ENIC 2014 : European Network Intelligence Conference


When Sep 29, 2014 - Sep 30, 2014
Where Wroclaw, Poland
Submission Deadline Jun 9, 2014
Notification Due Jul 3, 2014
Final Version Due Jul 15, 2014

Call For Papers

We are more and more surrounded by different kinds of networks, interconnected systems and vast amounts of interrelated data. Various web collaborative portals, blogs, wikis, video publishing services (youtube), ecommerce sites (eBay), social networking sites (Facebook) sensor networks, smart phones exchanging multimedia as well as IT systems collaborating with one another in most organisations are good example of networks that require new adequate analytical methods.

The aim of the annual European Network Intelligence Conference (ENIC) is to create an open premier forum to exchange knowledge and experience as well as to discuss recent advances, theories, and techniques related to both various types of networks and intelligent analytical computational methods.

Every edition of the conference will focus on only few selected more specific scientific domains – tracks. The first event will include two such tracks: Social network and social media analysis, and Recommender Systems. The tracks will bring together the research groups from the specified disciplines, along with many of the e-commerce companies interested in applications of the intelligent tools in their products. The track will enable researchers and practitioners to present their latest research and identify challenges in recommendation systems. The special interest will be focused on the design cooperation platform for academia and industry.

Initially, the conference will be led and hosted by the ENGINE Centre and partnering organisations and substantially supported by the Seventh Framework Programme, however, we hope to create a wider active ENIC community for the future

Each European Network Intelligence Conference will invite several keynote speakers worldwide recognized.

Since ENIC 2014 is sponsored by the ENGINE Centre, authors of up to 40 best accepted papers will be registered free of charge; one author per paper. The ENGINE Centre will cover their participation, proceedings costs, coffee brakes and banquet but only if they will present in person their accepted paper during the conference. It does not include travel and accommodation costs.


Keynote Speakers
Bing Liu, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA, talk on sentiment analysis
Alexander Tuzhilin, New York University, USA, talk on recommender systems
Lise C. Getoor, University of Maryland, USA

(2) Recommender systems

Recommender Systems are applied to provide customized information for their users in a complex environment, i.e. web-based systems. This alternating environment captures not only information needs of differentiated users but also the various system platforms, which are used in many different contexts. In such circumstances so-called classical information systems tend to be very ineffective and there is a great need for applications of adaptive technologies in general or recommender agents in particular. Recommendation exploits past behaviors and user similarities to generate a list of information items that is personally tailored to an end-user’s preferences. Topics of submitted papers should focus on Recommender Systems and various adaptive techniques concerning both theoretical and application aspects in the following areas:

Case studies of applications
E-learning in the web environment
Expert systems
Hyperlink recommendation
Information retrieval and filtering
Multimedia and mobile systems
Multi-agent systems
Personalization processes
Privacy and Security in Recommender Systems
Product recommendation
Recommendation algorithms
Recommender Systems Evaluation
Social networks
Targeted advertising
User modelling
User interfaces
Web browsing


Full paper submission deadline: Extended: June 9, 2014
Notification of acceptance: July 3, 2014
Camera-ready papers due: July 15, 2014
Conference: September 29-30, 2014 (Monday-Tuesday)
