At the end of September 2021, we hosted the 15th ACM Conference on Recommender Systems – the premier international forum for the presentation of new research results, systems and techniques in the broad field of recommender systems.

A truely successful hybrid event

RecSys brings together the major international research groups working on recommender systems, along with many of the world’s leading companies active in e-commerce and other adjacent domains. It has become the most important annual conference for the presentation and discussion of recommender systems research. In recognition of the role of the conference in bringing the recommender systems community together, the theme of RecSys 2021 was “A place to meet and exchange”.

Due to all the restrictiosns, we combined a live audience in Amsterdam with a worldwide based online audience, speakers who were physically present in Amsterdam as well as speakers who joined us live from all over the world – making it a very succesful hybrid event.

A truely amazing phenomenon, when a speaker in China, answers questions from a delegate in the US, joined by a live audience in Amsterdam. We like it and we hope to be able to do it again very soon!
