  3rd Workshop on Collective Intelligence in Semantic Web and Social 
Networks (CISWSN 2010)

        co-located with IEEE/WIC/ACM Joint International Conference on 
Web Intelligence and
                Intelligent Agent Technology 2010, Toronto, Canada, Aug. 
31 - Sept. 3, 2010

The Semantic Web is slowly evolving towards its original vision of a 
Linked Web of Data,
in which the machines are able to interpret and exchange knowledge, 
acting as proxy agents
on behalf of human. Even so, the Linked Data Web maintains a large 
human-driven side,
characterized by intensive collaboration, cooperation and knowledge 
processing activities,
that lead to emerging complex social and economical networks. Various 
knowledge processing
techniques are being used to address data portability and Web 
information discovery problems.
Collective intelligence is a key issue to collaboratively share and 
generate knowledge.
Many Web 2.0 (or 3.0) platforms (e.g., blogs and wikis) have been 
developed to exchange
meaningful information and support user-centered tasks on a variety of 
domains (e.g.,
e-learning, e-commerce, and e-government). Local knowledge is annotated 
into a large
repositories of content including not only simple documents but also 
multimedia data. As
an example, collaborative tagging (e.g., del.icio.us) still plays an 
important role in
knowledge (or information) sharing between people on social networks. 
Modeling the
dynamics and evolution of such complex networked systems, involving 
knowledge processing
with intelligent information agents acting on behalf of thousands of 
users, is a promising
research area with many practical applications.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and 
practitioners in areas of
knowledge and intelligence, semantics, agents and grid computing to 
share their visions,
research achievements and solutions as well as to establish worldwide 
cooperative research
and development. At the same time, we want to provide a platform for 
discussing research
topics underlying the concepts of Social Semantics for the Linked Web of 
Data by inviting
members of different communities that share this common interest of 
social semantic
collaborative intelligence on the web:

* Semantic Web researchers developing and using social semantic 
techniques for modeling
  collaboration and intelligence on the Web,
* Complex Social Network researchers building static, dynamic and 
prediction models of
  complex networks and developing new nature-inspired network analysis 
methods,
* Linked Data researchers providing means for publishing and using 
Linked Open Data on
  the Web, and
* The Intelligent Agents community that develop agents and algorithms 
for collaboration
  and intelligence on the Web.

This will give an opportunity to push further the discussion upon the 
potential of social
semantic collaborative intelligence across these communities.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

* Semantic and knowledge grids
