AIRWeb '05

First International Workshop on
Adversarial Information Retrieval on the Web

10 May 2005 - Chiba, Japan
At the 14th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW2005)



    The attraction of hundreds of millions of web searches per day
    provides significant incentive to content providers to do whatever
    necessary to rank highly in search engine results. The use of
    techniques that push rankings higher than they belong is often
    called spamming a search engine. Such methods typically include
    textual as well as link-based techniques. Like e-mail spam, search
    engine spam is a form of adversarial information retrieval; the
    conflicting goals of accurate results of search providers and high
    positioning by content providers provides an interesting and
    real-world environment to study techniques in optimization,
    obfuscation, and reverse engineering, in addition to the application
    of information retrieval and classification.

    The workshop solicits technical papers and synopses of research in
    progress on any aspect of adversarial information retrieval on the
    Web. Particular areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

     - search engine spam and optimization,
     - crawling the web without detection,
     - link-bombing,
     - reverse engineering of ranking algorithms,
     - advertisement blocking, and
     - web content filtering.

    Papers addressing higher-level concerns (e.g., whether 'open'
    algorithms can succeed in an adversarial environment, whether
    permanent solutions are possible, etc.) are also welcome.
