2nd CFP: ECML/PKDD Workshop WBBTMine'08

2nd Call for Papers
Wikis, Blogs, Bookmarking Tools - Mining the Web 2.0 (WBBTMine'08)


Workshop at ECML/PKDD 2008 - Antwerp, Belgium, 15 Sept. 2008

Important dates
* Paper submission deadline: June 16
* Author Notification: July 16
* Camera Ready Papers: August 14
* Workshop: September 15

Many Web 2.0 applications have rapidly emerged on the Web. This
indicates a currently ongoing grass-root creation of knowledge spaces
on the Web. The reason for the success of cooperative Web tools (wikis,
blogs, etc.) and resource sharing (social bookmark systems, photo
sharing systems, etc.) lies mainly in the fact that no specific skills
are needed for publishing and editing. Web 2.0 applications are a very
interesting application area for data mining. Unlike in traditional data
mining scenarios, data does not emerge from a small number of
(heterogeneous) data sources, but virtually from millions of different
sources. As there is only minimal coordination, these sources can
overlap or diverge in many ways. These fundamental features of
heterogeneity and independence, known from collaborative filtering, are
not limited to ratings and recommendations but extend to arbitrary
complex data and data mining tasks. Steps into this new and exciting
application area are the analysis of this new data, then the adaptation
of well-known data mining and machine learning algorithm and finally
the development of new algorithms.

As research analyzing Wikis, Blogs and the structure underlying Social
Bookmarks matures (and Web 2.0 workshops and conferences begin to
proliferate), this workshop seeks contributions focused on
state-of-the-art data mining algorithm and machine learning methods on
Web 2.0 data. Papers describing new algorithms working on Web 2.0 data
or work discussing aspects on the intersection of Web 2.0 and Knowledge
Discovery are also highly welcome. In short, we want to accelerate the
process of identifying the power of advanced data mining operating on
Web 2.0 data, as well as the process of advancing data mining through
lessons learned in analyzing these new data.

Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:
* network analysis of social resources sharing systems
* analysis of wikis and blogs
* analysis of social online communities
* discovering social structures and communities
* analysis of network dynamics
* discovering misuse and fraud
* Web 2.0 personalization
* Web 2.0 technologies for recommender systems
* information retrieval in the Web 2.0
* community detection
* emergent semantics
* Web 2.0 based ontology learning
* predicting trends and user behavior
* semantic association identification by link analysis
* Web 2.0 crawling
* mining information from distributed and re-combined Web 2.0
sources / mash-ups
* mobile Web 2.0: social search; mobile communities; ?
* usage interfaces for mining: parallelization of Web and mobile
interfaces; mash-up interfaces
* interactions between usage interfaces and data collection,
and presentation
* privacy challenges in Web 2.0 and mobile Web 2.0 applications
* applications of any of the above methods and technologies
