Computational Intelligence and Data Mining - 6th international workshop

Within the 18th conference on Information Technologies - Applications and Theory, ITAT 2018, which will be held September 21–25 in Plejsy, in the lovely Slovak Ore Mountains, the 6th international workshop Computational Intelligence and Data Mining will be organized. We welcome contributions concerning all topics related to these two overlapping areas, in particular the following:

  • Learning, including metalearning and active learning
  • Artificial neural networks, including deep networks
  • Metaheuristics, including evolutionary algorithms and evolutionary optimization
  • Fuzzy systems, including fuzzy reasoning
  • Exploratory data analysis
  • Data mining based on machine learning and/or statistical methods
  • Statistical models, including distribution models, regression models and classifiers
  • Rules extraction from data
  • Analysis of time series or sequences
  • Applications of computational intelligence and data mining methods

Prospective authors are requested to prepare a 2-column paper of 5-8 pages length in English, according to the LaTeX class “itatnew” and to submit it using the EasyChair system. Each submitted paper will be reviewed by 3 members of the international program committee. All accepted papers will be published in ITAT proceedings (electronic and paper version), papers receiving the best evaluations by reviewers will be made publicly available through the frequently accessed CEUR Workshop Proceedings publication service (

SloNLP je slovenskočeský workshop speciálně zaměřený na zpracování přirozeného jazyka a počítačovou lingvistiku. Jeho hlavním cílem je podpořit spolupráci mezi výzkumníky v oblasti NLP v Česku a na Slovensku; k účasti proto vyzýváme i magisterské studenty a doktorandy věnující se počítačové lingvistice.

Mezi témata workshopu patří automatické rozpoznávání mluvené řeči (ASR), automatická analýza a generování přirozeného jazyka (morfologie, syntax, sémantika...), dialogové systémy (DS), strojový překlad (MT), vyhledávání informací (IR), praktické aplikace NLP technologií, a další témata počítačové lingvistiky.

“W3-ChaT” - WWW - Challenges and Trends

The W3-ChaT workshop is focused on addressing existing challenges we are facing today on the Web (and in general on Internet). Solution of such challenges are crucial to support/improve smooth experience of users with the Web as well their decision making. Web challenges are strongly associated with intelligent algorithms of various kind and purpose acting as clever solutions simplifying many tasks such that mining users’ data and relevant data sources with associated semantics, extracting users’ contexts and predicting their interests leading to improved data providers, user experience and semantics as proper knowledge representations.

Submissions can range from original research papers, work in progress, report on doctoral project and thesis to informative papers about current trends and also papers describing "what have I done/achieved last year/two". Basic assumption is that the paper is well informed about current challenges and trends in area of the Web (and Internet in general). We welcome if the paper describes a wider neighborhood of research (Use-case, benchmark data, models, methods, prototypes, metrics and experiments) although the contribution can concentrate only to some of these.

In particular, but not exclusively, we invite papers relevant with regard to the following areas and topics:

  • Web intelligence - e.g. recommender systems (approaches beyond matrix factorization, beyond RMSE,...), personalization, user models, online advertising, …
  • Web mining - e.g. information extraction, web mining, text mining, multimedia mining, …
  • Web semantics - e.g. semantic web, linked open data, annotations and metadata, …
  • Web user interfaces - e.g. web accessibility, UI/UX, …
  • Web security - e.g. fraud detection, ...
  • Other relevant topics - Big Data, NoSQL, Internet of Things, Similarity search, feature creation, indexing, distance, mental models, multimedia, …

In the W3-ChaT workshop, we follow the spirit of ITAT conference. ITAT - Information technologies - Applications and Theory is annual community meeting IT researchers and practitioners in neighborhood of Czecho-Slovakia. It is a "mountain version" of community meetings, the others are more oriented to urban venues.

The conference is a platform for both the exchange of results and experiences in CS community as well as informal meetings. Language of the conference is English. Special focus is on the results of young researchers and PhD students. W3-ChaT workshop is a domain restriction of these ideas.

Paper submission:' follow the ITAT author’s formatting instructions. All papers will be reviewed by at least two PC members. Accepted papers will be presented at workshop while papers in outstanding quality shall be consequently selected for publication in the proceedings of the conference.
