Dear Colleague you are invited to submit a paper at the Workshop on:

*Intelligent Analysis and Processing of Web News Content http://patterns.enm.bris.ac.uk/News-Content-Workshop *

*September 15, 2009*

at the Conferences

Web Intelligence (WI'09)<http://www.wi-iat09.disco.unimib.it/WI09/WIhome.htm> Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT'09)<http://www.wi-iat09.disco.unimib.it/IAT09/IAThome.htm>

The content of news outlets - increasingly available freely online - contains

information of immense scientific and commercial potential, as well as belonging to a very specific genre of textual data.

The content of news outlets is both a relatively focused domain, largely looking at the same set of events, and at the same time unstructured and open ended. The understanding and analysis of news content - be it text or speech, mono or multi lingual, etc - is a challenging and promising line of research, with its own specific features and character.

Various projects exist in this direction, aimed either at simple aggregation, or at translation, or summarisation, or content analysis of news. We will gather the scientific and technical community working on these applications to discuss scientific and technological aspects, lessons learnt, and open problems in this growing field, at the intersection of information extraction, machine learning, machine translation, pattern discovery, etc.

Technologies in this area span the entire domain of Pattern Analysis: from indexing to information extraction, from speech recognition to machine transla- tion, from pattern discovery to text generation and summarisation, to network patterns analysis. Besides connecting to user modelling and personalisation, the method also is a form of open source intelligence - see the applications to epidemic detection for example. The key goal of the meeting is the sharing of experiences, and the comparison of results solutions, and long term goals.
