About WIMS'14 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.

HIGHLIGHTS
-----------------
Proceedings published in ACM International Conference Proceedings Series.

Post-conference Special Issue at the International Journal on Artificial 
Intelligence Tools (IJAIT).

Keynote Speakers:
- "Large-Scale Reasoning with (Semantic) Data": Grigoris Antoniou, 
Professor, University of Huddersfield
- "Semantic Technology for online, broadcast and print media": Jem 
Rayfield, Head Architect, Financial Times
- "Big Data – from Hype to Reality": Richard Benjamins, Dr., Director of 
Business Intelligence, Telefonica

Venue & Accommodation: Porto Palace Hotel 
(http://www.portopalace.gr/en), a luxurious five-star hotel in the city 
of Thessaloniki. Low room prices have been secured for the WIMS 2014 
attendees (75€/single, 85€/double).

Registration fees: Author / Early bird registration fees: 450€, Late 
registration: 550€, Student registration: 250€ (not valid for students 
who are also authors)

Call for Research Papers/Posters
--------------------------------------------
WIMS'14 is intended to foster the dissemination of state-of-the-art 
research in the area of Web intelligence, Web mining, Web semantics and 
the fundamental interaction between them. Authors are invited to submit 
regular (12 pages) or short (6 pages) research papers or posters (4 
pages) on all related areas. Papers exploring new directions or areas 
will receive a thorough and encouraging review.

More details on the nature of the different submission types can be 
found at:
http://wims14.csd.auth.gr/?page_id=23

The papers in all the categories should describe original results that 
have not been accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere. All 
submissions will be evaluated by at least three members of the 
international program committee.

Submissions should be made electronically in PDF or DOC/DOCX (MS/Open 
Word) format via the electronic submission system of the WIMS'14 
Conference Management system at
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wims14

The submissions should be typeset using the templates of the ACM 
International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS). The templates could 
be retrieved from 
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates

Call for Application and Case Study Track Papers
----------------------------------------------------------------
The goal of this track is to provide opportunities for researchers, 
innovators, industry leaders, and practitioners to present and exchange 
ideas, results, and experiences in the applications of Web Intelligence, 
Mining, and Semantics (WIMS). The Application & Case Studies Track 
invites submissions describing implementations of Web Intelligence, 
Mining, and Semantics in industrial or government or other 'real world' 
settings. Papers must include descriptions of how the applications have 
been conceived, developed, and (probably) deployed.

Details about the submission types and the submission procedure of this 
track can be found at:
http://wims14.csd.auth.gr/?page_id=154

Conference Scope
-------------------------
WIMS solicits regular and work-in-progress research, discussion papers 
and industry experience report papers in related fields. Papers 
exploring new directions or areas are also welcome. In particular but 
not exclusively the submissions within the following major areas are 
relevant:

- Scalable Web and Data Architectures and Infrastructures
- Web Intelligence
- Web Mining, Information and Knowledge Extraction
- Web Semantics and Reasoning
- WIMS Applications
- Evaluation and Validation of WIMS Technologies and Applications

More details about the conference scope and topics can be found at:
http://wims14.csd.auth.gr/?page_id=146

Publications
----------------
Accepted papers/tutorials/posters will be published by ACM and 
disseminated through the ACM Digital Library through the International 
Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS).

A selection of the best WIMS'14 papers will be invited to be revised and 
extended for the post-conference publication in the Special Issue of the 
International Journal on Artificial Intelligence Tools (IJAIT).
