KDWEB 2015

1st International Workshop on Knowledge Discovery on the WEB

3-5 September, 2015, Cagliari, Italy

Call for Papers
Nowadays data are continuously created, even if we never notice it is happening. With the increasing availability of data, novel tools and systems able to provide effective means of searching and retrieving information are required. KDWeb 2015 is aimed at providing a venue to researchers, scientists, students, and practitioners involved in the fields of Knowledge Discovery on Data Mining, Information Retrieval, and Semantic Web, for presenting and discussing novel and emerging ideas.
KDWeb will contribute to discuss and compare suitable novel solutions based on intelligent techniques and applied in real-world applications.
We particularly encourage to submit abstracts and papers focused on the fields of hierarchical text categorization and taxonomy building and assessment.

Submissions deadline (papers, demo, and posters): July 22, 2015
Notifications of acceptance: August 10, 2015
Camera ready submissions: August 31, 2015


Authors should submit an original paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, using the on-line submission procedure through EasyChair system ( Authors could submit either regular papers, demo, or poster papers.
