Benedikt Loepp

Benedikt Loepp I am a reseacher with a PhD in computer science (Dr.-Ing.). Currently, I'm working in the Interactive Systems research group at University of Duisburg-Essen. My research interests are at the intersection of human-computer interaction and machine learning, focusing on recommender systems, especially interactive approaches and preference elicitation methods, but also on novel methods to provide decision support in AI-based systems.

From 2012 to 2020, I was coordinator for computer science in the MINTroduce project, in which I supported study beginners at the university and was responsible for the preliminary courses of the department. Moreover, I was involved in the colognE-mobil project part II and contributed to several research developments, e.g., Blended RecommendingTagMF, and the Archaeological Sandbox. In addition to research, I enjoy my teaching activities, including a lecture on Recommender Systems.

For many years, I was webmaster of the official ACM RecSys website, serving until 2020 as web chair for the conference. For RecSys, I was also active as student volunteer chair and proceedings chair, and managed publicity for ACM UMAP in 2021. Moreover, I regularly serve as a committee member and reviewer for a variety of journals and conferences, including CHI, Frontiers AI, IJHCS, INTERACT, IUI, RecSys, and UMAP. Moroever, I'm co-founder of the GI group on User-centered AI and member of the Global Young Faculty VII.
