WSDM (pronounced "wisdom") is one of the premier conferences covering research in the areas of search and data mining on the Web. The Sixth ACM WSDM Conference will take place in Rome, Italy during February 6-8, 2013. February 4 will be dedicated to the doctoral consortium; whereas February 5 will be dedicated to tutorials, workshops and data challenge.
WSDM publishes original, high quality papers and presentations related to search and data mining on the Web and the Social Web, 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 2013 is a highly selective, single track meeting that includes invited talks as well as refereed full papers. Topics covered include but are not limited to:
Conference General Chairs:
Program Committee Chairs:
Publicity Chair and Web Presence:
Treasurer and Registration Chair:
Senior Program Committee:
All deadlines are 11.59pm, anywhere in the world (Alofi time).
Papers must report original research not accepted or under submission to any journal or conference with public proceedings (previous submissions in informal workshops or as posters are allowed, but must be indicated). Papers must be formatted according to ACM guidelines and style files to fit within 10 pages, including references, diagrams, and appendices if any. A submitted paper must be self-contained and in English.
Papers must be submitted in PDF format to the paper submission web site. PDF files must have all non-standard fonts embedded. After upload, please check the copy stored on the site. Submissions that do not view or print properly may be rejected without a chance to rectify the problem. Please contact wsdm2013 [at] easychair.org for any questions on the submission or review process.
The review process will be single-blind (that is, the identity of authors is known to the reviewers). Each paper will be reviewed by at least three regular PC members and one or two senior PC members. The acceptance decisions will take into account paper novelty, technical depth, elegance, practical or theoretic impact, and presentation.
Publication and Presentation
All accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library. At least one author should register for each paper before the camera-ready submission. At the conference, all the papers will be allocated a slot at the interactive poster session to encourage discussion. Additionally, selected papers will be presented during the plenary oral sessions; others will be included in a short "madness" session.
