We continue our collaboration on clustering and web usage mining with F.A.T. De Carvalho from Federal University of Pernambuco (Recife) and his team.


Y. Lechevallier pursued his collaboration with A. Ciampi (Univ of McGill, Montréal).


Marie-Aude Aufaure collaborates with Yanwu Yang, Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Science, Beijing, on user modelling for the semantic web [105] and Yves Lechevallier collaborates with Hueiwen Wang, BUAA, Beijing on clustering methods.


The project (duration of 4 years) with Casablanca University and ENSAM (Meknes) about the WRUM proposal (Web Redesign based on Usage Mining) has been accepted in may 2008 and received a financing from Morocco Telecom. In this project, AxiS will have to use multi-sites log analysis to redesign Web sites. The project hasn't started this year.


We maintained our contacts with the Computer Science department of the West University of Timisoara (Prof Viorel Negru), in particular via the SYNASC conference every year. B. Trousse discussed with V. Negru about future collaborations at ICT conference (Lyon) in november 2008.


Marie-Aude Aufaure and Yves Lechevallier are involved in co-supervision of 4 masters in the context of the STIC Tunisie and/or 2 thesis (Riadi Lab, ENSI Tunis) and participated as invited speakers [22] , [24] in the workshop Ecol'IA08 "Apprentissage et fouille de données : de la théorie à la pratique" at Hammamet (Tunisie) during march 2008. These masters and thesis subjects are about web mining (usage, content and structure, using different methods) and ontology construction from heterogeneous sources [48] , [68] , [39] , [30] , [15] .
