Call for Industry Day Speakers

The Industry Day event will take place on the first day of the WSDM conference, Monday March 8 2021, in Jerusalem, Israel.

We call for technical talks which will cover how web search and data mining are used in an industrial setting. For example, how machine learning is put to use in practical scenarios, how user behaviour can be observed, and used, to improve systems in practice, how industrial pipelines can be optimized, and how scale is a challenge in more ways than the obvious.
Talk may address challenges, solutions, and case studies of interesting and innovative systems, and ideas in areas pertaining to web earch and data mining.

Industry authors are invited to submit talk proposals. Industry-academia talk proposals are eligible.

Each presentation will be 20-30 minutes long including Q&A. Submissions should include:

  • Title and abstract
  • Speaker's bio
  • (optional, but strongly recommended) Links to video of previous technical talks given by the speaker. In case no such recordings exist, we encourage the speaker to make a recording of a part of the proposed talk for the purpose of this submission.
  • WSDM is a technical conference, so preference will be given to talks describing applied research and technical challenges rather than product presentations.

The proposals should be sent to:
