               ====================================
  
 Web Intelligence and Agent Systems: An International Journal (WIAS) 
 is an official journal of Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC, homepage:
 http://wi-consortium.org/), an international organization dedicated to
 promoting collaborative scientific research and industrial development
 in the era of Web and agent intelligence. WIAS seeks to collaborate
 with major societies and international conferences in the fields. 
 Presently, it has established a tie with the IEEE/WIC International 
 Conference on Web Intelligence and the IEEE/WIC International Conference 
 on Intelligent Agent Technology.
  
 WIAS is a peer-reviewed journal, which publishes 4 issues a year, in
 both electronic and hard copies.
  
 WIAS aims to achieve a disciplinary balance between Web technology and
 intelligent agent technology. It is committed to deepening the
 understanding of computational, logical, cognitive, physical, and
 social foundations as well as the enabling technologies for developing
 and applying Web-based intelligence and autonomous agents systems.
  
 The journal features high-quality, original research papers (including
 state-of-the-art reviews), brief papers, and letters in all
 theoretical and technology areas that make up the field of WIAS. The
 papers should clearly focus on some of the following areas of
 interest:
  
    o Agent infrastructure and architecture 
    o Agent self-organization, learning, and adaptation 
    o Agent-based knowledge discovery 
    o Agent-mediated markets 
    o Autonomy-oriented or autonomic computing 
    o Cooperative problem solving 
    o Distributed intelligence and emergent behavior 
    o Emerging agent-based, Web-based systems and computing paradigms 
    o Evaluation and standards for agent-based Web intelligence technologies 
    o Knowlegde Grid and Grid intelligence  
    o Information ecology 
    o Knowledge management, networks, and communities 
    o Mediators and middleware 
    o Ontology engineering 
    o Personalization techniques 
    o Security issues in Web and agent systems 
    o Semantic Web, Web services and interoperability 
    o Ubiquitous computing and social intelligence 
    o Web information filtering and retrieval 
    o Web mining and farming 
    o Wisdom Web 
  
 WIAS Paper Submission Guidelines
 ================================
  
 Authors are invited to submit complete and original papers, which have
 not been published elsewhere and are not currently under consideration
 for another journal or conference.
  
 Each manuscript prepared for WIAS must fall into one of the following
 categories:
  
  (1) Original research papers 
  
  Articles will be full-length papers (approximately 20 journal pages)
  reporting well-defined theoretical results and empirical studies that
  have potential impact on understanding of computational, logical,
  cognitive, physical, and social foundations, as well as the enabling
  technologies for developing and applying Web-based intelligence and
  autonomous agents systems.  It is assumed that the ideas presented are
  important, have been well analyzed or empirically validated, and are
  of value to Web and agent intelligence research community.
  
  (2) State-of-the-art reviews 
  
  Articles can also be state-of-the-art reviews, which will be either
  perspective tutorial articles in rapidly evolving fields or
  comprehensive scholarly reviews of significant topics.
  
  (3) Brief papers
  
  A brief paper presents results that are important and original and are
  presented in concise form.
  
  (4) Letters 
  
  A letter is used to convey only a few principal ideas or to comment on
  work previously published in the WIAS.
  
 The manuscripts submitted to WIAS are subjected to a rigorous review
 process handled by the Editors-in-Chief and designated Editorial Board
 Member(s).
  
 All manuscripts for consideration must be submitted electronically
 through an Electronic Submission Form, available from the Web
 Intelligence Consortium (WIC) homepage at http://www.wi-consortium.org
 (under "WIAS journal").
  
 In order to facilitate the review process, authors are required to
 mark the topics (within the Electronic Submission Form) to which their
 submissions are most relevant.
