 International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics
(WIMS'11) <http://wims.vestforsk.no/index.html>

Sogndal, Norway (May 25-27, 2011)
http://wims.vestforsk.no


The WIMS'11  call for papers got a tremendous response. Thanks for your
support. Now, the conference program committee would like to invite
proposals and/or abstracts for the following 3 new calls.



*Call for Breaking News - Abstracts *

The WIMS'11 program will feature several invited talks, peer-reviewed
contributed talks, tutorials , workshops  and posters. However, in addition,
as an innovation for WIMSí11, some time at the conference will be set aside
for late "breaking news" posters submitted on the basis of a two-page
abstract. These posters may report on

   - ongoing or unpublished projects
   - projects already completed elsewhere
   - partially developed ideas
   - negative results etc.

and are meant as informal forum to encourage discussion.   Abstracts should
summarize and highlight why the projects will be of interest to the WIMS
community.  Submitted two-page abstracts will be peer reviewed and
presentation of these at the Conference will lead to publication in the
WIMSí11 Proceedings.


Abstracts on all aspects of Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics are
strongly encouraged, including but not limited to:

   - Semantics-driven Information Retrieval
   - Semantic Agent Systems
   - Semantic Data Search
   - Interaction Paradigms for Semantic Search
   - Evaluation of Semantic Search
   - User Interfaces
   - Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
   - Web Mining
   - Ontology Mining and Knowledge Discovery in Knowledge Bases
   - Ubiquitous Computing
   - Semantic Deep Web and Intelligent e-Technology
   - Representation Techniques for Web-based knowledge
   - Quality of Life Technology for Web Document Access
   - Rule markup languages and systems
   - Machine Learning & Knowledge Discovery
   - Semantic 3D media and content
   - Optimization-based Data Mining and Web Intelligence
   - Web Personalization and Recommender Systems
   - Social Search and Web Logs Analysis
   - Opinion Mining for Business Intelligence
   - Natural Language Processing and Web Intelligence
   - Intelligent Web Interaction
   - Service-Oriented Intelligence
   - Collaborative Agents
   - Human-Oriented Knowledge
   - Scalability vs. expressivity of reasoning on the Web

Award
*The best breaking news poster from all submissions will be determined by
the PC and a Best 'Breaking News' Award will be presented at the conference.


*How to submit*

The length of breaking news abstract is  2 pages in ACM format.

Please note that the submission format is MS Word or PDF. The two-page
abstracts must be written in English and formatted according to the ACM
guidelines. Author instructions and style files can be downloaded at

Authors of accepted abstracts are expected to attend the conference and
present their work. Selected extended abstracts will be invited to appear in
a special issues of reputed journals in the field. Submissions will be
considered if they are received by 23:59, *March 1st  2011*, Universal Time
(Greenwich Mean Time).

*Breaking news abstracts must be sent to*  Chair, Program Committee (E-mail:
wims11@vestforsk.no)

 *Call for Workshop Proposals *

The WIMS'11 international program committee invites proposals for workshops.
The accepted workshops from this call will be included in the WIMS'11 main
program.



Workshop proposals must provide a forum for discussion in areas of special
interest within the broader sense of *web intelligence, web mining** *and *web
semantics*. The scope of the workshops is also to acknowledge the impact of
web intelligence, mining and semantics and their wider applications in the
information society.



The organisers of successful workshops will be responsible for their own
reviewing process, website, and to co-ordinate the collection and delivery
of camera ready material and ACM copyright transfer. Accepted papers in
workshops will be published in the WIMS'11 proceedings and disseminated
through the ACM Digital Library. Selected extended papers will be invited to
appear in a special issues of reputed *journals** *in the field.



Proposals should be not more than 4 pages in length, should be in text or
PDF format. It should contain the following information:

   - A title of the workshop
   - Name, affiliation, postal address and email of contact person
   - Names and affiliations of organisers
   - A 150 word abstract
   - Aims and scope
   - Important dates
   - Description of the proposed  workshop
   - Duration of the workshop (half day, full day etc.)

* *

Submissions will be considered if they are received by 23:59, *December
15th  2010*, Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time).

* *

*Please send your enquiries and workshop proposals directly to *The Chair,
Program Committee (wims11@vestforsk.no)



*Call for Tutorial Proposals*

WIMS'11 also welcomes Tutorial and/or Demonstration proposals. WIMS'11 will
include tutorials and/or demonstrations (on new applications) providing
in-depth background on subjects that are of broad interest to the Web mining
and Web semantics community. This track aims to foster interaction and
collaboration among participating practitioners and academics, and to
provide developers with a place to showcase new practical implementations of
state-of-the-art systems in the areas of interest to the Web Intelligence
and  Semantics community.



The tutorials will be part of the main conference technical program.
Proposal papers must be no less than 3 pages and no more than 12 pages, and
must provide a sense of both the scope of the tutorial and depth within the
scope.



First page of the proposals should include contact information (name, email,
address, telephone number, and FAX number) and a brief bio of the
presenters. If the proposed tutorial has been given previously, the proposal
should include where the tutorial has been given and how it will be modified
for  WIMS'11. The intended length of the tutorial (1 or 2 or 3 hours) should
also be indicated, together with justification that a high-quality
presentation will be achieved within the chosen time period and the
indication of the main learning outcomes.



Demonstrations will be an opportunity for showcasing innovative Semantic Web
related implementations and technologies.



Submitted tutorial/demonstration papers will be reviewed prior to
publication, and may be rejected for publication, if either the technical
quality of the paper is insufficient or the content of the paper does not
match the content of the tutorial. Tutorial/Demonstration papers will be
published in the conference proceedings as part of the ACM International
Proceedings Series and will be disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.



Please note that the submission format is MS Word or PDF. The proposal must
be written in English and formatted according to the ACM guidelines. Author
instructions and style files can be downloaded at
