Hi all,

Due to a postponement of the early bird registration deadline for
Intelligent User Interfaces 2010 (IUI2010) in Hong Kong, we have
decided to extend the deadline for submissions to the VISSW2010
workshop (Visual Interfaces to the Social and Semantic Web). The
revised dates are as follows:

   * Paper submission deadline: 14th December, 2009 (11:59pm Hawaii time)
   * Notification of acceptance: 5th January, 2010
   * Camera-ready paper submission deadline: TBD

If you have any questions about the workshop please contact: vissw2010
[at] easychair [dot] org

Cheers,

Tom.

> CALL FOR PAPERS
> ------------------------------
> 2nd International Workshop on Visual Interfaces to the Social and
> Semantic Web (VISSW2010)
> In conjunction with the International Conference on Intelligent User
> Interfaces (IUI2010)
> Hong Kong, 7th February 2010
> http://www.smart-ui.org/events/vissw2010/
>
> INTRODUCTION
> -----------------------
>
> The continued growth and importance of the Social Web has resulted in
> ever increasing volumes of data created, published and consumed by
> users. This vast amount of data takes many forms, including text,
> images, video and more recently streams of status information from
> applications such as Twitter. Not only is this data accessible through
> more traditional means, such as desktop and laptop computers, but also
> via diverse platforms such as mobile phones and set-top boxes that
> bring unique constraints in terms of computing resources and user
> interfaces. Through the increasing availability of Web APIs, data that
> has traditionally been coupled with a specific application may now be
> exposed through novel interfaces developed by third parties, providing
> functionality not previously anticipated by the data owner.
>
> In tandem with the growth of the Social Web, the Web at large has
> experienced a significant evolution into a Web not just of linked
> documents, but also of Linked Data. This development, which exploits
> the Semantic Web technology stack, allows relationships to be
> expressed between items in distributed data sets, paving the way for
> integration of raw data from multiple, heterogeneous sources. Coupled
> with the increasing availability of APIs that expose structured (if
> not linked) data from the Social Web, application developers have a
> wealth of data available to them upon which they can build compelling
> visual interfaces.
>
> The ability to easily integrate vast amounts of data from across the
> Social and Semantic Web raises significant and exciting research
> challenges, not least of which how to provide effective access to and
> navigation across vast, heterogeneous and interconnected data sources.
> However, the need for intelligent and visual human interfaces to this
> evolving Web is not limited simply to the modalities of searching and
> browsing, important as these are. As the Web becomes increasingly
> populated with data, continues to evolve from a read-mainly to a
> read-write medium, and the level of social interaction supported on
> the Web increases, there is also a pressing need to support end-users
> who engage in a wide range of online tasks, such as publishing and
> sharing their own data on the Web.
>
> This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners
> from diverse, complementary fields to discuss the latest research
> results and challenges in designing, implementing, and evaluating
> intelligent interfaces to structured or Linked Data in the context of
> the Social or Semantic Web. The workshop will serve as an opportunity
> for researchers to gain feedback on their work, and to identify
> potential collaborations with their peers. We believe that the
> potential for fostering links between a variety of facets of the IUI
> community will help to ensure an exciting workshop program.

> TOPICS OF INTEREST
> ----------------------------------
>
> Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
>
>    * Interfaces
>          o Novel visualisation of structured, linked and aggregated
> data, originating from multiple sources.
>          o Novel interfaces for high-volume transient data, e.g.
> feeds, streams and sensors.
>          o 'Living' interfaces to constantly evolving data,
> vocabularies, and emerging links between them.
>          o Task-centric interfaces for structured and/or Linked Data.
>          o Interface components for displaying/interacting with
> aggregated, heterogeneous Linked Data, e.g. components for displaying
> provenance information.
>          o Lightweight components and processes for casual users to
> publish/share their own content on the Web.
>          o Ontology-based visualization of collections of data.
>    * Interaction Paradigms
>          o Novel interaction paradigms for textual, photos, music,
> videos, etc. on alternative platforms (e.g. mobile devices, set-top
> boxes, shared/public displays).
>          o Novel interaction paradigms with structured, linked and
> aggregated data.
>          o Investigation of task-centric interaction paradigms beyond
> search and browse.
>          o Ontology-based interaction with collections of data.
>          o Semantic models for interaction and their reuse on the web
>    * Empirical Studies and Evaluation
>          o Empirical studies that can guide the development of
> interfaces for Linked Data.
>          o Use cases which present novel visualization requirements
> and expose interesting interaction challenges on the Social and
> Semantic Web.
>          o Lessons learned from user-studies, pilot systems and live
> deployments in the Social and Semantic Web.
>
> SUBMISSIONS
> -----------------------
>
> We welcome three types of submissions:
>
>    * Full papers which should be between 6 and 10 pages.
>    * Short papers and position papers which should be up to 5 pages.
