About the Conference
The 2023 IEEE/WIC
International Conference on
Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology (WI-IAT'23) 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, hybrid WI-IAT'21 and WI-IAT'22 during the global pandemic,
WI-IAT'23 will be held in Venice, Italy, 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'23 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'23 welcomes research, application as well as Industry/Demo paper submissions. Tutorial, Workshop and
Special-Session proposals and papers are also welcome. WI-IAT'23 in Venice (Italy) is officially sponsored by
IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Intelligent Informatics (TCII) and Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC).
WI-IAT'23 will provide a broad forum that academia,
professionals and industry people can exchange their ideas, findings and strategies
in deepening the understanding of all Web's entities, phenomena, and developments
in utilizing the power of human brains and man-made networks to create a better world.
More specifically, the fields of how artificial intelligence is impacting the Web of People,
the Web of Data, the Web of Things, the Web of Trust, the Web of Agents, the Web of Everything, and emerging FAccT in WI-IAT.
Therefore, “Web Intelligence = AI in the Connected World”.
