It has been a hectic yet very enjoyable week for DSRS who attended the 12th International ACM Conference on Recommender Systems (ACM Recsys 2018) in Vancouver, Canada.
Conference website: https://recsys.acm.org/recsys18/
For the conference program please check out the link here.
Conference venue and Vancouver were astonishing with the service and nature visible from any location of the lovely city.Besides attending exciting tutorials and sessions in the main conference, we presented our preliminary work in collaboration with our – almost graduating! – MSc student Eunchong Kim! Our paper, ‘Fitness that Fits: a prototype model for workout video recommendation’ has been disseminated in the co-located workshop on Health Recommender Systems. Thanks to all the workshop organisers, in particular to Christoph Trattner, Helma Torkamaan and Hanna Schaefer, whom we had the honour to meet in the workshop, as well as ACM-Recsys programme chair Xavier Amatriain (thanks for your valuable feedback on our work!). We were also pleased to meet and network with many other leading experts in health technologies and the recsys community in general!
Here are some photos from the conference and exciting natural parks located not far away from the city centre.
Greetings from Vancouver Intl Airport. Next stop: Miyazaki (Japan) for IEEE SMC 2018 along with our newest arrival James Neve!
