There are several research workshops on online advertising:
- The Third International Workshop on Data Mining and Audience Intelligence for Advertising (ADKDD'09), in conjunction with the Fifteenth International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (SIGKDD'09), June 28, 2009, Paris, France. Submission deadline: May 20, 2009.
- Information Retrieval and Advertising, a workshop at the Thirty Second Annual ACM SIGIR Conference (SIGIR-2009), July 23, 2009 Boston, MA, USA. Submission deadline: May 19, 2009.
As online advertising is the primary income of search engines and a number of other Internet-related corporations, this is a very must for understanding what it is running behind that scenes!
