Were any examples provided of papers that would fit in well (and more importantly), papers that sort of fit in ? I'm trying to figure out what it means for something to "open up a new area". Does it have to be a new area of computation ? For example, would the original Kleinberg HITS paper have been appropriate ?

It's easy enough to list examples of papers that "open up a new area" now, after they have already done so. It's a little harder to pick the winners ahead of time. Perhaps we should chip in to buy the program committee a time machine.
