Abstract submission deadline: August 21, 2013

Submission deadline: August 28, 2013

WSDM (pronounced “wisdom”) is one of the premier conferences covering
research in the areas of search and data mining on the Web. The Seventh
ACM WSDM Conference will take place in New York City, USA during
February 25-28, 2014.

WSDM publishes original, high-quality papers 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 2014 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:

Web Search

Web dynamics and search
Multifaceted and task-driven search
Multimedia Web Search
Security and privacy in Web search and mining
User interfaces and interaction
User and search modeling
Personalized search and ranking
Distributed, meta, and peer-to-peer search
Vertical portals and search
Search quality benchmarking and evaluation
Search result ranking and assistance
Searching social and real-time content
Algorithms and systems for web-scale search
Sponsored Search and Computational Advertising
Web Mining

Web measurements, Web evolution, Web models
Clustering, classification, and summarization of Web data
Opinion mining and sentiment analysis
Multimodal data mining
Data, entity, event and relationship extraction
Sense and entity disambiguation
Data integration and data cleaning
Discovery-driven Web and social network mining
Traffic and log analysis
Algorithms and systems for Web-scale mining
Social Search and Mining

Social network analysis, theories, models, and applications
Social media analysis: blogs and friendship networks
Influence spreading and viral marketing in social networks
Social reputation, influence, and trust
User profiling and recommendation systems
User activity modeling and exploitation
Tags, users, and search
Collaborative search and question answering
Searching social media and collaboratively generated content
Papers emphasizing novel algorithmic approaches are particularly
encouraged, as are empirical/analytical studies of specific data mining
problems in other scientific disciplines, in business, engineering, or
other application domains. Application-oriented papers that make
innovative technical contributions to research are welcome. Visionary
papers on new and emerging topics are also welcome.

Authors are explicitly discouraged from submitting papers that do not
present clearly their contribution with respect to previous works, that
contain only incremental results, and that do not provide significant
advances over existing approaches.

Key Dates

Paper abstracts due: August 19, 2013
Papers due: August 26, 2013
Paper notifications: November 25, 2013
Conference: February 25-28, 2014
All deadlines are 11.59pm, anywhere in the world (Alofi time).

Paper Format

Papers must report original research not accepted or under submission to
any peer-reviewed journal or conference. Previous submissions in venues
with no formal proceedings 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


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
wsdm2014 [at] for any questions on the submission or
review process.

Review Process

The review process will be double-blind. Therefore, please anonymize
your submission. This means that all submissions must contain no
information identifying the author(s) or their organization(s): Do not
put the author(s) names or affiliation(s) at the start of the paper,
anonymize citations to and mentions of your own prior work that are
directly related to your present work, and do not include funding or
other acknowledgments.

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.


The algorithms, resources and methods used within a paper should be
described as rigorously as possible. If the authors feel that this
cannot be done sufficiently due to the paper length limit, they are
encouraged to provide supplementary material for the camera-ready
version, including detailed descriptions, tests datasets and/or code
elsewhere (e.g. code repositories, institutional websites, or the
authors’ website). Supplementary material will not be peer-reviewed, but
we will work with the publisher to archive it along with the
peer-reviewed article.

Wherever appropriate, the authors are encouraged to use publicly
available test collections and use state-of-the-art baselines.
Regardless of the types of resources used (public test collections,
proprietary data, etc.), please consider sharing your intermediate/final
experimental results and code with the research community, or providing
alternative means of accessing your data or code if sharing is not
possible. Facilitating access to these resources is an effective way to
enhance the reproducibility of your methods and results, and hence the
impact of your research.

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 in
either long or short talks.
