11th Panhellenic Conference in Informatics
Special Track on Web Search and Mining

Patras, May 18-20, 2007

http://pci2007.upatras.gr/program.php

The Web is constantly growing to become a central part of cultural, educational,
social and commercial life. Millions of users today access the Web looking for
information on a multitude of topics, reading the news, writing about their
experiences in blogs, searching for products and services etc.
This explosive growth of the Web has created an ever-increasing volume of data
which are heterogeneous and semi-structured in nature. Search engines are facing
great challenges while assisting the users in finding useful information. Such
challenges are related to efficiently searching and accessing Web data,
organizing them in an intuitive way and mining and extracting knowledge from them.

For the Web Search and Mining track, we invite original submissions addressing
the challenging aspects of Web search and mining, including but not limited to
the following:

- Mining Web content and link structure
- Web usage mining and traffic analysis
- Personalized Web search, building user profiles and recommendations
- Use of social networks in Web search
- New methods for organizing (e.g. clustering and classifying) Web data
- Summarization of Web data and multi-faceted search
- Distributed and peer-to-peer search
- Meta-search and rank aggregation
- Linguistic analysis and Web mining
- Search engine design and architecture: crawling, indexing and ranking of Web
data.
- Searching and mining the Hidden Web
- Web knowledge representation
- User interfaces to facilitate search
- Web data integration and data cleaning

Paper Submission:

Papers should not exceed 8 pages and should adhere to the formatting

Message 2: Inaugural Workshop on Computational Japanese Studies
Date: 25-Jan-2007
From: Timothy Baldwin <timcsse.unimelb.edu.au>
Subject: Inaugural Workshop on Computational Japanese Studies



Full Title: Inaugural Workshop on Computational Japanese Studies

Date: 15-Mar-2007 - 16-Mar-2007
Location: Kanto, Japan
Contact Person: Timothy Baldwin
Meeting Email: timcsse.unimelb.edu.au
Web Site: http://www.ish.ci.i.u-tokyo.ac.jp/coJaS/index.html

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Subject Language(s): Japanese (jpn)

Call Deadline: 15-Feb-2007

Meeting Description:

The Inaugural Workshop on Computational Japanese Studies is a broad gathering of
researchers with interests in the applications of computer technology to
Japanese Studies, i.e. the Japanese language, culture, history and/or
literature. Presentations are sought in a wide variety of related areas, including:

- Human computer interfaces
- Computer-assisted language learning
- Computer-assisted applied and theoretical linguistics
- Lexicography and dictionary interfaces
- Computers and translation

The workshop will consist of a series of general presentations on recent
research in the broad area of Japanese studies and technology.

Inaugural Workshop on Computational Japanese Studies: Call for Presentations

March 15-16, 2007
Kanto, Japan
http://www.ish.ci.i.u-tokyo.ac.jp/coJaS/index.html
Submission deadline: February 15, 2007

Call for presentations

Outline:

There are many researchers interested in the applications of computer technology
to Japanese studies throughout the world, but there is no common forum for these
researchers to come together. As a result, there is a lack of research dialogue
between sites, and only small numbers of papers are published on the topic, in
diverse forums. In order to promote further collaboration and the exchange of
ideas, we invite interested participants to present their research to an open
audience of like-minded colleagues, in a small scale, informal workshop
specifically focusing on this area.

We also welcome participants who aren't directly involved with computational
Japanese studies, but whose interests overlap with those of the workshop, e.g.
computational Chinese or Korean studies.

The workshop will consist of a series of general presentations on recent
research in the broad area of Japanese studies and technology.

Venue:

The workshop will be held in the Kanto (greater Tokyo) area of Japan. The final
location of the workshop will be announced closer to the date of the workshop.

Submission Details:

Interested participants should e-mail a 2-page PDF abstract of their proposed
presentation to Kumiko Tanaka-Ishii (kumikoi.u-tokyo.ac.jp) by February 15, 2007.

Important Dates:

Deadline for abstract submissions: February 15, 2007
Workshop on Computational Japanese Studies: March 15-16, 2007

Organizing Committee:

Kumiko Tanaka-Ishii (University of Tokyo)
Timothy Baldwin (University of Melbourne)
Lars Yencken (University of Melbourne)
Zhihui Jin (University of Tokyo)
