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

Web Intelligence (WI) has been recognized as a new direction for
scientific research and development to explore the fundamental roles
as well as practical impacts of Artificial Intelligence (AI) (e.g.,
knowledge representation, planning, knowledge discovery and data
mining, intelligent agents, and social network intelligence) and
advanced Information Technology (IT) (e.g., wireless networks,
ubiquitous devices, social networks, and data/knowledge grids) on the
next generation of Web-empowered products, systems, services, and
activities. It is one of the most important as well as promising IT
research fields in the era of Web and agent intelligence.

The 2007 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence
(WI'07) will be jointly held with the 2007 IEEE/WIC/ACM International
Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT'07), the 2007 IEEE
International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM'07),
and the 2007 IEEE International Conference on Granular Computing
(GrC'07) for providing synergism among the four research areas.  It
will provide opportunities for technical collaboration beyond that of
previous conferences. The four conferences will have a joint opening,
keynote, reception, and banquet. Attendees only need to register for
one conference and can attend workshops, sessions and tutorials across
the four conferences. We are also planning a joint panel and joint
paper sessions that discuss common problems in the four areas.

+++++++++++
Highlights
+++++++++++

The conference will be held in Silicon Valley, California. Many
high-tech companies and three distinguished universities (Stanford, 
UC Berkely and UCSC) are just around the corner. The highlight of the
conference is that a unique forum consisting of a half-day industry/
demo track and free discussion will be organized to link industries
and academics. Leading IT companies like IBM, Google, and Yahoo etc
will present at the conference.

The area now known as Silicon Valley has been a center of
technological development since the 1950's. The name Silicon Valley
stems from the early 1970's, when the area had become the center for
many semiconductor companies. While still hosting semiconductor and
microprocessor companies, the region now hosts the headquarters of
high tech companies of every kind, including many of the best known
and most prestigious names in personal computers, Web search, Internet
auctions, networking, storage, databases, etc.

IEEE 2-column format, the same as the camera-ready format (see the
Author Guidelines of last year at
http://www.computer.org/portal/pages/cscps/cps/final/wi06.xml).  
All submitted papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee 
on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity. 

Note that WI'07 will accept ONLY on-line submissions, containing 
PDF versions. Please use the Submission Form on the WI'07

Submissions accepted as short papers will be allocated 4
pages in the proceedings and will have a shorter presentation time at
the conference than regular papers.

All co-authors will be notified at all time, for the submission,
notification, and confirmation on the attendance. Submitting a paper
to the conference and workshops means that, if the paper is accepted,
at least one author should attend the conference to present the
paper. The acceptance list and no-show list will be openly published
on-line. For no-show authors, their affiliations will receive a
notification. 

A selected number of WI'07 accepted papers will be expanded and
revised for inclusion in Web Intelligence and Agent Systems: An
International Journal (http://wi-consortium.org/journal.html) and in
Annual Review of Intelligent Informatics
(http://www.wi-consortium.org/annual.html).

More detailed instructions and the On-Line Submission Form can be
