Various contents and services have emerged on the Web. User behaviors on the Web have diversified for being adapted the ramification; one of the important resources, such as social big data, are stemmed from the behaviors. Therefore, we need to pay attention to interaction among users, information, and systems in order to find fruitful ways for the Web use. Introducing various intelligent technologies such as recommendation and natural language processing is also another key aspect for tackling the ever-growing Web, with integrating with interactive technologies.
This workshop aims to bring together researchers to present and exchange ideas, results, and experiences in the field of Web intelligence, especially focusing on its interactive aspect. Not limited to technical topics, but we also welcome the report of user surveys and social media analysis.

The topics of the workshop include but not limited to:

information recommendation, user modeling, information visualization, social network analysis, web agent, interactive information retrieval, QA system, social data analysis, semantic Web, linked data, privacy-preserving technology, digital libraries, decision support systems, behavior analysis, entertainment computing, computer-supported collaboration, adaptive interface, creative support, e-learning.
