Call For Papers


2009 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI-09)
Milan, Italy, September 15-18, 2009
Workshop on
Soft approaches to information access on the Web

endorsed by the EUSFLAT Working Group on Soft Computing in Database Management and Information Retrieval (

The Web has become the largest available repository of multimedia information. The huge growth and the fast rate of change of the Web make it really hard to retrieve information relevant to specific users' needs. Web data are typically unlabelled, distributed, heterogeneous and time varying. Hence, many interesting research topics have emerged recently to improve the information access on the Web, e.g., identifying and removing malicious content and linking, identifying content of good quality, exploiting user feedback, and improving the query language.
Subjectivity, vagueness, and imprecision are typical properties of any information access activity on the Web. The fuzzy logic and soft computing based tools are very appropriate to deal with imprecision, vagueness, partial truth, and approximation. With such tools it is possible to define flexible approaches to improve personalized information access processes on the Web. The use of both fuzzy and soft computing tools can contribute satisfactorily to solve the various problems that have recently been identified in Web access.
The objective of the workshop is to provide an opportunity to exchange ideas on the application of fuzzy logic and soft computing in the design of flexible approaches to information access on the Web. The workshop aims at providing a forum for the discussion of recent advances in this research field and to offer an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to identify new promising research directions.

The organizers welcome contributions that report on the application of fuzzy and soft computing tools within the fields of (but not limited to)

• Information retrieval systems
• Information filtering systems
• Recommendation systems
• Web intelligent agent systems
• Digital libraries
• Web quality evaluation
• Hypermedia information systems
• Internet meta-searcher systems
• E-commerce applications
• Text categorization on the Web
• Database systems
• Intelligent database interfaces
• Web related technologies in data
representation and querying

All accepted workshop papers will be published in the Proceedings of WI-IAT09 Workshops by IEEE-CS Press. Moreover, the authors of selected papers will be invited to submit their extended versions to be published in a post-workshop special issue of an ISI-listed journal.

Important Dates:
• Due date for full workshop papers submission: April 30, 2009.
• Notification of paper acceptance to authors: June 10, 2009.
• Submission of the camera-ready versions of accepted papers: June 30, 2009.
• Workshop day: September 15, 2009.
