Users’ Choices About Hotel Booking: Cues for Personalizing the Presentation of Recommendations

Barbu, C.-M., & Ziegler, J. (2017). In T. Domonkos & P. Pu (Eds.), Poster Proceeding of ACM Recsys 2017: Proceedings of the Poster Track of the 11th ACM Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys 2017) Como, Italy, August 28, 2017 (Vol. 1905, pp. 44–45).


Personalization in recommender systems has typically been applied to the underlying algorithms. In contrast, the presentation of individual recommendations—specifically, the various ways in which it can be adapted to suit the user’s needs in a more effective manner—has received relatively little attention by comparison. We present the results of an exploratory survey about users’ choices regarding hotel recommendations and draw preliminary conclusions about whether these choices can influence the presentation of recommendations.
