      4th ACM WSDM Conference, February 9-12, 2011, Hong Kong

                  Call for Workshop Proposals

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 

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.

It is highly recommended to use the WSDM 2011 Workshop Proposal Template
