Workshop "Contextualized Usage and Attention Metadata"Information about the attention users give to resources and how they are used (e.g. number of streaming accesses on a video in a period, the type of tasks being executed while using a resource, at which time a resource is accessed, whether a video is watched completely or not, from which country ratings are made, etc.) can be used to improve retrieval relevance, to help recommend resources, or simply to identify the respect context of the user in which the task is being carried out. To be useful, this information needs to be first systematically collected into potentially large datasets. There are open challenges on how to store this information, how to aggregate and merge it over heterogeneous systems, how to distill the data into information and then into knowledge about the resources and how to use this knowledge to build or enhance multimedia applications.
The objective of this workshop is to research content- and user-centric as well as context-aware methodologies, technologies and systems for tracking and managing usage and attention metadata from different applications.
The workshops invites papers dealing with the following topics. Please note that, as the research field has by no means reached a mature state, papers of ongoing work are very much welcome!
Ninth Workshop on Mining and Learning with Graphs (MLG 2011)Ninth Workshop on Mining and Learning with Graphs will be held in conjunction with the 17th ACM SIGKDD Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining that will take place August 21-24, 2011 in San Diego, CA.
EC-TEL 2011ECTEL 2011 will bring together technological developments, learning models, and implementations of new and innovative approaches to training and education. The conference will explore how the synergy of multiple disciplines, ranging from Computer Science, Education, Psychology, Cognitive Science, and Social Science, can provide new, more effective and more especially more sustainable, technology-enhanced learning solutions to learning problems. The conference welcomes researchers and developers from European and Non-European countries and industries to present recent advancements from technologies, applications, and learning models in all areas of technology enhanced learning.
Workshop on Pervasive Communities and Cloud ServicesThe 1st IEEE PerCom Workshop on Pervasive Communities and Service Clouds aims to discuss and present research challenges, state-of-the-art technologies, and advanced research of cloud computing and services to support pervasive communities.
International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics (WIMS'11)The International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics (WIMS'11) will be organised under the auspices of Western Norway Research Institute. The conference will provide an excellent international forum for sharing knowledge and results in theory, methodology and applications of Web intelligence, Web mining and Web semantics.
Fifth European Conference on Technology Enhanced LearningThe last decade has seen significant investment in terms of effort and resources (time, people, money) in innovating education and training. The time has come to make the bold step from small scale innovation research and development to larger scale implementation and evaluation. The time has come to show the world (government, industry, general population) that we have matured to the stage that sustainable learning and learning practices – both in schools and in industry – can be achieved based upon our work.
Call for Papers: GeNeMe 2010 - Virtual Enterprises, Communities & Social NetworksAm 07. und 08.10.2010 findet zum 13. Mal die Tagung "Virtual Enterprises, Communities & Social Networks - Gemeinschaften in Neuen Medien", GeNeMe'10 in Dresden, an der Fakultät Informatik statt. Die GENEME’10 stellt nicht nur ein Diskussionsforum für Fachvertreter aus Forschung und Lehre dar, sondern betont den interdisziplinären Dialog von Hochschule und Wirtschaft, den Erfahrungsaustausch zwischen Teilnehmern verschie¬denster Fachrichtungen, Organisationen und Institutionen aus Wirtschaft und Verwaltung.
W3C Workshop — RDF Next StepsThe goal of the workshop is to gather feedback from the Web community on whether and, if yes, in which direction RDF should evolve. One of the main issues the Workshop should help deciding is whether it is timely for W3C to start a new RDF Working Group to define and standardize a next version of RDF.Ivan Herman, W3C
ICGREEN 2010 – International Conference on Green ComputingInspired by the need to take adequate actions against humankind’s rapidly destroying the conditions for prosperity and profit, the 1st International Conference on Green Computing, ICGREEN 2010 focuses on the multi-disciplinary eco-domain. The conference aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners who are interested in pushing to sustainable development through innovative Information and Communication Technology - ICT and related solutions, and whose work has impact on the acceleration of the development of truly sustainable (eco-effective) technologies. Such technologies will make use of advanced IT solutions and will facilitate activities of great societal relevance.
