Group recommendation is the task of recommending items to groups of users instead of single users. Examples are restaurant or movie recommendations for a party of several people (groups vary in composition), or TV program recommendation for a household (groups tend not to change much over time).

One can distinguish between explicit group recommendation, where recommendations are made for groups of known users, and implicit group recommendation, where the group composition is not observed.
