CFP: ESWC12 - 9th Extended Semantic Web Conference
May 27 - 31, 2012

Info at: http://2012.eswc-conferences.org/

The mission of ESWC is to bring together researchers and practitioners 
dealing with different aspects of semantic technologies. Building on its 
past success, ESWC is seeking to broaden its focus to span other 
relevant research areas in which semantics in a Web context plays an 
important role. The goal of the Semantic Web is to create a Web of 
knowledge and services in which the semantics of content is made 
explicit and content is linked to both other content and services. This 
network of knowledge-based functionality will weave together a large 
network of human knowledge, and make this knowledge machine-processable 
to support intelligent behaviour by machines. It will support novel 
applications allowing to combine content from heterogeneous sites in 
unforeseen ways and support enhanced matching between users needs and 
content.

Creating such an interlinked Web of knowledge which spans unstructured, 
RDF as well as multimedia content and services requires the 
collaboration of many disciplines, including but not limited to: 
Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Database and 
Information Systems, Information Retrieval, Machine Learning, 
Multimedia, Distributed Systems, Social Networks, Web Engineering, and 
Web Science.

In addition to the research and in-use tracks, we have furthermore 
introduced two special tracks this year, putting particular emphasis on 
inter-disciplinary research topics and areas that show the potential of 
exciting synergies for the future.

*Important Dates*

Abstract submission    December 5th, 2011
Full-paper submission    December 12th, 2011
Notification of acceptance/rejection    February 22nd, 2012
Camera-ready papers    March 9th, 2012

*Additional Information*

ESWC2012 welcomes the submission of original research and application 
papers dealing with all aspects of representing and using semantics on 
the Web. 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 ESWC2012 will be electronic via the 
conference submissions site. Each paper must be assigned to one of the 
tracks below:


Program Chairs
- Philipp Cimiano
- Axel Polleres

General Chair
- Elena Simperl


Research tracks
- Ontologies (Chairs: Chiara Ghidini, Dimitris Plexousakis)
- Reasoning (Chairs: Giovambattista Ianni, Markus Krötzsch)
- Semantic Data Management (Chairs: Claudio Gutierrez, Andreas Harth)
- Linked Open Data (Chairs: Sören Auer, Juan Sequeda)
- Social Web and Web Science (Chairs: Fabien Gandon, Matthew Rowe)
- Software, Services, Processes and Cloud Computing (Chairs: Matthias 
Klusch, Carlos Pedrinaci)
- Natural Language Processing and Information Retrieval (Chairs: Paul 
Buitelaar, Johanna Völker)
- Mobile and Sensor Web (Chairs: Alasdair J G Gray, Kerry Taylor)
- Machine Learning (Chairs: Claudia d'Amato, Volker Tresp)

Special tracks 2012
- EGovernment: Using Semantics for Promoting Interoperability in the 
Public Sector (Chairs: Asunción Gómez-Pérez, Vassilios Peristeras)
- Digital Libraries and Cultural Heritage (Chairs: Antoine Isaac, Vivien 
Petras)

In-use & Industrial track
- In-use & Industrial track (Chairs: Philippe Cudré-Mauroux, Yves Raimond)

Check the website for detailed descriptions of each of these tracks.

Papers should not exceed fifteen (15) pages in length and must be 
formatted according to the information for LNCS authors. Papers must be 
submitted in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) format and will not 
be accepted in any other format. Papers that exceed 15 pages or do not 
follow the LNCS guidelines risk being rejected automatically without a 
review. Authors of accepted papers will be required to provide semantic 
annotations for the abstract of their submission - details of this 
process will be provided on the conference Web page at the time of 
acceptance. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for 
the conference. More information about the Springer's Lecture Notes in 
Computer Science (LNCS) are available on the Springer LNCS Web site 
(http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs/lncs+authors).

Submission will be through the Easychair system:
