The objective of the workshop is to invite authors to submit original manuscripts that demonstrate and explore current advances in all aspects of Web Wisdom. The workshop solicits novel papers on a broad range of topics, including but not limited to:

* Theories and Practices of Web Wisdom
* Computational Models for Web Wisdom
* Data Link and Semantic Link for Web Wisdom
* Text Mining and Semantic Organization
* Web Mining and Information Retrieval
* Web-based Cooperation Model
* Information Retrieval Models and Evaluations
* Ontology-Based Web Mining
* Ontology-Based Information Extraction and Retrieval
* Semantic Web
* Web Services
* Web Knowledge Flow
* Web Personalization
* Web Knowledge Services and Fusion
* Human-Web Interaction
* Web-based Learning
* Web Intelligence Application

Submission Requirements
