© 2017 IEEE. Diversity and novelty are appreciated features by users of recommender systems, which alleviate the information overload problem. These features are more important in recommendation to groups because members interests and needs differ from each other or are even in conflict. Various techniques have been used to recommend to groups. However, these techniques apply an aggregation step that imply a loss of information, which negatively affect the recommendation. We aim at avoiding the negative influence of the aggregation step considering the various interests and needs of the group members as the group hesitation, thus, our proposal uses Hesitant Fuzzy Sets to model the group information. A case study is performed to evaluate the proposal, whose results show its performance regarding recommendation diversity, novelty and accuracy.
