WIMS’14: 4th International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and
Thessaloniki, Greece, 2-4 June 2014  

(Venue, Accommodation & Registration Details incl.)

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.

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

Keynote Speakers:
- “Large-Scale Reasoning with (Semantic) Data”: Grigoris Antoniou,
  Professor, University of Huddersfield
- “Semantic Technology for online, broadcast and print media”: Jem
  Rayfield, Head Architect, Financial Times
- “Big Data – from Hype to Reality”: Richard Benjamins, Dr., Director of
  Business Intelligence, Telefonica

Venue & Accommodation:
Porto Palace Hotel ( - a luxurious
five-star hotel in the city of Thessaloniki. Low room prices have been
secured for the WIMS’14 attendees (75€/single, 85€/double).

Student registration: 250€ (not valid for students who are also

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:

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

The submissions should be typeset using the templates of the ACM
International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS). The templates could
be retrieved

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:

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

- 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:

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).
