The goal of this workshop is to study the challenges in learning, evaluating, and mining of data from e-commerce and more classical commerce domains.

We will consider, among others, problems such as identifying dysfunctional items or collections in a website, off-policy evaluation of marketing strategies, personalization of e-commerce experience, validation, sequential decisions, dynamic pricing, and others. Also, we will focus on the problems themselves more than on solutions.
