WSDM 2010 Starts Today

Today is the beginning of the Web Search and Data Mining conference, WSDM 2010. You can follow the conference on Twitter, #wsdm2010 as Daniel Tunkelang, Ian Soboroff, and others are tweeting it. The proceedings are also available. I hope to highlight some of the papers here in future posts.

Two of my UMass CIIR friends and colleagues have papers that they are presenting:
Good luck to them, and check out their papers.

Since I don't have a paper, I'm not attending. As a side note, I think that academic conferences should drop the registration fee for students. I would have been able to afford the travel given the proximity, but the registration fee was prohibitively expensive for me.

For those of you attending, please take notes and share them!

  1. In the morning, Soumen Chakrabarti gave an interesting, grand-vision, keynote. I will try to share some of my notes later.
