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.



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

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:


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:


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
