      >As the Web continues to grow and evolve, many new problems and
      >challenges are being introduced. The WI-IAT workshops aim to provide
      >researchers who share similar research interests to meet and address
      >new research challenges and initiatives that concern Web Intelligence
      >(WI) and Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT). The Workshops provide a
      >venue and forum for contributions in specialized sub-areas of Web
      >Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology, and allowing authors to
      >present new and emerging trends in methods and technologies to
      >dedicated audiences.
      >
      >Following the great successes of WI-IAT'01 held in Maebashi City, Japan,
      >WI-IAT'03 held in Halifax, Canada, WI-IAT'04 held in Beijing, China,
      >WI-IAT'05 in Compiegne, France, WI-IAT'06 held in Hong Kong, WI-IAT'07
      >held in Silicon Valley USA, WI-IAT'08 held in Sydney, Australia,
      >WI-IAT'09 held in Milano, Italy, WI-IAT'10 Canada and WI-IAT'11
      >France.
      >
      >WI-IAT'12 will provide a leading international forum for researchers
      >and practitioners to present the state-of-the-art WI-IAT technologies;
      >examine performance characteristics of various approaches in WI and
      >IAT; and cross-fertilize ideas on the development of WI and IAT.
      >
      >By idea-sharing, brain-storming and discussions on the underlying
      >foundations and the
      >enabling technologies of WI and IAT, 2012 WI-IAT Workshops will
      >capture current important developments of new models, new
      >methodologies and new tools for building a variety of embodiments of
      >WI or IAT systems. As an important part of the conference, the
      >workshop program will focus on new research challenges and
      >initiatives. All papers accepted for workshops will be included in
      >the Workshop Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press
      >that are indexed by EI, and will be available at the
      >workshops. Detailed information is available at the conference
