please find enclosed the Call for Paper for the 1st International 
Symposium of Web Intelligence and Security (WIS), a member conference  
of the 8th Joint Conference on Information Science (see 

We would appreciate if you could distribute the call among your 
colleagues and students.
Please note that there are two deadlines, an early one (Dec 1, 2004) for 
those who need early notification for visa purposes, and the standard 
deadline (Jan 15, 2005).

Thank you very much for your support.

1st International Symposium of Web Intelligence and Security (WIS)
A member conference of the 8th Joint Conference on Information Science 
(JCIS 2005 <http://www.jcis.org/>)
July 21-26, 2005, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

Information on the Web is vast and yet mostly unstructured. To retrieve 
and store the needed information in an efficient and secure way calls 
for research that draws upon areas like Artificial Intelligence, 
Security, Agent Technologies, Distributed Computing, Databases, Semantic 
Web, and others. Web applications that meet the needs of users can draw 
from progress made in areas such as autonomic computing and adapting, 
self-organizing agents among others. As the importance of designing 
security into systems from the very beginning becomes widely accepted, 
the question arises how the progress that has been made in theoretical 
and practical aspects of design and implementation of secure systems 
will influence the design of intelligent, Web-based systems.

The 1st International Symposium on Web Intelligence and Security 
solicits the submission of original work in progress, innovative ideas, 
experimental results, and completed projects of Web intelligence and Web 
security. Papers that explore the state-of-the-art and future direction 
of intelligent Web systems in the context of security concerns are 
especially welcome.

Topics include but are not limited to the following:

o Web Intelligence
  - Autonomy-oriented and autonomic computing
  - Ubiquitous Computing and Social Intelligence
  - Wisdom Web
  - Knowledge Grid and Grid Intelligence
  - AI techniques for security
o Agent Technology
  - Secure agent communication
  - Mobile agent security
  - Agents and privacy, anonymity, security, trust
  - Agent security infrastructures and architectures
  - Agent-based Web intelligence technologies
  - Agent self-organization, learning, and adaptation

o Trust, Privacy, Security, Anonymity, and Contracts in the (Semantic) Web
  - Trust establishment and negotiation
  - Policies, contracts, business rules
  - Trust provenance and trust management
  - Distributed trust
  - Personalization techniques for security, trust, privacy, anonymity
  - Delegation
  - Adaptive security
  - Web standards for security
  - Semantic Web (Services) and Security
  - Ontology engineering
  - Reputation on the Web
  - Intrusion Detection for the Semantic Web
o Web Mining
  - Security in Web Mining
  - Web information filtering and retrieval
  - Agent-based knowledge discovery
  - Soft Computing techniques

o Applications, Case Studies, and Testbeds
  - E-Learning, E-Government, E-Training
  - Semantic Web for E-Business
  - XML and RDF applications
  - Web services applications

Important Dates:

- December 1, 2004: Paper submission in electronic format due for 
authors requiring early notification
- January 15, 2005: Paper submission in electronic format due for 
standard submission
- February 1, 2005: Notification of acceptance for authors who require 
early notification
- March 15, 2005: Notification of acceptance for authors with standard 
- April 30, 2005: Final camera ready papers submitted online (Word or PDF)
