II International Workshop on Web and Text Intelligence (WTI - 2009)

a workshop co-located with STIL 2009

September 7-11, 2009
São Carlos, Brazil

Web and text intelligence are related areas that seek to improve human computer interaction in general and providing users with tools to explore and analyze information available on the Internet. Both areas benefit from knowledge, concepts and techniques from artificial intelligence, statistics, linguistics, among other fields. Web and Text Mining are hot application areas for AI and a source of inspiration for new AI methods and algorithms. Known developments include self adaptive web sites, usage monitoring, web site personalization, information retrieval, information extraction, automatic Web site organization, large document collection mining and exploration, visualization and usability.


The 2nd International Workshop on Web and Text Intelligence at STIL09 expects to gather researchers who work on methods and theories (and their applications) that help us to understand the Web and to build automatic tools for better exploiting its complex world. We also would like to bring together researchers who develop new contributions dealing with Portuguese language in the context of the Web or text mining applications.


This workshop is a follow-up of the 1st International Workshop on Web and Text Intelligence which took place in Salvador, Brazil, October 2008, as a workshop associated to SBIA08.
