                          Call for Papers
     International Workshop on BioMedicine applications of Web Technologies
                 in conjunction with WI/IAT 2007 
            Silicon Valley, CA, USA, November 2-5, 2007

Topics of the workshop
BMWT 2007 will be part of events of the WI-IAT conference and will be arranged for a date 

during November 2-5. This workshop will cover interesting topics of applications of 

intelligent Web technologies in bio-medicine, including Web Ontology, Semantic Web, Web 

Usage Mining, Web Search and Intelligent Agents. Original contributions will be solicited in 

the following subjects (but not necessarily limited to):

    * Web information extraction and wrapper generation
    * Applications of Web taxonomies and ontologies in bio-medicine
    * Web-based service-oriented architecture in bio-medicine
    * Integration and maintenance of bio-medicine taxonomies and ontologies
    * Web content and structure mining , Web Information retrieval and filtering
    * Web-based data collection, curation and analysis
    * Text mining for metadata creation
    * Multimedia contents in bio-medicine on the Web
    * Web search engines, meta-search engines and inference engine
    * Semantic Web
    * Intelligent Web agents
    * Knowledge community formation and support

This workshop intends to bring together researchers and practitioners to foster the exchange 

of ideas and the dissemination of emerging techniques on intelligent Web technology in bio-

medicine applications. The workshop will capture current important developments of new 

models, new methodologies and new tools for building a variety of embodiments of scalable, 

effective and intelligent Web-based information systems for the ever-increasing needs of 

bio-medicine applications.

Type of workshop
The workshop will run as a half-day workshop for approximately 5 hours with 1~2 keynote 

speeches and 8~12 paper presentations.
