                      I-Know 2006 Special Track on

               Advanced Semantic Technologies 2006 (AST '06)

                Wednesday, 6th September 2006, Graz, Austria


Call for Papers for the I-KNOW '06 Special Track on Advanced Semantic
Technologies 2006 (AST '06).


The I-KNOW '06 Special Track on Advanced Semantic Technologies
addresses the emerging field of semantic technologies in knowledge
management and information retrieval. Original papers are solicited
and will be reviewed by a board of international experts.

Topics include but are not limited to:

* Retrieval based on knowledge organisation systems (KOS)
* Ontology powered information systems
* Ontologies and knowledge representation in applied knowledge
* Probabilistics in knowledge representation
* Ontology learning and extraction
* Modeling and retrieval of semantic metadata
* Semantic analysis of structured and unstructured data
* Knowledge discovery in the Semantic Web
* Semantic agent technologies

Submissions might also address applications of semantic technologies
in areas such as knowledge management, competency management,
workflow management, search engines, decision support, e-learning,
healthcare, mobile and pervasive computing or bioinformatics.


The area of semantic technologies combines a series of hot topics:
The Semantic Web, knowledge organization systems (KOS), agent
technologies and ontologies. While the Semantic Web is based on a
series of definitions and aims to build a new way of sharing and
searching for information in the Internet, knowledge organization
systems and ontologies allow the formal definition of explicit
knowledge. Agent technologies benefit from the explicit knowledge
provided in the semantic web through processing it for completing
their programmed tasks.
The areas of information retrieval and information systems find
themselves facing new requirements: In information retrieval
knowledge has to be integrated in the process of finding and ranking
search results as well as in the processes of clustering and
classifying information. Information systems aim to include
ontologies for enhancing their results by using a knowledge base.
Within the Special Track on Advanced Semantic Technologies we aim to
bring together researchers from different areas of semantic and
knowledge based systems research to exchange experiences, present and
talk about the results of their work and discuss hot topics.

Target Group

The topics mentioned above are addressed at researchers and
developers as well as at innovative practitioners and providers in
the fields of semantic technologies. The special track will be held
in English.

Submission Instructions and Procedure

Submissions should be handed in as full papers and should not exceed
8 pages. Please use the I-KNOW style guides (http://www.i-know.at/
author_guidelines) and submit your contribution in PDF or MS Word
format. In case of problems or questions concerning the submission
(http://www.i-know.at/i_know_06/topics/submission) of papers, please
contact the track chairs at ast@know-center.at.

Submissions, regardless of category, should include title, author(s),
abstract, keywords, body, and references. Submissions are to be made
electronically in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) or MS Word
format. Submissions are treated as confidential communications during
the review process, so submission does not constitute public
disclosure of any ideas therein. Submissions should contain no
information or materials that will be proprietary or confidential at
the time of publication, and should cite no publications that are
proprietary or confidential at the time of publication.

Important Dates

      * 17 April     2006 - Submission of the full paper (8 pages)
      * 22 May       2006 - Notification of acceptance
      * 26 June      2006 - Camera ready paper (8 pages)
      * 06 September 2006 - AST 2006 special track


Accepted papers will be published within the I-KNOW '06 conference
proceedings in cooperation with J.UKM and Springer Co. Pub. At least
one author of an accepted paper must register for the I-KNOW
conference before the deadline for camera-ready-copies of the papers
(26 June 2006). Otherwise the paper will not be published.
