*         Ontology mapping and merging

*         Semantic Web and uncertainty

*         Description logics and frame logics as ontology formalisms

*         Modular, distributed, and multi-ontologies

*         Semantic Web technologies for collaboration and cooperation

*         Semantic Web Services (description, discovery, invocation, composition)

CSWS 2011 will feature two tracks: a Research and a Work-in-Progress track. The objective of the research track is to solicit original papers that present accomplished research on the area of the Semantic Web. The Work-in-Progress track aims at providing an opportunity for practitioners to present their on-going research on principles and applications of the Semantic Web, even when implementation or deployment has not been completed.

Accepted submissions will be published in the symposium Proceeding.

Authors are invited to submit full papers in PDF, Postscript or MS-Word RTF electronically. All papers must be written in English. Research papers can be up to 12 pages in length and Work-In-Progress papers can be up to 6 pages. Papers must be formatted according to Springer's LNCS style.
