ISWC WORKSHOPS
==============

The ISWC 2007 Program Committee invites proposals for the Workshop
Program of ISWC 2007, the Sixth International Semantic Web Conference,
to be held November 11-15, 2007, in Busan, Korea. Workshops will be held
on 11-12 November.


GOALS
=====

The purpose of the workshops is to provide an informal setting for
workshop participants to discuss technical issues, to exchange research
ideas, and to develop a community in the quickly emerging field of the
Semantic Web.

We are looking for workshops that encourage discussions on social and
business requirements and how semantic web technologies can be made
easier to deploy and operationalize in real world scenarios. These
workshops are expected to complement those that focus on fundamental
research issues and multi-disciplinary topics. Workshop proposals should
address current issues related to the Semantic Web that will benefit
from small-group information exchange and discussion. Workshops are
intended to be genuine interactive events and not mini-conferences. We
welcome workshops with creative structures and organizations that
attract various types of contributions and ensure rich interactions.


We expect to have a wide range of workshops, including those that

- focus on a specific domain of activity, e.g., finance, telecom, life
science, digital government, etc.

- investigate social and collaborative issues and best practices with
respect to constructing and publishing Semantic Web knowledge structures,

- focus on fundamental research issues,

- discuss multi-disciplinary topics that bring together researchers from
different disciplines,

- support the interaction of research and industry for the deployment
and operationalization of Semantic Web applications.

time.
