[Apologies if you receive multiple copies] ================================================================== CALL FOR PAPERS ESWC 2007 4th European Semantic Web Conference 3 - 7 June 2007 Innsbruck (Austria) 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, enriched with domain theories (Ontologies), will enable a web that provides a qualitatively new level of service. It will weave together a large network of human knowledge and makes this knowledge machine-processable. Various automated services will help the users to achieve their goals by accessing and processing information in machine-understandable form. This network of knowledge systems will ultimately lead to truly intelligent systems, which will be employed for various specialized reasoning subsystems to accomplish complex tasks. Many technologies and methodologies are being developed within Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Databases, Multimedia Systems, Distributed Systems, Software Engineering and Information Systems that can contribute towards the realization of this vision. The 4th Annual European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2007) will present the latest results in research and application of Semantic Web technologies, including knowledge mark-up languages, Semantic Web services, and ontology management. ESWC 2007 will also feature a special industry-oriented event, a forum for gaining a better understanding of these new technologies and their business aspects. The conference will offer a tutorial program to get up to speed with European and global developments in this exciting new area. Several distinguished scientists will give an invited talk at the conference; among them, prof. Stefano Ceri (Tech. Univ. of Milan, Italy), prof. Georg Gottlob (Oxford Univ., UK), prof. Ning Zhong (Maebashi Institute of Technology, Japan). ESWC 2007 is sponsored by ESSI - a group of European Commission 6th Framework Programme projects. Together these projects aim to improve world-wide research and standardisation in the area of the Semantic Web. For more information on ESSI, please visit www.essi-cluster.org. Submissions ESWC 2007 welcomes the submission of excellent original research and application papers dealing with all aspects of the Semantic Web, particularly those related to the subject areas indicated by the topics below. We particularly encourage the submission of papers on industrial efforts and experiences with Semantic Web projects. We 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 2007 will be electronic, via the conference Web site: http://www.eswc2007.org/. Papers, due 15 December, 2006, should not exceed fifteen (15) pages in Springer LNCS format. Papers may be accepted as (i) full papers, or as (ii) short papers with poster presentation. Important Dates Abstract Submission: 8 December, 2006 Full Paper Submission: 15 December, 2006 Notification: 26 February, 2007 Camera-Ready Papers due: 16 March, 2007 Conference: 3 - 7 June, 2007 Conference Topics of Interest Topics of interest to the conference include (but are not restricted to): * Ontology Management (creation, evolution, evaluation, etc.) * Ontology Alignment (mapping, matching, merging, mediation and reconciliation) * Ontology Learning and Metadata Generation (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 * Logics for the Semantic Web * Reasoning on the Semantic Web * Behavior in the Semantic Web * 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 (description, discovery, invocation, composition, choreography, etc.) * 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 Workflows * Semantic Web Mining We particularly welcome application papers which clearly show benefits of Semantic Web technologies in practical settings.
