o August 21, 2005: Workshop in Chicago, Illinois

Workshop Topics
WebKDD '05 calls for contributions related to data mining of Web log
data, site
information, document contents, web semantics, user records and
preferences, for

the exploitation of the mining results for user profiling, user
modeling and for

building intelligent Web applications. Web access patterns tend to be
very dynam
in nature, due not only to the dynamics of Web site content and
structure, but a
to changes in the user's interests, and thus their navigation
patterns. Furtherm
the inherent and increasing heterogeneity of the Web has required
applications to more effectively integrate a variety of types of data
across mul
channels and from different sources such as content, structure, and
more recentl
semantics. A focus on techniques and architectures for more effective
and mining of such multi-faceted data is likely to lead to the next
generation o
more useful and more intelligent applications. Emphasis will also be
placed on m
massive and evolving Web clickstreams within a stream mining
framework, and enha
Web usage mining using additional information channels. Interesting
s will
include the following subjects:

Web Usage Mining and Web Analytics:

- Web mining over dynamic and volatile Web sites
- Web mining over drifting usage and user data
- Modeling, understanding and explaining change in web usage
- Incorporating semantics into the analysis of the volatile Web
- Designing metrics for the volatile Web

Web content and structure mining:

- Wrapper generation and information extraction for volatile Web sites
- Adaptive Web content mining for Web documents and multimedia
- Extracting meta-information for a volatile Semantic Web
- Integration of Web content, usage, and structure data for Web mining

Enabling technologies:

- Mining evolving Web data streams
- Data warehousing (both web and non-web data)
- Data collection and preparation
- Multi-relational data mining applied to Web mining
- Scalable techniques for clustering Web data
- Data visualization techniques
- Knowledge Management in Web mining

Modeling users and usage:

- Generating and updating profiles from implicit or explicit user
- Discovering misuse and fraud
- Personalized taxonomies or ontologies (for individuals or user
- Alert and information filtering systems
- Cognitive models for Web navigation and e-commerce interactions


- Recommendation and personalization systems over a volatile Web
- Identifying communities in collaborative platforms, fora and
- Analyzing usage and user behavior in fora, marketplaces and portals
- Detecting patterns of malicious behavior and privacy threats
- Adaptability in site/user interaction
