  • Abstract
    In recent years, with the proliferation of the social web, users are exposed to an intensively growing social overload.

In this tutorial, we will review the broad domain of social recommender systems, the underlying techniques and methodologies; the data in use, recommended entities, and target population; evaluation techniques; applications; and open issues and challenges.
