Call for Workshop Proposals

The 3d issue of WIMS is intended to foster the dissemination of the state-of-the-art research in the areas of Web intelligence, Web mining, Web semantics with a particular emphasis on the fundamental interaction between these vibrant fields of research and development. In particular, but not limited to, the conference invites submissions in:

  • Semantics-driven Information Retrieval
  • Semantic Agent Systems
  • Semantic Data Search
  • Interaction Paradigms for Semantic Search
  • Evaluation of Semantic Search
  • Linked Data Applications and Architectures
  • User Interfaces for the Web of Data
  • Web Mining
  • Reasoning and Learning
  • Ubiquitous Intelligence
  • Semantic Deep Web
  • Intelligent e-Technology and Semantic Web
  • Quality of Life Technology for Web Document Access
  • Representation techniques for Web-based knowledge
  • Rule markup languages and systems
  • Semantic 3D media and content
  • Scalability vs. expressivity of reasoning on the Web
Besides the main technical program, WIMS 2013 will host a number of workshops on the topics broadly related to the theme of the conference. The role of the workshops is to provide a forum for an intensive and focused scientific exchange amongst researchers and practitioners interested in a particular topic and a meeting venue for the community.

Workshop Proposals

Workshops should provide forums for discussion among researchers and practitioners on focused topics or emerging research areas. Organizers may structure workshops as they see fit, possibly including invited talks, panel discussions, presentations of work in progress, peer-reviewed papers, or some combination. A workshop could be scheduled for a half a day or a full day, depending on potential interest and organizers preference. Organizers should design workshops for approximately 10-30 participants to balance impact and effective discussion.

In order to meet these goals, workshops should address topics that satisfy the following criteria:

  • The topic falls in the general scope of WIMS 2013 – please see above
  • There is a clear focus on a specific theme, technology, problem, or application
  • There is a sufficiently large audience interested in the topic

Proposers of accepted workshops have to prepare a workshop webpage containing a call for papers and detailed information about the workshop organization and timelines. The organizers of successful workshops will be responsible for:

  • Their own reviewing process
  • Publicity (e.g., website, etc.)

By default it is assumed that the papers accepted by WIMS Workshops will be published in the WIMS 2013 proceedings and disseminated through the ACM Digital Library. It is also acceptable if the organizers prefer to publish their proceedings separately. In the latter case it is appreciated that the proposal informs about the intended publisher. Selected extended papers may be invited to appear in special issues of international scientific journals in the respective fields. Workshop organizers will be required to closely cooperate with the WIMS 2013 Workshops co-chairs and local organizers to provide their contributions for the proceedings on time, coordinate all organization details, and ensure a successful satellite event at WIMS.

Proposal Submissions

Workshop proposals in PDF or plain text must be submitted by e-mail to the WIMS 2013 Workshops co-chair Vadim Ermolayev at and should include:

  • The name and acronym of the workshop
  • The intended duration of the workshop (half day, full day, etc.)
  • A 150 word abstract
  • The description (0.5-1 page) of the theme of the workshop covering its aims and scope
  • The description (one paragraph) of the relation between the theme of the workshop and of WIMS 2013
  • The list of topics of interest
  • The names, affiliations, e-mail, and postal addresses of the organizers and preferably of a significant part of the program committee
  • The estimation of potential interest to the workshop theme and the number of submissions
  • The information about previous offerings of the workshop (if any), including the attendance, the numbers of papers or presentations submitted and accepted, and the links to the corresponding websites
  • The publicity plan for attracting submissions and attendees
  • Important dates
  • If applicable, the intended publisher for the workshop proceedings
Due to publication deadlines, workshops must operate roughly within the timeline given below.

Important Dates

  • 30.11.2012 17.12.2012 – submission of Workshop proposals
  • 08.12.2012 21.12.2012 – notification about acceptance of Workshop proposals
  • 20.02.2013 – Workshop papers submission deadline

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.
