There is a change in the program!
Following the success of CAMRa2010, we are pleased to announce this year’s Challenge on Context-Aware Movie Recommendation.
The majority of existing recommendation approaches does not take into account contextual information, such as time, location, or weather. This challenge aims to tackle the practical issue of context-aware movie recommendation. A new movie rating dataset from Moviepilot will be released for the challenge. The dataset contains a number of contextual features, typically not found in standard collaborative filtering datasets. The participating teams are requested to use the additional contextual features to generate context-aware recommendations.
The challenge focuses on classification accuracy metrics. The participants are invited to submit papers focusing on the challenge to the workshop, which will be held in conjunction with RecSys-2011.
