      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 2007 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence
      (WI'07) will be jointly held with the 2007 IEEE/WIC/ACM International
      Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT'07), the 2007 IEEE
      International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM'07),
      and the 2007 IEEE International Conference on Granular Computing
      (GrC'07) for providing synergism among the four research areas. It
      will provide opportunities for technical collaboration beyond that of
      previous conferences. The four 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 four conferences. We are also planning a joint panel and joint
      paper sessions that discuss common problems in the four areas.

      +++++++++++
      Highlights
      +++++++++++

      The conference will be held in Silicon Valley, California. Many
      high-tech companies and three distinguished universities (Stanford,
      UC Berkely and UCSC) are just around the corner. The highlight of the
      conference is that a unique forum consisting of a half-day industry/
      demo track and free discussion will be organized to link industries
      and academics. Leading IT companies like IBM, Google, and Yahoo etc
      will present at the conference.

      The area now known as Silicon Valley has been a center of
      technological development since the 1950's. The name Silicon Valley
      stems from the early 1970's, when the area had become the center for
      many semiconductor companies. While still hosting semiconductor and
      microprocessor companies, the region now hosts the headquarters of
      high tech companies of every kind, including many of the best known
      and most prestigious names in personal computers, Web search, Internet
      auctions, networking, storage, databases, etc.

      Submissions accepted as regular papers will be allocated 7 pages in the
      proceedings and accorded oral presentation times in the main conference.
      Submissions accepted as short papers will be allocated 4
      pages in the proceedings and will have a shorter presentation time at
      the conference than regular papers.

      All co-authors will be notified at all time, for the submission,
      notification, and confirmation on the attendance. Submitting a paper
      to the conference and workshops means that, if the paper is accepted,
      at least one author should attend the conference to present the
      paper. The acceptance list and no-show list will be openly published
      on-line. For no-show authors, their affiliations will receive a
      notification.

      A selected number of WI'07 accepted papers will be expanded and
      revised for inclusion in Web Intelligence and Agent Systems: An
      International Journal (http://wi-consortium.org/journal.html) and in
      Annual Review of Intelligent Informatics
      (http://www.wi-consortium.org/annual.html).

      ++++++++++++++++++++++++

      The best paper awards will be conferred at the conference on the
      authors of (1) the best research paper and (2) the best application
      paper. Application-oriented submissions will be considered for the
      best application paper award.

      The full author list and paper title will be announced on the
      Web Intelligence Consortium homepage:
      http://wi-consortium.org/html/wicawards.html

      ++++++++++++++++++++
      Industry/Demo-Track
      ++++++++++++++++++++

      We solicit Industry/Demo-Track papers by the following methods.

      (1) Industry papers of 4 pages can be submitted on the same schedule as
      the research track.
      (2) Separate 2 page demo proposals can submitted at a later schedule.
      (3) Full regular paper submissions can include a demo option.
      That is, a full paper submissions will be asked to
      specify if they would like to give a demonstration; choice of
      demonstrations (while utilizing information from the regular reviewing
      process) will be selected based on value as a demonstration.

      For options (1) and (2), please find more detailed instructions at
      the homepage: http://www.cs.sjsu.edu/wi07/wi/

      We are planning to arrange the Industry/Demo track in the afternoon of
