Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC)

Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)

IEEE Computer Society

Important Dates

February 1, 2017: Workshop and Special session proposal submissions (to 
be send by Email to the chairs (see below))

February 15, 2017: Notification of Workshop and Special session acceptance

Conference Date: August 23 - 26, 2016

Conference Location: University of Leipzig, Leipzig, Germany


Special session and Workshop proposals are invited to the 2017 Web 
Intelligence conference to be held in Leipzig, Germany, on August 23-26, 
2018. Their objective is to complement the regular program with specific 
or emerging topics that are of particular interest to the Web 
Intelligence community and, in case of Workshops, to provide a forum for 
intense and deep-going discussions. Special Session and Workshop 
proposals need to address topics that do not pertain to well-established 
tracks of WI. They may, however, cut across and beyond disciplines 
traditionally represented at WI conferences.

Special Sessions

Typically, each Special Session comprises at least 3 regular 
presentations, or 5 short ones, or an adequate mixture of these. The 
first paper in a Special Session may serve as an introduction to the 
field, aimed at listeners, who are not experts in the field yet and, 
therefore, could also be an overview paper. An organizer should not 
contribute with more than one paper.


The purpose of the CP workshops is to provide a more informal venue in 
which participants can:

* explore specific research areas in depth,

* discuss new research directions,

* study specific application areas of Web Intelligence, or

* bring together researchers from different areas with shared interests.

How is a proposal meant to look like?

Prospective organizers of Special Sessions or Workshops (called events 
in the following) should submit proposals indicating:

1. Title and acronym of the event

2. Duration (in half-day steps) - for Workshops only

3. Description of the event topic, and a draft version of CFP (not 
exceeding 500 words)

4. Short description on how the organizers plan to attract quality 
submissions (CfP spreading?)

5. Preliminary list of invited speakers (if already available)

6. Past records (if any)

7. Short bio of the organizers

8. Tentative program committee (if already available)

9. Contact information of the organizers (including name, affiliation, 
mailing address, and e-mail address)

Evaluation of Proposals:

Special session and Workshop proposals will be evaluated based on the 
timeliness of the topic, its uniqueness, the qualifications of the 
proposers and their experience. The proposers are expected to have at 
least a PhD degree and a good publication track record in the proposed 
area. A tentative accept/reject decision on the proposal will be sent to 
the proposers within a short period after its receipt by the Special 
Sessions and Workshop Chairs. Accepted special sessions and Workshops 
will be listed on the website. However, it may be that we suggest that 
an accepted proposal shall be combined with a similar proposal to avoid 
multiple Special Sessions or Workshops on a similar topic. A final 
decision will be made two weeks after the special session proposal 
deadline. High quality outcomes (papers) of these events may be 
considered for publication in a journal (e.g., Web Intelligence journal 
(IOS Press, 
www.iospress.nl/journal/web-intelligence-and-agent-systems/), or the 
Multiagent and Grid Systems journal (IOS Press, 

Proposal submissions:

Proposals are to be send by Email to all Workshop and Special Session 
Chairs (see below).
