The Journal of Web Semantics will publish a special issue on Data Mining and Social Network Analysis for integrating Semantic Web and Web 2.0 in the spring of 2010. The special issue will be edited by Bettina Berendt, Andreas Hotho and Gerd Stumme and initial abstracts for papers must be submitted via the Elsevier EES system by September 21, 2009.

The special issue, invites contributions that show how synergies between Semantic Web and Web 2.0 techniques can be successfully used. Since both communities work on network-like data structures, analysis methods from different fields of research could form a link between those communities. Techniques can be – but are not limited to – social network analysis, graph analysis, machine learning and data mining methods.

Relevant topics include

  • ontology learning from Web 2.0 data
  • instance extraction from Web 2.0 systems
  • analysis of Blogs
  • discovering social structures and communities
  • predicting trends and user behaviour
  • analysis of dynamic networks
  • using content of the Web for modelling
  • discovering misuse and fraud
  • network analysis of social resource sharing systems
  • analysis of folksonomies and other Web 2.0 data structures
  • analysis of Web 2.0 applications and their data
  • deriving profiles from usage
  • personalized delivery of news and journals
  • Semantic Web personalization
  • Semantic Web technologies for recommender systems
  • ubiquitous data mining in Web (2.0) environment
  • applications
