Download Call for Workshops, Tutorials and Demonstrations Proposals

The 8th International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics (WIMS'18) will be hosted by the Department of Mathematics and Informatics, Faculty of Sciences, University of Novi Sad, Serbia. Its organizing committee invites proposals for workshops, tutorials and demonstrations (on new applications) to be held in conjunction with the conference. The overall purpose of workshops and tutorials is to provide participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel research ideas in areas of Web intelligence, Web mining and Web semantics, with a particular emphasis on the fundamental interaction between these vibrant fields of research and development. The purpose of demonstrations is to provide developers with a place to showcase new practical and innovative implementations of state-of-the-art systems in areas of interest to the Web Intelligence and Semantics community.

Workshops and tutorials provide a forum for an intense and focused scientific exchange amongst researchers and practitioners interested in a particular topic and a meeting venue for the community. Organizers may structure workshops/tutorials as they see fit, possibly including invited talks, panel discussions, presentations of work in progress, peer-reviewed papers, demonstrations, or some combination. A workshop/tutorial could be scheduled for half a day or a full day, depending on potential interest and organizers’ preference.

Workshops, tutorials and demonstrations should address topics that satisfy the following criteria:

  • The topic falls in the general scope of WIMS 2018 (see the Call for Papers),
  • There is a clear focus on a specific theme, technology, problem, or application,
  • There is a sufficiently large audience interested in the topic.

The organizers of accepted workshops and tutorials will be responsible for their own reviewing process, website, arranging invited speakers and coordinating the collection and delivery of camera-ready material.

There is an opportunity for papers accepted in workshops/tutorials/demonstrations to be published in the WIMS’18 proceedings and disseminated through the ACM Digital Library, provided they follow the ACM submission guidelines and template, and adhere to camera-ready submission and registration deadlines set for the main conference (for tutorials/demonstrations, the papers can be based on the proposal). Selected extended papers will be invited to appear in a special issue of a reputed journal in the field. The papers must be written in English and formatted according to the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates.
