************************************************************************* 2nd International Workshop on Applications of Logic Programming in the Web, Semantic Web and Semantic Web Services (ALPSWS2007) ***********PAPER DEADLINE APPROACHING************** 30 June, 2007 http://www.bd.cesma.usb.ve/alpsws07 co-located with the International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP2007) Porto, Portugal, 13 September 2007. ************************************************************************* Description: The advent of the Semantic Web promises machine-readable semantics and a machine-processable next generation of the Web. The first step in this direction is the annotation of static data on the Web with machine-processable information about knowledge and its structure, by means of ontologies. The next step in this direction is the annotation of dynamic applications and services invocable over the Web in order to facilitate automation of discovery, selection and composition of semantically described services and data sources on the Web by intelligent methods, which are called (Semantic) Web Services. In this workshop we want to advance the applications of Logic Programming as a paradigm for declarative knowledge representation and reasoning for the Web. The idea is to bring together the body of work related to applications of LP to the Web, Semantic Web and Web Services. We solicit contributions focusing on both practical applications and theoretical aspects of logic programming based approaches to Web related topics including (but not limited to): -Reasoning about Semantic Web languages such as RDF, RDFS, OWL, RuleML, WSML, OWL-S, SA-SWDL, SPARQL, RIF, etc. -Logic Programming based rule languages for the Semantic Web -Deductive query answering in a Semantic Web context -Ontology modeling and mediation using Logic Programming -Reasoning over large-scale ontologies -Reasoning with large instance data in the presence of ontologies -Combinations of Logic Programming and Description Logics -Modeling of and reasoning about Web Services -Applications of reasoning about actions and dynamics in the context of Web Services discovery and composition -Interactions of Logic Programming with other technologies such as agents, constraint programming, etc. in a (Semantic) Web context -Applications, use cases, experimental results and benchmarks -Extensions of Logic Programming engines for Semantic Web applications Important Dates: -30 June 2007, Submission of papers ****DEADLINE EXTENDED***** -30 July 2007, Notification of acceptance -10 August 2007, Camera-ready versions due -13 September 2007, Workshop Submissions and Proceedings: We invite two forms of submission to this workshop: full papers and short papers. Format required for submissions: Full papers shall be up to 16 pages length, short papers 6 pages which could include position papers, system descriptions or preliminary work. The workshop content will be made available in separate workshop proceedings. Please use the Springer LNCS format for the papers. Find submission details on ther workshop Webpage at: http://www.bd.cesma.usb.ve/alpsws07 We plan to invite authors of the best papers to submit revised and extended versions of their papers for an edited book on Applications of LP in the Web, Semantic Web and Web Services. Workshop Organization: The workshop will be organized in part around talks presenting research results in the intersection of the Semantic Web and Logic Programming selected from the accepted submissions. Another important part of the workshop will be to identify next steps and provide an opportunity for new ideas and initiatives. A part of the workshop will be dedicated towards discussion using the open-space methodology which facilitates and enables effective on site agenda building and execution.
