Web Mining and Content Analysis

Invitation and dates

We invite research contributions to the Web Mining and Content Analysis Track at the 28th edition of the Web Conference series (formerly known as WWW), to be held May 13-17, 2019 in San Francisco, United States (www2019.thewebconf.org).

The Web Mining and Content Analysis track welcomes submissions of original and high-quality research papers related to the extraction of information from the Web, the analysis of the Web text and social media content, recommendation, and mining of the Web usage data. We especially encourage submissions that propose novel and principled techniques or algorithms that can exploit the special characteristics of the Web, its social media, and user behaviors for such extraction and mining. In addition to new techniques and algorithms, we also seek insights gained from the mining process.

Topics include (but are not limited to)

  • Machine Learning and Data Science for the Web
    • Web data integration and cleaning
    • Learning representation and features from Web data
    • Machine learning algorithms for large-scale content mining
