IWT 2004

1st Workshop on Intelligent Web Technologies


Workshop at ROCLING XVI
Howard Pacific Green Bay, Taipei, September 2, 2004 http://myweb.ncku.edu.tw/~whlu/iwt2004.htm

Call For Participants


IWT'04 will include five sessions covering interesting topics like Web Ontology, Semantic Web, Web Usage Mining, Email Spam Filtering, Web Search and Intelligent Agents, and one keynote speech (slides) by Professor Ming-Syan Chen (IEEE Fellow, National Taiwan University). The preliminary workshop program is posted at http://myweb.ncku.edu.tw/~whlu/iwt2004-program-v11.htm and the proceeding is welcome to be downloaded at http://linsj.csie.ncku.edu.tw/lab2/iwt2004-proceeding.pdf.



The Web is becoming the largest data repository in the world and presents a key driving force for a large spectrum of information technology (IT). How to benefit intelligent Web-based information systems through the mining of diverse Web data resources is being studied in the emerging research area of Web knowledge discovery.

To develop effective and intelligent Web applications and services, it is critical to discover useful knowledge through analyzing large amounts of contents, hidden content structures, or usage patterns of Web data resources. To achieve such goal, a variety of techniques in diverse research areas are needed to integrate properly, including natural language processing, information extraction, information retrieval, information filtering, knowledge representation, knowledge management, machine learning, databases, data mining, Web mining, text mining, agent, human-computer interaction, and semantic Web. These integrated techniques must address the important challenges from the scale, the heterogeneous and dynamic nature of Web contents and usage patterns.

This workshop intends to bring together researchers and practitioners to foster the exchange of ideas and the dissemination of emerging techniques on intelligent Web technology (knowledge discovery through Web usage, structure and content mining). The workshop will capture current important developments of new models, new methodologies and new tools for building a variety of embodiments of scalable, effective and intelligent Web-based information systems.



Original contributions are solicited in the following subjects (but not necessarily limited to):

  • Web information extraction and wrapper generation
  • Web content and structure mining
  • Web Information retrieval and filtering
  • Web mining for knowledge discovery, business intelligence and security
  • Web data collection and analysis, including query logs, click streams, call center streams, and transactional data
  • Web data preparation techniques, including cleansing, transformation, and sampling
  • Text mining for creating metadata
  • Learning taxonomies and ontologies from the Web
  • Classification/clustering of Web pages (sites) and multimedia content
  • Web search engines, meta-search engines and inference engine
  • E-mail spamming and classification
  • Semantic Web
  • Intelligent Web agents
  • Knowledge community formation and support
  • Intelligent E-technology
  • Intelligent human–Web Interaction
  • Web-based personalized techniques



The workshop will run in one day of approximately 6 hours of 1-2 keynote speeches and paper presentations. The keynote speakers will be announced soon.



All papers must be written in either Chinese or English, and in single column, double-spaced format submitted in either PDF or MS Word format to the co-chair Dr. Wen-Hsiang Lu (whlu@mail.ncku.edu.tw).
