[Apologies if you receive this more than once. Kindly disseminate the WIMS'11 call in any lists you subscribe, and among your colleagues and students.] International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics (WIMS'11) Sogndal, Norway (May 25-27, 2011) http://wims.vestforsk.no The WIMS'11 call for papers got a tremendous response. Thanks for your support. Now, the conference program committee would like to invite proposals and/or abstracts for the following 3 new calls. Call for Breaking News - Abstracts The WIMS'11 program will feature several invited talks, peer-reviewed contributed talks, tutorials , workshops and posters. However, in addition, as an innovation for WIMS'11, some time at the conference will be set aside for late "breaking news" posters submitted on the basis of a two-page abstract. These posters may report on * ongoing or unpublished projects * projects already completed elsewhere * partially developed ideas * negative results etc.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. Abstracts should summarize and highlight why the projects will be of interest to the WIMS community. Submitted two-page abstracts will be peer reviewed and presentation of these at the Conference will lead to publication in the WIMS'11 Proceedings. 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 Data Search * Interaction Paradigms for Semantic Search * Evaluation of Semantic Search * 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 Award The best breaking news poster from all submissions will be determined by the PC and a Best 'Breaking News' Award will be presented at the conference. How to submit The length of breaking news abstract is 2 pages in ACM format. Please note that the submission format is MS Word or PDF. The two-page abstracts must be written in English and formatted according to the ACM guidelines. Author instructions and style files can be downloaded at http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates Authors of accepted abstracts are expected to attend the conference and present their work. Selected extended abstracts will be invited to appear in a special issues of reputed journals in the field. Submissions will be considered if they are received by 23:59, March 1st 2011, Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time). Breaking news abstracts must be sent to Chair, Program Committee (E-mail: wims11_(at)_vestforsk.no) Call for Workshop Proposals The WIMS'11 international program committee invites proposals for workshops. The accepted workshops from this call will be included in the WIMS'11 main program. Workshop proposals must provide a forum for discussion in areas of special interest within the broader sense of web intelligence, web mining and web semantics. The scope of the workshops is also to acknowledge the impact of web intelligence, mining and semantics and their wider applications in the information society. The organisers of successful workshops will be responsible for their own reviewing process, website, and to co-ordinate the collection and delivery of camera ready material and ACM copyright transfer. Accepted papers in workshops will be published in the WIMS'11 proceedings and disseminated through the ACM Digital Library. Selected extended papers will be invited to appear in a special issues of reputed journals in the field. Proposals should be not more than 4 pages in length, should be in text or PDF format. It should contain the following information: * A title of the workshop * Name, affiliation, postal address and email of contact person * Names and affiliations of organisers * A 150 word abstract * Aims and scope * Important dates * Description of the proposed workshop * Duration of the workshop (half day, full day etc.) Submissions will be considered if they are received by 23:59, December 15th 2010, Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time). Please send your enquiries and workshop proposals directly to The Chair, Program Committee (wims11_(at)_vestforsk.no) Call for Tutorial Proposals WIMS'11 also welcomes Tutorial and/or Demonstration proposals. WIMS'11 will include tutorials and/or demonstrations (on new applications) providing in-depth background on subjects that are of broad interest to the Web mining and Web semantics community. This track aims to foster interaction and collaboration among participating practitioners and academics, and to provide developers with a place to showcase new practical implementations of state-of-the-art systems in the areas of interest to the Web Intelligence and Semantics community. The tutorials will be part of the main conference technical program. Proposal papers must be no less than 3 pages and no more than 12 pages, and must provide a sense of both the scope of the tutorial and depth within the scope. First page of the proposals should include contact information (name, email, address, telephone number, and FAX number) and a brief bio of the presenters. If the proposed tutorial has been given previously, the proposal should include where the tutorial has been given and how it will be modified for WIMS'11. The intended length of the tutorial (1 or 2 or 3 hours) should also be indicated, together with justification that a high-quality presentation will be achieved within the chosen time period and the indication of the main learning outcomes. Demonstrations will be an opportunity for showcasing innovative Semantic Web related implementations and technologies. Submitted tutorial/demonstration papers will be reviewed prior to publication, and may be rejected for publication, if either the technical quality of the paper is insufficient or the content of the paper does not match the content of the tutorial. Tutorial/Demonstration papers will be published in the conference proceedings as part of the ACM International Proceedings Series and will be disseminated through the ACM Digital Library. Please note that the submission format is MS Word or PDF. The proposal must be written in English and formatted according to the ACM guidelines. Author instructions and style files can be downloaded at http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates Submissions will be considered if they are received by 23:59, December 15th 2010, Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time).
