Abstract

Recommender systems research is concerned with many aspects of recommender system behavior and effects than simply its effectiveness, and simulation can be a powerful tool for uncovering these effects. In this brief position paper, I identify specific types of research that simulation is uniquely well-suited to address along with a hierarchy of simulation types.
