User Interfaces

  • Visual interfaces for recommender systems
  • Explanation interfaces for recommender systems
  • Collaborative multi-user interfaces (e.g., for group decision making)
  • Spoken and natural language interfaces
  • Trust-aware interfaces
  • Social interfaces
  • Context-aware interfaces
  • Ubiquitous and mobile interfaces
  • Conversational interfaces
  • Example- and demonstration-based interfaces
  • New approaches to designing interfaces for recommender systems
  • User interfaces for decision making (e.g., decision strategies and user ratings)

Interaction, user modeling, and decision-making

  • Cognitive Modeling for recommender systems
  • Human-recommender interaction
  • Controllability, transparency, and scrutability
  • Decision theories and biases (e.g., priming, framing, and decoy effects)
  • Detection and avoidance of decision biases (e.g., in item presentations)
  • Preference detection (e.g., eye tracking for automated preference detection)
  • The role of emotions in recommender systems (e.g., emotion‐aware recommendation)
  • Trust inspiring recommendation (e.g., explanation‐aware recommendation)
  • Argumentation and persuasive recommendation (e.g., argumentation‐aware recommendation)
  • Cultural differences (e.g., culture‐aware recommendation)
  • Mechanisms for effective group decision making (e.g., group recommendation heuristics)
  • Decision theories for effective group decision making (e.g., hidden profile management)
  • Voting Advice Applications


  • Case studies
  • Benchmarking platforms
  • Empirical studies and evaluations of new interfaces
  • Empirical studies and evaluations of new interaction designs
  • Evaluation methods and metrics (e.g., evaluation questionnaire design)
