4th International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics

Thessaloniki, Greece, 2-4 June 2014


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.



The purpose of the WIMS series is:

- To provide a forum for established researchers and practitioners to 
present their contributions to the state

of the art research and development in Web technology and applications

- To give doctoral students an opportunity to present their research to 
a friendly and knowledgeable

audience and receive valuable feedback

- To provide an informal social event where Web technology researchers 
and practitioners can meet

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:


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


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:


Call for Tutorials/Demonstration Proposals


WIMS’14 also welcomes Tutorial and/or Demonstration proposals. WIMS’14 
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. The tutorials will be part 
of the main conference technical program. Proposal papers must be no 
less than 5 pages and no more than 12 pages, and must provide a sense of 
both the scope of the tutorial and depth within the scope.

Details about the submissions of the tutorial/demonstration proposals 
can be found at:


Call for Workshop Proposals


WIMS’14 invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with 
the conference. Organizers may structure workshops as they see fit, 
possibly including invited talks, panel discussions, presentations of 
work in progress, peer-reviewed papers, or some combination. A workshop 
could be scheduled for a half a day or a full day, depending on 
potential interest and organizers preference.

The organizers 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’14 proceedings and 
disseminated through the ACM Digital Library. Selected extended papers 
will be invited to appear in a special issue of a reputed journal in the 

Details about the submissions of the workshop proposals can be found at:


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 

- 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:




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).
