      **********************************************************************

      Web Intelligence (WI) has been recognized as a new direction for
      scientific research and development to explore the fundamental roles
      as well as practical impacts of Artificial Intelligence (AI)
      (e.g., knowledge representation, planning, knowledge discovery and
      data mining, intelligent agents, and social network intelligence) and
      advanced Information Technology (IT) (e.g., wireless networks,
      ubiquitous devices, social networks, and data/knowledge grids) on
      the next generation of Web-empowered products, systems, services, and
      activities. It is one of the most important as well as promising IT
      research fields in the era of Web and agent intelligence.

      The 2006 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence
      (WI'06) will be jointly held with the 2006 IEEE/WIC/ACM International
      Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT'06) and the 6th IEEE
      International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM'06) for providing
      synergism among the three research areas. It will provide
      opportunities for technical collaboration beyond that of previous
      conferences. The three 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
      three conferences. We are also planning a joint panel and joint paper
      sessions that discuss common problems in the three areas.
