  author={Paolo Massaa and A. Venturinib and Michela Ferrona},
Case-based recommender systems have been successfully applied to tourism web sites for suggesting to travellers products they might like such as hotels or events. Since they exploit previous experiences by other travellers (cases), their casebase needs to be bootstrapped at deploy time by inserting initial experiences. In this paper we address this open problem and propose a methodology for bootstrapping case-based recommender systems by exploiting the tracking features of Web Analytics tools.
