WSDM (pronounced “wisdom”) is one of the premier conferences on web-inspired research involving search and data mining. The 17th ACM International WSDM Conference will take place in Mérida, Mexico (in-person conference with virtual elements), from March 4th to March 8th, 2024.

The WSDM 2024 Day will be held at the WSDM conference on March 8th, 2024. This year, the aim is to discuss the “State of Data Mining & Web Search in LATAM”. 

The objectives of the WSDM Day are:

  • To promote WSDM-aligned topics of relevance to LATAM.
  • To increase the participation of relevant LATAM parties, e.g. Academia, Industry, Government, in the WSDM community and to open collaboration opportunities.

The organizing committee invites submissions for talk proposals on topics aligned with those set forth in the call for papers of the main conference, with a focus on issues that are relevant to LATAM as described below.  The talk proposals would be peer reviewed, and the accepted proposals would be presented during the WSDM Day.

List of Topics

In addition to topics of the main conference, relevant topics include, but are not limited, to:

  • Models and resources for the indigenous languages of America
  • Cultural biases in recommender/e-commerce systems
  • Data science and AI in social systems
  • Data mining education
  • Foundation models applications
  • Use of websearch in the conservation of species and natural spaces
  • Copyright regimes and web research
  • Crowdsourcing and Human Computation
