Towards a Design Space for Personalizing the Presentation of Recommendations

Barbu, C.-M., & Ziegler, J. (2017). In L. Boratto, S. Carta, & G. Fenu (Eds.), EnCHIReS 2017: Engineering Computer-Human Interaction in Recommender Systems : Proceedings of the Second Workshop on Engineering Computer-Human Interaction in Recommender Systems co-located with the 9th ACM SIGCHI Symposium on Engineering Interactive Computing Systems (EICS 2017) (Vol. 1945, pp. 10–17).


Although personalization plays a major role in the development of recommender systems, the presentation of recommendations and especially the way in which it can be adapted to suit the user’s needs has received relatively little attention from the research community. We introduce a design space for personalizing the presentation of recommendations and propose several dimensions that should be a part of it. Moreover, we present our initial insights about possible interactive mechanisms as well as potential evaluation criteria. Our goal is to provide a systematic way of designing personalized recommendation content, which should prove benecial for other researchers working on this topic. In the longer term, we are interested to investigate whether such personalized presentation implementations influence the perceived trustworthiness of the recommendations.
