Web has evolved as an omnipresent system which highly impacts science, education, industry and everyday life. Web is now a vast data production and consumption platform at which threads of data evolve from multiple devices, by different human interactions, over worldwide locations under divergent distributed settings. Such a dynamic complex system demands adaptive intelligent solutions, which will advance knowledge, human interactions and innovation. Web intelligence is now a cutting edge area which must address all open issues towards deepening the understanding of all Web¡¯s entities, phenomena, and developments.

Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology (WI-IAT) aims to achieve a multi-disciplinary balance between research advances in theories and methods usually associated with collective intelligence, data science, human-centric computing, knowledge management, network science, autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. It is committed to addressing research that both deepen the understanding of computational, logical, cognitive, physical, and social foundations of the future Web, and enable the development and application of intelligent technologies. WI-IAT ¡¯20 provides a premier forum and features high-quality, original research papers and real-world applications in all theoretical and technology areas that make up the field of Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology. WI-IAT ¡¯20 welcomes research, application as well as Industry/Demo-Track paper submissions. Tutorial, Workshop and Special-Session proposals and papers are also welcome. WI-IAT ¡¯20 in Melbourne is officially sponsored by IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Intelligent Informatics (TCII), Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC), ACM-SIGAI, Swinburne University of Technology, Deakin University, and technically sponsored by University of Melbourne.

WI-IAT ¡¯20 will provide a broad forum that academia, professionals and industry people can exchange their ideas, findings and strategies in utilizing the power of human brains and man-made networks to create a better world. More specifically, the fields of how intelligence is impacting the Web of People, the Web of Data, the Web of Things, the Web of Trust, the Web of Agents, and emerging Web in health and smart living in the 5G Era.

The main theme for the WI-IAT '20 is "Web Intelligence = AI in the Connected World". It will also feature an industrial session, to embrace innovative concepts, architecture, evaluation and novel applications from industry.
