The sixth CLEF conference (Updated)
September 8th to 11th, 2015, Toulouse, France
In 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.

ACM Recommender Systems Challenge 2014 – User Engagement as Evaluation
October 6th to 10th, 2014, Foster City, Silicon Valley, USA
ACM RecSys Challenge
We are pleased to announce that CrowdRec is the official sponsor of the 2014 ACM Recommender Systems Challenge to be held in conjunction with ACM RecSys. The challenge focuses on user engagement in movie-related tweets based on an extended version of the MovieTweetings dataset.
The challenge is currently ongoing and will be finalized in time for the 2014 ACM RecSys Conference.

Crowdrec paper on “Comparative Evaluation of Recommendation Systems for Digital Media” at the International Broadcasting Convention
September 11th to 16th, 2014, Amsterdam, the Netherlands
The number of participants was more than 55,000 in this year at the International Broadcasting Convention (September 11-16, Amsterdam), the biggest event for the digital media and content industry. The CrowdRec project published a paper entitled “Comparative Evaluation of Recommendation Systems for Digital Media” that introduces the reference framework and its use case for the players of the digital media.
CrowdRec was represented by Domonkos Tikk (Gravity) and Moviri. The paper was assigned to the session “New consumer trends – the rise of social media and second screen technologies”, and there was interesting discussion among attendees and presenters on the CrowdRec concept of an impartial evaluation framework.
In conjunction with European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR)
April 13, 2014, Amsterdam, the Netherlands
CrowdRec partner Gravity participated at this workshop in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The workshop followed the footsteps of the previous CaRR workshops and centered around the broad concept of context in information retrieval and recommender systems.
Workshop on Crowdsourcing and Human Computation for Recommender Systems Co-located with ACM RecSys 2013
October 12th, 2013, Hong Kong, China
We are pleased to announce that the first workshop was on crowdsourcing and human computation for recommender systems. The recommender systems we refer to as a broad spectrum of applications involving recommendation, information valuation, filtering, summarization, etc. in various contexts from e-commerce to social networking and mobile applications.
This workshop aimed at to providing a scholarly venue for researchers and practitioners to exchange the advances of crowdsourcing and human computation technologies and applications, with an emphasis on the applications in recommendation systems. The potentials and advantages of crowdsourcing and human computation have been explored for a number of areas such as computer-human interaction and information retrieval, we believe that these advances can also benefit the research of recommender systems at large.
