Web Intelligence (WI) aims to achieve a multi-disciplinary balance
between research advances in theories and methods usually associated
with collective intelligence, data science, human-centric computing,
knowledge management, and network science. It is committed to
addressing research that both deepen the understanding of
computational, logical, cognitive, physical, and social foundations of
the future Web, and enable the development and application of
technologies based on Web intelligence.

The IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI) has
been held jointly with the IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on
Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT) since 2001 in Europe, North
America, and Asia Pacific. Starting from 2016, the IAT conference as
well as its themes and topics will be embedded inside WI. WI'16
features high-quality, original research papers and real-world
applications in all theoretical and technology areas that make up the
field of WI.

WI'16 will be co-located with the 2016 International Conference on
Brain Informatics & Health (BIH'16) (
Under our theme Connecting Network and Brain with Big Data, WI'16 and
BIH'16 will provide a broad forum that academia, professionals and
industry can use to exchange their ideas, findings and
strategies in utilizing the power of human brains and man-made
networks to create a better world. The attendees only need to
register for one of the 2 conferences, but they can attend all
sessions and social events of the 2 conferences.

WI'16 welcomes both research and application papers submissions.
All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality,
relevance, significance and clarity. Accepted full papers will be
included in the proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press.

Tutorial, Workshop and Special-Session proposals and
Industry/Demo-Track papers are also welcome.
