The 2014 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI 2014) will be a part of the 2014 Web Intelligence Congress (WIC 2014). WIC 2014 will be held at the historical Central Campus of the University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland, between 11th and 14th of August 2014.
Web Intelligence focuses on scientific research and applications by jointly using Artificial Intelligence (AI) (e.g., knowledge representation, planning, knowledge discovery and data mining, intelligent agents, and social network intelligence) and advanced Information Technology (IT) (e.g., Semantic Web, Wisdom Web, Web search, Web Mining, recommender systems) for the next generation of Web-empowered products, systems, services, and activities.
The series of Web Intelligence (WI) conferences was started in Japan in 2001. Since then, WI has been held yearly in several countries, including: Canada, China, France, USA, Australia and Italy. WI conference is recognized as the World's leading forum related to Web Intelligence. In 2014, it will be organized in Warsaw as a Special Event commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Web.
WIC 2014 as a whole provides a leading international forum that brings together researchers and practitioners from diverse fields with the purpose of exploring the fundamental roles, interactions as well as practical impacts of Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Information Technology. Web Intelligence has been recognized as one of the most important and promising directions for scientific research and development of solutions that contribute to creation of the Knowledge-based Society. WIC 2014 will also include events focused on Intelligent Agents, Active Media as well as Brain Informatics and Health, in order to increase the cross-fertilization of ideas from different communities.
In addition to four federated conferences the workshops and special sessions organized as a part of WIC 2014 create an opportunity to exchange ideas, identify emerging challenges and present novel results from different domains in more focused manner.
