Word comes from Brian D. Davison of Lehigh University of the upcoming First International Workshop on Adversarial Information Retrieval on the Web workshop, to be held at the 14th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW2005), 10-14 May 2005, Chiba, Japan.
The workshop is intended to bring together researchers and practitioners that are concerned with the on-going efforts in adversarial information retrieval on the Web (aka search engine spam, cloaking, link bombing and other black hat techniques). The program committee features an impresive lineup of both academics and representatives from many of the major search engines.
Brian's looking for all serious SEO researchers to submit papers and, of course, attend the workshop. We'll keep a close eye on this and report back on the efforts of this ad-hoc committee pursuing a very worthy cause.
