You are invited to submit a workshop/special-session proposal as part of the WI '19 conference

The 18th Web Intelligence conference (WI '19) will be held in Thessaloniki (Greece) during 14th to 17th of October 2019. Its organizing committee invites proposals for workshops/special sessions to be held in conjunction with the conference. The goals of the workshops are to explore emerging research topics and to provide a forum for authors to present early research results on these topics. We would like to have a number of workshops, with a high quality program dominated by contributed papers. We expect that workshops will run a rigorous review process, to make sure programs will be of high-quality. Organizers may structure workshops/tutorials as they see fit, possibly including invited talks, panel discussions, presentations of work in progress, peer-reviewed papers, demonstrations, or some combination.
