Web2Touch 2018

Semantic technologies in smart information sharing and web collaboration

Conference Track @ 27th IEEE WETICE Conference

Paris, June 27-29, 2018

Welcome to the 2018 edition of Web2Touch Track!

Web2Touch (W2T), since its early days, is committed to bringing solutions for collaborative work using the web. New advances in Web-based systems are the driver for changes in cooperative activities, risk facing, actions in cybersystems and in smart environments, where human activities are performed preferably via the internet and the Web. Web practitioners, users and applications exploit, in rapidly varying ways, the richness of the Web to support the user activities. Based on these considerations, the Web2Touch track tackles knowledge engineering based on software and artificial intelligence, and new methods for Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS) (e.g. ontologies, taxonomies, etc.), with a focus on information creation, maintenance, disambiguation and other techniques on the Web. Reasoning and deep learning techniques are also considered, since these lead to better decisions or awareness of events. W2T deepens the concept of working together by exploring themes including decision support assistance, collective intelligence, semantic search, smart environments, intentions-based analysis, and other collaborative-based ways for problem solving. W2T wants to explore the state-of-the-art on these topics, accommodating also users’ practical experiences as well as trends and research topics, paving the way for future collaborative approaches to knowledge engineering.

Web2Touch Track - an open forum

The goal of the W2T Track is to provide a venue for researchers and practitioners within the field of Web collaboration, semantic web, and related areas, to share experiences, discuss challenges, and socialize opportunities. Web2Touch 2018 will provide an opportunity to learn how researchers and practitioners handle dynamic Web information, and to discuss the applicability and limitations of current and emerging approaches to Web-based knowledge sharing in different domains.
Web2Touch is an open forum for studies in multiple application domains including, for example, Web science, eHealth, eGov, eLearning, smart cooperative fruition of evolvable contents in smart cities, digital agriculture, and collaborative systems in general.
