Papers from the AAAI Workshop
Mark Dredze, Vitor R. Carvalho, and Tessa Lau, Cochairs
With the rise of the digital workplace, e-mail has become a ubiquitous tool in the office and a primary means of communication. e-mail's growth has created new opportunities and challenges for a large variety of artificial intelligence research, focusing an increasing amount of academic and industrial research on e-mail issues. Research seeks to enhance the e-mail user experience by addressing e-mail overload or to learn from e-mail social patterns. Recent papers have dealt with e-mail triage, activity management, e-mail prioritization, summarization, topic tracking, sorting, leak detection, social network analysis, and enhanced intelligent interfaces. The Enhanced Messaging workshop at AAAI 2008 brought together researchers working on solutions for e-mail and other forms of web messaging from many subfields of AI as well as soliciting participation from the broader community.
