The eighth ACM conference on Recommender Systems just took place in Foster City, California, USA. This yearly event represents the most important appointment for the recommender systems’ community worldwide, bringing together researchers and experts from both academia and industry. This year the event took place in Silicon Valley, which attracted an unprecedented number of people to a completely sold out conference, with as many as 500 virtual attendees on YouTube, where the main conference presentations have been streamed live. It is notable that about half of participants were from industry this year, with a massive presence of the big enterprise players, such as Google, Linkedin, Netflix, Amazon, Microsoft, Samsung, Pandora, Facebook, Baidu, and many others.
