FINAL CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS TO THE RESEARCH AND INDUSTRIAL TRACKS Fourth International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2005) November 6 - ­10, 2005 Galway, Ireland http://iswc2005.semanticweb.org ************************************************************** DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: April 30, 2005 ************************************************************** Building on the current web architecture, Semantic Web technologies provide a wide range of tools and techniques to support automated reasoning over distributed representations of web content. The Semantic Web will enable a new generation of applications for education, business, science, consumer services, and general collaboration and research tools. The Semantic Web presents an unprecedented challenge of scale and heterogeneity to existing research in expressive representation and query languages, reasoning engines, data representation and integration, interoperability middleware, and distributed computing. To foster the exchange of ideas and collaboration, the International Semantic Web Conference brings together researchers in relevant disciplines such as Artificial Intelligence, Databases, Distributed Computing, and Information Systems. The 4th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2005) follows on the success of previous conferences and workshops in Hiroshima, Japan (2004), Sanibel Island, USA (2003), Sardinia, Italy (2002), and Stanford, USA (2001). The organizing committee is soliciting paper submissions for the research papers track and the industrial papers track. CALL FOR PAPERS: RESEARCH TRACK The research track of ISWC2005 solicits the submission of original, principled research papers dealing with both analytical and practical aspects of semantic web research. Topics include but are not limited to: - Applications of Semantic Web technologies with clear lessons learned - Semantic Web for e-business, e-science, e-government, and e-learning - User-centered applications of the Semantic Web - Languages, tools and methodologies for representing and managing Semantic Web data - Robust and scalable knowledge management and reasoning on the Web - Ontology creation, extraction, and evolution - Ontology mapping, merging, and alignment - Database technologies for the Semantic Web - Semantic Web middleware - Machine learning and human language technologies for the Semantic Web - Semantic Web services - Agents on the Web - Representing and reasoning about trust, privacy, and security - Semantic web technology for collaboration and cooperation - Social software - Semantic multimedia - Semantics in peer-to-peer systems and grids - Searching, querying, visualizing and interpreting the Semantic Web - Evaluation of semantic Web techniques Research papers must be submitted electronically via the ISWC2005 Web page at http://iswc2005.semanticweb.org. Papers must be submitted in either PostScript or PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) format. Papers will not be accepted in any other format. Research track paper submissions must be formatted in the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Papers must be no longer than 15 pages in Springer LNCS format. Papers that exceed this limit will be automatically rejected without review. ISWC2005 will not accept research papers that, at the time of submission, are under review for or have already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. Authors of accepted papers will be required to annotate semantically the abstract of their submission for the Semantic Web (help will be provided for this task). Details will be provided on the conference Web page at the time of acceptance CALL FOR PAPERS: INDUSTRIAL TRACK The Semantic Web is enjoying a growing interest from industry and from the public at large. Semantic Web technology is moving out of research labs and into the market. A simple search in GoogleNews for "Semantic Web" returns almost 40 hits for published news articles for a period of less than one month. The objective of this year¹s ISWC Industrial Track is to attract papers reporting on industrial applications of Semantic Web technology. Our emphasis is on applications of Semantic Web technology, not necessarily on complete Semantic Web applications. Papers submitted to the ISWC Industrial Track should describe an application within a particular organization or industry sector. Apart from a technological description, authors are encouraged to include a description of how the application improves business. We are particularly interested in practical experiences and in lessons learned regarding Semantic Web applications in industrial contexts that could be of interest to other organizations. An additional objective of the track is to attract papers that describe concrete problems in industry for which Semantic Web technology would provide a solution. Such papers should analyze the problem and argue for the appropriateness of Semantic Web technology, and provide an outline of possible solutions. A comparison to competing approaches using conventional technology is strongly encouraged. In order to understand better the actual and potential uptake of Semantic Web technology in different industries, authors are requested to indicate both the application task (e.g., B2B, Search, Call centers, Business Intelligence, KM, CRM, Portals, etc.) and business sector (Automotive, Telecom, Finance, Public Administration, Pharmaceutics, IT, FMCG, Healthcare, Aeronautics, etc.) of their applications and problems. For submitting a paper, authors should follow the general guidelines of the research track. TECHNICAL ORGANIZING COMMITTEE GENERAL CHAIR Mark A.
