Text mining and web mining are interrelated fields that have attracted a lot of attention in recent years. Text mining focuses on analyzing large document collections and discovering interesting patterns and links hidden in text-based data. Web mining is concerned with the analysis and mining of all web-related data including web content (in which text constitutes a large portion), hyperlink structure, and web access and usage statistics. Because of the availability of large textual information in the electronic form and an evident lack of intelligent tools and techniques to process the data, there is a need for effective and efficient methods for information extraction, ontology building, document navigation/exploration, text analysis and visualization, intelligent search, information discovery, etc.

We hope this special session provides a snapshot of some of the latest advancement in the fields of text and web mining. The broader context of this session can be related in some respect to the areas of Data Mining, Machine Learning, Information Retrieval, Natural Language Processing, Social Networks Analysis and general Graph Theory. We invite contributions that advance the state-of-the-art in topics related to the purpose of this special session. : 

Particular topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Paper Submission and Presentation

Each submission should contain original, high quality work which has not been previously submitted or published elsewhere.
