CALL FOR PAPERS
Web Intelligence and Agent Systems: An International Journal
Publisher: IOS Press
Home Page: http://wi-consortium.org/
Web Intelligence and Agent Systems: An International Journal (WIAS)
is an official journal of Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC, homepage:
http://wi-consortium.org/), an international organization dedicated to
promoting collaborative scientific research and industrial development
in the era of Web and agent intelligence. WIAS seeks to collaborate
with major societies and international conferences in the fields.
Presently, it has established a tie with the IEEE/WIC International
Conference on Web Intelligence and the IEEE/WIC International Conference
on Intelligent Agent Technology.
WIAS is a peer-reviewed journal, which publishes 4 issues a year, in
both electronic and hard copies.
WIAS aims to achieve a disciplinary balance between Web technology and
intelligent agent technology. It is committed to deepening the
understanding of computational, logical, cognitive, physical, and
social foundations as well as the enabling technologies for developing
and applying Web-based intelligence and autonomous agents systems.
The journal features high-quality, original research papers (including
state-of-the-art reviews), brief papers, and letters in all
theoretical and technology areas that make up the field of WIAS. The
papers should clearly focus on some of the following areas of
o Agent infrastructure and architecture
o Agent self-organization, learning, and adaptation
o Agent-based knowledge discovery
o Agent-mediated markets
o Autonomy-oriented or autonomic computing
o Cooperative problem solving
o Distributed intelligence and emergent behavior
o Emerging agent-based, Web-based systems and computing paradigms
o Evaluation and standards for agent-based Web intelligence technologies
o Knowlegde Grid and Grid intelligence
o Information ecology
o Knowledge management, networks, and communities
o Mediators and middleware
o Ontology engineering
o Personalization techniques
o Security issues in Web and agent systems
o Semantic Web, Web services and interoperability
o Ubiquitous computing and social intelligence
o Web information filtering and retrieval
o Web mining and farming
o Wisdom Web
WIAS Paper Submission Guidelines
Authors are invited to submit complete and original papers, which have
not been published elsewhere and are not currently under consideration
for another journal or conference.
Each manuscript prepared for WIAS must fall into one of the following
(1) Original research papers
Articles will be full-length papers (approximately 20 journal pages)
reporting well-defined theoretical results and empirical studies that
have potential impact on understanding of computational, logical,
cognitive, physical, and social foundations, as well as the enabling
technologies for developing and applying Web-based intelligence and
autonomous agents systems. It is assumed that the ideas presented are
important, have been well analyzed or empirically validated, and are
of value to Web and agent intelligence research community.
(2) State-of-the-art reviews
Articles can also be state-of-the-art reviews, which will be either
perspective tutorial articles in rapidly evolving fields or
comprehensive scholarly reviews of significant topics.
(3) Brief papers
A brief paper presents results that are important and original and are
presented in concise form.
A letter is used to convey only a few principal ideas or to comment on
work previously published in the WIAS.
The manuscripts submitted to WIAS are subjected to a rigorous review
process handled by the Editors-in-Chief and designated Editorial Board
All manuscripts for consideration must be submitted electronically
through an Electronic Submission Form, available from the Web
Intelligence Consortium (WIC) homepage at http://www.wi-consortium.org
(under "WIAS journal").
In order to facilitate the review process, authors are required to
mark the topics (within the Electronic Submission Form) to which their
submissions are most relevant.
