Asking Clarifying Questions in Open-Domain Information-Seeking Conversations
This paper formulate the task of asking clarifying questions in open-domain information-seeking conversational systems, propose an offline evaluation methodology for the task, and collect a dataset, called Qulac, through crowdsourcing, which significantly outperforms competitive baselines.
ANTIQUE: A Non-factoid Question Answering Benchmark
This paper develops and releases a collection of 2,626 open-domain non-factoid questions from a diverse set of categories, and includes a brief analysis of the data as well as baseline results on both classical and neural IR models.
Personalized Context-Aware Point of Interest Recommendation
This article proposes a probabilistic model to find the mapping between user-annotated tags and locations’ taste keywords and investigates four approaches to use the proposed mapping for addressing the data sparsity problem.

An effective geographical model is proposed by considering the user's main region of activity and the relevance of each location within that region and is fused into the Logistic Matrix Factorization to improve the accuracy of POI recommendation.
A Cross-Platform Collection for Contextual Suggestion
Both collections that were used by the TREC 2016 Contextual Suggestion track are released to give other researchers the opportunity to compare their approaches with the top systems in the track, and it provides the opportunities to explore different methods to predicting contextually appropriate venues.
User Model Enrichment for Venue Recommendation
This paper introduces a user model based on venues’ categories and their descriptive keywords extracted from Foursquare tips, and proposes an enriched user model which leverages the users’ reviews from Yelp.
