WSDM (pronounced “wisdom”) is one of the premier conferences on web-inspired research involving search and data mining. The 11th ACM International WSDM Conference will take place in Los Angeles, California, USA during February 5-9, 2018.
The WSDM 2018 organizing committee invites proposals for full-day and half-day workshops to be held at the WSDM conference on Friday, February 9, 2018. The topics of the proposed workshops should be aligned with those set forth in the call for papers of the main conference. WSDM workshops provide a venue for exploring and discussing emerging research directions and applications of Web search and data mining, in a more focus and less formal manner than other tracks.
The format and content of each workshop will be determined by its organizers. However, preference will be given to workshops whose format includes sessions that facilitate highly interactive discussions with the audience. Examples include Q&As, debates, panels, or even a competition or a challenge around an interesting and realistically sized dataset (possibly released by the workshop organizers for that purpose). Examples of such challenges include the Netflix competition for recommender systems and Yahoo learning-to-rank challenge.
Organizers of accepted workshops are expected to:
