We are more and more surrounded by different kinds of networks, interconnected systems and vast amounts of interrelated data. Various web collaborative portals, blogs, wikis, video publishing services (youtube), ecommerce sites (eBay), social networking sites (Facebook) sensor networks, smart phones users exchanging multimedia as well as IT systems collaborating with one another in most organisations are good example of networks that require new adequate analytical methods.
The aim of the annual European Network Intelligence Conference (ENIC) is to create an open premier forum to exchange knowledge and experience as well as to discuss recent advances, theories, and techniques related to both various types of networks and intelligent analytical computational methods.
Every edition of the conference will focus on only few selected more specific scientific domains – tracks. The first event will include two such tracks: Social network and social media analysis, and Recommender Systems. The tracks will bring together the research groups from the specified disciplines, along with many of the e-commerce companies interested in applications of the intelligent tools in their products. The track will enable researchers and practitioners to present their latest research and identify challenges in recommendation systems. The special interest will be focused on the design cooperation platform for academia and industry.
Initially, the conference will be led and hosted by the ENGINE Centre and partnering organisations and substantially supported by the Seventh Framework Programme, however, we hope to create a wider active ENIC community for the future.
