Hi all,

Below is a draft that monica schraefel and I have been preparing for a 
Semantic Web User Interaction workshop at ISWC2006. What do you all 
think? The deadline is April 3rd (in one week, thus). CFP is at 
http://iswc2006.semanticweb.org/workshop_tutorial/workshops.htm . This 
draft follows the format from the CFP.

And now the proposal:

Semantic Web User Interaction
Full-day workshop

Technical Description:

This workshop addresses how users can interact with information
represented with Semantic Web technologies. Issues include defining
paradigms for interaction, their corresponding technical interfaces
and the mapping of Semantic Web constructs to them. We aim to map the
"problem space" that binds these issues together.

Current Interest:

While there is much activity on Semantic Web research and deployment,
the focus seems on getting information into repositories rather than
on how to present it to the final users. The HTML-based Web often
gives very many users rich interaction with information stored in
pre-Semantic formats. We see making this now-familiar rich interaction
available for information stored on the Semantic Web as
well. Furthermore, we would like to see how Semantic Web offers new
possibilities for further enriching user interaction with information.

Audience:

This workshop is of interest to anyone who wants to make information
stored with Semantic Web technologies presentable to end users. This
includes those who create RDF and OWL code to represent information
for distribution, crafters of interfaces to Semantic Web repositories
and those interested in revisited and new paradigms for human
interaction with the Semantic Web.
