Lewis Johnson (University of Southern California, USA) Riichiro Mizoguchi (Osaka University, Japan) Prabhakar Raghavan (Verity Inc., USA) Patrick S. P. Wang (Northeastern University, USA) The 21st century is the age of Internet and World Wide Web. The Web revolutionizes the way we gather, process, and use information. At the same time, it also redefines the meanings and processes of business, commerce, marketing, finance, publishing, education, research, development, as well as other aspects of our daily life. Although individual Web-based information systems are constantly being deployed, advanced issues and techniques for developing and for benefiting from Web intelligence still remain to be systematically studied. Broadly speaking, Web Intelligence (WI) exploits AI and advanced information technology on the Web and Internet. It is the key and the most urgent research field of IT for business intelligence. The Asia-Pacific Conference on Web Intelligence (WI) is an international forum for researchers and practitioners (1) to present the state-of-the-art in the development of Web intelligence; (2) to examine performance characteristics of various approaches in Web-based intelligent information technology; (3) to cross-fertilize ideas on the development of Web-based intelligent information systems among different domains. By idea-sharing and discussions on the underlying foundations and the enabling technologies of Web intelligence, WI-2001 is expected to stimulate the future development of new models, new methodologies, and new tools for building a variety of embodiments of Web-based intelligent information systems. The Asia-Pacific Conference on Web Intelligence (WI) is a high-quality, high-impact biennial conference series. It will be jointly held with the Asia-Pacific Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT). TOPICS ====== WI-2001 welcomes submissions of original papers.

Maebashi, the capital of Gumma Prefecture, is called the `City of water, greenery, and poetry'. Maebashi is an `International Convention City' designated by the Ministry of Transportation. Maebashi and the neighboring areas in Gunma is a land of greenery blessed with the wonders of natural beauty and more than a hundred hot springs offering relaxation and peace of mind. WI-2001 and IAT-2001 will organize a tour during the conference to a resort hotel with hot spring in Ikaho that is one of the most famous hot springs areas in Japan. Maebashi is positioned nearly in the center of the Japan Archipelago. Only a hundred kilometers from Japan's capital city of Tokyo and reachable in an hour by bullet train or high-speed expressway, a variety of favorable land conditions lead to flourishing economic activity. Maebashi City and the neighboring areas in Gunma are expected to further develop into an IT conurbation with highly advanced information technology.
