The Workshop on Recommenders in Tourism (RecTour) 2019, which is held in conjunction with the 13th ACM Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys), addresses specific challenges for recommender systems in the tourism domain. In this overview paper, we summarize our motivations to organize the RecTour workshop and present the main topics of the submissions that we received. The topics of this year’s workshop include context-aware recommendations, group recommender systems, hotel recommendations, destination characterization, next-POI recommendation, user interaction and experience, preference elicitation, user modeling and application of machine learning algorithms in the context of tourism recommender systems.
