Instead, it is imperative that they also explicitly consider children’s needs from multiple perspectives: educational, developmental, and engagement, to name a few. Considering these particular needs opens a rich set of questions to answer:
The goal of this interactive workshop is to share and discuss research and projects that reach beyond classic recommender techniques and discuss child related challenges of recommender systems. We invite submissions related to recommender systems for children including topics on:
|Paper submission deadline (extended)||July 5, 2017|
|Notification to authors||July 13, 2017|
|Camera-Ready Version||July 27, 2017|
|KidRec Workshop, RecSys Conference||August 27, 2017|
We invite short papers (4 pages) discussing novel work in progress and position papers (2 pages) focusing on open challenges in promising research directions as well as speculative or innovative work in progress, both in the ACM conference paper style.
All submitted papers must:
Authors will retain the copyright of their submission, however, proceedings will be publicly posted http://ceur-ws.org or via Scholarworks. We are also working on coordinating a special issue in a journal where accepted authors will be invited to submit an extension of their work for publication.
