Call for Tutorials for the 3rd European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2006) ***Apologies for multiple postings*** C a l l f o r T u t o r i a l s 3rd European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2006) 11 - 14 June 2006 Budva (Montenegro) http://www.eswc2006.org/ DESCRIPTION The vision of the Semantic Web is to enhance todayís web via the exploitation of machine-processable meta data. The explicit representation of the semantics of data, accompanied by domain theories (ontologies), will create a web that provides a qualitatively new level of service - weaving together an incredibly large network of human knowledge complemented by machine inference. A variety of automated services will help users to achieve goals by accessing and pro- viding information in a machine-understandable form. This process will ulti- mately lead to knowledgeable systems based composed of specialized reasoning services and systems. Many technologies and methodologies are being developed within the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Human Language Technology, Machine Learning, Databases, Distributed Systems, Software Engineering and Information Systems which are able to contribute towards this vision. The 3rd European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2006) will showcase the latest results in the research and application in semantic web technologies - including knowledge mark-up languages, semantic web services, ontology management. The ESWC 2006 will also feature a special industry-oriented event providing European industry with an opportunity to engage with the semantic web community in a meaningful manner. For further information see the ESWC 2006 homepage at http://www.eswc2006.org/. In addition to the regular research and workshop programme, ESWC 2006 invites tutorials on relevant topics of interest. A tutorial should present the state of the art of a semantic web area enabling attendees to fully appreciate the current issues, main schools of thought and possible application areas. Proposals for tutorials are welcome for the ESWC 2006 topics of interest (see bottom); tutorial proposals are requested to follow the submission process defined below. TUTORIAL PROPOSALS ESWC 2006 tutorials may be either for a full day or for a half day. Unless there is a clear rationale we will give preference to half day tutorials over full day tutorials. Tutorials proposed for the ESWC 2006 should cover one topic in appropriate depth (see ESWC 2006 topics below), and present this in a appropriate manner which enables attendees to fully comprehend and apply emerging Semantic Web techno- logies. Although tutorials may focus entirely on theoretical aspects, we strongly encourage hands-on sessions where appropriate. Tutorial proposals should not exceed 5 pages in DIN A4 format and should contain the following information: - abstract (200 words maximum; to be published on ESWC 2006 website) - tutorial description (aims, content, presentation style, technical requirements) - relevance of the tutorial to ESWC 2006 - outline of the tutorial content and schedule - information on presenters (name, affiliation, expertise, experiences in teaching and in tutorial presentation) Tutorial proposals are to be submitted to Michael Stollberg, email: michael.stollberg_(on)_deri.org. Submitted proposals that follow the above guidelines will be reviewed by the ESWC 2006 organizing committee with respect to the relevance of the topic, the content, and the presentation style. Important Dates: - submission deadline for tutorial proposals: 28 November 2005 - notification of acceptance: 19 December 2005 - tutorial hand-outs due: 31 March 2006 - tutorial presentation date: 11 / 12 June 2006 For accepted tutorials, the presenters will need to submit the material for hand-outs (the slide sets and / or additional information; software installation and usage guides for practical hands-on sessions) to the organization committee for pre-printing and placement on the ESWC 2006 website. Accepted tutorials will receive 1 free registration to the ESWC 2006 (full registration incl. tutorial, workshop, conference, reception and conference dinner). TOPIC LIST The topics of interest for tutorials include, but are not limited to the following: - 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 TUTORIAL CHAIR Michael Stollberg (DERI Austria), michael.stollberg_(on)_deri.org _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(on)_elsnet.org http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
