CFP: International Workshop on Web Mining and Information Retrieval (WMIR2010)

International Workshop on Web Mining and Information Retrieval (WMIR2010)
Under the framework of the 10th International Conference on Intelligent Systems, Design and Applications, ISDA'10
November 29 - December 1, 2010, Cairo, Egypt

Introduction:

Over last two decades, web has grown from being a mostly text based medium for disseminating information to play an important role in all facets of our lives. Some of the exciting developments in recent years include ubiquitous e-commerce, explosion of multimedia that rivals radio and television, and social networking. This workshop aims to bring together researchers that are responding to these new developments with the application of data, text, and multimedia mining tools to solve the latest and forthcoming problems posed by the world wide web.
