Abstract: 
More and more precise and powerful recommendation algorithms and techniques have been proposed over the last years able to effectively assess users’ tastes and predict information that would probably be of interest for them. Most of these approaches rely on the collaborative paradigm (often exploiting machine learning techniques) and do not take into account the huge amount of knowledge, both structured and non-structured ones, describing the domain of interest for the recommendation engine. The aim of knowledgeaware and conversational recommender systems is to go beyond the traditional accuracy goal and to start a new generation of algorithms and interactive approaches which exploit the knowledge encoded in ontological and logic-based knowledge bases, knowledge graphs as well as the semantics emerging from the analysis and exploitation of semi-structured textual sources.
