Call for Research Papers (Download as a PDF)

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.
* Give doctoral students an opportunity to present their research to a 
friendly and knowledgeable audience and receive valuable feedback.
* 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. The call for 
WIMS 2016 tutorials will be published separately.
WIMS also offers its infrastructure and facilities for the organizers of 
satellite workshops that complement the scope of the conference. The 
call for WIMS 2016 workshops will also be published separately.
Companies or individuals interested in presenting their industrial 
products or methodologies are invited to contact the conference chairs.

Best Papers
The best research paper as well as the best young research paper will be 
honored with a special prize.
Selection of the best papers from the conference will be recommended for 
publication in an international journal.

Conference Scope
WIMS solicits regular and work-in-progress research, discussion papers

Submission Guidelines
Four types of submissions are solicited for the main conference:
i. Regular research papers;
ii. Short research papers;
iii. Case Studies and Applications papers;
iv. Posters
The papers in all the categories should describe original results that 
have not been accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere. All 
submissions will be evaluated by at least three members of the 
international program committee.

Regular Research Papers
The papers in this category are the reports on accomplished research 
work or in-depth discussions and analysis of a certain problem. The 
first type of papers can present a novel method, technique or analysis 
with appropriate empirical or other type of evaluation as a proof of 
validity. The main evaluation criteria for this category are 
originality, technical soundness, and the soundness of evaluation. For 
the second type within the genre we expect receiving reasonable 
overviews placing a problem onto the state-of-the-art landscape and 
analyzing how far current solutions fall short. We also expect in-depth 
discussions and analysis of a certain problem, with clear definitions 
and argumentation in terms of qualitative or quantitative representation 
of the main characteristics of the problem.
Page limit: 12 ACM pages
Short Research Papers
The papers in this category are the short reports of the preliminary 
results or describing the work in progress. The main evaluation criteria 
for this category are originality, technical correctness, and possible 
value of the planned results in a short to mid-term perspective.
Short papers can be also presented in a form of a poster.
Page limit: 6 ACM pages
Case Studies and Applications Papers
The papers in this category describe case studies of deployed 
applications, lessons learnt, and examples of measurable benefits. This 
category also includes papers that reports innovative applications of 
WIMS in areas of industry and government, as well as industrial 
experience and demonstrations of innovative systems.
Page limit: 12 ACM pages
WIMS poster track is a venue for late-breaking results, ongoing research 
activities, and speculative or innovative work in progress. This track 
is intended to provide authors and participants with the ability to 
connect with each other and to engage in discussions about the work. 
Posters provide authors with a unique opportunity to draw attention to 
their work during the conference.
Page limit: 4 ACM pages
Submissions should be made electronically in PDF or DOC/DOCX (MS/Open 
Word) format via the electronic submission system of the WIMS2016 
Conference Management system at:
Accepted papers/tutorials/posters will be published by ACM and 
disseminated through the ACM Digital Library through the International 
Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS).
Authors selected best papers from the conference will be invited to 
submit an expanded version for publication in an rank A international
