Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Recommender systems research is largely focused on the value such systems can create for users, e.g., by helping them finding items of interest in situations of information overload. However, there are various other ways in which recommender systems can create value and have an impact on individuals and organizations. The goal of the workshop is to serve as a platform where researchers discuss recent insights on how recommender systems affect individuals, user communities, or organizations. The workshop also aims at raising awareness regarding the importance of impact-oriented research.
