      Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology
      (WI-IAT'07)

      Silicon Valley, USA, November 2-5, 2007.
      http://www.cs.sjsu.edu/wi07/

      *******************************************************************
      Workshop Proposals Due: ** March 20 **, 2007

      All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the Workshop
      Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press,
      which are indexed by EI.
      ===================================================================

      The Program Committees of the 2007 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint
      Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology
      (WI-IAT'07) invite proposals for Workshops. The Workshops will be
      held within the Conference, November 2-5, 2007 at Silicon Valley, USA.

      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 the 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 20-25 regular papers, while a half-day
      workshop should select 10-13 regular papers, from a large number of
      submissions. The workshop organizers should ensure the presence of
      authors of accepted papers at the workshops.

      I. Workshop Topics

      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,
      but not limited to, workshop topics include:

      - Intelligent E-Technology (including E-Science, E-Business,
      E-Learning, E-Finance, E-Government, E-Community)
      - Intelligent Human-Web Interaction
      - Knowledge Grids and Grid Intelligence
      - Semantics and Ontology Engineering
      - Social Networks and Social Intelligence
      - Ubiquitous Computing
      - Web Agents
      - Web Information Filtering and Retrieval
      - Web Mining and Farming
      - Web Security, Integrity, Privacy and Trust
      - Web Services and Grid Services
      - Web Support Systems
      - World Wide Wisdom Web (W4)
      - Agent Systems Modeling and Methodology
      - Autonomous Knowledge and Information Agents
      - Autonomous Auctions and Negotiation
      - Autonomy-Oriented Computing (AOC)
      - Learning and Self-Adapting Agents
      - Distributed Intelligence

      II. Workshop Proposal Submission

      Workshop proposals should include the following elements:

      - Title of the workshop
      - Your name, affiliation, mailing address and e-mail address
      - A description of the topic 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

      After the acceptance of a workshop proposal the organizer(s) should:

      - Create a "Call for papers/participation" for the workshop
      - Create a Web page for the workshop, the link of which will be published
      on the Conference Web site
      - Create a Board of Reviewers (Program Committee)
      - Review and select papers
      - Schedule the workshop activities

      Those papers selected by the organizer(s) will also be reviewed by
      the Workshop Co-Chairs for final acceptance.

      All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical
      quality, relevance, significance, and clarity.

      We will provide an online paper submission and review system
      to support the workshops.

      Workshop Co-Chairs:

      Vijay Raghavan, University of Louisiana
      E-mail: raghavan@...

      Yuefeng Li, Queensland University of Technology, Australia
      E-mail: y2.li@...

      Note: we will not have a separate workshop registration fee this year
      (i.e., only one conference registration covers everything).

      For your information, the WI-IAT'07 conference will be co-located with
      the IEEE International Conference on BioInformation and BioMedicine
      (BIBM'07) and 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 the joint
      opening, keynote, reception, and banquet. Attendees only need to
      register one conference and can attend sessions across the four
      conferences. We are planning to have a joint panel and joint paper
      sessions that discuss common problems in the four areas.
    Your message has been successfully submitted and would be delivered to recipients shortly.
