Web Intelligence 2019
18th IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence
Thessaloniki, Greece, 14th - 17th October 2019


You are invited to submit a workshop/special-session proposal as part of
the WI '19 conference

The 18th Web Intelligence conference (WI '19) will be held in
Thessaloniki (Greece)
during 14th to 17th of October 2019. Its organizing committee invites
proposals for workshops/special sessions to be held in conjunction with the
conference. The goals of the workshops are to explore emerging research
topics and to provide a forum for authors to present early research results
on these topics. We would like to have a number of workshops, with a high
quality program dominated by contributed papers. We expect that workshops
will run a rigorous review process, to make sure programs will be of
high-quality. 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.
