*WIMS'11 Flyer* <http://wims.vestforsk.no/wims-flyer.pdf>

 The International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics
(WIMS'11) will be organised under the auspices of Western Norway Research
Institute, Sogndal, Norway.

This is the first in a new series of conferences concerned with intelligent
approaches to transform the World Wide Web into a global reasoning and
semantic-driven computing machine. Next conferences in this series, WIMS'12
and WIMS'13, will take place in Craiova (Romania) and Madrid (Spain)

*Research Papers *

WIMS'11 is intended to foster the dissemination of state-of-the-art research
in the area of Web intelligence, Web mining, Web semantics and the
fundamental interaction between them.

Authors are invited to submit full papers on all related areas. Papers
exploring new directions or areas will receive a thorough and encouraging
review. Areas of interest include, but not limited to:

    Semantic-driven Information Retrieval

Submissions must be in ACM format for conference proceedings. The conference
adopts a double blind review process, where neither authors nor reviewers
know each others' identities. Accepted papers will be published by ACM and
disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.
*Tutorials/Demonstration Proposals*
WIMS'11 also welcomes Tutorial and/or Demonstration proposals. WIMS'11 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.

Only short (2 hours) tutorials will be considered. The tutorials will be
part of the main conference technical program.

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.

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. Accepted
contributions will be published in electronic form and are limited to 2

How to submit
The maximum length of

   - research papers is at most 12 pages in ACM format
   - tutorial/demonstration proposal is at most 12 pages in ACM format
   - poster is at most 2 pages in ACM format

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

Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend the conference and present
their work. Selected extended papers will be invited to appear in a special
issues of reputed journals in the field.

Tutorial/demonstration proposals, poster papers and full research paper
submissions must be made electronically in MS Word or PDF format through the
EasyChair submission system at
