1. AIRWEB'09 TOPICS

Adversarial Information Retrieval addresses tasks such as gathering,
indexing, filtering, retrieving and ranking information from collections
wherein a subset has been manipulated maliciously. On the Web, the
predominant form of such manipulation is "search engine spamming" (or
"spamdexing"), i.e., malicious attempts to influence the outcome of
ranking algorithms, aimed at getting an undeserved high ranking for some
items in the collection.

We solicit the following types of submissions on any aspect of
adversarial information retrieval on the Web:

* Full papers, decribing contributions to the field,
* Short papers, presenting work in progress, and
* Problem statements, explaining relevant, but unsolved or not
adequately solved problems.

Particular areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Link spam
* Content spam
* Cloaking
* Blog/forum/wiki spam
* Tag spam
* Review and rating spam
* Click fraud detection
* Reverse engineering of ranking algorithms
* Web content filtering
* Online advertisement blocking
* Stealth crawling

The proceedings of the workshop will be included in the ACM Digital
Library. Full and short papers are limited to 8 and 4 pages,
respectively; problem statements will be permitted 2 pages. Papers
should be formatted using the WWW 2009 proceedings style and submitted
via (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=airweb2009).
