Digital Tools and Uses - Congress
The first international Digital Tools & Uses Congress is a multidisciplinary conference devoted to study the uses and development of digital tools. It aims at assembling five interrelated symposia: 1) Web Studies, 2) Challenges of IoT, 3) Recommender systems, 4) Archives and social networks, and 5) Digital Frontiers. The intention of this consortium is to approach a common object of study from different perspectives in order to enrich the discussion and collaboration between participants.

Short description

Recommender Systems (RS) reach their maturity with undeniable ubiquity both on social media, in collaborative platforms or online sales. After three interdisciplinary workshops devoted to the subject (in 2012, 2015 and 2017), we are pleased to invite you to contribute to an interdisciplinary workshop on recommender systems to be held in Paris in october 2018.

Call for papers

Recommender systems are a central topic of study in several fields: from computer science to marketing through to information science. Both in academia and industry, there are a great variety of technical aspects to explore in recommender systems studies, such as machine learning, text mining, artificial intelligence (AI), network analysis, bibliometrics, databases, cloud computing, scalability, data science, visualization and human computer interaction (HCI). The motivation to organize InWoRS is to contrast points of view around Recommender Systems to generate fruitful collaborations and exchanges, in order to enrich the comprehension of RS for practitioners of the above-mentioned fields.


We welcome interesting, high standard contributions from all the fields studying Recommender Systems but will consider preferentially articles dealing with the following topics :

• RS for e-Learning
• RS and marketing
• RS algorithms and optimization
• RS and law, ethics & standards, with the use of massive social data
• RS in human resources context
• RS and strategy
• RS for scholar literature (new topic)
