We invite proposals for full-day and half-day tutorials to be held at the Web Search and Data Mining (WSDM) conference on February 8, 2012.
Topics of the proposed tutorials should be aligned with those set forth in the call for papers for the main conference (http://wsdm2012.org/). This year, WSDM will be collocated with the ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW, http://cscw2012.org/). The WSDM 2012 Tutorial Program is intended to disseminate information to conference attendees on recently emerging topics and trends, provide surveys of complementary techniques to those commonly studied at WSDM, and inform industrial practitioners on the state-of-the-art within the field. Tutorials will be presented by subject matter experts. We encourage submissions of proposals on all topics in the general areas of web search, data mining, information retrieval, and social search. We note that previous related conferences in the Seattle area have drawn large audiences from both academia and industry. This audience should be considered when tailoring the proposal.
Proposals are limited to 1,000 words and should contain the following information:
