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
    To give doctoral students an opportunity to present their research to a friendly and knowledgeable audience and receive valuable feedback
    To 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. WIMS also offers its infrastructure and facilities for the organizers of satellite workshops that complement the scope of the conference. The calls for WIMS’2018 Tutorials and Workshops are 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 a special issue of an international journal.
