After a successful First Doctoral Workshop held in conjunction
with 2008 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint Conference on Web
Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology in Sydney, we would
like to invite contributions to its second edition. This one-day
doctoral workshop will have a strong focus on Web Intelligence and
Intelligent Agent Technology, and covers some recent and trendy
topics and applications. During the Workshop, doctoral students will
be invited to share their current thesis work-in-progress with their
peers and with an international panel of academic staff.
The aims of the Doctoral Workshop include:
- To provide an opportunity for research/graduate students to interact closely with established researchers in their fields, receive feedback on their work and get advice on managing their careers.
- To present the ongoing doctoral projects and discuss possibilities of development for new ones.
- To provide a forum for interaction between students/young researchers from different countries and following different programmes. To stimulate interchange of ideas and knowledge between them in an attempt to broaden and enrich their pursuit for scientific excellence in the area of WI-IAT.
- To discuss on challenging problems and large projects in different countries, and potential commercial projects.
Much effort will be devoted to bringing together in one
place both rookie and experienced researchers, and to stimulating a
vivid discussion and exchange of ideas. Several established
researchers in the areas of WI and IAT will be invited to
participate and discuss with younger colleagues.
The workshop will consist of several presentations by contributing authors. The length and distribution of presentations will depend on number and topics of contributions. The organisers plan to provide sufficient amount of time for questions as well as formal and informal discussion.
The Workshop proceedings volume will be published by IEEE
Computer Society Press, to be indexed by EI. All accepted
contributions will be included in the
volume. Doctoral workshop has the same status as all other WI-IAT 2009 workshops.
Also, the authors of most interesting projects who already have results ready to publish may get the recommendation and support from members of Workshop Committee to submit their work to leading journals in the field.
The workshop will take place on September 15 (Tuesday) in the afternoon. The workshop will be organised in two sessions separated by a coffee break.
The workshop will take place in room 32 located on the First Floor of Building U6, Bicocca Campus, University of Milan-Bicocca.
