Special Issue "Collaborative Filtering and Recommender Systems"
A special issue of Algorithms (ISSN 1999-4893).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2018
Every day, we interact with predictive systems that seek to model our behavior, monitor our activities, and make recommendations: Whom will we befriend? What articles will we like? Who influences us in our social network? And do our activities change over time? Models that answer such questions drive important real-world systems, and at the same time are of basic scientific interest to economists, linguists, and social scientists, among others. Recommender Systems and Collaborative Filtering algorithms seek to model such problems, while incorporating ideas from related areas including social network analysis, time-series modeling, and natural language processing.
The open access journal Algorithms will host a Special Issue on “Collaborative Filtering Algorithms”. The goal of the Special Issue is to collect new ideas and techniques related to the design and analysis of recommender systems and collaborative filtering algorithms, covering topics including approximation algorithms, scalability, usability and interpretability, and deployment.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Algorithms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 850 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
