WSDM publishes original, high quality papers and presentations, with an emphasis on practical but principled novel models of search, retrieval and data mining, algorithm design and analysis, economic implications, and in-depth experimental analysis of accuracy and performance.
WSDM VC and Industry Day Mon, Feb 22
This year WSDM will host a VC and Industry day
focused on the interaction of the search and data mining communities with the VC and Industry communities. A series of invited talks by prominent speakers as Ron Conway (SVAngel, Founder and Co-managing Partner)
and Qi Lu (Microsoft, EVP)
will be mixed with panels on the topics ranging from the role of the data science in startups to the sharing economy. The lunch break will feature a company expo where 20+ companies
will present their work, giving the WSDM attendants a chance to see data science and search applications in practice.
In the 2016 WSDM Cup
, the challenge will be to assess the query-independent importance of scholarly articles, using data from the Microsoft Academic Graph
-- a large heterogeneous graph comprised of publications, authors, venues, organizations, and the fields of study.
