The paper On local estimations of PageRank: A mean field approach with Santo Fortunato, Marian Boguna and Sandro Flammini has finally appeared in the journal Internet Mathematics. It is an extended version of “Approximating PageRank from in-degree” presented at WAW2006.
Ciro Cattuto and I co-chair the social linking track at HT08, the ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia, which will take place in Pittsburgh in June. Our track received many quality submissions and the technical program is shaping up to be very interesting. Bernardo Huberman will also surely deliver an exciting keynote. Registration is now open!
P.S. Congratulations to Ben, Heather, Justin, and Mike for getting their papers accepted!
Our paper “Ranking Web Sites with Real User Traffic” (by Mark, Fil, Santo, Sandro & Alex) was one of 24 accepted by the First Web Search and Data Mining Conference. WSDM (pronounced “wisdom”) is a brand new ACM conference intended to be complementary to the World Wide Web Conference tracks in search and data mining. With 151 submissions, the acceptance rate was 16%. WSDM 2008 will be held in Stanford, February 2008.
