Web Intelligence (WI) aims to achieve a multi-disciplinary balance between research advances in theories and methods usually associated with Collective Intelligence, Data Science, Human-Centric Computing, Knowledge Management, and Network Science. It is committed to addressing research that both deepen the understanding of computational, logical, cognitive, physical, and social foundations of the future Web, and enable the development and application of technologies based on Web intelligence.
The IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI) has been held jointly with the IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT) since 2001 in Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific. Starting in 2016, the IAT conference as well as its themes and topics will be embedded inside WI. WI'16 features high-quality, original research papers and real-world applications in all theoretical and technology areas that make up the field of WI.
WI'16 welcomes both research and application papers submissions. All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance and clarity. Accepted full papers will be included in the proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press.
A Celebration of the 60th Anniversary of AI
The Web Intelligence (WI) 2016 conference is dedicated to Artificial Intelligence (AI) while at a time we celebrate the pass of the sixth decade since AI was ever introduced to the scientific research community by our pioneers. Aiming at creating computers and computer software capacity of intelligent behaviour, throughout the sixty years' journey many amusing achievements have been made, including the recent AlphaGo, an intelligent computer program who beat Lee Sedol, a 9-dan professional player in a five-game match of Go.
Such a task was considered an impossible mission if looking back in just a decade ago. As we enter the big data era, Web Intelligence has extended and made use of artificial intelligence for new products, services and frameworks that are empowered by the World Wide Web.
As a part of the celebration to the sixty years of AI, WI'16 will be co-located with Brain Informatics & Health (BIH) 2016, and proudly host two Turing Award laureates, Dr. Leslie Valiant (Turing Award 2010) and Dr. Butler Lampson (Turing Award 1992) as keynote speakers, as well as two distinguished brain scientists, Dr. Stephen Smith and Dr. Ivan Soltesz as the BIH keynote speakers, for the community to share with their intelligent, wisdom minds. We also will organize a panel on Connecting Network and Brain with Big Data and invite keynote/feature speakers of the 2 conferences as panelists.
