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 will be co-located with the 2016 International Conference on Brain Informatics and Health (BIH'16). Under our theme Connecting Network and Brain with Big Data, WI'16 and BIH'16 will provide a broad forum that academia, professionals and industry people can use to exchange their ideas, findings and strategies in utilizing the power of human brains and man-made networks to create a better world. The attendees only need to register for one of the 2 conferences, but they can attend all sessions and social events of the 2 conferences.

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.

Tutorial, Workshop and Special Session proposals and Industry/Demo-Track papers are also welcome.

Topics and Areas:

  • Track 1: Collective Intelligence
  • Track 2: Data Science
  • Track 3: Human-Centric Computing
  • Track 4: Knowledge Management
  • Track 5: Network Science

Paper Submission and Publication

WI'16 solicits original work submitted as a regular paper (limited to 8 pages) or as short paper (limited to 4 pages) in IEEE 2-column format. Each paper will be peer-reviewed by at least three PC members on the basis of technical quality, relevance, originality, significance and clarity. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press and indexed by EI. Selected WI'16 papers will be further invited for expansion and publication in Web Intelligence and other international journals.
