      Hi all

      - In a "telegraphic style" about Web Intelligence -

      There are  few top challenging objectives in the sustainable development of  the human culture, one of them is the understanding intelligence and the development of  intelligent human-supporting intelligent entities.

      The web technologies is the new very promising platform for such task.

      - At present, the problem of a web intelligence can be seen as:
      •  an autonomous intelligence of different portals,
      •  distributed/networked intelligence - a cooperation, e-learning supporting,
      •  and as AI technologies applied for enhancing of networking qualities.
      - From the functional perspective, it can be used  for  user - portal/blog  communication, for the  satisfaction of  visitor  requests, as well as for the satisfaction of the portal/(web-site) owners.
      In general, Web Intelligence can be visible or not visible for the Internet users/visitors.

      - From the developers perspective, WI is an activity and research field in its initial phase of the development,
       therefore, initially assumed web-based intelligence models are crucial for their implementation, application fields and range, and their usability, it means their future success. 
      Shortly speaking,  a well motivated model of  abstract intelligent agent and  the methodology of its goal-oriented specialization are always essential. 

      - From the socio-techno-cultural perspective, WI entities (such as: agent, agent organization) may
      manage human information bases, knowledge bases and specific preferences bases (task-oriented) in different scales, on the different abstraction level of interest, and from different perspectives.

      The socio-techno-cultural consequences of WI development is unforeseen,  we may only notice that, up to now,  any large-scale past futuristic vision  was never true, ... and we should  also remember that new promising technologies always produce new socio-cultural "pathologies".

      Extending this particular viewpoint we arrive to the "kingdom of philosophy", the computational philosophy is the domain of intelligence limits simulation, as well as, the grown - as the critical aspects  of living systems, needs systemic network models, and finally, they all could be "naturally" implemented  using the web technologies.

      -  All above mentioned aspects are included in the detailed topic list of  IEEE/WIC/ACM WI 2008 & Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT-08), two worldwide very challenging conferences, see below.

      Best regards

      WI 2008 provides a leading international forum of scientific research
      and development to explore the fundamental roles as well as practical
      impacts of Artificial Intelligence (e.g., knowledge representation,
      planning, knowledge discovery and data mining, intelligent agents, and
      social network intelligence) and advanced Information Technology
      (e.g., wireless networks, ubiquitous devices, social networks, and
      data/knowledge grids) on the next generation of Web-empowered
      products, systems, services, and activities.

      WI 2008 will be jointly held with the 2008 IEEE/WIC/ACM International
      Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT-08)
      .  The two
      conferences will have a joint opening, keynote, reception, and
      banquet. Attendees only need to register for one conference and can
      attend workshops, sessions, tutorials, panels, exhibits and
      demonstrations across the two conferences. We are also planning a
      joint panel, joint paper sessions, and doctor symposium that discuss
      common problems in the two areas.
