A Special Issue in the 
    Journal of Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery (DMKD 2010)

Call for Papers

The Web has changed our way of living, doing business, exchanging information, establishing and maintaining social contacts. Scientists are investigating the phenomenon of the Web from different perspectives. Scholars in knowledge discovery and data mining have turned their attention towards the Web, almost as soon as people started using the Web for a variety of private and business activities. The analysis of human behavior in the Web and the support of knowledge extraction and information acquisition have been the topic of conferences and workshops for over a decade. Among them the WEBKDD workshop, organized since 1999 under the auspices of the ACM SIGKDD international conference on knowledge discovery and data mining, has served in establishing a community of Web miners, identifying the challenges of the practitioners and promoting innovative research solutions. About 10 years after this first workshop on mining the Web, we take a fresh look on research achievements and challenges ahead: we invite contributions that combine a retrospection of the achievements in the last decade with an in-depth discussion of current trends and new open problems for the next decade. We solicit both surveys with a strong visionary portion, and visionary works that build upon a solid methodological groundwork. Topics include but are not limited to:

    * web analytics
    * web search
    * recommender systems
    * personalization user modeling
    * online communities social web mining
    * Semantic Web
    * computational social science
    * mining from virtual worlds and games
