Call for Contributions

The Special Interest Group on the Semantic Web and Information Systems of Association for Information systems (AIS SIGSEMIS)  (<http://www.sigsemis.org>) and OPEN RESEARCH SOCIETY (ORS) (<http://www.open-research-society>) seek contributions for a special edition, the Semantic Web Fact Book that is planned to be published (Open Access at no cost) every year on mid April. 

2005 was for Semantic Web community a Great Year. 

Magnificent Events, Excellent performance of SW Research and Competence Centers worldwide, New Publication Outlets, Fantastic Publications, Books on the State of the Art of SW, BIG R&D Projects and amazing Commercial Launches.

We do believe that is an excellent way to communicate to the whole world the evolution of the SW and more over to develop bridges with other disciplines that want to be part of our vision.

Semantic Web for AIS SIGSEMIS is not just a technological matter. Not even a machine-understandable data. It is a paradigm shift of our society towards the exploitation of universal knowledge. 

Types of Contributions:

We developed several templates for contributions:

* Short Article (Two general types. Position documents on the Evolution of the SW in 2005, and position documents on a key theme of SW research and industry agenda)
* Company Presentations (aiming to promote the commercial SW products as well as leading edge research  in Labs)
* Country Report (aiming to describe the SW research in countries. This will give the opportunities for introducing SW community to the world.)
* Event Report (aiming to present key events that took place in 2005 and planned for 2006)
* R&D project report (aiming to communicate research outcomes and to give awareness for the SW through R&D projects - and of course to give opportunities for scientific social networking)


At the end of the book we will have a Yellow Pages Section aiming to summarize: 

* Published Books
* Bibliography of Articles in International Journals (we will develop an ENDNOTE library for this)
* PhD and Master thesis finished in 2005. 

We plan to dedicate one page for each of these types per contributor. 


Special Features

*	Interviews from 3 international well known academics and 2 industry persons
*	Special ads of Journals, Products and 
*	Special offers 

Epilogue

Our special editions aims at helping in communicating and disseminating relevant and recent research on the Semantic Web domain targeting on our society. SW is not a case of a close club of researchers not even a domain for elitism. 

And a Great Thank you

We would like to thank our Community for the great support. Your current contributions exceed by far our expectation. (more than 1000 pages!!).
