IV International Workshop on Web and Text Intelligence (WTI - 2012)

a workshop co-located with Brazilian Conference on Intelligent System - BRACIS 2012 (XXI Brazilian Symposium on Artificial Intelligence - SBIA; XII Brazilian Symposium on Neural Network - SBRN and IX Encontro de Inteligência Artificial - ENIA 2012.

October 21, 2012
Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil

Web and text intelligence are related areas that have been used to improve human computer interaction in general and in particular to explore and analyse information available on the Internet. Both areas benefit from knowledge, concepts and techniques from artificial intelligence, statistics, linguistic, graph theory, among other fields. Web and Text Mining are hot application areas for AI and source for inspiration for new AI methods and algorithms. The growing of social networks and Web site interactivity demands more powerful representation for Web and its dynamics, such as Graphs and Complex Networks. Complex Network formalisms are being applied not only for the Web but to approach many other complex phenomena studied in AI. Known developments are self adaptive web sites, usage monitoring, web site personalization, social network analyses, community detection, automatic Web site organization, information retrieval, information extraction, large document collection mining and exploration, visualization, usability, among others.

The Web and Text Intelligence workshop 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.

This workshop is a follow up of the 3rd International Workshop on Web and Text Intelligence which took place in São Bernardo, Brazil, October 2010, as a workshop of SBIA10; the 2nd International Workshop on Web and Text Intelligence which took place in São Carlos, Brazil, September 2009, as a workshop of STIL09; the 1st Web an Network Intelligence which took place in Aveiro, Portugal, October 2009, as a thematic track of EPIA09; and the 1st International Workshop on Web and Text Intelligence which took place in Salvador, Brazil, October 2008, as a workshop of SBIA08.
