Call For Papers

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 problems.
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., 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 communities.

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):

- 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.
