Written by Marcin Szczuka   

2010 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conferences on

Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology

The Third WI-IAT Doctoral Workshop

York University, Toronto Canada, August 31, 2010

Call for Contributions



Following the successful first Doctoral Workshop at WI-IAT'08 in Sydney and second Workshop at WI-IAT'09 in Milan, we  invite contributions to its third edition. This one-day doctoral workshop will have a strong focus on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology, and covers some recent and trendy topics and applications. During the Workshop, doctoral students will be invited to share their current thesis work-in-progress with their peers and with an international panel of academic staff.
The aims of the Doctoral Workshop include:

  • To provide an opportunity for research/graduate students to interact closely with established researchers in their fields, receive feedback on their work and get advice on managing their careers.
  • To present the ongoing doctoral projects and discuss possibilities of development for new ones.
  • To provide a forum for interaction between students/young researchers from different countries and following different programmes. To stimulate interchange of ideas and knowledge between them in an attempt to broaden and enrich their pursuit for scientific excellence in the area of WI-IAT.
  • To discuss on challenging problems and large projects in different countries, and potential commercial projects.

Much effort will be devoted to bringing together in one place both rookie and experienced researchers, and to stimulating a vivid discussion and exchange of ideas. Several established researchers in the areas of WI and IAT will be invited to participate and discuss with younger colleagues.
The workshop will consist of several presentations by contributing authors. The length and distribution of presentations will depend on number and topics of contributions. The organisers plan to provide sufficient amount of time for questions as well as formal and informal discussion.

Proceedings and post-workshop publications

The Workshop proceedings volume will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press, to be indexed by EI. All accepted contributions will be included in the
volume. Doctoral workshop has the same status as all other WI-IAT 2010 workshops.
Also, the authors of most interesting projects who already have results ready to publish may get the recommendation and support from members of Workshop Committee to submit their work to leading journals in the field.

Submission procedure and instructions for Authors

All types of doctoral students are eligible to submit description of their projects to Doctoral Workshop. No preference is made with respect to the scientific field they represent as long as the project they present is relevant to the WI-IAT topics. As the contributions are supposed to explain the current work, they shall include clearly defined motivation, reference to related work, research problems/questions, approach used, description of contributions and prospects for future work.
All submitted papers will be reviewed by program committee members on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity.
Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 4 pages (only one additional page is allowed and extra payment is required for the additional page).  The papers must be in English and should be formatted according to the IEEE 2-column format (see the Author Guidelines at
The workshop only accepts on-line submissions. Please use the Workshop Submission Page on the WI-IAT'2010 website to submit your paper. The authors of accepted contributions will be asked to submit final version and register for the conference. In addition, they may be asked to provide organisers with
short CV and/or the letter of support/recommendation from the supervisor/advisor of their doctoral programme.
The Organisers wish to encourage all students pursuing their doctoral research to submit their contributions. We also encourage advisors/supervisors of doctoral students to direct their young co-workers towards this event. In particular, participation in the Doctoral Workshop may be a very good addition to taking part in the main WI-IAT as well as other workshops.
