Special session on Social Recommender Systems will be part of the 20th International Symposium on Methodologies for Intelligent Systems (ISMIS) which will take place on 4-7 December 2012 in Macau (see conference web page).
Recommender systems have been recognized as a promising way to solve the information overload problem, whose main task is to find out what their users might like. Recent evidence demonstrates the significance of social influence and indicate that recommendations made by advanced techniques and algorithms are often less appreciated than those coming from our friends or acquaintances. The emergence of large-scale social network services, such as Facebook and Twitter, is facilitating the development of social recommendation. Beyond theoretical interests, academic studies on social recommender systems can immediately find industrial applications.
We seek high-qualified, original submissions of reports on research covering all the aspects of designs, techniques, algorithms, experiments, and empirical analyses on social recommender systems.
The topics include but are not limited to the following:
Offline Social Recommender Systems
Empirical Analyses of Social Influence
Designs and Techniques of Social Recommender Systems
Social Recommendation Algorithms
Modeling Social Recommendation and User Behavior
Real Applications of Social Recommender Systems
Psychology of Social Recommendation
Privacy Issues of Social Recommendation
