Information Systems Security is one of the most pressing challenges facing all kinds of organizations today. Although many companies have discovered how critical information is to the success of their business or operations, very few have managed to be effective in maintaining their information secure, avoiding unauthorized access, preventing intrusions, stopping secret information disclosure, etc.

There are various definitions of security, but all of them basically agree on the same components. Security in information systems considers the protection of information and of the systems that manage it, against a wide range of threats in order to ensure business continuity, minimize risks and maximize the return on investment and business opportunities.

One of the most important recurrent problems in any enterprise is how to ensure the reliability and correctness of the core processes and systems the company relies on. This event focuses on the provision of methods and tools that can increase the level of confidence on Enterprise Information Systems (EIS).

9th International Workshop on
Natural Language Processing and Cognitive Science

The aim of this workshop is to foster interactions among researchers and practitioners in Natural Language Processing (NLP) by taking a Cognitive Science perspective.

What characterizes this kind of approach is the fact that NLP is considered from various viewpoints (linguistics, psychology, statistics, computer science, artificial intelligence), and that a deliberate effort is made to reconcile or integrate these viewpoints into a coherent whole.

We believe that this is necessary, as the modeling of the process is simply too complex to be addressed by a single discipline. No matter whether we deal with a natural system (people), an artificial system (computers) or a combination of both (interactive NLP), systems rely on many types of very different knowledge sources. Hence, strategies vary considerably depending on the person (novice, expert), on the available knowledge (internal and external), and on the nature of the information processor : man, machine or both (man-machine communication, interactive NLP).

This being so, any of the following aspects are welcomed : structure, representation and processing of information by different agents (natural, artificial or both) and in different communication modes.

1st International Workshop on
Web Intelligence
 - WEBI 2012


Web Intelligence (WI) has been recognized as a new direction for scientific research and development to explore the fundamental roles as well as practical impacts of Artificial Intelligence (AI) [E.g., knowledge representation, planning, knowledge discovery and data mining, intelligent agents, and social network intelligence) and advanced Information Technology (IT) [E.g., wireless networks, ubiquitous devices, social networks, semantic Web, wisdom Web, and data/knowledge grids) on the next generation of Web-empowered products, systems, services, and activities. It is one of the most important as well as promising IT research fields in the era of Web, agent intelligence and virtual communities.
The WEBI 2012 is a Workshop joint to ICEIS 2012. This first workshop edition provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to present results, applications, and experiences in Web Intelligence.

1st International Workshop on
Interaction Design in Educational Environments
 - IDEE 2012

During the last few years, new devices have been invading the pacific waters of educational environments. Different kind of tablets, laptops, whiteboards, mobile devices and other exciting computer systems have been introduced in classrooms together with the recurrent claim for which they help to improve the learning process in.
This workshop invites authors to submit contributions on concepts Distributed interaction Design Discussion, applications, techniques or environments where interaction design play a central role by improving the learning process at all levels.
