**********************************************************************

Web Intelligence (WI) has been recognized as a new direction for
scientific research and development to explore the fundamental roles
as well as practical impacts of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

(e.g., knowledge representation, planning, knowledge discovery and
data mining, intelligent agents, and social network intelligence) and
advanced Information Technology (IT) (e.g., wireless networks,
ubiquitous devices, social networks, and data/knowledge grids) on
the next generation of Web-empowered products, systems, services, and
activities. It is one of the most important as well as promising IT
research fields in the era of Web and agent intelligence.

The 2005 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence
(WI'05) will be jointly held with the 2005 IEEE/WIC/ACM International
Conference on Intelligent Agent Technology (IAT'05
http://www.comp.hkbu.edu.hk/IAT05/, http://www.hds.utc.fr/IAT05).
The IEEE/WIC/ACM 2005 joint conferences are sponsored and organized by
IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Computational
Intelligence (TCCI) (http://www.cs.uvm.edu/~xwu/tcci/index.shtml),
Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC) (http://wi-consortium.org), and
ACM-SIGART (http://www.acm.org/sigart/).
