CALL FOR PAPERS

WSDM 2016 Workshop: Search and Exploration of X-Rated Information (SEXI 
2016)

Submissions due: November 30, 2015 -- contact us if you need a few days 
more!


WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

Adult content is pervasive on the web, has been a driving factor in the 
adoption of the Internet medium, and is responsible for a significant 
fraction of traffic and revenues, yet rarely attracts the attention of 
researchers.  This half-day workshop on Search and Exploration of 
X-Rated Information at the 2016 WSDM conference will discuss questions 
for information access tasks and search behavior related to adult content.

While the scope of the workshop remains broad, we will devote special 
attention to the privacy and security issues with respect to adult 
content.  The recent release of the personal data belonging to customers 
of the adult dating site Ashley Madison provides a timely context for 
the focus on privacy and security (*).  The data collected by adult 
sites, derived from both visitors to the site and providers of content, 
is arguably more sensitive than other commercial data, because of the 
controversial nature of the sites themselves.

SUBMISSION FORMAT

We solicit short (2-page) position papers, and longer (4-page) research 
papers. Position papers identify an issue or problem related to adult 
information access, and outline a possible resolution or approach to 
address an issue.   Research papers present academic research in areas 
within the scope of the workshop. Papers should not include examples of 
adult content, and papers containing adult content will be rejected 
without review.  If in doubt, assume it is adult content.

Paper should be submitted using the ACM Proceedings templates 
<http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates> to 
EasyChair <https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sexi2016>.
