Call for Papers --------------- AST 2007 - Applications of Semantic Technologies 2nd International AST Workshop located at the Informatik 2007 September 25th, 2007 Bremen, Germany http://km.aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de/ws/ast2007 Organized by Pascal Hitzler and York Sure, AIFB, University of Karlsruhe, Germay ==== Deadline for paper submissions: April 29th, 2007 ==== Objectives ---------- Semantic Web is a major international research effort with the goal to make web content available for intelligent knowledge processing. It draws on standard and novel techniques from various disciplines within Computer Science, including Knowledge Management, Artificial Intelligence, Databases, Internet Technology, Software Agents, eCommerce, etc. The methods and tools developed and integrated for this purpose - often called Semantic Technologies - are generic and have a very large application potential outside the domain of the Semantic Web. Such applications are currently being investigated in various disciplines within Computer Science, including Ambient Intelligence, Software Engineering, Cognitive Systems, Corporate Intranets, Knowledg Management, Bioinformatics, etc. We believe that Semantic Technologies provide methods and tools which will persist in these and other application areas for the foreseeable future. Program ------- To ensure a creative atmosphere during the workshop, the participants will be selected based on their submitted papers, posing important issues to be presented and discussed at the workshop. The workshop will consist of short presentations followed by discussions about the goals of the workshop: Applications of Semantic Web Technologies and outlining a plan for future research. In order to obtain an intensive exchange of ideas between the participants, there will be extensive time for discussion. A final panel will discuss the research agenda for the coming years, based on the presentations and results from the demos, evaluations and discussions. Topics of Interest ------------------ This workshop shall bring together researchers and practitioners who work on applications of Semantic Technologies. It shall further the cross-fertilization between application areas and aid the technology transfer from foundational research into practice. The workshop shall cover diverse application areas of Semantic Technologies, including, but not limited to, the following. * Ambient Intelligence * Cognitive Systems * Data Integration * Multimedia Data Management * Software Engineering * Service-Oriented Computing * Machine Learning * eScience * Information Extraction * Grid Computing * Peer-to-Peer Systems * eCommerce * eGovernment * Bioinformatics * Digital Libraries Invited Speaker --------------- Massimo Paolucci, NTT DoCoMo, Munich, Germany Discussion Panel ---------------- There will be a Panel on Applications of Semantic Technologies. Panelists include Ralf Möller (TU Hamburg-Harburg) and Massimo Paolucci (NTT DoCoMo Munich).
