3rd International Conference on ONTOLOGIES, DATABASES, AND APPLICATIONS OF SEMANTICS FOR LARGE SCALE INFORMATION SYSTEMS (ODBASE) Larnaca, Cyprus, Oct 25-29, 2004 http://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedco nf Proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag The conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics for Large Scale Information Systems (ODBASE'04) provides a forum on ontologies and data semantics that is inclusive of the many computing disciplines involved in developing the "semantic" web. In order to draw a highly diverse body of researchers and practitioners, ODBASE'04 is part of the Federated Symposium Event "On the Move to Meaningful Internet Systems 2004" that co-locates three conferences: Data and Web Semantics (ODBASE'04); Distributed Objects, Infrastructure and Enabling Technology and Internet Computing (DOA'04); and Workflow, Cooperation, and Interoperability (CoopIS'04). Of particular relevance to ODBASE 2004 are papers that bridge traditional boundaries between disciplines such as databases, artificial intelligence, networking, computational linguistics, and mobile computing. ODBASE 2004 also encourages the submission of research and practical experience papers concerning scale issues in ontology management, information integration, and data mining, as well as papers that examine the information needs of various applications, including electronic commerce, electronic government, mobile systems, and bioinformatics. ODBASE 2004 will consider two categories of papers: research and experience. Research papers must contain novel, unpublished results. Experience papers must describe existing, real-world scale systems; preference will be given to papers that describe software products or systems that are in wide experimental use. Specific areas of interest to ODBASE'04 include but are not limited to: Management of Semantically-Expressive Information * Knowledge Acquisition and Representation * Ontology Languages and Specification * Ontology Extraction, Learning and Evolution * Hypertext, Multimedia, and Hypermedia Data Management * Semi-Structured Data * Management and Integration of Large Ontology Bases * Data Integration * Semantic Middleware * Information Dissemination * Searching and Managing Dynamic Contents * Self-organization in Information Systems * Information Retrieval * Terminology Management * Data Filtering, Cleansing, and Summarization * Metadata Management * Data and Web Mining * Security * Information Quality Applications, Evaluations, and Experiences * Media Archives and Digital Libraries * Enterprise-wide Information Systems * Web-based Information Systems * Location-Dependent Information Services * Web Services * Intelligent Information Agents * Electronic Commerce * Electronic Government * Scientific Databases * Bioinformatics * Ubiquitous and Mobile Information Systems IMPORTANT DATES * Abstract Submission Deadline: May 30, 2004 * Paper Submission Deadline: June 15, 2004 * Acceptance Notification: July 31, 2004 * Final Version Due: August 20, 2004 * Conference: October 25-29, 2004 SUBMISSION GUIDELINES All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. All submissions must be in English. Research and experience submissions must not exceed 8,000 words. Submissions must clearly identify the nature of the paper as research or experience. Submissions can either be in Postscript, MS Word, or Pdf format and should be done through the following URL: http ://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedconf/odbase/2004/papers/submit/ The final proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag as LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science). Author instructions can be found at: http://www.springer .de/comp/lncs/authors.html Failure to commit to presentation at the conference automatically excludes a paper from the proceedings.
