From the call for papers:
WSDM (pronounced “wisdom”) is one of the premier conferences covering research in the areas of search and data mining on the Web. The Seventh ACM WSDM Conference will take place in New York City, USA during February 25-28, 2014.
WSDM publishes original, high-quality papers related to search and data mining on the Web and the Social Web, with an emphasis on practical but principled novel models of search, retrieval and data mining, algorithm design and analysis, economic implications, and in-depth experimental analysis of accuracy and performance.
WSDM 2014 is a highly selective, single track meeting that includes invited talks as well as refereed full papers. Topics covered include but are not limited to:
Papers emphasizing novel algorithmic approaches are particularly encouraged, as are empirical/analytical studies of specific data mining problems in other scientific disciplines, in business, engineering, or other application domains. Application-oriented papers that make innovative technical contributions to research are welcome. Visionary papers on new and emerging topics are also welcome.
Authors are explicitly discouraged from submitting papers that do not present clearly their contribution with respect to previous works, that contain only incremental results, and that do not provide significant advances over existing approaches.
Sets a high bar but one that can be met.
Would be very nice PR to have a topic map paper among those accepted.
