Call for Workshop and Special Session Proposals

The 2024 IEEE/WIC International Joint Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology (WI-IAT'24) will be held in Venice, Italy, from 10th to 12th December 2024. Its organizing committee invites proposals for workshops/special sessions to be held in conjunction with the conference. The goals of the workshops/special sessions 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/special sessions, with a high quality program dominated by contributed papers. We expect that workshops/special sessions will run a rigorous review process, to make sure programs will be of high-quality. Organizers may structure workshops/special sessions as they see fit, possibly including invited talks, panel discussions, presentations of work in progress, peer-reviewed papers, demonstrations, or some combination.

The topic falls in the general scope of WI-IAT 2024. There is a clear focus on a specific technology, problem or application. There should be a greater impact to the society. In particular, we encourage the submission of workshop/special-session proposals on:

  • Fairness in Web
  • Deep Learning/ML in the Web
