##### Semantic Web In Use Track: Call for Papers #####
The 6th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2007)
combined with the 2nd Asian Semantic Web Conference (ASWC 2007)
November 11-15, 2007 BEXCO (Busan Exhibition
and Convention Center), Busan, KOREA
Semantic Web In Use Track: Call for Papers
The Semantic Web is beginning to come down from its ivory tower
and see uptake in business, small and large, where aspects such
as search, data integration and Web service communication
enabled by the application of semantic technologies lead to
improved business processes, savings in cost and time and
heightened efficiency and competitiveness.
The Semantic Web In-Use Track (called Industrial Track in
previous ISWC conferences) is a showcase for these potential
benefits of applying semantic technology in industry and seeks
to show, to an interested industrial audience:
1. the best applications of semantic technology to solve
business problems and benefit business processes
2. the best tools to ease the deployment of such applications
within company IT systems.
Hence the Semantic Web In Use track of ISWC2007 solicits the
submission of original, principled papers which should include
some or all of:
1. A good clear description of an implemented application of
semantic technology. Applications are welcome in any area -
industry, government, science or society.
2. An assessment of the pros and cons of using semantic
technology to solve a particular business problem. Are
extensions beyond the existing standards necessary? What
advantages does a semantic approach have over traditional
approaches to the application?
3. An assessment of the costs - e.g. time and cost of
implementation, ease of deployment, integration with legacy
IT systems - and benefits of this application - e.g. a user
study, a return-on-investment analysis, demonstration of
new results, demonstration of user acceptance.
4. Evidence and assessment of deployment and use of the
A tools paper will include some or all of:
1. A good clear description of an implemented toolset to
support the deployment of semantic technology in business.
2. A demonstration that the toolset offers functionality
beyond what is currently available commercially.
3. An assessment of the benefits of the toolset to the user
community -e.g. a usability study.
4. Evidence and assessment of the toolset being used in the
industrial deployment of semantic technologies.
An additional objective of the track is to attract papers that
describe concrete problems in industry, government, science and
society for which semantic technology would provide a solution.
Such papers should analyze the problem and argue for the
appropriateness of semantic technology, and provide an outline
of possible solutions. A comparison to competing approaches
using conventional technology is strongly encouraged.
Paper submissions must be formatted in the style of the Springer
Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS). For complete details, see Springer's Author
Instructions. Submit papers at the Conference Submission Page.
Papers must be submitted in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document
Format) format. Papers will not be accepted in any other format.
Formatted papers must be no longer than 14 pages. Papers that
exceed this limit will be rejected without review. ISWC2007 will
not accept papers that, at the time of submission, are under
review for or have already been published in or accepted for
publication in a journal or another conference. Authors of
accepted papers will be required to provide semantic annotations
for 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.
