=======Call for Papers========

In the successful series of Semantic Grid and e-Science events we  
intend to bring together researchers and practitioners around the  
world from the quickly developing research areas of the Semantic Web,  
Grid and e-Science. As semantic technologies are being widely  
accepted in various e-science areas such as life science or  
bioinformatics, it is necessary and urgent to offer semantically  
enriched methods, tools, middleware to facilitate semantic modeling,  
system building, searching, and data analyzing in e-science  
applications. Former Semantic Grid research aimed at the Grid level,  
in which often the basic premises of the science-like environment are  
forgotten or disregarded. Thus the main goal of this workshop is to  
lay the foundations for e-Science within the Semantic Web scenario.

The aim of this workshop is to ground Semantic e-Science firmly on  
the needs of the Semantic Web and general science research community.  
We want to encourage and stimulate discussion about the current state  
of the art in Semantic e-Science and its future direction. Currently,  
ontologies and the Semantic Web attract researchers from all around  
the world and from various disciplines. There have been many  
approaches of using ontologies in the e-Science domain, which has  
been introduced in several past Semantic Grid and e-Science events.  
However, the role of ontology in the Semantic e-Science research has  
still not been unambiguously formalized. On the other hand, ontology- 
based tools for various e-Science branches have been widely developed  
and already attracted the attention from traditional science research  
community and provided real cases and experience for applying  
Semantic Web technologies. We regard it as necessity to set a  
research agenda at this point in time, in order to steer the  
development and the research efforts in the most rewarding direction  
towards our common goal of realizing the Semantic e-Science.  
Otherwise we fear that effort, motivation and funding may be invested  
less effectively, slowing the realization and adaptation of the  
Semantic Web technology in the e-Science research. Furthermore, there  
is also a great opportunity for the building the collaboration  
between the EU and non-EU universities, especially Asian  
universities, which locate at the one of the most active economical  
areas around the world. The holding of this workshop would help to  
build closer connection between researchers from both sides, and  
consolidate the collaborations.

Submission and Proceedings
Interested authors should submit an electronic PDF and source version  
of their papers to *Yimin Wang* prior to the paper submission  
deadline. The first page of submitted papers should include: title,  
author names, affiliations, postal addresses, electronic mail  
addresses, telephone and fax numbers for all authors, and a brief  
abstract. All correspondence will be sent to the author mentioned as  
contact person in the electronic title page (by default, the first  
author). Submissions should not exceed 10 pages and should be  
formatted according to the guidelines of the Springer Lecture Notes.  
We are currently pursuing to publish the proceedings as a journal  
special issue and as printed proceedings.
