The 1st International Workshop on Contextual Recommendation Systems (CtxRecSys 2015)

affiliated with 4th International Conference on Context-Aware Systems and Applications

November 26–27, 2015 

Vung Tau, Vietnam


Recommendation system is an interesting topic for a large number of researchers over recent years. There are several approaches, models and techniques that can deal with some issues in recommendation systems. Most of existing approaches have focused on recommending the most relevant items to users without considering any additional contextual information, such as time, location, and expertise. In many applications, it contains several useful data to extract more information about the users. For example, using spatial context, a restaurant recommendation system can provide different lists of places for the same user, depending on his/her current locations. As another example, in music recommendation system, user may listen to romantic songs at the weekend but he/she may like jazz before sleeping.  Many issues such as contextual information integration, context-aware recommendation techniques combination and evaluation approaches still remain open.

Therefore, this workshop tries to be meeting point where researchers and practitioners in areas of Knowledge Management and Social Sciences, Collective Intelligence could have the opportunity to present current research results, to share their research achievements and solutions, and to look for new idea of context-aware recommendation systems.



The papers will be reviewed by CtxRecSys’15 International Program Committee. The accepted submissions for this workshop will be published in the ICCASA 2015 conference proceedings. The papers should present original and unpublished research.

Papers should be submitted through Confy system, and have to comply with the SPRINGER format. Please follow the instructions given at the ICCASA 2015 site to format and submit your paper. Authors have to find more information from the following webpage.


Official conference proceedings of ICCASA 2015 will appear in the Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST)series jointly published by ICST and Springer and indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, ISI Proceedings, EI, CrossRef and Zentralblatt Math.
