Research with LensKit

LensKit is intended to be particularly useful in recommender systems research.

If you use LensKit in published research, cite:

Michael D. Ekstrand. 2020. LensKit for Python: Next-Generation Software for Recommender Systems Experiments. In Proceedings of the 29th ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM '20). doi [10.1145/3340531.3412778](https://dx.doi.org/10.1145/3340531.3412778). arXiv:[1809.03125](https://arxiv.org/abs/1809.03125) [cs.IR].

Original LensKit (Java)

If you publish research that uses the old Java version of LensKit, cite:

In Proceedings of the Fifth ACM Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys ’11). ACM, New York, NY, USA, 133-140. DOI=10.1145/2043932.2043958.

For your convenience, here is the BibTeX:

    booktitle = "Proceedings of the Fifth {ACM} Conference on Recommender Systems",
    author = "Ekstrand, Michael D and Ludwig, Michael and Konstan, Joseph A and Riedl, John T",
    publisher = "ACM",
    pages = "133--140",
    series = "RecSys '11",
    year =  2011,

    conference = "RecSys '11",
    doi = "10.1145/2043932.2043958"
}

We would also appreciate it if you could send a PDF and citation for your article to ekstrand@acm.org, so we can know where all LensKit is being used.

LensKit has been used in a number of published papers. In this list, we have attempted to collect published research that has used the LensKit software in some capacity.
