We are pleased to chair a co-located workshop with the 2019 IEEE Smart World Congress and the 3rd IEEE Conference on Smart City Innovations (IEEE SCI 2019) will be held in Leicester, United Kingdom, between 19th 23rd August, 2019.

The workshop aims at attracting demonstrations of novel research to tackle challenges faced in smart cities, with a particular focus on Big Data-driven user personalisation and large-scale decision-making problems. Research topics include applications, techniques and methods with or without case studies, related to personalisation applications of hybrid and context-aware recommender systems, solving the cold-start problem in smart city contexts, preference elicitation and its integration with Big Data, multi-criteria and group decision support systems at scale.

Researchers and practitioners working in different fields are encouraged to submit their research contributions and ideas in addition to demonstrators and visual materials such as posters.
