IDEAS 2014 (Web and Text Intelligence Track)

(Web and Text Intelligence Track):

Web and text intelligence are related areas that have been used to improve human computer 
interaction in general and in particular to explore and analyze 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.
This special track will include relevant and novel work on methods and theories (and their 
applications) that help us understand the Web and how to build automatic tools for better 
exploiting its complex world, including potentially useful techniques for exploring textual 
sources and other kinds of contents.
