MOTIVATION & SCOPE

Web intelligence has sought to understand and predict Web behavior in order to improve a specific exogenous outcome such as the checkout of a shopping cart or improvement in meaningful search results. More interest is given now to understanding those behaviors themselves. For instance, it is of interest to understand individual and collective Web behaviors to further model and support knowledge extraction in applications such as cybersecurity, recommendation systems, and human computation systems. This proposed symposium on behavioral Web analytics aims to bring together artificial intelligence researchers from the machine learning & planning community, the cognitive science community, social computing community, and the human-centered computing community to develop a more meaningful understanding of individual and group behavior in online environments.

TOPICS

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

Characterization of Web behavior (for example, click rate, revisit rate, session length)

Categorization of Web behavior (for example, shopping, information seeking)

Modeling Web behavior including behavioral changes (computational models, tools and techniques)

Authentication/Identification (learning methodologies for attribution)

Inferring intent from Web behavior

Assessment of Web behavior (metrics for trustworthiness, influence)
