Recommender systems (RSs) are becoming widespread in different application domains to provide personalized items to given service users. Because of such an increasing adoption of RSs, it is becoming urgent to define a precisely curated and organized core set of concepts and practices, i.e., a Body of Knowledge (BOK), as already done in other disciplines, including software engineering and model-driven engineering. The opportunities related to the availability of an RSBOK are manifold, and different stakeholders would benefit from it including, developers, teachers, and newcomers to the RS community.

Abstract

Recommender systems (RSs) are becoming widespread in different application domains to provide personalized items to given service users. Because of such an increasing adoption of RSs, it is becoming urgent to define a precisely curated and organized core set of concepts and practices, i.e., a Body of Knowledge (BOK), as already done in other disciplines, including software engineering and model-driven engineering. The opportunities related to the availability of an RSBOK are manifold, and different stakeholders would benefit from it including, developers, teachers, and newcomers to the RS community. Further than motivating a BOK for recommender systems and discussing corresponding envisioned opportunities and challenges, we also propose a methodology that can be employed to support the definition of an RSBOK.
