Call for Workshops, Demonstrations and Tutorials Proposals at WIMS2015

Call for Workshops, Demonstrations and Tutorials Proposals

      The 5th International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and
      Semantics (WIMS 2015) organizing committee invites proposals for
      workshops, demonstrations (on new applications) and tutorials to be
      held in conjunction with the conference. The overall purpose of
      workshops and tutorials is to provide participants with the
      opportunity to present and discuss novel research ideas in areas of
      Web intelligence, Web mining and Web semantics, with a particular
      emphasis on the fundamental interaction between these vibrant fields
      of research and development. The purpose of demonstrations is to
      provide developers with a place to showcase new practical and
      innovative implementations of state-of-the-art systems in the areas
      of interest to the Web Intelligence and Semantics community.

      Workshops and tutorials provide a forum for an intensive and focused
      scientific exchange amongst researchers and practitioners interested
      in a particular topic and a meeting venue for the community.
      Organizers may structure workshops/tutorials as they see fit,
      possibly including invited talks, panel discussions, presentations of
      work in progress, peer-reviewed papers, demonstrations or some
      combination. A workshop/tutorial could be scheduled for a half a day
      or a full day, depending on potential interest and organizers

      Workshops and tutorials should address topics that satisfy the
      following criteria:

          The topic falls in the general scope of WIMS 2015 (
          There is a clear focus on a specific theme, technology, problem,
      or application
          There is a sufficiently large audience interested in the topic

      The organizers of successful workshops and tutorials will be
      responsible for their own reviewing process, website, arranging
      invited speakers and co-ordinate the collection and delivery of
      camera ready material. There is an opportunity for papers accepted in
      workshops to be published in the WIMS`15 proceedings and disseminated
      through the ACM Digital Library, provided they follow the ACM
      submission guidelines and template and adhere to camera ready
      submission and registration deadlines as those set for the main
      conference. Selected extended papers will be invited to appear in a
      special issue of a reputed journal in the field.
