Call for Research Papers/Posters

Research Papers

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 on all related areas. Papers exploring new directions or areas will receive a thorough and encouraging review.

WIMS poster track is a venue for late-breaking results, ongoing research activities, and speculative or innovative work in progress. This track is intended to provide authors and participants with the ability to connect with each other and to engage in discussions about the work. Posters provide authors with a unique opportunity to draw attention to their work during the conference. Posters are limited to 4 pages.


Accepted papers/posters will be published by ACM and disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.

IJAIT-sample-coverA 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,

These revised and extended papers will undergo the full review procedure.
