WIMS’14: 4th International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and
Thessaloniki, Greece, 2-4 June 2014

(Venue, Accommodation & Registration Details incl.)

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

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’14 attendees (75€/single, 85€/double).

Registration fees:
Author / Early bird registration fee: 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

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

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 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
