The ACM International WSDM Conference (pronounced "wisdom") is one of the top two impact conferences in Data Mining & Analysis by Google Scholar citation metrics. The conference is one of the main gatherings of data scientists from both industry and academia. The Ninth WSDM will take place in San Francisco, California, 22-25 February 2016.

This year WSDM will host a VC and Industry day (http://www.wsdm-conference.org/2016/industry-day.html) on the first day focused on the interaction of the search and data mining communities with the VC and Industry communities. VC & Industry day’s agenda includes invited talks by prominent speakers as Ron Conway (SVAngel, Founder and Co-managing Partner; http://svangel.com/team/) and Qi Lu (Microsoft, EVP; http://news.microsoft.com/exec/qi-lu/) as well as panels on topics ranging from the role of the data science in startups to the sharing economy. The lunch break will feature a company expo where 30+ companies will present their data science work, giving WSDM attendants a chance to see data science and search applications in practice.

Registration for both the WSDM main conference as well as VC and Industry day is now open (http://www.wsdm-conference.org/2016/attending.html). Through December 17th an early registration discount applies for both the whole conference and separate VC and Industry day registration. Looking forward to see you at WSDM 2016!

Cheers,
Polo Chau, Assistant Professor of Computing, Georgia Tech
WSDM 2016 Media, Publicity, Web Chair
