> The workshop seeks high-quality submissions on all aspects of using

> CALL FOR PAPERS
> -------------------------------------------------------
>
> 4th Workshop on Scripting for the Semantic Web http://www.semanticscripting.org/SFSW2008/
>
> co-located with
> 5th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC2008) June 1, 2008,  
> Tenerife, Spain
>
> -------------------------------------------------------
>
> OBJECTIVES
> ----------
>
> The workshop aims to bring together developers who are building  
> applications and infrastructure for the Semantic Web using scripting  
> languages such as PHP, JavaScript, Ruby, Python, Perl, JSP and  
> ActionScript. These languages are the tools of a generation of Web  
> programmers who use them to quickly create server and client-side  
> web applications. Many deployed Semantic Web applications from the  
> FOAF, RSS/ATOM, blog and wiki communities, as well as many  
> innovative mashups from the Web 2.0 and Open Data movements are  
> using scripting languages, and it is likely that the process of RDF- 
> izing existing Web applications and database-backed Web sites will  
> continue to rely heavily on scripting languages.
>
> This year's fourth workshop on Scripting for the Semantic Web aims  
> to continue the tradition of successful ESWC scripting workshops.  
> Last years Scripting for the Semantic Web workshop in Innsbruck,  
> Austria (http://www.semanticscripting.org/SFSW2007/) focused on the  
> role of scripting languages in populating the Web with Linked Data,  
> as well as showcasing innovative scripting applications that consume  
> Linked Data from the Web.
>
> The special focus of this years workshop is the creation of Semantic  
> Web data through social interactions, as well as applications that  
> integrate socially-created data across communities. Therefore, we  
> especially encourage work on providing Semantic Web access to  
> socially-created content bases, as well as approaches that  
> facilitate data integration across different content bases using  
> Semantic Web technologies.
>
> The workshop will include a scripting challenge which will award an  
> industry sponsored prize to the most innovative scripting application.
>
>
> TOPICS OF INTEREST
> ------------------
>
> Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
>
> Infrastructure
> - Semantic Web frameworks and APIs for scripting languages
> - RDF repositories and query languages implemented using scripting  
> languages
> - Reasoning engines implemented using scripting languages
> - Semantic Web publishing and data syndication frameworks
> - Approaches to providing Linked Data views on socially-created  
> content bases
> - Approaches to crawling Web data and querying distributed data on  
> the Web
>
> Applications
> - Semantic Web applications using scripting languages
> - Approaches to using Semantic Web technologies for integrating data  
> across socially-created content bases and user communities
> - Mashups that combine Linked Data from the Web with data from Web  
> 2.0 data sources such as Google, Yahoo, flickr, Amazon or eBay
> - Wikis, weblogs, data syndication and content management  
> applications using RDF
> - Scripting applications for visualizing Web data
> - Semantic Web Mining and Social Network Analysis
> - Approaches to RDF-izing existing web-content, such as RDFa,  
> microformats, GRDDL
> - Mashups that demonstrate the novel capabilities of Semantic Web  
> technologies
>
> Conceptual
> - Rapid development techniques for the Semantic Web
> - Employment of scripting language characteristics for Semantic Web  
> development
> - Scalability and benchmarks of Semantic Web scripting applications
>
>
> SCRIPTING CHALLENGE
> -------------------
>
> The workshop includes a scripting challenge which will award an  
> industry sponsored prize to the most innovative small scripting  
> application or mashup. The application must be implemented using a  
> scripting language and Semantic Web technologies. It should access,  
> visualize or combine data from heterogeneous sources in a novel way.  
> Authors of Scripting Challenge submissions are not required to  
> attend the workshop personally. Please contact Gunnar Grimnes  
> (gunnar.grimnes {at} dfki.de) for further information about the  
> Scripting Challenge.
>
