Second ACM International Conference on
Web Search and Data Mining
Barcelona, Spain - February 9-12, 2009
WSDM is co-located with WAW, and hosts two satellite worshops: WSCD09 and ESAIR09.
WSDM (pronounced "wisdom") is a young ACM conference intended to be the
publication venue for research in the areas of search and data mining.
Indeed, the pace of innovation in these areas prevents proper coverage by
conferences of broader scope. The high attendance at the first WSDM, held at
Stanford University in February of 2008, is a confirmation of this trend.
WSDM invites original, high quality submissions related to search and data
mining on the Web, with an emphasis on practical but principled novel models
of search and retrieval, algorithm design and analysis, economics
implications, and indepth experimental analysis of accuracy and
WSDM is being co-sponsored by ACM SIGIR, SIGKDD, SIGMOD, and SIGWEB. Any
other parties interested in helping us, please read the supporter opportunities page.
