WIS 2005
1st International Symposium on Web Intelligence and Security
in conjunction with
8th Joint Conference on Information Sciences
(JCIS 2005)
July 21 - 26, 2005, Salt Lake City, Utah

Call for Papers

Information on the Web is vast and yet mostly unstructured. To retrieve and store the needed information in an efficient and secure way calls for research that draws upon areas like Artificial Intelligence, Security, Agent Technologies, Distributed Computing, Databases, Semantic Web, and others. Web applications that meet the needs of users can draw from progress made in areas such as autonomic computing and adapting, self-organizing agents among others. As the importance of designing security into systems from the very beginning becomes widely accepted, the question arises how the progress that has been made in theoretical and practical aspects of design and implementation of secure systems will influence the design of intelligent, Web-based systems.

The 1st International Symposium on Web Intelligence and Security solicits the submission of original work in progress, innovative ideas, experimental results, and completed projects of Web intelligence and Web security. Papers that explore the state-of-the-art and future direction of intelligent Web systems in the context of security concerns are especially welcome.
