CALL FOR PAPERS, POSTERS AND DEMOS ================================================================= Workshop on Collaborative Construction, Management and Linking of Structured Knowledge October 25, 2009 Collocated with ISWC-2009 Westfields Conference Center, near Washington, DC., USA Paper submission: August 10, 2009 (13 days from today) http://users.ecs.soton.ac.uk/gc3/iswc-workshop/ ================================================================= Objectives ----------- Many have argued that the next generation of the Web (Web 3.0) will grow out of an integration between Semantic Web and Social Web (Web 2.0) technologies.Can ontology management benefits from social web? Can Wikipidia be a style of collaborative ontology authoring? How to exploit user feedback for constructing structured knowledge? In these and many other questions lie the opportunity and the challenge to integrate knowledge bases approaches to social web ones. This integration involves several very different aspects of technology and social practice. Recent workshops and journal special issues have been devoted to methods for extracting ontologies and other structured knowledge from resources such as Wikipedia and other loosely structured data; or on using Semantic Web representations to describe the social structures and interactions in Web 2.0; or on mapping existing data using semantic technologies. In this workshop, we want to focus on another aspect of linkage between Social Web and Semantic Web techniques: collaborative and distributed methods for constructing and maintaining ontologies, terminologies, vocabularies, and mappings between them, throughout their entire life cycle. Topics of interest ------------------- They include (but are not limited to): - Collaborative creation and editing of structured knowledge - Collaborative creation of ontology mappings - Efficient methods for maintenance and evolution of structured knowledge that was created collaboratively - Individual and group incentives for collaborative knowledge construction and maintenance - Ontology repositories, knowledge bases, and their utility in the Social Web. - Metadata management - User interfaces for collaborative tools for creating structured knowledge - Inconsistency management and user-specific views of ontologies - Workflows for collaborative construction and linking of structured knowledge - Evaluation of collaborative tools: methods, metrics, and experimental reports Submission guidelines --------------------- Papers submitted to the workshop must follow the same submission guidelines of the ISWC'09 conference. Submissions must be in PDF format in Springer format (for instruction see http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-2-72376-0) We solicit in this workshop two types of contributions: 1. Research papers analysing the process of collaborative construction, management and linkage of structured knowledge; the requirements for supporting technologies and the field of exploitation of such knowledge. Formatted papers must not be longer than 10 pages. 2. Demos papers describing relevant tools and prototypes. Formatted papers must not be longer than 2 pages. Important dates ---------------- Paper submission: 10 August 2009 Notification : 31 August 2009 Workshop : 25 October 2009 Organizing committee --------------------- Tania Tudorache (co-chair), Stanford University Gianluca Correndo (co-chair), University of Southampton Natasha Noy, Stanford University Harith Alani, University of Southampton Mark Greaves, Vulcan inc.
