Web2Touch 2020-2021

Semantic technologies for smart information sharing and web collaboration

Conference Track @ 29th IEEE WETICE Conference

Basque Coast - Bayonne, France, June 09-11, 2021


The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. After studying and evaluating the announcements, guidance, and news released by relevant national departments, we announce that 2020 edition of WETICE is postponed and will be co-located with WETICE 2021 in the same venue. However, the WETICE 2020 proceedings will be published in time. Only presentation of accepted papers will held at WETICE 2021.

Welcome to the 2020-2021 edition of Web2Touch Track!

Web2Touch (W2T), since its early days, is committed to bringing solutions for collaborative work using the Web. New advances in Web-based systems are the driver for changes in cooperative activities, such as risk and cybersystems management, or smart environments, where human activities are more and more performed via the internet and the Web. Web practitioners, users and applications exploit, in rapidly varying ways, the richness of the Web to support the user activities. Based on these considerations, the Web2Touch track tackles knowledge and data sharing based on software engineering, on artificial intelligence, and on methods for Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS) (e.g. ontologies, taxonomies, etc.). The focus of the track is on information creation, maintenance, disambiguation, interlinking, veracity and security. Reasoning and deep learning techniques are also considered, since these lead to better decisions or awareness of events. W2T deepens the concept of “working together” by exploring decision support assistance, collective intelligence, semantic search, smart environments, intentions-based analysis, and other collaborative-based ways for problem solving.

W2T aims at exploring the state-of-the-art on these topics and users' practical experiences, as well as trends and research, paving the way for future collaborative approaches to knowledge engineering and sharing.

Web2Touch Track - an open forum

The goal of the W2T Track is to provide a venue for researchers and practitioners within the field of Web collaboration, semantic web, and related areas, to share experiences, discuss challenges, and socialize opportunities. Web2Touch 2020 will provide an opportunity to learn how researchers and practitioners handle dynamic Web information, and to discuss the applicability and limitations of current and emerging approaches to Web-based knowledge sharing in different domains.
Web2Touch is an open forum for studies in multiple application domains including, for example, Web science, eHealth, eGov, eLearning, smart cooperative fruition of evolvable contents in smart cities, digital agriculture, and collaborative systems in general.
