   HCI 2006: ENGAGE
   11-15 September 2006
   Queen Mary, University of London
   The 20th British HCI Group conference in co-operation with ACM.

- Engage in producing exciting papers about interaction
- Engage with the conference themes
- Engage and be engaged in a stimulating and exciting conference in
   London's East End

For the first time, the HCI conference is engaging with six core themes.
These themes capture some of the established favourite ideas in the
community as well as suggest new collaborations and approaches. The goal for
you as a submitter is to engage with one of the themes in rich and
unexpected ways. At the conference, we will be setting up discussions where
you will have the opportunity to challenge and be challenged on how you have
adopted the theme.

This year Volume 1 papers will printed as usual, and for the first time will
be published electronically with the cooperation of the ACM, see

In line with changes in our field, we are putting an emphasis on useful and
usable research. The British HCI conference is an international forum for
academics and practitioners interested in how people and technology work
together. We are making no distinction between practitioners and
researchers. So we say, ?Farewell, Industry Day? ? just come for the people

2nd CFPs: EACL2006 workshop on Adaptive Text Extraction and Mining (ATEM 2006)


EACL 2006 Workshop on
Adaptive Text Extraction and Mining (ATEM 2006)

April 4, 2006, Trento, Italy

Submission deadline: January 6, 2006

Submission form:

The EACL 2006 Workshop on Adaptive Text Extraction and Mining 
will be hosted in conjunction with the 11th Conference of the 
European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics 
that will take place April 3-7, 2006, in Trento, Italy.

Adaptive extraction and mining from texts is an active area of
research that lies at the intersection of diverse fields such as
information extraction, text mining, machine learning, data mining,
information  retrieval, and knowledge capture. As developments in
any of these fields have an immediate effect on the other ones, the
workshop's goal is to bring together researchers and practitioners
from these communities, so that they can discuss recent results and
foster new directions of research.  

January 6, 2006   - Deadline for workshop papers

cfp NRHM Special Issue on Knowledge Organization Systems and Services - reminder

Call for Papers for Special Issue of New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia
                      Knowledge Organization Systems and Services
Special issue Editors: Doug Tudhope and Marianne Lykke Nielsen
University of Glamorgan, UK and Royal School of Library and Information Science, Denmark
Submission deadline: January 16, 2006
Acceptance notification: February 27, 2006
Final manuscripts due: April 10, 2006
Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS), such as classification systems, gazetteers, lexical databases,
ontologies, taxonomies and thesauri, attempt to model the underlying semantic structure of a domain for
the purposes of retrieval. Traditionally the focus has been on construction of print-based resources.
Possibilities for networked KOS-based services are emerging but pose new challenges in today's
complex, interdisciplinary knowledge domains. This special issue invites contributions from
researchers and practitioners who are engaged in rethinking traditional approaches to design of KOS,
indexing services, cross-mapping, browsing, searching, personalisation, systems integration,
update and maintenance. 
This call builds on recent NKOS workshops at JCDL, ECDL and DC. More generally, we welcome submissions that
fit the scope of the call from all interested parties and communities. All submissions will be subject to
peer review. Advance indication of intent to submit is helpful.
The New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia is published by Taylor & Francis and appears in both print and
digital formats.  For more details and indicative topics, see the journal website and the full call for
