Call for workshop proposals

2008 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology (WI-IAT’08)

The Workshop proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press, to be indexed by EI.

The Program Committees of the 2008 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology (WI-IAT’08) invite proposals for Workshops.

The workshop organizers will be responsible for advertising the workshop, forming the program committees, reviewing and selecting the papers, and guaranteeing a high quality worthy of the prestige and range of the Conference. All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the Workshop Proceedings, which are expected to be published by IEEE Computer Society Press and will be available at the workshops.

The workshop organizers will also have the discretion of editing selected papers (after their expansion and revision) into books or special journal issues. Workshops may be full-day or half-day. A full-day workshop should select 20-25 regular papers, while a half-day workshop should select 10-13 regular papers, from a large number of submissions. The workshop organizers should ensure the presence of authors of accepted papers at the workshops.

Workshop Topics

Each workshop subject will focus on new research challenges and initiatives in Web Intelligence (WI) and Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT). The workshops should provide an informal and vibrant forum for researchers and industry practitioners to share their research results and practical development experiences in these two fields. Suggested, but not limited to, workshop topics include:

Web Intelligence, Brain Informatics and Bio Technology
Intelligent E-Technology (including E-Science, E-Business, E-Learning, E-Finance, E-Government, E-Community)
Intelligent Web Interaction
Knowledge Grids and Grid Intelligence
Semantics and Ontology Engineering
Social Networks and Social Intelligence
Web Agents
Web Information Filtering and Retrieval
Web Mining and Forming
Web Personalization and Recommendations
Web Security, Integrity, Privacy and Trust
Web Services and Grid Services
Web Support Systems
World Wide Wisdom Web (W4)
Agent Systems Modeling and Methodology
Autonomous Knowledge and Information Agents
Autonomous Auctions and Negotiation
Autonomy-Oriented Computing (AOC)
Learning and Self-Adapting Agents
Agents and Data Mining Interaction
Multiagent Systems in E-business


Workshop Proposal Submission

Workshop proposals should include the following elements:

Title of the workshop
The organizers name, affiliation, mailing address and e-mail address
A description of the topic of the workshop (not exceeding 200 words)
Type of the workshop (full-day or half-day)
A description of how the workshop will contribute to the field of Web Intelligence and/or Intelligent Agent Technology
A short description on how the workshop will be advertised so as to ensure a sufficiently wide range of authors and high quality papers


After the acceptation of a workshop proposal the organizer(s) should:

Create a “Call for papers/participation” for the workshop
Create a Web page for the workshop, the link of which will be published on the Conference Web site
Create a Board of Reviewers (Program Committee)
Review and select papers
Schedule the workshop activities


Those papers selected by a workshop organizer will also be reviewed by the Workshop Co-Chairs for final acceptance.

All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity.

We will provide an online paper submission and review system to support the workshops.

Please submit your Proposals to both Workshop Co-Chairs by emails.
