Industrial and Practical Experience Track Program
Industrial and Practical Experience Chairs' Message
We received many excellent papers as submissions and it is unfortunate that our schedule constraints did not allow us to accept all of them. The number of submissions was forty one, from which we accepted eight. All submissions were submitted to three referees, all received at least two reviews and most received three. In addition to the eight talks corresponding to the accepted refereed papers, we have six invited speakers who will present what we anticipate will be excellent talks. Finally, we have assembled a panel of five distinguished members to discuss the ways in which search engines have and will affect the evolution of the web.

Both positive and negative effects will be discussed as will potential measures to combat the latter. Besides the obvious ways in which search engines help people find content, other effects to be discussed include: the whole phenomenon of web-page spam, based on both text and link (e.g. link farms), the business of “Search Engine Optimization” (optimizing pages to rank highly in web-search
