Marianne Corvellec will present Evaluating Collaborative Filtering Recommender Systems (https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/6aa1/c88b810825ee80b8ed4c27d6577429b5d3b2.pdf) by Jonathan L. Herlocker, Joseph A. Konstan, Loren G. Terveen, and John T. Riedl.

What's better than a survey paper? Perhaps this paper that proposes a methodology for evaluating many different approaches, and then gives some empirical evaluations while giving us, also, a bit of a tour of the literature on recommender systems.

Added to that, our speaker used this paper in an implementation, so it's two of my favorite kinds of paper situations in one!
