The 'Workshop on human decision-making in recommender systems' will take place from 9 to 13 September 2012 in Dublin, Ireland.

Recommender systems often ask users to make a decision. These can range from selecting a song/movie from list, to indicating feedback features or making a proposal. The complexity of decision tasks, limited cognitive resources of users and the overall decision effort means that designers often keep programming simple.

Decision making bounded rationality is a door opener for different types of non-conscious influences on the decision behaviour of a user. Decision and cognitive psychology are both used to explain these influences. For example, decoy effects and defaults can trigger significant shifts in item selection probabilities; in group decision scenarios, the visibility of the preferences of other group members can have a significant impact on the final group decision.

The event will be a chance for industry and academia to present and discuss new ideas and research results that are related to the topic of human decision-making in recommender systems.For further information, please visit: http://recex.ist.tugraz.at/RecSysWorkshop2012
