Over the past decade, recommendation algorithms for ratings prediction and item ranking have steadily matured. However, these state-of-the-art algorithms are typically applied in relatively straightforward and static scenarios: given information about a user’s past item preferences in isolation, can we predict whether they will like a new item or rank all unseen items based on predicted interest?

In reality, recommendation is often a more complex problem: the evaluation of a list of recommended items never takes place in a vacuum, and it is often a single step in the user’s more complex background task or need. The goal of the¬†ComplexRec 2018¬†workshop is to offer an interactive venue for discussing approaches to recommendation in complex scenarios that have no simple one-size-fits-all solution. ComplexRec 2018 will held on October 7, 2018 and co-located with RecSys 2018 in Vancouver.
