It is one of the most important as well as promising IT research fields in the era of Web and agent intelligence. The 2007 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI'07) will be jointly held with the 2007 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT'07), the 2007 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM'07), and the 2007 IEEE International Conference on Granular Computing (GrC'07) for providing synergism among the four research areas. It will provide opportunities for technical collaboration beyond that of previous conferences. The four conferences will have a joint opening, keynote, reception, and banquet. Attendees only need to register for one conference and can attend workshops, sessions and tutorials across the four conferences. We are also planning a joint panel and joint paper sessions that discuss common problems in the four areas. +++++++++++ Highlights +++++++++++ The conference will be held in Silicon Valley, California. Many high-tech companies and three distinguished universities (Stanford, UC Berkely and UCSC) are just around the corner. The highlight of the conference is that a unique forum consisting of a half-day industry/ demo track and free discussion will be organized to link industries and academics. Leading IT companies like IBM, Google, and Yahoo etc will present at the conference. The area now known as Silicon Valley has been a center of technological development since the 1950's. The name Silicon Valley stems from the early 1970's, when the area had become the center for many semiconductor companies. While still hosting semiconductor and microprocessor companies, the region now hosts the headquarters of high tech companies of every kind, including many of the best known and most prestigious names in personal computers, Web search, Internet auctions, networking, storage, databases, etc. +++++++++++++++++++ Topics of Interest +++++++++++++++++++ The topics and areas include, but not limited to: * WI Foundations - Brain Informatics for WI - Human level WI - New cognitive models and computational models for WI - Granular Computing (GrC) for WI - Autonomy-Oriented Computing (AOC) for WI * World Wide Wisdom Web (W4) - Meta-Knowledge Discovery and Representation - Problem Solver Markup Language (PSML) - Search of Best Means and Ends - Goal-Directed Services Support - Distributed Resources Optimization - Service Self-Aggregation - Web Inference Engine - Information and Knowledge Markets - New Social Interaction Paradigms - Social and Psychological Contexts - Regularities and Laws of W4 * Social Networks and Social Intelligence - Social Network Mining - Web Site Clustering - Link Topology and Site Hierarchy - Theories of Small-World Web - Virtual and Web Communities - Web-Based Cooperative Work - Knowledge Community Formation and Support - Ubiquitous Computing - Intelligent Wireless Web - Ubiquitous Learning Systems - Entertainment * Knowledge Grids and Grid Intelligence - Semantic Grids - Knowledge Resources and Services Discovery - On-Demand Planning and Routing - Brokering and Scheduling - Middleware Architectures and Tools * Web Mining and Farming - Text Mining - Data Stream Mining - Multimedia Data Mining - Web Content Mining - Web Log and Usage Mining - Learning User Profiles - Context Sensitive Web Mining - Web Information Clustering - Web Page Clustering and Mining - E-Mail Classification - Web Site Classification - Web Information Indexing - Data Warehousing - Web Farming and Warehousing * Semantics and Ontology Engineering - Ontology-Based Information Extraction and Retrieval - Ontology-Based Web Mining - Web-Based Ontology Learning - Semantic Web * Web Agents - Global Information Foraging - Distributed Problem Solving - Coordination - Resource Intermediary and Coordination Mechanisms - Self-Organization and Reproduction - Agent Networks and Topologies - Mobile Agents - Macroscopic Behavior Modeling - Trust Models for Web Agents * Web Services - Service-Oriented Computing - Matchmaking - Web Service Reconfiguration - Web Service Workflow Composition - Middleware-Based Ubiquitous Services - Grid Services * Web Information Filtering and Retrieval - Automatic Cataloging and Indexing - Clustering-Based Recommender Systems - Collaborative Filtering and Recommendation - Hybrid Recommendation - Information Retrieval Criteria and Evaluations - Web Information Categorization and Ranking - Proxy and Cache Techniques - Web Prediction and Prefetching - Distributed Web Search - Specifications for Web Information Extraction Process - Web Crawling Systems - Search Engines and Meta-search Engines * Intelligent Human-Web Interaction - Adaptive Web Interfaces - Context-Aware Computing - Learning User Profiles - Personalized Interfaces - Personalized Web Sites - Remembrance Agents - Multimedia Representation - Visualization of Information and Knowledge - Social and Psychological Issues * Web Support Systems - Information Retrieval Support Systems - Web Site Navigation Support Systems - Recommender Support Systems - Web-Based Decision Support Systems - Soft Computing (including neural networks, fuzzy logic, evolutionary computation, rough sets, and granular computing) and Uncertainty Management for WI * Intelligent e-Technology - Business Intelligence - Digital Library - Decentralized Community Communication Techniques - e-Community - e-Business and e-Commerce - e-Finance - e-Government - e-Learning - e-Publishing - e-Science - Intelligent Enterprise Portals - Web-Based Direct Marketing and CRM - Web-Based EDI - Web Security, Integrity, Privacy and Trust ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ On-Line Submissions and Publication ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ High-quality papers in all WI related areas are solicited.
