*** About WIMS'18 Conference

WIMS is a series of peer-reviewed International Computer Science conferences. It is a forum for researchers and practitioners to present their state-of-the-art results in building Intelligent Web, to examine performance characteristics of various approaches in Web-based intelligent information technology, and to cross-fertilize their ideas on the development of Web-based intelligent information management solutions across different domains.

*** Important Dates

January 25, 2018 Paper submission
January 20, 2018 Submission of tutorial and workshop proposals
January 30, 2018 Notification of acceptance for tutorials and workshops
March 20, 2018 Notification of acceptance for papers/posters
April 25, 2018 Camera-ready versions of accepted papers, posters, tutorial papers
April 25, 2018 Author registration and registration fee payment deadline
June 25-27, 2018 Conference

*** Objectives

The purpose of the WIMS series is:
- To provide a forum for established researchers and practitioners to present their contributions to the state of the art research and development in Web technology and applications
- To give doctoral students an opportunity to present their research to a friendly and knowledgeable audience and receive valuable feedback
- To provide an informal social event where Web technology researchers and practitioners can meet

WIMS traditionally hosts a small number of short tutorials on the topics related to the scope of the conference series. The role of a WIMS tutorial is to be a theme oriented comprehensive survey. WIMS also offers its infrastructure and facilities for the organizers of satellite workshops that complement the scope of the conference.

The calls for WIMS'2018 Tutorials and Workshops are published separately.

Companies or individuals interested in presenting their industrial products or methodologies are invited to contact the conference chairs.
