Case-based recommender systems can learn about user preferences over time and automatically suggest products that fit these preferences. In this chapter, we present such a system, called CASIS. In CASIS, we combined the use of swarm intelligence in the task allocation among cooperative agents applied to a case-based recommender system to help the user to plan a trip.
