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.

Objectives
--------------
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

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:
http://wims14.csd.auth.gr/?page_id=23

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
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wims14

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:
http://wims14.csd.auth.gr/?page_id=154

Call for Tutorials/Demonstration Proposals
----------------------------------------------------------
WIMS’14 also welcomes Tutorial and/or Demonstration proposals. WIMS’14  
will include tutorials and/or demonstrations (on new applications)  
providing in-depth background on subjects that are of broad interest  
to the Web Mining and Web Semantics community. The tutorials will be  
part of the main conference technical program. Proposal papers must be  
no less than 5 pages and no more than 12 pages, and must provide a  
sense of both the scope of the tutorial and depth within the scope.

Details about the submissions of the tutorial/demonstration proposals  
can be found at:
http://wims14.csd.auth.gr/?page_id=148

Call for Workshop Proposals
--------------------------------------
WIMS’14 invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with  
the conference. Organizers may structure workshops as they see fit,  
possibly including invited talks, panel discussions, presentations of  
work in progress, peer-reviewed papers, or some combination. A  
workshop could be scheduled for a half a day or a full day, depending  
on potential interest and organizers preference.

The organizers of successful workshops will be responsible for their  
own reviewing process, website, and to co-ordinate the collection and  
delivery of camera ready material and ACM copyright transfer. Accepted  
papers in workshops will be published in the WIMS’14 proceedings and  
disseminated through the ACM Digital Library. Selected extended papers  
will be invited to appear in a special issue of a reputed journal in  
the field.

Details about the submissions of the workshop proposals can be found at:
http://wims14.csd.auth.gr/?page_id=150

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

More details about the conference scope and topics can be found at:
http://wims14.csd.auth.gr/?page_id=146


Publications
----------------
Accepted papers/tutorials/posters will be published by ACM and  
disseminated through the ACM Digital Library through the International  
Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS).

A selection of the best WIMS'14 papers will be invited to be revised  
and extended for the post-conference publication in the Special Issue  
of the International Journal on Artificial Intelligence Tools (IJAIT).
