Call for Abstracts

The organizing committee is seeking contributions for a two-day workshop held in conjunction with NIPS*2008, a premier conference for machine learning research.

The goal of the workshop is to advance the state-of-the-art in research related to the world wide web, and in particular foster discussion and work across the typical disciplinary boundaries. Contributions that demonstrate work related to the web in the following areas are welcome:

  • Machine learning and probabilistic modeling
  • Game theory, auction and mechanism design
  • Knowledge representation and reasoning
  • Social networks and collective intelligence
  • Privacy and privacy preserving learning

We will give preference to submissions that link two or more of the above topics.

The workshop format is a mix of discussion sessions, presentation of submitted work, and talks by invited speakers. Confirmed invited speakers are Chris Burges (Microsoft Research), Pedro Domingos (U Washington), Michael Schwarz (Yahoo), Tarek Najm (Microsoft), Doug Lenat (CyCorp), and Edward Chang (Google).

Submission Information

Please submit a 2-page extended abstract of your work. Detailed submission instructions and further information can be found on the workshop homepage, /en-us/projects/beyond_search/

Authors of accepted contributions will be invited to give a 20-minute presentation at the workshop.
