The program included the following fifteen workshops: Advancements in POMDP Solvers, AI Education Workshop, Coordination, Organization, Institutions and Norms in Agent Systems, Enhanced Messaging, Human Implications of Human-Robot Interaction, Intelligent Techniques for Web Personalization and Recommender Systems, Metareasoning: Thinking about Thinking, Multidisciplinary Workshop on Advances in Preference Handling, Search in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, Spatial and Temporal Reasoning, Trading Agent Design and Analysis, Transfer Learning for Complex Tasks, What Went Wrong and Why: Lessons from AI Research and Applications, and Wikipedia and Artificial Intelligence: An Evolving Synergy. The goal of the Coordination, Organizations, Institutions and Norms in Multiagent Systems workshop was to examine and define the current state of the art research in agent systems research related to coordination, organizations institutions and norming. The Intelligent Techniques for Web Personalization and Recommender Systems workshop was scheduled as a joint event, bringing together researchers and practitioners from the fields of web personalization and recommender systems. The Search in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics workshop brought together search researchers to share their ideas and disseminate their latest research results.
Over the last few years, a number of areas of natural language processing have begun applying graph-based techniques. These include, among others, text summarization, syntactic parsing, word-sense disambiguation, ontology construction, sentiment and subjectivity analysis, and text clustering. In this paper, we present some of the most successful graph-based representations and algorithms used in language processing and try to explain how and why they work.
