The Networking Effects of the Web

Each year, prior to the World Wide Web Conference, I spend time compiling some of search-related papers and panel overviews that are scheduled for presentation at the conference. I plan to do the same thing this year before the Fourteenth International World Wide Web Conference in May. I'll start today with this panel overview and extended abstract that was posted earlier this week. The session is titled: Exploiting the Dynamic Networking Effects of the Web, and will feature several highly respected researchers including:
+ Dr. Narayanan Shivakumar, Director of Ad Systems at Google
+ Dr. Gary Flake, Head of the Yahoo Research Lab
+ Prof. Soumen Chakrabarthi, from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay.
