Special Session on Web Intelligence & Data Mining


JSAI2012, The 26th Annual Conference of Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence, Yamaguchi city, Japan, June 12-15, 2012.

The World Wide Web has been deemed as the age for AI renaissance by Daniel E. O’Leary 15 years ago when WWW exhibited an exponential growth at the first three years in 1997. As abundant information is generated with cost-free, instantaneous publication, many techniques and methods are developed and applied for dealing problems such as information retrieval, natural language processing, opinion mining, product recommendation, information integration, social network analysis, and other intelligent applications. The proliferation of text and data has also resulted in an increased demand for text and data mining. Thus, the development of techniques for mining unstructured, semi-structured, and fully structured data has become quite important in both academia and industry. The special session aims to bring together the researchers in the field of Web intelligence and data mining to present the latest studies. We will expect the submissions from researchers of TAAI and JSAI communities, but we will also welcome submissions from all over the world. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Collaborative filtering and recommendation
  • Data mining and usage analysis
  • Information and knowledge markets
  • Text mining and Natural language processing
  • Social network and analysis
  • User interface and visualization of the Web
