 The 2009 International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and
Computational Intelligence (AICI'09)
               7-8 November 2009, Shanghai, China

           *** Submission Deadline: 10 May 2009 ***

                     Call for Papers
The 2009 International Conference on Web Information Systems and Mining
(WISM'09) and the 2009 International Conference on Artificial Intelligence

Computational Intelligence (AICI'09) will be jointly held at Shanghai,

in November 7-8,2009. WISM'09-AICI'09 aims to provide a high-level
international forum for scientists and researchers to present the state of

art of web information systems, web mining, artificial intelligence,
computational intelligence, with their applications for addressing world
problems of various kinds. WISM'09-AICI'09 is multi-disciplinary in which

wide range of theory and methodologies are being investigated and

developed to
tackle complex and challenging problems.

All accepted papers will appear in conference proceedings published by the
Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and the IEEE,
respectively. (All accepted papers at WISM'09-AICI'09 are indexed by EI

ISTP). Selected good papers will be recommended for publication in EI/SCI
indexed international journals.
