Aims and Scope

The 2-nd International Conference on Emerging Intelligent Data and Web
Technologies (EIDWT-2011) is dedicated to the dissemination of original
contributions that are related to the theories, practices and concepts of
emerging data technologies yet most importantly of their applicability in
business and academia towards a collective intelligence approach. In
particular, EIDWT-2011 will discuss advances about utilizing and exploiting
data generated from emerging data technologies such as Data Centers, Data
Grids, Clouds, Crowds, Mashups, Social Networks and/or other Web 2.0
implementations towards a collaborative and collective intelligence approach
leading to advancements of virtual organizations and their user communities.
This is because, current and future Web and Web 2.0 implementations will
store and continuously produce a vast amount of data, which if combined and
analyzed through a collective intelligence manner will make a difference in
the organizational settings and their user communities. Thus, the scope of
EIDWT-2011 is to discuss methods and practices (including P2P) which bring
various emerging data technologies together to capture, integrate, analyze,
mine, annotate and visualize data - made available from various community
users - in a meaningful and collaborative for the organization manner.
Finally, EIDWT-2011 aims to provide a forum for original discussion and
prompt future directions in the area.


Papers should be focused on past, current and emerging methods and/or use of
data technologies with a particular focus to collective intelligence. For
example: Data Stream, Click stream, Cloud Computing, Crowd Computing, Data
Annotation, Data Architecture, Data Capture, Data Clustering/Partitioning,
Data Discovery/Management, Data Grids, Data Integration, Data Management and
Knowledge Engineering, Data Mashups, Data Query Systems and Languages, Data
Push/Notification, Data Scheduling, Data/Text Mining, P2P, Reality Mining,
Data Visualization, Emerging Applications, Emerging/Enabling Collaborative
Data Technologies, Trust and Security, Web Science, Web 2.0, Ubiquitus

The main topic areas include, but are not limited to:

o Critical Reviews on Theory and Practices in Collective Intelligence
o User Communities/Virtual Organizational Structures and Dynamics
o Ad-Hoc Social Networking Analysis, Business Intelligence
o Self-organising Systems and Networks
o Self-adaptive Ant Colony, Swarm and Evolutionary Agents
