2nd International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2003) Sanibel Island, Florida, USA 20-23 October 2003 http://iswc2003.semanticweb.org CALL FOR INDUSTRY PAPERS The vision of the Semantic Web is to make web data machine processable, and rests on the premise that to do so we need to accommodate, somehow, the semantics of these data. Many technologies and methodologies are being developed within Artificial Intelligence, Databases, Software Engineering and Information Systems that can contribute towards the realization of this vision. Among those are languages for semantic annotation of Web documents, ontologies, technologies and methodologies for building multi-agent systems, semantic interoperation of programs that have been developed totally independently, technologies and methodologies for describing, searching and composing Web Services, and more. ISWC2003 welcomes the submission of original industrial papers dealing with all aspects of the Semantic Web, particularly those relating to the subject areas indicated by the topics below. We encourage papers relating to industrial efforts and experiences with Semantic Web projects. These papers will be presented in the Industrial Track. The industrial track of the conference encourages submissions covering innovative commercial implementations of semantic web technology, novel applications of semantic web technology, and experience in applying research advances to practical situations. Such papers should describe innovative implementations, new approaches to fundamental challenges (such as large scale ontologies or semantic complexity), or other major technical improvements to the state-of-the-practice. Industrial / application / experience submissions may be either full papers whose technical density is comparable to research submissions or extended abstracts. Discouraged are papers or abstracts that are marketing oriented or are pure product descriptions or specifications. The goal of the industrial track is to demonstrate the application of research results in software products as well as state real world requirements from practical applications that might encourage further research into specific domains of semantic web technology. Conference Topics Of Interest and Area Keywords Suggested topics include: * Languages, Tools and Methodologies for Semantic Annotations of Web Data * Ontologies (creation, merging, linking and reconciliation) * Large Scale Knowledge Management * Data Semantics * Database Technologies for the Semantic Web * Knowledge Portals * Tools and Methodologies for Multi-Agent Software Systems * Semantic Brokering * Semantic Interoperability * Semantic Web Mining * Semantic Web Services (service description, discovery, invocation, composition) * Semantic Web Inference Schemes * Semantic Web Trust, Privacy, Security and Intellectual Property Rights * Semantic Web for e-Business and e-Learning * Searching and Querying * User Interfaces * Visualization and modelling INDUSTRIAL PROGRAM COMMITTEE Dean Allemang (TopQuadrant, USA) Bill Andersen (OntologyWorks, USA) Jürgen Angele (Ontoprise, Germany) John Davis (British Telekom, UK) Satish Thatte (Microsoft) David Trastour (Hewlett-Packard) Michael Uschold (The Boeing Company, USA) Arian Zwegers (Baan, Netherlands) Important Dates April 15, 2003 Paper submission June 15, 2003 Acceptance Notification July 15, 2003 Camera-Ready Papers due Please note that the deadline for paper submission is strict: no extensions will be allowed. Submission Details * Paper submission and reviewing for ISWC2003 will be electronic, via the conference WWW site: http://iswc2003.semanticweb.org * The only formats allowed for submission are PostScript or PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format). These are widely supported and well-known standards: papers will not be accepted in any other format (e.g., MS Word) because of compatibility problems between software versions, machines, and nationalities. See the conference WWW site for information about how to convert other formats (e.g., MS Word) to PDF/PostScript. * Note that the electronic submission site is likely to be very busy around the paper submission deadline. You are strongly urged to submit your abstract and your paper as far in advance of the deadline as possible. * Submitted papers must be formatted in the style of the Springer publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science. * Papers must be no longer than 8 pages, including figures and references, when formatted using the style files provided. Overlength papers will be rejected. * ISWC2003 will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is under review for or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. * PLEASE monitor http://iswc2003.semanticweb.org for further submission details or changes.
