Web Intelligence consists of a multidisciplinary area dealing with
exploiting data and services over the Web, to create new data and
services using both Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)
and Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques. Communities appear as a
first-class object in the areas of web intelligence and agent
technologies, as well as a crucial crossroads of several sub-domains
(i.e. user modelling, protocols, data management, data mining, content
modelling, etc.). These sub-domains impact the nature of the
communities and the applications which are related to them. These
applications are numerous, and the success of well-known Social
Network Sites for entertainment should not be allowed to over-shadow
the other application domains, for instance in education, health,
design, knowledge management, and so forth.

The workshop will provide presentation and discussion opportunities
for researchers working on web intelligence applied to collaborative
networks, such as virtual communities. The possibilities and
consequences of the web usage for collaborative networks are
tremendous and new tools are required to satisfy users and service

The workshop Web Intelligence and Communities expects contributions on
topics such as:

- User centric application based on social intelligence
- Linked data and big data for e-Communities
- Semantics and ontologies for e-Communities
- SOA, services and cloud for e-Communities
- Multi-agent models and tools for e-Communities
- Storage, querying, and diffusion
- Social, psychological and economical aspects of e-Communities
- Innovation and e-Communities
- Social networks enhancements
- Mobility and context-awareness
- e-Communities in ambient intelligence
- Transient e-Communities
- Personalisation, reputation and recommendations
- Privacy, security and trust aspects in e-Communities
- Applications: e-* (learning, health, government, games etc.)
- Performances evaluation, experiments, and user feed-back
- Process modelling for e-Communities


The Web Intelligence and Communities workshop welcomes the submission
of theoretical, experimental, methodological as well as application
Discussion papers and demonstration papers are also welcome.

Submitted papers should be 10 pages maximum in length (4 pages for the
discussion and demonstration papers), including figures and
The paper must be formatted in pdf according to style guidelines of
