Web Intelligence and Agent Systems

Web Intelligence and Agent Systems: An International Journal is an official journal of Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC), 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 International Conference on Web Intelligence and the 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.
