We invite proposals for half and full-day tutorials to be held at the Web Search and Data Mining (WSDM) conference on February 22, 2016. The WSDM 2016 Tutorial Program is intended to disseminate information to conference attendees on recently emerging topics and trends, provide surveys of complementary techniques to those commonly studied at WSDM, and inform industrial practitioners on the state-of-the-art within the field. We encourage submissions of proposals on topics in the general areas of web search, data mining, information retrieval, and social search. WSDM historically has drawn audiences from both academia and industry. This should be taken into consideration in the proposal. Tutorials will be given by experts in the subject matter.
Submissions should include a cover sheet and an extended abstract. The cover sheet should include the following elements
The extended abstract (no longer than 2 pages) should include the following sections
Tutorial proposals should be prepared in standard ACM format available from the ACM Conference site (for LaTeX, use the Option 2 style) and be submitted via email to: WSDM2016Tutorials@gmail.com
