Next workshop: AIRWeb 2008 in Beijing, China.
AIRWeb is a series of international workshops focusing on Adversarial Information Retrieval on the Web that brings together both researchers and industry practitioners, to present and discuss advances in the state of the art.
AIRWeb'07 was co-located with the WWW conference in Banff, Canada. The workshop proceedings are available. The program included the presentation of peer-reviewed research articles, covering several adversarial aspects of Web search.
The workshop also hosted the first track of the Web Spam Challenge (supported by the EU Network of Excellence PASCAL), that tested different spam detection techniques on a shared reference collection.
