The book is the first of its kind, representing research efforts in the diversity of personalization and recommendation techniques. These include user modeling, content, collaborative, hybrid and knowledge-based recommender systems. It presents theoretic research in the context of various applications from mobile information access, marketing and sales and web services, to library and personalized TV recommendation systems.
This volume will serve as a basis to researchers who wish to learn more in the field of recommender systems, and also to those intending to deploy advanced personalization techniques in their systems.
