Call for Workshops, Demonstrations and Tutorials proposal

The 6th International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics (WIMS'16) will be hosted by the LGI2P Research Center of "Ecole des mines d'Alès" (EMA), in the antique city of Nîmes in south of France. Its organizing committee invites proposals for Workshops, Demonstrations (on new applications) and Tutorials 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 the areas of interest to the Web Intelligence and Semantics community.

Workshops and tutorials provide a forum for an intensive 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 a half a day or a full day, depending on potential interest and organizers preference.

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

  • The topic falls in the general scope of WIMS 2016 (see the Call for Research 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 successful workshops and tutorials will be responsible for their own reviewing process, website, arranging invited speakers and co-ordinate the collection and delivery of camera ready material. There is an opportunity for papers accepted in workshops to be published in the WIMS`15 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 as those set for the main conference. Selected extended papers will be invited to appear in a special issue of a reputed journal in the field.

Please note that the submission format is MS Word or PDF. The papers must be written in English and formatted according to the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates (http://www.acm.org/publications/article-templates/proceedings-template.html).
