Participants of this tutorial learnt how to participate in CLEF NEWSREEL, a living lab for the evaluation of news recommender algorithms. Various research challenges can be addressed within NEWSREEL, such as the development and evaluation of collaborative filtering or content-based filtering strategies. Satisfying information needs by techniques including preference elicitation, pattern recognition, and prediction, recommender systems connect the research areas information retrieval and machine learning.
