AIRWeb: Adversarial Information Retrieval on the Web

The international AIRWeb workshop series brings together both researchers and industry practitioners to present and discuss advances in the state-of-the-art in Adversarial Information Retrieval on the Web. Topics of interest typically include:

  • search engine spam and optimization,
  • crawling the web without detection,
  • link-bombing (a.k.a. Google-bombing),
  • comment spam, referrer spam,
  • blog spam (splogs),
  • malicious tagging,
  • reverse engineering of ranking algorithms,
  • advertisement blocking, and
  • web content filtering.
The AIRWeb workshops provide a focused venue for both mature and early-stage work in web-based adversarial IR.
