Conference and Workshop on Text Mining Services – TMS, Leipzig 2009

*Workshop: 24-25.3.2009*

*Student Day: 23.3.2009*

*Submission of workshop papers: 20.11.08*

*Author notification: 20.12.2008*

*Publication ready version: 2.2.2009*

*Keynote by Stefan Wrobel, Fraunhofer IAIS, St. Augustin/Bonn*

A necessary precondition for High Tech Services is a systematic and structured acquisition, generation, processing, administration, presentation, reuse, and publication of /contents/. Content services make available the resources and programs needed for that. Public digital text and data resources are linked together and made accessible by common standards. New software architectures integrate digital resources and processing tools like text and data mining to develop new and better content for specific applications.

Text and content mining is of central importance for internet based media services and intelligent search services. These services will be standard for next generation portals. They also form the basis of the so-called E-Humanities. Text Mining services already are of commercial interest for the media and publishing houses, for on-line and off-line journalism, quality analysis and assurance in industries, patent and technology mining, trend mining and trend management, and media and marketing analysis.

The workshop will address and discuss urging research issues and approaches for text mining services as part of the SABRE multi conference focusing on services science in cooperation with the Department of Computer Science <http://www.informatik.uni-leipzig.de/idxeng.html> and the Information Systems Institute <http://www.iwi.uni-leipzig.de/startseite-en?set_language=en&cl=en> as well as the Historisches Seminar <http://www.uni-leipzig.de/histsem/116.html> of the University of Leipzig, University of Applied Science Leipzig <http://www.htwk-leipzig.de/> and the Leipzig Graduate School of Managment (HHL) <http://www.hhl.de/>, together with the German government funded research projects eAQUA (http://www.eaqua.net/), D-SPIN (http://www.sfs.uni-tuebingen.de/dspin/index.shtml), Topic Maps 2.0 Lab (http://www.topicmapslab.de/), and the EU funded project CLARIN (http://www.clarin.eu/). The up-to-date state of the art in text mining services will be presented and discussed amongst representatives both from research and industry as well as different scientific disciplines.


The topics of TMS 2009 include but are not limited to:

- Survey of text mining services and related projects

- Design and engineering of text mining services

- Basic text mining services technologies and architectures

- Language resources and text mining services

- Use of text mining services in the E-Humanities

- Industrialization and standardization of text mining services

- Customer integration in design, delivery and operation

- Business models for text mining services (e.g. pricing, revenue strategies, organization)

- Management and customization of text mining services

- Legal aspects (e.g. assets, intellectual property building, property rights, branding)

TMS 2009 seeks two types of contributions

- Full research papers (english) 10 pages

- Application and development experience papers (industry, E-Humanities) 6 pages

All submitted papers will undergo a rigorous double blind peer review process. Author’s names and addresses must NOT appear in the head of the submitted paper, and self-reference should be in the third person. Preceding the text on the first page only the title of the contribution should be shown without specifying the author(s) and his/their affiliation.

Papers will be selected based on originality, quality, soundness, and relevance. All contributions must be original, not published, accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere.

*Please submit your paper until 20th November, 2008, in electronic form under the conference management system*

Publication of accepted contributions

All papers (full research papers, application and development papers) will be published as part of a Institute of Applied Informatics (InfAI e.V.) publication series published by Logos.

Selected best papers will be invited to create extended versions for submission to a special issue of an international journal (e.g. Language Technology).
