Abstract. Recommender systems have gained lots of attention due to the rapid increase in the amount of data on the internet. Therefore, the demand for finding more advanced techniques to generate more useful recommendations becomes an urgent. The increasing need for generating more relevant recommendations led to the emergence of many novel recommendation systems, such as Context-aware Recommender System (CARS), which is based on incorporating the contextual information in recommendation systems. The goal of this paper is to propose new recommender systems that utilize the contextual information to find more relevant recommendations.
