WSDM 2009 

Late Breaking-Results

The purpose of the new WSDM late breaking results sessions is to allow the presentation of more recent, more risky and ground-breaking, innovative research ideas, methods, results, and position statements. Late breaking results will be presented in short talk format in the main track of the conference and the accepted papers will be published on the conference website.

Call for Papers
Submission information
Contact: wsdm2009breaking at easychair dot org
The submission deadline has been extended to November 17, 2008, 11:59 pm UTC-10 (Hawaii).

Late breaking results submissions will be held to the same standards of scientific quality as full papers. Evaluation criteria will include novelty and significance of the contribution to the field, quality of research, quality of writing, and contribution to conference program diversity. The highest weight will be placed on novelty of the contribution, so authors should clearly state and support novelty claims by comparing and contrasting the work to previous research. Incremental research is discouraged for this call.

Short versions of rejected papers from the main WSDM CFP are allowed, but the WSDM reviews must be included along with a rebuttal.

The topics include all WSDM'09 topics. Topics that are especially encouraged include:

Vertical portals
User profiling and modeling
Culture-aware data mining, user modeling, and applications
Socio-economic perspectives on mining
Ranking and machine learning for ranking

New perspectives on social-network and social-media analysis
