Asian Web conference is in collision with Web Intelligence 
http://datamining.it.uts.edu.au/conferences/wi08/, is somebody going to 
submit? I will try.

>>>> ==============================
>>>> =====================================
>>>>
>>>>
>>>> Workshop Objectives
>>>> ===================
>>>> The Semantic Web is the vision of a Web of data usable for both humans
>>>> but also machines. This web, consists of inter-connected instance data
>>>> annotated with possibly expressive ontologies.  Therefore a tremendous
>>>> amount of information becomes available that should be processed based
>>>> on formal semantics attached to it. The Semantic Web community has
>>>> developed a number of languages (such as RDF, RDF Schema, OWL) that
>>>> deploy logic for this purpose. Impressive progress has been made on
>>>> scalable storage, querying and inference for these languages, and they
>>>> are successfully being deployed on large intranets and medium-scale
>>>> web-applications.
>>>>
>>>> However existing reasoning techniques often fail to live up to the
>>>> expectations put into them in this context. They can often neither deal
>>>> with high number of instances, the expressiveness of the ontologies
>>>> describing them or the inherent inconsistency and incompleteness of data
>>>> on the Web.
>>>>
>>>> This workshop is intended to focus on these problems of scalability and
>>>> robustness of reasoning on the Web, and furthermore to investigate
>>>> alternative reasoning methods, which take incompleteness and
>>>> distribution of data and knowledge as inherent properties into account.
>>>>
>>>> NeForS08 is the follow-up of the first international workshop on "New
>>>> forms of reasoning for the Semantic Web: scalable, tolerant and
>>>> dynamic", which took place in Busan, Korea in November 2007 and was
>>>> co-located with the 6th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC
>>>> 2007) and 2nd Asian Semantic Web Conference (ASWC 2007).
>>>>
>>>>
>>>> Topics of Interest
>>>> ==================
>>>> We welcome all research contributions that address one or more of the
>>>> following topics:
>>>> * Reasoning for the Web
>>>> * Querying and searching
>>>> * Scalability to the Web level
>>>> * Efficient storage of structured data that scale to a very large size
>>>>
>>>> We also aim to attract participants from scientific fields not typically
>>>> seen at Semantic Web events:
>>>> * Economics can tell us about cost-benefit trade-off models, sunk-cost
>>>> theory and the role of negotiation in obtaining near-optimal results
>>>> under bounded resources
>>>> * Cognitive Science can tell us about strategies of human memory and
>>>> human reasoning which is so succesful in reaching good enough conclusion
>>>> in limited time-spans, using methods such as priming, attention scoping,
>>>> recency-based self-optimising memory, etc.
>>>> * Computational Learning Theory has contributions to make with their
>>>> notions of Probably Approximately Correct (PAC) computing, and
>>>> strategies for abstraction and compression of information.
>>>> * Combinatorial Search has made recent breakthroughs in handling massive
>>>> search-spaces with heuristics based on Monte Carlo simulations.

>>>>
>>>> Event Information
>>>> =================
>>>> The workshop will take place during the 3rd Asian Semantic Web
>>>> Conference (ASWC2008) as a full-day event.
>>>> It will be organized as a full day event and include an invited talk by
>>>> Kyung-il Tony Lee, president and CEO of Saltlux Inc. on the industrial
>>>> view on semantic technologies and the need for large-scale reasoning.
>>>>
>>>> Please note that for every accepted paper at least one of the authors
>>>> must attend the workshop and must register for the workshop and the main
>>>> conference.
>>>> Submission of a paper is not required for attendance at the workshop.
>>>> However, in the event that the workshop cannot accommodate all who would
>>>> like to participate, those who have submitted a paper will be given
>>>> priority.
>>>>
>>>>
>>>> Submissions
>>>> ===========
>>>> The workshop invites full papers (up to 15 pages) as well as short
>>>> papers (up to 5 pages). All contributions will be peer reviewed by the
>>>> program commitee (see http://nefors08.larkc.eu) and accepted submissions
>>>> will be published in a dedicated book. The number of accepted papers
>>>> will be kept deliberately low in order to leave sufficient time for
>>>> discussion after presentations.
>>>> Additionally  we are considering a special issue in a journal on
>>>> semantic computing for extended versions of selected, high quality
>>>> submissions.
>>>>
>>>> Submitted papers must be written in English and one of the following
>>>> format must be used for the first submission: PDF, PS, DOC. For
>>>> submissions please follow LNCS formatting instructions (see
>>>> http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-2-72376-0 for details)
>>>> to prepare your paper and consider using the camera ready format even
>>>> for the first submission.
>>>>
>>>> Furthermore papers need to be submitted electronically through the
>>>> EasyChair using the following link:
>>>> http://www.easychair.org/conferences?conf=nefors08
>>>>
>>>>
>>>> Important Dates
>>>> ===============
>>>> * September 15, 2008: Submission of papers
>>>> * September 30, 2008: Notification of acceptance
>>>> * October 15, 2008: Camera-ready version due
>>>> * December 8, 2008: Workshop
