Call for Breaking News - Extended Abstracts

The 3rd International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics (WIMS'13) will provide an excellent international forum for sharing knowledge and results in theory, methodology and applications of Web intelligence, Web mining and Web semantics.

The WIMS'13 program will feature several invited talks, peer-reviewed contributed talks, tutorials , workshops and posters. However, in addition, as an innovation for WIMS’13, some time at the conference will be set aside for "breaking news" presentations submitted on the basis of a 2 to 4-page extended abstract. These presentations may report on:

  • ongoing or unpublished projects,
  • projects already completed elsewhere,
  • partially developed ideas,
  • negative results etc.,
  • and are meant as informal forum to encourage discussion.
  • Extended abstracts should summarize and highlight why the projects will be of interest to the WIMS community.
Extended abstracts on all aspects of Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics are strongly encouraged, including but not limited to:

- Semantics-driven Information Retrieval
- Semantic Agent Systems
- semantic technologies and Big Data
- Semantic Data Search
- Interaction Paradigms for Semantic Search
- Evaluation of Semantic Search
- Web intelligence and data science
- User Interfaces
- Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
- Web Mining
- Ontology Mining and Knowledge Discovery in Knowledge Bases
- Ubiquitous Computing
- Semantic Deep Web and Intelligent e-Technology
- Representation Techniques for Web-based knowledge
- Quality of Life Technology for Web Document Access
- Rule markup languages and systems
- Machine Learning & Knowledge Discovery
- Semantic 3D media and content
- Optimization-based Data Mining and Web Intelligence
- Web Personalization and Recommender Systems
- Social Search and Web Logs Analysis
- Opinion Mining for Business Intelligence
- Natural Language Processing and Web Intelligence
- Intelligent Web Interaction
- Service-Oriented Intelligence
- Collaborative Agents
- Human-Oriented Knowledge
- Scalability vs. expressivity of reasoning on the Web


This session will be divided into two parts: a presentation part open to all in which all participating projects present themselves; and an interaction part restricted to participating projects and attendees for one-on-one meetings. Each project will have no more than 6 slides and 10 minutes to present itself to the attendees.

How to submit

The length of breaking news abstract is 2 to 4 pages in ACM format.
Please note that the submission format is MS Word or PDF. The extended abstracts must be written in English and formatted according to the ACM guidelines. Author instructions and style files can be downloaded at

Authors of accepted abstracts are expected to attend the conference and present their work. These extended abstracts will be included in the WIMS'13 conference proceedings to be published by ACM ICPS. Selected extended abstracts will be invited to appear in a special issue of reputed journal ( indexed by ISI in Web Of Science & SCOPUS) in the field.

Submissions will be considered if they are received by 23:59, March 24th 2013, Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time).

The 3rd International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics (WIMS'13) is organised under the auspices of Autonomous University of Madrid . The site for the previous editions, WIMS'12 and WIMS'11, can be found here.

This is the third in a new series of conferences concerned with intelligent approaches to transform the World Wide Web into a global reasoning and semantics-driven computing machine.
