Aims and Scope

The 2-nd International Conference on Emerging Intelligent Data and Web
Technologies (EIDWT-2011) is dedicated to the dissemination of
original contributions that are related to the theories, practices and
concepts of emerging data technologies yet most importantly of their
applicability in business and academia towards a collective
intelligence approach. In particular, EIDWT-2011 will discuss advances
about utilizing and exploiting data generated from emerging data
technologies such as Data Centers, Data Grids, Clouds, Crowds,
Mashups, Social Networks and/or other Web 2.0 implementations towards
a collaborative and collective intelligence approach leading to
advancements of virtual organizations and their user communities. This
is because, current and future Web and Web 2.0 implementations will
store and continuously produce a vast amount of data, which if
combined and analyzed through a collective intelligence manner will
make a difference in the organizational settings and their user
communities. Thus, the scope of EIDWT-2011 is to discuss methods and
practices (including P2P) which bring various emerging data
technologies together to capture, integrate, analyze, mine, annotate
and visualize data - made available from various community users - in
a meaningful and collaborative for the organization manner. Finally,
EIDWT-2011 aims to provide a forum for original discussion and prompt
future directions in the area.


Papers should be focused on past, current and emerging methods and/or
use of data technologies with a particular focus to collective
intelligence. For example: Data Stream, Click stream, Cloud Computing,
Crowd Computing, Data Annotation, Data Architecture, Data Capture,
Data Clustering/Partitioning, Data Discovery/Management, Data Grids,
Data Integration, Data Management and Knowledge Engineering, Data
Mashups, Data Query Systems and Languages, Data Push/Notification,
Data Scheduling, Data/Text Mining, P2P, Reality Mining, Data
Visualization, Emerging Applications, Emerging/Enabling Collaborative
Data Technologies, Trust and Security, Web Science, Web 2.0, Ubiquitus
