WI 2008 : IEEE/WIC/ACM Web Intelligence
Conference Series : Web Intelligence
Call For Papers
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, 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 and agent intelligence.
The 2008 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence(WI'08) (WI-08) will be jointly held with the 2008 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT-08). The IEEE/WIC/ACM 2008 joint conferences are sponsored and organized by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Computational Intelligence (TCCI) (http://www.cs.uvm.edu/~xwu/tcci/index.shtml), Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC) (http://wi-consortium.org), and ACM-SIGART (http://www.acm.org/sigart/). The two conferences will have a joint opening, keynote, reception, and banquet. Attendees only need to register for one conference and can attend workshops, sessions and tutorials across the two conferences. We are also planning a joint panel and joint paper sessions that discuss common problems in the two areas.
The topics and areas include, but not limited to:
World Wide Wisdom Web (W4)
New Social Interaction Paradigms
Knowledge Community Formation and Support
Knowledge Grids and Grid Intelligence
Web Mining and Farming
Semantics and Ontology Engineering
Web Information Filtering and Retrieval
Intelligent Human-Web Interaction
Web Support Systems

On-Line Submissions and Publication
High-quality papers in all WI related areas are solicited. Papers exploring new directions or areas will receive a careful and supportive review. All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity.
Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 7 pages in the IEEE 2-column format (see the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines at http://www.computer.org/portal/pages/ieeecs/publications), and will be reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance to data mining, originality, significance, and clarity. Please use the Submission Form on the WI'08 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.
All co-authors will be notified at all time, for the submission, notification, and confirmation on the attendance. Submitting a paper to the conference and workshops means that, if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the conference to present the paper. The acceptance list and no-show list will be openly published on-line. For no-show authors, their affiliations will receive a notification.
A selected number of WI'08/IAT'08 accepted papers will be expanded and revised for inclusion in Web Intelligence and Agent Systems: An International Journal (http://wi-consortium.org/journal.html) and in Annual Review of Intelligent Informatics (http://www.wi-consortium.org/annual.html)
The best paper awards will be conferred at the conference on the authors of (1) the best research paper and (2) the best application paper. Application-oriented submissions will be considered for the best application paper award.
The full author list and paper title will be announced on the Web Intelligence Consortium homepage: http://wi-consortium.org/html/wicawards.html
More detailed instructions and the On-Line Submission Form can be found from the WI'08 homepage: http://datamining.it.uts.edu.au/wi08/html/wi/?index=about.
Industry / Demo-Track
We solicit Industry/Demo-Track papers by the following methods:
1. Industry papers of 4 pages can be submitted on the same schedule as the research track.
2. Separate 2-page demo proposals can be submitted at a later schedule.
3. Full regular paper submissions can include a demo option. That is, a full paper submissions will be asked to specify if they would like to give a demonstration; choice of demonstrations (while utilizing information from the regular reviewing process) will be selected based on value as a demonstration.
For options 1) and 2), please find more detailed instructions at:
* http://datamining.it.uts.edu.au/wi08/html/wi/?index=demo for WI'08, and
* http://datamining.it.uts.edu.au/wi08/html/iat/?index=demo for IAT'08.
As an important part of the conference, the workshop program will focus on new research challenges and initiatives. All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the Workshop Proceedings, which are expected to be published by IEEE Computer Society Press and indexed by EI, will be available at the workshops. Detailed information is available at the conference homepage.
Note: we will not have a separate workshop registration fee this year (i.e., conference registration covers everything).
WI'08 will include tutorials providing in-depth background on subjects that are of broad interest to the Web intelligence community. Both short (2 hours) and long (half day) tutorials will be considered. The tutorials will be part of the main conference technical program. Detailed information is available at the conference homepage.
Note: we will not have a separate tutorials registration fee this year (i.e., only one conference registration covers everything).
