Nominations for Peer Review Committee

Want to nominate someone to the RecLab Prize on Peer Review Committee? Please complete the form below with the individual’s name, contact information, and a brief statement as to why you think he/she is qualified to be part of the committee.

The Peer Review Committee is charged with reviewing the algorithms that are submitted and choosing those that will enter the semi-final round. The key qualifications for members of the committee are broad and deep experience with recommender systems and personalization algorithms, either in academia or industry or both. We are looking for big thinkers who are well versed in the state of the art and can assess algorithms based on their promise, novelty, and diversity. Members will evaluate submitted algorithms and with the assistance of RichRelevance engineers will verify the implementations of the chosen algorithms work as expected. Individual members of the committee may be affiliated with institutions that sponsor teams in the competition, but will be asked to recuse themselves from evaluating those teams’ entries.

Please direct any further questions about committee membership and responsibilities to reclabprize (at)
