4th International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics
Thessaloniki, Greece, 2-4 June 2014

About WIMS?14 Conference
WIMS is a series of peer-reviewed International Computer Science conferences. It is a forum for researchers and practitioners to present their state-of-the-art results in building Intelligent Web, to examine performance characteristics of various approaches in Web-based intelligent information technology, and to cross-fertilize their ideas on the development of Web-based intelligent information management solutions across different domains.

The purpose of the WIMS series is:
- To provide a forum for established researchers and practitioners to present their contributions to the state
    of the art research and development in Web technology and applications
- To give doctoral students an opportunity to present their research to a friendly and knowledgeable
   audience and receive valuable feedback
- To provide an informal social event where Web technology researchers and practitioners can meet

WIMS traditionally hosts a small number of short tutorials on the topics related to the scope of the conference series. The role of a WIMS tutorial is to be a theme-oriented comprehensive survey. WIMS also offers its infrastructure and facilities for the organizers of satellite workshops that complement the scope of the conference. The calls for WIMS?14 Tutorials and Workshops are published separately.

Conference Scope
WIMS solicits regular and work-in-progress research, discussion papers and industry experience report papers in related fields. Papers exploring new directions or areas are also welcome. In particular but not exclusively the submissions within the following major areas are relevant:

- Scalable Web and Data Architectures and Infrastructures
- Web Intelligence
- Web Mining, Information and Knowledge Extraction
- Web Semantics and Reasoning
- WIMS Applications
- Evaluation and Validation of WIMS Technologies and Applications

Accepted papers/tutorials/posters will be published by ACM and disseminated through the ACM Digital Library through the International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS). A selection of the best WIMS'14 papers will be invited to be revised and extended for the post-conference publication in the Special Issue of the International Journal on Artificial Intelligence Tools (IJAIT).
