A venue for late-breaking results, ongoing research activities, and speculative or innovative work in progress. This track is intended to provide authors and participants with the ability to connect with each other and to engage in discussions about the work. Posters provide authors with a unique opportunity to draw attention to their work during the conference. Accepted contributions will be published in electronic form and are limited to 2 pages.


Accepted papers/tutorials/posters will be published by ACM and disseminated through the ACM Digital Library. Selected extended papers presented at WIMS'13 will be invited to appear in a special issues of reputed journals in the field( indexed by ISI-Thomson, SCOPUS, DBLP, and other well known indexes) and also in a book published by Elsevier.

How to submit

The maximum length of

  • research paper is at most 12 pages in ACM format
  • poster (short) paper is at most 5 pages in ACM format

Please note that the submission format is MS Word or PDF. The papers must be written in English and formatted according to the ACM guidelines. Author instructions and style files can be downloaded at

Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend the conference and present their work. Selected extended papers presented at WIMS'13 will be invited to appear in a special issues of reputed journals ( indexed by ISI in Web Of Science and SCOPUS) in the field and also in a book published by Elsevier.



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.
