Workshop "AI on the Web" (AIW-2012):


Workshop at KI-2012,
35th Annual Conference on Artificial Intelligence,
September 24-27, 2012: Saarbrücken, Germany


The World Wide Web has become a unique source of knowledge on virtually
any imaginable topic. It is continuously fed by companies, academia, and
common people with a variety of information in numerous formats. By
today, the Web has become an invaluable asset for research, learning,
commerce, socializing, communication, and entertainment. Still, making
full use of the knowledge contained on the Web is an ongoing challenge
due to the special properties of the Web as an information source:

- Heterogeneity: web data occurs in any kind of formats, languages,
data structures and terminology one can imagine.
- Decentrality: the Web is inherently decentralized which means that
there is no central point of control that can ensure consistency or
- Scale: the Web is huge and processing data at web scale is a major
challenge in particular for knowledge‐intensive methods.

These characteristics make the Web a challenging but also a promising
chance for AI methods that can help to make the knowledge on the Web
more accessible for humans and machines by capturing, representing and
using information semantics. The relevance and importance of AI methods
for the Web is underlined by the fact that the AAAI – as one of the
major AI conferences – has been featuring a special track “AI on the Web”
for more than five years now. In line with this track and in order to
stress this relevance within the German AI community, we are looking for
work on relevant methods and their application to web data. Examples of
such methods include but are not limited to:

- Logics and Reasoning
- Distributed Problem Solving
- Information Extraction
- Text Mining
- Machine Learning
- Probabilistic methods
- Argumentation

Examples of applications include but are not limited to:

- Semantic Search
- Data Integration
- Ontologies
- Knowledge Discovery
- User Interfaces
- Image Processing
- Social Networks

It has become quite clear that in most cases a single method is
insufficient for solving real-world problems. Therefore, we are
particularly interested in approaches that combine insights from
different areas of AI to solve problems on the web. Examples for
such approaches include but are not limited to:

- Distributed Logical Reasoning
- Statistical Relational Learning
- Ontology-Based Natural Language Processing
- Uncertain Reasoning with Description Logics

The workshop welcomes full technical contributions containing an
application of the described methods to real data on the web as the
workshop is meant as a forum for discussing experiences with applying
AI methods to real world data. Furthermore, interesting problems and
position statements on issues involving the application of AI methods
on the web can be submitted in form of short papers.

Paper Submission
Submitted papers, which have to be in English, must not exceed 12 pages
in Springer LNCS style for full technical contributions and 2 pages for
short contributions. Over-length submissions will be rejected without review.

Full technical papers are expected to report on new research that makes a
substantial technical contribution to the field.

Short papers are expected to report on interesting problems, position statements,
or other issues of interest related to AI methods for the Web. Short papers are
only subject to a light review.

Submission of all papers is handled via EasyChair. Please follow the guidelines
on the website of the workshop:
