Call For Papers

WI 2011 provides a leading international forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from diverse fields, to increase the cross-fertilization of ideas and explore the fundamental roles, interactions as well as practical impacts of Artificial Intelligence engineering and Advanced Information Technology on the next generation of Web systems.
Here AI-engineering is a general term that refers to a new area, slightly beyond traditional AI: brain informatics, human level AI, intelligent agents, social network intelligence and classical areas, such as knowledge engineering, knowledge representation, planning, knowledge discovery and data mining are examples. Advanced Information Technology includes wireless networks, ubiquitous devices, social networks, data/knowledge grids, as well as service oriented architecture, cloud computing.
Web Intelligence has been recognized as one of the most important as well as promising direction for scientific research and development in the era of Web and agent intelligence to bring in the next generation Web systems.
WI 2011 will be jointly held with the 2011 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT 2011).
The two conferences will have a joint opening, keynotes, reception and banquet.
WI-IAT 2011 will include a summer school providing in-depth background on subjects that are of broad interest to Web intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology communities. It will also include workshops and an industry day. The workshop and the industry day programs will focus on new research challenges, initiatives and applications.
All papers accepted for workshops and industry day will be included in the Workshop and industry day Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press and will be available on site.

On-Line Submissions and Publication
High-quality papers in all WI related areas are solicited.
Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 8 pages in the IEEE 2-column format.
The same format will be used for final camera-ready papers (see the Author Guidelines at
All submitted papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity.
Note that WI 2011 will accept ONLY on-line submissions in PDF format. Please use the Submission Form on the WI-IAT 2011 website to submit your paper. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press that is indexed by EI.
