WTI 2015

A thematic track of the 2nd Annual International Symposium on Information Management and Big Data – SIMBig 2015.

Perú - Cusco

Track on Web and Text Intelligence (WTI 2015) Español English

Web and text intelligence are related areas that have been used to improve human computer interaction both in general and in particular to explore and analyze information that is available on the Internet. With the advent of social networks and the emergence of services such as Facebook, Twitter, and others, research in these areas has been greatly enhanced. In recent years, shared knowledge and experiences have established new and different types of personal and communal relationships which have been leveraged by social networks scientists to produce new insights. In addition there has been a huge increase in community activities on social networks.

The Web and Text Intelligence (WTI) track of SIMBig will provide a forum that brings together researchers and practitioners for exploring technologies, issues, experiences and applications that help us to understand the Web and to build automatic tools to better exploit this complex environment. The WTI track will foster collaborations, exchange of ideas and experiences among people working in a variety of highly cross-disciplinary research fields such as computer science, linguistics, statistics, sociology, economics, and business.

The WTI track is a follow up of the 4th International Workshop on Web and Text Intelligence, which took place in Curitiba, Brazil, October 2012, as a workshop of BRACIS 2012; the 3rd International Workshop on Web and Text Intelligence, which took place in São Bernardo, Brazil, October 2010, as a workshop of SBIA10; the 2nd International Workshop on Web and Text Intelligence, which took place in São Carlos, Brazil, September 2009, as a workshop of STIL09; the 1st Web and Network Intelligence, which took place in Aveiro, Portugal, October 2009, as a thematic track of EPIA09; and the 1st International Workshop on Web and Text Intelligence, which took place in Salvador, Brazil, October 2008, as a workshop of SBIA08.
