2nd Workshop on Collective Intelligence in Semantic Web and Social Networks (CISWSN 2008)

Semantic web environment has been evolving. Its emerging environment is characterised by intensive collaboration, cooperation and knowledge processing activities with formation of complex social and economical networks in the background. Various knowledge processing techniques are being used to address data portability and Web information discovery problems. Collective intelligence is a key issue to collaboratively share knowledge and even generate new knowledge. Many Web 2.0 platforms (e.g., blogs and wikis) have been developed to exchange meaningful information and support user-centered tasks on a variety of domains (e.g., e-learning, e-commerce, and e-government). Local knowledge is annotated into a large repositories of content including not only simple documents but also multimedia data. For example, collaborative tagging (e.g., can play an important role in knowledge (or information) sharing between people on social networks. Modelling the dynamics and evolution of such complex systems, involving knowledge processing with intelligent information agents acting on behalf of thousands of users, is a new and promising research area with many practical applications.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners in areas of knowledge and intelligence, semantics, agents and grid computing to share their visions, research achievements and solutions, to resolve the challenge issues and to establish worldwide cooperative research and development. We also want to provide a platform for discussing research topics underlying the concepts of Social Semantics for Linked Data by contacting members of different communities that share the common interest on social semantic collaborative intelligence on the web for developing methods and tools: - Semantic Web researchers who use social semantic techniques for modeling collaboration and intelligence on the web. - Members of the Linked Open Data initiative who provide means for publishing and using linked open data on the web. - Members of the Intelligent Agent community who develop agents and algorithms for collaboration and intelligence on the web.

This will give an opportunity to push further the discussion upon the potential of social semantic collaborative intelligence across these communities.

Potential participants are invited to submit full papers, not exceeding 4 pages in length, using the IEEE Computer Society's 2-column conference proceedings format. The formatting instructions and author guidelines can be found at

The manuscripts should be submitted electronically using the WI-IAT 2008 Cyberchair electronic submission system. Each submission will be reviewed by at least two program committee members.


Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press that is indexed by EI. In addition, extended versions of selected papers may be published in chosen prospective journals or in an edited book (TBA):

  • International Journal of Intelligent Information and Database Systems
  • Journal of Universal Computer Science
  • International Journal of Virtual Communities and Social Networking

A number of papers will be selected to be published in a special issue of Computing and Informatics journal.
