2nd Workshop on Collective Intelligence in Semantic Web and Social
Networks (CISWSN 2008)




co-located with IEEE/WIC/ACM Joint International Conference on Web
Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology 2008, Sydney, Australia,
9-12 December 2008



Semantic web environment has been evolving. Its emerging environment is
characterised by intensive collaboration, cooperation and knowledge
processing activities with formation of complex social and economical
networks in the background. Various knowledge processing techniques are
being used to address data portability and Web information discovery

Collective intelligence is a key issue to collaboratively share
knowledge and even generate new knowledge. Many Web 2.0 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. 

For example, collaborative tagging (e.g., del.icio.us) can play an
important role in knowledge (or information) sharing between people on
social networks. 

Modelling the dynamics and evolution of such complex systems, involving
knowledge processing with intelligent information agents acting on
behalf of thousands of users, is a new and 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, to resolve the challenge issues and to establish worldwide
cooperative research and development. 

We also want to provide a platform for discussing research topics
underlying the concepts of Social Semantics for Linked Data by
contacting members of different communities that share the common
interest on social semantic collaborative intelligence on the web for
developing methods and tools: - Semantic Web researchers who use social
semantic techniques for modeling collaboration and intelligence on the
web. - Members of the Linked Open Data initiative who provide means for
publishing and using linked open data on the web. - Members of the
Intelligent Agent community who 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




- Ontology mapping and merging

- Context and ontologies

- Semantic and knowledge grids

- Applications and case studies for Semantic Web or Semantic Grid


- Data Portability and Linked Data

- Open Linked Data sets (e.g. Health or Environmental domains)

- Harvesting and integration of open linked data sets

- Applications that publish, interlink, and query the Web of Data

- Collective Intelligence - Collaborative tagging on Web 2.0

- Collaborative filtering and personalization

- Community mining techniques

- Trend detection


- Innovative social media applications

- Evolution of complex Web-based social systems

- Online Social Networks on the Web

- Argumentation on the web

Potential participants are invited to submit full papers, not exceeding

4 pages in length, using the IEEE Computer Society's 2-column conference
proceedings format. The formatting instructions and author guidelines
can be found at


The manuscripts should be submitted electronically using the WI-IAT 2008
Cyberchair electronic submission system. Each submission will be
reviewed by at least two program committee members.




Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by the
IEEE Computer Society Press that is indexed by EI. In addition, extended
versions of selected papers may be published in chosen prospective
journals or in an edited book (TBA): 

- International Journal of Intelligent Information and Database Systems

- Journal of Universal Computer Science

- International Journal of Virtual Communities and Social Networking A
number of papers will be selected to be published in a special issue of
Computing and Informatics journal.
