About the workshop

Daily news consumption has crucial importance where it affects personal beliefs, decision making, political voting and world views in general. The news ecosystem has experienced drastic changes over the last decade. News consumption has shifted online and increasingly towards social media. On digital platforms such as news portals and social media, where personalization has more importance, the news is filtered and ranked even without users’ awareness. Therefore, we encounter challenges such as lack of transparency, diversity, and other ethical considerations while trying to generate the most suitable personalized recommendations for the users. In addition, the emergence of powerful Large Language Models presents a challenge for news organisation and consumers alike.

The 12th International Workshop on News Recommendation and Analytics (INRA 2024 in conjunction with ACM RecSys 2024) invites scholars from diverse disciplines to discuss topics related to news recommendation, including but not limited to technical, societal, and ethical aspects.

Call for papers

This workshop invites contributions in the realm of news recommendation and analytics. In addition to technical papers, we welcome interdisciplinary submissions.
In this year’s edition, we mainly focus on three themes: news personalization, news analytics, and the effect of Large Language Models (LLMs) on the news eco-system. Topics of interest for this workshop can be found here.
