The WIMS’14 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. The overall purpose of a workshop is to provide participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel research ideas on 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 role of the workshops is to 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 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.
Workshops should address topics that satisfy the following criteria:
- The topic falls in the general scope of WIMS’14
- There is a clear focus on a specific theme, technology, problem, or application
- There is a sufficiently large audience interested in the topic
The organisers of successful workshops will be responsible for their own reviewing process, website and to coordinate 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.
Proposals should be not more than 4 pages in length, should be in text or PDF format and should contain the following information:
- A title of the workshop
- Name, affiliation, postal address and email of contact person
- Names and affiliations of organisers
- A 150 word abstract
- Aims and scope
- Important dates
- Description of the proposed workshop
- Duration of the workshop (half day, full day etc.)
Workshop proposals should be submitted via email to the workshop and tutorials chairs.
Workshop proposals will be immediately reviewed and workshop chairs will be notified accordingly about the acceptance / rejection of their proposal.
Please check the Important Dates page for the workshop proposals deadline.
