The Web has revolutionized the way we seek information on all aspects of education, entertainment, business, health and so on. The Web has evolved into a publishing medium, global electronic market and increasingly, a platform for conducting electronic commerce. A part of this success can be attributed to the tremendous advances made in the Artificial Intelligence field. The popularity of the Web has opened many opportunities to develop smart Web-based systems using artificial intelligence techniques. There exist numerous Web technology and applications that can benefit with the application of artificial intelligence techniques. It is not possible to cover them all in one book with a required degree of quality, depth and width. We present this book to discuss some important Web developments by using artificial intelligence techniques in the areas of Web personalisation, semantic Web and Web services. The primary readers of this book are undergraduate/postgraduate students, researchers and practitioners in information technology and computer science related areas. The success of this book is largely due to the collective efforts of a great team consisting of authors and reviewers. We are grateful to them for their vision and wonderful support. The final quality of selected papers reflects their efforts. Finally we would like to thank the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane Australia and University of South Australia, Adelaide Australia for providing us the resources and time to undertake this task. We extend our sincere thanks to Scientific Publishing Services Pvt. Ltd., for the editorial support.
