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 performance.

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.
