About

The 2nd International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics (WIMS'12) is organised under the auspices of University of Craiova. The site for the previous edition, WIMS'11, can be found here.

This is the second in a new series of conferences concerned with intelligent approaches to transform the World Wide Web into a global reasoning and semantics-driven computing machine. Then next conference in this series, WIMS'13 will take place in Madrid (Spain).

Call for Tutorial Proposals

WIMS'12 also welcomes Tutorial and/or Demonstration proposals. WIMS'12 will include tutorials and/or demonstrations (on new applications) providing in-depth background on subjects that are of broad interest to the Web mining and Web semantics community. This track aims to foster interaction and collaboration among participating practitioners and academics, and to provide developers with a place to showcase new practical implementations of state-of-the-art systems in the areas of interest to the Web Intelligence and Semantics community.

The tutorials will be part of the main conference technical program. Proposal papers must be no less than 5 pages and no more than 12 pages, and must provide a sense of both the scope of the tutorial and depth within the scope.

First page of the proposals should include contact information (name, email, address, telephone number, and FAX number) and a brief bio of the presenters. If the proposed tutorial has been given previously, the proposal should include where the tutorial has been given and how it will be modified for WIMS'12. The intended length of the tutorial (1 or 2 or 3 hours) should also be indicated, together with justification that a high-quality presentation will be achieved within the chosen time period and the indication of the main learning outcomes.

Demonstrations will be an opportunity for showcasing innovative Semantic Web related implementations and technologies.

Submitted tutorial/demonstration papers will be reviewed prior to publication, and may be rejected for publication, if either the technical quality of the paper is insufficient or the content of the paper does not match the content of the tutorial. Tutorial/Demonstration papers will be published in the conference proceedings as part of the ACM International Proceedings Series and will be disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.

Please note that the submission format is MS Word or PDF. The papers must be written in English and formatted according to the ACM guidelines. Author instructions and style files can be downloaded at
