Apologies for multiple postings. -------------------------------------------------------------------- ISWC WORKSHOPS ============== The ISWC 2007 Program Committee invites proposals for the Workshop Program of ISWC 2007, the Sixth International Semantic Web Conference, to be held November 11-15, 2007, in Busan, Korea. Workshops will be held on 11-12 November. GOALS ===== The purpose of the workshops is to provide an informal setting for workshop participants to discuss technical issues, to exchange research ideas, and to develop a community in the quickly emerging field of the Semantic Web. We are looking for workshops that encourage discussions on social and business requirements and how semantic web technologies can be made easier to deploy and operationalize in real world scenarios. These workshops are expected to complement those that focus on fundamental research issues and multi-disciplinary topics. Workshop proposals should address current issues related to the Semantic Web that will benefit from small-group information exchange and discussion. Workshops are intended to be genuine interactive events and not mini-conferences. We welcome workshops with creative structures and organizations that attract various types of contributions and ensure rich interactions. We expect to have a wide range of workshops, including those that - focus on a specific domain of activity, e.g., finance, telecom, life science, digital government, etc. - investigate social and collaborative issues and best practices with respect to constructing and publishing Semantic Web knowledge structures, - focus on fundamental research issues, - discuss multi-disciplinary topics that bring together researchers from different disciplines, - support the interaction of research and industry for the deployment and operationalization of Semantic Web applications. SCHEDULE ======== March 12, 2007: Workshop proposals due April 12, 2007: Notification of proposal acceptance May 1, 2007: URL for the workshop web page due October 11, 2007: Electronic version of working notes for the workshop due November 11-12, 2007: Workshop days November 13-15, 2007: ISWC 2007 Technical Program. SUBMITTING A PROPOSAL ===================== Workshop proposals should be no more than 3 pages in length and should contain the following information: - The title and brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the goals and the technical issues that it will focus on. - A brief discussion of why the topic is of particular interest at this time. - A brief description of why and to whom the workshop is of interest, the workshop audience. - A brief description of the proposed workshop format, discussing the mix of events such as paper presentations, invited talks, panels, and general discussion. - An indication of whether the workshop should be considered for a half-day or full-day meeting. - A list of related workshops or similar events held in the last 3 years, or to be held in 2007. - The names and contact information (web page, email address) of the proposed organizing committee and short description of their relevant experience. We strongly advise having more than one organizer, preferably from different institutions, bringing different perspectives to the workshop topic. Workshop attendees must pay the ISWC 2007 workshop registration fee, as well as the conference registration fee. The ISWC2007 Workshop Co-chairs are Geert-Jan Houben (Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium) and Harith Alani (University of Southampton, UK). Please send your proposals by March 12, 2007 and any inquiries by email to iswc2007-workshops_(on)_few.vu.nl. Workshop proposals may be submitted in any format; Word, text or PDF. -------------------------------------------------------------------- _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(on)_elsnet.org http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
