Apologies for multiple copies due to cross postings. Please send to interested colleagues and students) CALL FOR PAPERS --------------------------------------------------------------------- The 1st International Workshop "Semantic Information Integration on Knowledge Discovery" - (SIIK 2006) --------------------------------------------------------------------- http://www.ares-conf.org/siik in conjunction with the 8th International Conference on Information Integration and Web Based Applications & Services (iiWAS2006) http://www.iiwas.org/conferences/iiwas2006/ 4-6 December 2006, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Introduction ------------- Knowledge Discovery has been widely accepted as a key technology for enterprises and organizations to improve their abilities in data analysis, decision support, and the automatic extraction of knowledge from data. With the exponential growing amount of information to be included in the decision making process, the data to be considered becomes more and more complex in both structure and semantics, located in heterogeneous and distributed systems. Furthermore, the explosive growth and popularity of the world-wide web has resulted in a huge number of information sources on the Internet. Consequently, the process of retrieval and knowledge discovery from this huge amount of heterogeneous complex data builds the litmus-test for the research in the area. Information Integration subsumes all technologies needed to provide form manipulation of information scattered over many information systems while supporting a single system image. Information integration has been a long standing challenge for the database community in the last decades. Although there are several distinct research and development areas explicitly or implicitly addressing data integration, the schematic and semantic heterogeneity is still one of the most difficulties in the integration of heterogeneous knowledge and information systems - one of the perquisite steps of knowledge discovery process. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners to present their recent work, discuss and identify problems, synergize different views of techniques and policies, and brainstorm future research/development directions on semantic information integration used in knowledge discovery. The research on progress, draft idea, architecture submissions are also welcome. Particularly, we strongly encourage submissions dealing with real world applications such as information integration in science information systems, health-care systems, e-government, e-commerce, workflow management systems, web information systems, etc. Topics of interests ------------------- The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to: - Standards based Information Integration - Managing metadata for information integration - Semantic Integration - Information extraction - Information quality/data cleaning - Resolving inconsistency across sources - Ontologies for Information Integration - Ontology mapping and merging - Schema mapping/evaluating/integrating - On-the-fly Integration - Secure Information Integration - Information Integration architectures - Reviews and evaluation of existing Integration approaches - Tools for supporting Information Integration - Data Integration in data warehousing/ data mining - Data integration in P2P/Grid systems - Data Integration in Health Care systems - Data Integration in e-Commerce applications - Data Integration in e-Government applications - Data Integration in e-Science applications - Data Integration Management for mobile applications - Workflow Information Integration - Data Integration across Institutional Borders Submission Instructions ----------------------- The SIIK workshop accepts full and short research papers. For paper registration and electronic submission please use the following website: http://www.ares-conf.org/siik/review The length of the full paper should not exceed 10 pages and short paper should not exist 5 pages. Papers must be formatted according to the guidelines of the Austrian Computer Society (OCG). (to be found at http://www.ocg.at/activities/books/Richtlinien.pdf). Submitted papers will be blind reviewed and carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. Duplicate submissions are not allowed. A submission is considered to be a duplicate submission if it is submitted to other conferences/workshops/journals or it has been already accepted to be published in other conferences/workshops/journals. Duplicate submissions thus will be automatically rejected without reviews. The submission implies that at least one author must register at the iiWAS conference and present the paper. Important Dates --------------- September 15, 2006 Full Papers submission October 6, 2006 Acceptance Notification October 15, 2006 Camera-Ready Papers December 4-6,2006 Workshop at iiWAS Conference Publication ------------ All accepted workshop papers will be published in the Austrian Computer Society book series. Distinguished papers, after further revisions, will be published in special issues of : [1] International Journal of Web Information Systems (http://www.troubador.co.uk/ijwis) [2] International Journal of Web and Grid Services (https://www.inderscience.com/browse/index.php?journalID=47) [3] International Journal of Business Intelligence and Data Mining (https://www.inderscience.com/browse/index.php?journalID=143) [4] More are pending approval Workshop Organizers ------------------- Nguyen Manh Tho, Ph.D. (main contact) Institute of Software Technique and Interactive System, Vienna University of Technology , Favoriten strasse 9-11/188 A1040 Vienna, Austria tho_(on)_ifs.tuwien.ac.at Benhard Sitohang, Ph.D. School of electrical engineering & Informatics, Bandung Institute of Technology, Indonesia Benhard_(on)_informatika.org Programme Committee ------------------- Ahmad Ashari, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia Ladjel Bellatreche, ENSMA - Poitiers University, France Andrea Cali, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy R.
