#######################################################################

The Program Committee of the 2016 IEEE/WIC/ACM International
Conference on Web Intelligence (WI'16) invites proposals for
workshops/special-sessions in all areas related to Web Intelligence,
its foundations and applications. WI'16 will be collocated with
another top-quality international conference: Brain Informatics &
Heath 2016 (BIH'16, http://wibih.unomaha.edu/bih), in order to bring
together researchers and practitioners from diverse fields with the
purpose of exploring the fundamental roles, interactions and practical
impacts of Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Information
Technology, in particular, how to connect network and brain with big
data. The workshops/special sessions will be held at Hilton Omaha on
October 13th, 2016.

The main objectives of the WI'16 workshops/special-sessions are to
stimulate and facilitate active exchange, interaction and comparison
of approaches, methods and related to diverse areas of Web
Intelligence. Each workshop/special session subject will focus on new
and emerging research challenges related to the themes of the
conference. The workshops/special-sessions should provide an informal
and vibrant forum for researchers and industry practitioners to share
their research results and practical development experiences in the
field. The aim of the workshops/special sessions should be to provide
the participants with an opportunity to discuss specific technical
topics in an atmosphere that fosters active exchange of
ideas. Workshops/special sessions can typically focus on topics
aligned to or specified in general call for contributions but may not
be restricted to those. All areas focusing on theoretical and applied
aspects of Web Intelligence are welcome.

IMPORTANT DATES
+++++++++++++++

Workshop/Special Session Proposal submission: March 20, 2016
Proposal acceptance notifications: April 3, 2016
Workshop/Special Session Paper submission: June 1, 2016
Paper acceptance notifications: June 25, 2016

+++++++++++++++++
WORKSHOP SETTINGS
+++++++++++++++++

Workshops may be full-day or half-day. A full-day workshop should
select 10-14 regular papers, while a half-day workshop should select
5-7 regular papers, from a large number of submissions. Special
sessions, on the other hand, should select 4-6 regular papers.
Submissions accepted as workshop/special session papers will be
allocated 4 pages in the IEEE WI-IAT 2016 workshop proceedings to be
published by IEEE-CS Press.

The workshop organizers should ensure the presence of authors of
accepted papers at the workshops. Optionally, the workshop may be
started or concluded by a panel focusing on interesting aspects,
controversial issues, or unsolved problems to stimulate lively,
thoughtful, and thought-provoking debate; we expect the workshop
organizers to actively engage the audience and help them gain a deeper
understanding of the issues. The goal of a panel is to debate and thus
panels should always reflect more than one point of view.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
WORKSHOP/SPECIAL SESSION PROPOSAL SUBMISSIONS
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Workshop organizers should submit their proposals to one of workshop
chairs. All workshop/special-session proposals should be submitted as
a single pdf file and include the following information:

* Title of the workshop/special-session
* Names of workshop/special-session organizers,
affiliation, mailing address and e-mail address
* Short CV of organizers
* A description of the topics of the workshop/special-session
(not exceeding 200 words)
* For the workshop: type of the workshop (full-day or half-day)
* A description of how the workshop/special-session will contribute
to the field of Web Intelligence
* A short description on how the workshop/special-session will be advertised so
as to ensure a sufficiently wide range of authors and high quality papers
* Information about previous offerings of the proposed workshop/special-session.
* A list of potential Program Committee members and attendees/submissions
and/or a justification of the expected attendees and submissions.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
WORKSHOP/SPECIAL SESSION ORGANIZATION
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Organizers, whose proposals are accepted, will be responsible for
advertising the workshop/special-session, forming the program
committees, reviewing and selecting the papers, all along guaranteeing
high quality worthy of the prestige and range of the conference. The
conference will provide an online paper submission and review system
to support the workshops. After the acceptance of a workshop proposal
the organizer(s) should:

* Create a "Call for Papers/Participation" for the workshop/special-session
* Create a webpage for the workshop/special-session, the link of which will
be published on the conference website
* Create a Board of Reviewers (Program Committee)
* Review and select papers
* Schedule the workshop/special-session program

The papers selected by workshop/special-session organizers will also
be reviewed by the workshop/special-session chairs for final
acceptance. All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of
technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity. The
organizers will also have the discretion of editing selected papers
(after their expansion and revision) into books or journal special
issues.

++++++++++++
REGISTRATION
++++++++++++

Workshop/special session paper registration fees are the same as
regular conference fees. All registered participants are entitled to
attend all keynotes, sessions, workshops, panels, tutorials and social
events. Workshop/special-session organizers will receive one
