CLEF NewsREEL 2015

The sixth CLEF conference (Updated)

September 8th to 11th, 2015, Toulouse, France 

CLEF-2015-LogoIn 2015, the CLEF NewsREEL initiative (a cooperation between CrowdRec and  the plista GmbH) continues offering researchers a unique opportunity to assess their recommendation algorithms in a real-life scenario. Participants have access to a large-scale data set comprising two months of recorded interactions on three news portals.

Additionally, an online API, called Open Recommendation Platform (ORP), is offered enabling the live benchmarking of recommender algorithms. The Open Recommendation Platform (ORP) directs recommendation requests to randomly selected recommendation servers. Participants gain insights into the performances of their algorithms observing how users respond to their recommendations.

If you want to participate, please go to the CLEF Registration page. You can register for both Task 1 and Task 2. Task 1 refers to the online evaluation based on the idea of an living lab using the Open Recommendation Platform. Task 2 refers to the data driven evaluation.

We are looking forward to your participation!
