Special Session on Accessing, Structuring, Analyzing and Adapting
Information in Web 2.0 at the 3th IEEE International Conference on Human
System Interaction - HSI 2010 Rzeszow, Poland from 13-15 May 2010


This special session aims at discussing the state-of-the-art, open
problems, challenges and innovative research approaches in accessing,
structuring, analysing and adapting information for and from Web 2.0; it
provides a forum both for proposing innovative and open models,
applications and new data sharing scenarios, as well as novel
technologies and methodologies for creating and managing these applications.

This special session is second in the series, following the successful
session of last year.


Social networking sites, wikis and folksonomies, and, more in general,
UGC (User- Generated Content) represent the second generation of
Web-based communities and generate a meaningful portion of the Web
traffic and the content generation.

The Web 2.0, also known as Social Web, is characterized by active
participation and interaction of users that become Web's authors and can
directly create, express themselves and communicate.

Open issues include the modalities of structuring information in
opportune concept spaces in order to simplify the access and the
analysis of contents; the complexity in visualizing the networks of
connections and in analyzing and managing an open corpus of documents;
the difficulty in measuring information trust and quality; the lacking
of adaptation and personalization; the flatness of folksonomies; an
effective design of new digital archives; the interaction in the Web
communities; the role of tags for personalizing recommendations and
information retrieval.

Examples of stimulating application fields are publication sharing
systems, social bookmarking environments, or, more in general, digital
