      Call for Workshop Proposals

      The 2011 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conferences on Web Intelligence
      and Intelligent Agent Technology

      August 22-27, 2011, Lyon, France

      http://wi-iat-2011.org

      The Program Committees of the 2011 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint
      Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology
      (WI-IAT'11) invite proposals for Workshops. The Workshops will be
      held within the Conference, August, 22, 2011 at Lyon, France.

      The main goal of the WI-IAT'11 workshops is to stimulate and
      facilitate active exchange, interaction and comparison of approaches,
      methods and ideas related to specific topics, both theoretical and
      applied, in the general areas related to Web Intelligence and
      Intelligent Agent Technology. The workshops will provide an informal
      setting where participants will have the opportunity to discuss
      specific technical topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active
      exchange of ideas.

      The workshop organizers will be responsible for advertising the
      workshop, forming the program committees, reviewing and selecting the
      papers, and guaranteeing a high quality worthy of the prestige and
      range of the Conference. All papers accepted for workshops will be
      included in the Workshop Proceedings published by IEEE Computer
      Society Press and will be available at the workshops.

      The workshop organizers will also have the discretion of editing
      selected papers (after their expansion and revision) into books or
      special journal issues. Workshops may be full-day or half-day. A
      full-day workshop should select 10-14 regular papers, while a half-day
      workshop should select 5-7 regular papers, from a large number of
      submissions. Submissions accepted as workshop papers will be allocated
      4 pages in the proceedings. The workshop organizers should ensure the
      presence of authors of accepted papers at the workshops. Optionally,
      the workshop may be started or concluded by a panel focusing on
      interesting aspects, controversial issues, or unsolved problems to
      stimulate lively, thoughtful, and thought-provoking debate; we expect
      the workshop organizers to actively engage the audience and help them
      gain a deeper understanding of the issues. The goal of a panel is to
      debate and thus panels should always reflect more than one point of
      view.


      Workshop Proposals Submission:
      -----------------------------

      Workshop organizers should submit their proposals (PDF) directly to
      the three Workshop Chairs via e-mail (see their email addresses
      below).

      Workshop proposals should include the following elements:

      - Title of the workshop
      - Names of workshop organizers, affiliation, mailing address and e-mail address
      - Short CV of organizers
      - A description of the topics of the workshop (not exceeding 200 words)
      - Type of the workshop (full-day or half-day)
      - A description of how the workshop will contribute to the field of
      Web Intelligence and/or Intelligent Agent Technology
      - A short description on how the workshop will be advertised
      so as to ensure a sufficiently wide range of authors and high quality papers
      - Information about previous offerings of the proposed workshop.

      Topics of Interest
      ------------------

      Each workshop subject will focus on new research challenges and
      initiatives in Web Intelligence (WI) and Intelligent Agent Technology
      (IAT). The workshops should provide an informal and vibrant forum for
      researchers and industry practitioners to share their research results
      and practical development experiences in these two fields. Suggested,
