4th ACM Web Search and Data Mining Conference (WSDM), February 9-12, 2011,
Hong Kong

Call for Workshop Proposals
http://wiki.cse.cuhk.edu.hk/wsdm2011/workshop/cfwp


We invite proposals for full-day and half-day workshops to be held at the
WSDM conference on February 9, 2011. Topics of the proposed workshops
should be aligned with those set forth in the call for papers for the main
conference (http://www.wsdm2011.org/wsdm2011/cfp)

WSDM workshops provide a venue for more focused and less formal discussion
of new and emerging research directions and applications of Web search and
data mining. We strongly encourage the workshop organizers to make their
workshops highly interactive, and include discussion, Q&A and panel
sessions to facilitate a lively exchange of ideas among the attendees.

A workshop may be organized as a competition/challenge around an
interesting and realistically-sized dataset (possibly released by the
workshop organizers for that purpose); examples include Netflix competition
for recommender systems and Yahoo! learning to rank challenge. Workshops of
this kind might require extra time to plan, hence we may be willing to
provide early notice of acceptance.

The format and content of each workshop will be determined by its
organizers. All of the workshop organizers are expected to attend the
workshop (organizers who are unable to do so should be added to the PC
instead).

Organizers of accepted workshops are expected to prepare a workshop Web
site, and will be responsible for publicizing the workshop in the relevant
communities. The organizers will also be responsible for the reviewing
process and the final workshop program, as well as for the preparation of
the (informal) workshop proceedings, to be distributed to workshop
participants at the conference. The workshop paper submission deadline will
be determined by the organizers. As a general guideline, this date should
be after the notification date for regular WSDM papers.


Submission Guidelines

It is highly recommended to use the WSDM 2011 Workshop Proposal Template
for your submission (the template is available online at
http://wiki.cse.cuhk.edu.hk/wsdm2011/workshop/cfwp). Workshop proposals
should be submitted in PDF using the EasyChair system
(http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wsdm11ws).
