[Note that WSDM 2012 and CSCW 2012 will be co-located in Seattle. If your interests fall at the intersection of computer supported cooperative work and Web search and data mining, you should be sure submit, attend, and participate. Look forward to seeing you in February!]

                           CALL FOR PAPERS

                 Fifth ACM International Conference on

Paper Format
Papers must report original research not accepted or under submission
to any journal or conference with public proceedings (previous
submissions in informal workshops 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 English.

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 wsdm2012 [at] for any questions
on the submission or review process.

Review Process
The review process will be single-blind (that is, the identity of
authors is known to the reviewers). 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.

Publication and Presentation
All accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library. 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;
others will be included in a short "madness" session.

Workshops & Tutorials
We invite proposals for full-day and half-day tutorials and workshops
to be held on February 8th and February 12th respectively. Topics
should be aligned with those identified above.  For the full CFPs see: and
