DLRS 2016

We are pleased to announce the 1st workshop on Deep Learning for Recommender Systems  (DLRS) held in conjunction with the 10th ACM Conference on Recommender Systems.

The workshop will center around the use of Deep Learning technology in Recommender Systems and algorithms.

Goals & Motivation

We believe that Deep Learning is one of the next big things in Recommendation Systems technology. The past few years have seen the tremendous success of deep neural networks in a number of complex tasks such as computer vision, natural language processing and speech recognition. Despite this, only little work has been published on Deep Learning methods for  Recommender Systems. Notable recent application areas are music recommendation, news recommendation, and session-based recommendation. The aim of the workshop is to encourage the application of Deep Learning techniques in Recommender Systems,  to promote research in deep learning methods for Recommender Systems, and to bring together researchers from the Recommender Systems and Deep Learning communities.
