APOLOGIES for multiple postings. ============================================================================== WebKDD 2005 - Taming Evolving, Expanding and Multi-faceted Web Clickstreams August 21, 2005, Chicago, Illinois http://db.cs.ualberta.ca/webkdd05/ CALL FOR PAPERS At the 11th ACM SIGKDD International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD 2005) August 22-24, 2005, Chicago, Illinois ============================================================================== Important Dates =============== o June 6, 2005: Electronic submission of full papers & abstracts o June 27, 2005: Author notification o July 11, 2005: Submission of Camera-ready papers o August 21, 2005: Workshop in Chicago, Illinois Workshop Topics =============== WebKDD '05 calls for contributions related to data mining of Web log data, site information, document contents, web semantics, user records and preferences, for the exploitation of the mining results for user profiling, user modeling and for building intelligent Web applications. Web access patterns tend to be very dynamic in nature, due not only to the dynamics of Web site content and structure, but also to changes in the user's interests, and thus their navigation patterns. Furthermore, the inherent and increasing heterogeneity of the Web has required Web-based applications to more effectively integrate a variety of types of data across multiple channels and from different sources such as content, structure, and more recently, semantics. A focus on techniques and architectures for more effective exploitation and mining of such multi-faceted data is likely to lead to the next generation of more useful and more intelligent applications. Emphasis will also be placed on mining massive and evolving Web clickstreams within a stream mining framework, and enhancing Web usage mining using additional information channels. Interesting contributions will include the following subjects: Web Usage Mining and Web Analytics: - Web mining over dynamic and volatile Web sites - Web mining over drifting usage and user data - Modeling, understanding and explaining change in web usage - Incorporating semantics into the analysis of the volatile Web - Designing metrics for the volatile Web Web content and structure mining: - Wrapper generation and information extraction for volatile Web sites - Adaptive Web content mining for Web documents and multimedia contents - Extracting meta-information for a volatile Semantic Web - Integration of Web content, usage, and structure data for Web mining Enabling technologies: - Mining evolving Web data streams - Data warehousing (both web and non-web data) - Data collection and preparation - Multi-relational data mining applied to Web mining - Scalable techniques for clustering Web data - Data visualization techniques - Knowledge Management in Web mining Modeling users and usage: - Generating and updating profiles from implicit or explicit user preferences - Discovering misuse and fraud - Personalized taxonomies or ontologies (for individuals or user communities) - Alert and information filtering systems - Cognitive models for Web navigation and e-commerce interactions Applications: - Recommendation and personalization systems over a volatile Web - Identifying communities in collaborative platforms, fora and marketplaces - Analyzing usage and user behavior in fora, marketplaces and portals - Detecting patterns of malicious behavior and privacy threats - Adaptability in site/user interaction Paper Submission ================ All submissions must be made electronically on http://db.cs.ualberta.ca/webkdd05/MyReview/ and must adhere to formatting instructions, including Latex templates and sample source files on on http://db.cs.ualberta.ca/webkdd05/authors.html. Papers should be no longer than 12 single-column, single-spaced pages (or 5,000 words) inclusive of all references and figures. All papers must be submitted in either PDF (preferred) or postscript. Please ensure that any special fonts used are included in the submitted documents. All papers must be original, and have not been published elsewhere. For more information about formatting your paper and a sample, please see http://db.cs.ualberta.ca/webkdd05/webkddsample.pdf The workshop proceedings are distributed to the SIGKDD'05 attendees who register for the workshop. Note that registration for the workshop is free to the conference attendees. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit a full version of their accepted papers to be published as a chapter in an edited book to be published by Springer-Verlag after a second round of reviews.
