Call for Papers 3rd European Semantic Web Conference 11 - 14 June 2006 Budva (Montenegro) http://www.eswc2006.org/ The vision of the Semantic Web is to enhance today's web via the exploitation of machine-processable meta data. The explicit representation of the semantics of data, accompanied with domain theories (Ontologies), will enable a web that provides a qualitatively new level of service. It will weave together an incredibly large network of human knowledge and will complement it with machine processability. Various automated services will help the user to achieve goals by accessing and providing information in machine-understandable form. This process may ultimately create truly knowledgeable systems with various specialized reasoning services systems. Many technologies and methodologies are being developed within Artificial Intelligence, Human Language Technology, Machine Learning, Databases, Multimedia Systems, Distributed Systems, Software Engineering and Information Systems that can contribute towards the realization of this vision. The 3rd Annual European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2006) will present the latest results in research and application in semantic web technologies (including knowledge mark-up languages, semantic web services, ontology management and more). ESWC 2006 will also feature a special industry-oriented event providing European industry with an opportunity to become even more familiar with these technologies. It will offer a tutorial program to get up to speed with European and global developments in this exciting new area. ESWC 2006 is co-located with general assembly of the Knowledge Web Network of Excellence. Workshops and meetings of other European Commission 6th Framework Programme projects involved in the semantic web and semantic web technologies will be able to showcase their developments. In particular we will welcome the new projects accepted at the EU IST 4th Call. ESWC 2006 is sponsored by SDK - a group of three European Commission 6th Framework Programme projects known as SEKT, DIP and Knowledge Web. Together these projects aim to improve world-wide research and standardisation in the area of the Semantic Web. For more information on SDK, please visit www.sdk-cluster.org. SUBMISSIONS ESWC 2006 welcomes the submission of excellent original research and application papers dealing with all aspects of the semantic web, particularly those relating to the subject areas indicated by the topics below. We particularly encourage the submission of papers relating to industrial efforts and experiences with semantic web projects. We also encourage theoretical, methodological, empirical and applications papers. The proceedings of this conference will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Paper submission and reviewing for ESWC 2006 will be electronic, via the conference WWW site: http://www.eswc2006.org/. Papers, due to November 28th, 2005, should not exceed fifteen (15) pages in Springer LNCS format. IMPORTANT DATES Full Paper Submission: November 28, 2005 Camera-Ready Papers due: March 31, 2006 Conference: June 11 - 14, 2006 CONFERENCE TOPICS OF INTEREST AND AREA KEYWORDS Topics of interest to the conference include (but are not restricted to): * Ontology Management (e.g. creation, evolution, evaluation) * Ontology Alignment (e.g. mapping, matching, merging, mediation and reconciliation) * Ontology Learning and Metadata Generation (including e.g. HLT and ML approaches) * Multimedia and Semantic Web * Semantic Annotation of Data * Semantic Web Trust, Privacy, Security and Intellectual Property Rights * Semantic Web Rules and Query Languages * Reasoning on the Web (e.g. scalability, fuzziness, distribution) * Searching, Querying, Visualizing, Navigating and Browsing the Semantic Web * Personalization and User Modelling * User Interfaces and Semantic Web * Semantic Grid and Middleware * Semantic Web Services (e.g. description, discovery, invocation, composition) * Semantic Web-based Knowledge Management (e.g. Semantic Desktop, Knowledge Portals) * Semantic Web for e-Business, e-Culture, e-Government, e-Health, e-Learning, e-Science * Database Technologies for the Semantic Web * Data Semantics and Web Semantics * Semantic Interoperability * Semantic Web Mining We particularly welcome application papers which clearly show benefits of semantic web technologies in practical settings.
