practitioners to present and discuss recent advances in 
their fields.

SPECIAL TRACK on Search, Comparison and Recommender Systems

In the Web era, resource retrieval techniques play a fundamental role in 
helping the users to deal with the issues related to information 
overload. Today's search engines as well as matchmaking systems are no 
more working solely on pure text/keyword analysis. Their results are 
computed and enriched by putting together, e.g., link-based data, user 
preferences as well as information encoded into the so called knowledge 
graphs. The same happens for personalized information filtering systems, 
such as recommender systems, where pure collaborative and content-based 
approaches are hybridized with each other, combined and fed by many 
different and diverse data sources in order to improve not only the 
accuracy of results but also their novelty, diversity, and serendipity.

This track will mainly focus on:
- Search
- Knowledge graphs
- Matchmaking
- Recommender systems
- User modeling
- Preference representation and reasoning
- Similarity metrics

Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished research papers 
at http://confdriver.ifs.tuwien.ac.at/dexa2015
