Thanks to Heiko and Roberto for finalising a workshop cfp which was
recently accepted
but the deadline is terribly close (7 Feb) and time going ever so quickly

We do need people on this list to PLEASE start promoting the cfpapers
for both workshop and special issue, to make sure we have enough

Ideas for publicity?   Anyone planning to submit?

I should I do a propitiatory dance in my next video  address to this

BTW- I think we can consider them both 'group activities' since many
individuals in
this group are also members of the PC for either/both initiatives. it would
be GREAT contribution
for anyone else who has not yet worked out how to contribute to this WG to
and/or submit the cfp

Ideas and suggestions welcome

I take this opportunity to remind everyone that we are hoping to get your
input on this group activity via a form posted on this list a few weeks ago
(check thread for urls) or any other way yed like to give input, including
a video statement
thank ya all once again for joining the group, and wishing you decent
winter holidays.

Let's think of the chair/vicechair schedule thing and other plans in the
new year



Workshop on Human-Semantic Web Interaction (HSWI’13)The adoption of
Semantic Web technologies implies new challenges for user interaction
beyond those already posed by Web technologies and interactive systems in
general. HSWI workshop aims to explore and evaluate good practices in
interface design, and ultimately feed into possible recommendations for
standardizing and consolidating knowledge and good practices into a set of
guidelines for semantic web developers, to ensure the usability and
reasonably functional user experiences of the next generation of Semantic
Web applications. Fact Sheet

   interfaces for semanticapplications
   - Natural Language Interfaces
   - Interaction styles and requirements, including new/emergent types of

Submission Types and Publication

For providing a forum for sharing novel ideas, HSWI welcomes a broad
spectrum of contributions, including for example:

   - Full research papers
   - Position papers
   - Case Studies
   - Descriptions of Experiments
