1st International Workshop
"EVENTS 2010 - Recognising and tracking events on the Web and in real life"
Hosted by: The 6th Hellenic Conference on Artificial Intelligence (SETN 
Athens, Greece, May 4, 2010

Users and organizations collect data in various structured and 
unstructured digital formats, but they cannot fully utilize these data 
to support content and resource management process. It is evident that 
the analysis and interpretation of the available data needs to be 
automated, in order for large data volumes to be transformed into 
operational knowledge. Events are particularly important pieces of 
knowledge, as they represent activities of special significance both for 
users and organisations. Therefore, the recognition of events is of 
outmost importance. Consider, for example, automatic event (e.g. 
emergencies) and trend detection by analysing users contributions to 
social Web 2.0 applications, the recognition of attacks on nodes of a 
computer network given the exchanged TCP/IP messages, the recognition of 
suspicious trader behaviour given the transactions in a financial 
market, and the recognition of various types of cardiac arrhythmia given 
electrocardiographs. We welcome papers focusing on various aspects of 
event recognition, including analysis of video, audio, text and other 
sensor data, as well as recognition on fused data sources and temporal 
reasoning systems. While the workshop places emphasis on theoretical 
contributions, we also welcome papers describing interesting applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Representation languages for event recognition
* Algorithms for real-time event recognition
* Probabilistic reasoning for event recognition
* Machine learning for event recognition
* Event-driven architectures
* Benchmarks, performance evaluations, and testbeds
* Domain-specific deployments of event-based systems
* Multimedia and social content analysis for event detection
* Clustering, concept detection and multi-modal/fusion techniques
* Retrieval of events
* User interaction and interfaces for events navigation, browsing and 

Important Dates
* Submission of papers: March 12, 2010
* Notification of acceptance: April 10, 2010
* Submission of camera-ready papers: April 24, 2010
* Workshop: 4 May 2010

We welcome submissions of up to 15 pages in length. Submissions should 
be formatted in Springer LNCS format 
(http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) and submitted through 
https://www.easychair.org/login.cgi?conf=events20100 Easychair 
Submission Site. Publisher for proceedings and journal for a special 
issue with selected papers will be announced soon.
