Call for Breaking News - Abstracts

The International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics (WIMS'11) will provide an excellent international forum for sharing knowledge and results in theory, methodology and applications of Web intelligence, Web mining and Web semantics.

The WIMS'11 program will feature several invited talks, peer-reviewed contributed talks, tutorials , workshops  and posters. However, in addition, as an innovation for WIMS’11, some time at the conference will be set aside for "breaking news" presentations submitted on the basis of a two-page abstract. These presentations may report on

  • ongoing or unpublished projects,
  • projects already completed elsewhere,
  • partially developed ideas,
  • negative results etc.,

and are meant as informal forum to encourage discussion.   Abstracts should summarize and highlight why the projects will be of interest to the WIMS community. 

Abstracts on all aspects of Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics are strongly encouraged, including but not limited to:

  • Semantics-driven Information Retrieval
  • Semantic Agent Systems
  • Semantic Data Search
  • Interaction Paradigms for Semantic Search
  • Evaluation of Semantic Search
  • User Interfaces
  • Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
  • Web Mining
  • Ontology Mining and Knowledge Discovery in Knowledge Bases
  • Ubiquitous Computing
  • Semantic Deep Web and Intelligent e-Technology
  • Representation Techniques for Web-based knowledge
  • Quality of Life Technology for Web Document Access
  • Rule markup languages and systems
  • Machine Learning & Knowledge Discovery
  • Semantic 3D media and content
  • Optimization-based Data Mining and Web Intelligence
  • Web Personalization and Recommender Systems
  • Social Search and Web Logs Analysis
  • Opinion Mining for Business Intelligence 
  • Natural Language Processing and Web Intelligence
  • Intelligent Web Interaction 
  • Service-Oriented Intelligence
  • Collaborative Agents 
  • Human-Oriented Knowledge
  • Scalability vs. expressivity of reasoning on the Web

This session will be divided into two parts: a presentation part open to all in which all participating projects present themselves; and an interaction part restricted to participating projects and attendees for one-on-one meetings.

Each project will have no more than 4 slides and 10 minutes to present itself to the attendees.
