Background and Goals

Since the development of the first recommender system in the early 90's there has been a lot of interest both from academia and industry in the area of recommender systems research. With the deployment of recommender technology by e-commerce giants such as amazon.com, the basic technology has very quickly gone from the research world to popular applications. With today’s increasing information overload problem the area of recommender systems research remains to be more challenging than ever before.
The main goal of this workshop is to provide a forum where current researchers and practitioners can meet and discuss the issues related to recommender systems research. The themes will be in algorithms, applications and interfaces.
This workshop solicits high-quality papers for presentation describing original research results in recommender systems, some of which will be considered for special issue journal publication.
WPRSIUI'08, is the fourth in the series and follows the successful workshops WPRSIUI'05, WPRSIUI'06, and IEEE WPRSIUI’07 held in conjunctions with ICETE 2005 , AH 2006, IEEE ICDE 2007.
This workshop will offer an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas about past, present and future trends in Web personalization, Recommender systems and Intelligent User Interfaces.
