Internet is a medium allowing services and information exchange in an open and decentralized environment, notably with numerous applications for virtual enterprises. It concerns enterprise information systems, local, regional and governmental organizations but it also involves more and more common users in the so-called web 2.0. The main stake is to use Internet as a technological support to communication, information exchange, service composition personalisation and access by all and anywhere. In this perspective, some work has been done these last years to combine classical techniques of information management with artificial intelligence technologies thus creating a new research domain called Web Intelligence. Research in Web Intelligence contributes to the development of algorithms, models and tools to handle the social and economic impact of the web usages.

The workshop will provide presentation and discussion opportunities for researchers working on web intelligence applied to collaborative networks, such as virtual enterprises and organizations. The possibilities and consequences of the web usage for collaborative networks are tremendous and new tools are required to satisfy users and service providers. Thus, Web Intelligence brings new research problems related to information and service access, quality of service, personalization, privacy preserving, trust as well as other issues.

The workshop Web Intelligence and Virtual Enterprises (VE) is specifically focused on "Social networks modelling, virtual communities, social intelligence"

The organization of the Web Intelligence & Virtual Enterprises workshop at PRO-VE'09 is supported by the Web Intelligence project from the French Rhône-Alpes regional cluster ISLE.
