About the Conference

The 2022 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology (WI-IAT'22) provides a premier international forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from diverse fields for presentation of original research results, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative and practical development experiences on Web intelligence and intelligent agent technology research and applications.

The first international conference of Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology (WI-IAT'01) was held in Maebashi, Japan, 2001. Then, it followed by WI-IAT'03 in Halifax, Canada, WI-IAT'04 in Beijing, China, WI-IAT'05 in Compiegne, France, WI- IAT '06 in Hong Kong, WI-IAT'07 in Silicon Valley, USA, WI-IAT'08 in Sydney, Australia, WI-IAT'09 in Milano, Italy, WI-IAT'10 in Toronto, Canada, WI-IAT'11 in Lyon, France, WI-IAT'12 in Macau, China, WI-IAT'13 in Atlanta, USA, WI-IAT'14 in Warsaw, Poland, and WI-IAT'15 in Singapore. The goal of WI-IAT conferences is to provide a global forum for scientists, engineers and educators to present the latest WI-IAT technologies, discuss how to develop future intelligent systems for complex applications. After these years, in 2016, WI-IAT conferences have been merged as one brand (WI'16 in Omaha, USA, WI'17 in Leipzig, Germany, WI'18 in Santiago de Chile, and WI'19 in Thessaloniki, Greece) by redefining and vitalizing the WI aims and topics. In recognition of the strong connection of Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology, the classic brand of WI-IAT was resumed in 2020. After the great successful online WI-IAT'20 and hybrid WI-IAT'21 during the global pandemic, WI-IAT'22 will be held in Niagara Falls, Canada, and once again, in the hybrid mode.

Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology (WI-IAT) aims to achieve a multi-disciplinary balance between research advances in theories and methods usually associated with collective intelligence, data science, human-centric computing, knowledge management, network science, autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. It is committed to addressing research that both deepen the understanding of computational, logical, cognitive, physical, and social foundations of the future Web, and enable the development and application of intelligent technologies. WI-IAT'22 provides a premier forum and features high-quality, original research papers and real-world applications in all theoretical and technology areas that make up the field of Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology. WI-IAT'22 welcomes research, application as well as Industry/Demo-Track paper submissions. Tutorial, Workshop and Special-Session proposals and papers are also welcome. WI-IAT'22 in Niagara Falls is officially sponsored by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Intelligent Informatics (TCII), Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC), ACM-SIGAI, Wilfrid Laurier University, and York University.

WI-IAT'22 will provide a broad forum that academia, professionals and industry people can exchange their ideas, findings and strategies in utilizing the power of human brains and man-made networks to create a better world. More specifically, the fields of how intelligence is impacting the Web of People, the Web of Data, the Web of Things, the Web of Trust, the Web of Agents, and emerging Web in health and smart living in the 5G Era. Therefore, the theme of WI-IAT'22 will be “Web Intelligence = AI in the Connected World”.
