CALL FOR PAPERS

WIMS’14

4th International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics

Thessaloniki, Greece, 2-4 June 2014

http://wims14.csd.auth.gr

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

WIMS traditionally hosts a small number of short tutorials on the topics 
related to the scope of the conference series. The role of a WIMS 
tutorial is to be a theme-oriented comprehensive survey. WIMS also 
offers its infrastructure and facilities for the organizers of satellite 
workshops that complement the scope of the conference. The calls for 
WIMS’14 Tutorials and Workshops are published separately.

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
