As the Web continues to grow and evolve, many new problems and challenges 
are being introduced. The WI-IAT workshops aim to provide researchers who 
share similar research interests to meet and address new research challenges 
and initiatives that concern Web Intelligence (WI) and Intelligent Agent 
Technology (IAT). The Workshops provide a venue and forum for contributions 
in specialized sub-areas of Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology, 
and allowing authors to present new and emerging trends in methods and 
technologies to dedicated audiences. 

Following the great success of WI-IAT'01 held in Maebashi City, Japan, 
WI-IAT'03 held in Halifax, Canada, WI-IAT'04 held in Beijing, China, 
WI-IAT'05 in Compiegne, France, WI-IAT'06 held in Hong Kong, WI-IAT'07 
held in Silicon Valley USA, WI-IAT'08 held in Sydney, Australia, and 
WI-IAT'09 held in Milano, Italy.

WI-IAT'10 will provide a leading international forum for researchers 
and practitioners to present the state-of-the-art WI-IAT technologies;
examine performance characteristics of various approaches in WI and IAT; 
and cross-fertilize ideas on the development of WI and IAT. 

By idea-sharing and discussions on the underlying foundations and the
enabling technologies of WI and IAT, 2010 WI-IAT Workshops will
capture current important developments of new models, new
methodologies and new tools for building a variety of embodiments of
WI or IAT systems.  As an important part of the conference, the
workshop program will focus on new research challenges and
initiatives.  All papers accepted for workshops will be included in
the Workshop Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press
that are indexed by EI, and will be available at the
workshops. Detailed information is available at the conference
homepage.

Workshop Proposal Submission
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Workshop organizers should submit their proposals (PDF or Word files) directly 
to both Workshop Chairs via e-mail.

Workshop proposals should include the following elements:

- Title of the workshop
- Names of workshop organizers, affiliation, mailing address and e-mail address
- A description of the topics of the workshop (not exceeding 200 words)
- Type of the workshop (full-day or half-day)
- A description of how the workshop will contribute to the field of
  Web Intelligence and/or Intelligent Agent Technology
- A short description on how the workshop will be advertised so as
  to ensure a sufficiently wide range of authors and high quality papers

+++++++++++++++++++
Workshop Organizers
+++++++++++++++++++

The workshop organizers will be responsible for advertising the
workshop, forming the program committees, reviewing and selecting the
papers, and guaranteeing a high quality worthy of the prestige and
range of the Conference.  All papers accepted for workshops will be
included in the Workshop Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society
Press and will be available at the workshops.

The workshop organizers will also have the discretion of editing
selected papers (after their expansion and revision) into books or
special journal issues.  Workshops may be full-day or half-day. A
full-day workshop should select 16-22 regular papers, while a half-day
workshop should select 8-11 regular papers, from a large number of
submissions.  The workshop organizers should ensure the presence of
authors of accepted papers at the workshops.

After the acceptation of a workshop proposal the organizer(s) should:

- Create a "Call for papers/participation" for the workshop
- Create a Web page for the workshop, the link of which will be published
  on the Conference Web site
- Create a Board of Reviewers (Program Committee)
- Review and select papers
- Schedule the workshop activities

Those papers selected by a workshop organizer will also be reviewed by
the Workshop Chairs for final acceptance.

All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical
quality, relevance, significance, and clarity.

The conference will provide an online paper submission and review system
to support the workshops.

+++++++++++++++++++
Topics of Interest
+++++++++++++++++++

Each workshop subject will focus on new research challenges and
initiatives in Web Intelligence (WI) and Intelligent Agent Technology
(IAT).  The workshops should provide an informal and vibrant forum for
researchers and industry practitioners to share their research results
and practical development experiences in these two fields.  Suggested,
but not limited to, workshop topics include:

- Intelligent e-Technology (including e-Science, e-Business, 
              e-Things and e-Activities, e-Learning, e-Finance, 
              e-Medicine, e-Government, e-Community)
