The Asia Pacific Web (APWeb) and Web-Age Information Management (WAIM) Joint International Conference on Web and Big Data (APWeb-WAIM) is aiming at attracting professionals of different communities related to Web and Big Data who have common interests in interdisciplinary research to share and exchange ideas, experience and the underlying techniques and applications, including Web technologies, database systems, information management, software engineering and big data. Starting in 2017, the two conference committees have agreed to launch a joint conference. With the increased focus on Big Data, the new joint conference is expected to attract more professionals from different industrial and academic communities, not only from the Asia Pacific countries but also from other continents.

The 4th APWeb-WAIM joint international conference on Web and Big Data 2020 will take place in Tianjin, China. Tianjin is one of China's four municipalities under the direct administration of central government. It is an international port city and the largest seaside city in the North of China. It is our sincere hope that you will make best of your time here to visit more places and enjoy more scenery and we believe you will harvest a lot.
