Following the successful first Doctoral Workshop at WI-IAT'08 in
Sydney and second Workshop at WI-IAT'09 in Milan, we invite contributions to its
third 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 2010 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 in the room TEL 0015 in the Technology Enhanced Learning Building, Keele Campus of the York University.
The programme of the Workshop consists of five presentations arranged in two session that are scheduled in the morning of August 31.
Each presentation is assigned 30 minutes, including Q&A.
