Personality and emotions shape our daily lives by having a strong influence on our preferences, decisions, and behaviour in general. In recent years, emotions and personality have shown to play an important role in various aspects of personalized systems, such as implicit feedback, contextual information, affective content labelling, cold-start problem, diversity, cross-domain recommendations, group recommendations, e-learning, conversational systems, music information retrieval, etc. With the development of robust techniques for the unobtrusive acquisition of emotions (e.g., from various modalities, such as video or physiological sensors) and personality (e.g., from social media) the time is right to take advantage of these possibilities to collect massive datasets and improve recommender systems.
We invite you to submit the outcomes of your work on the above topics to this Special Issue. The goal of the Special Issue is to make available the knowledge that builds on recent advances, such as the ones presented at the EMPIRE workshop series (https://empire2016recsys.wordpress.com/).
