Call for Papers

Track "Semantic Web in Information Systems"

at the 16th European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS 2008)

Galway, Ireland, June 9-11, 2008



Submission deadline: November 30, 2007 (extended)

The European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS) series is the most
important European conference on information systems research. For the
third time, there will be a special track for research issues in
combining Semantic Web and Information Systems topics.

Track Description:
Ontologies, understood as consensual models of a domain of discourse
with some degree of formal semantics, are a research topic of growing
interest in several research communities, and their potential
contribution to core problems of information systems as a discipline is
widely acknowledged. In the past few years, the Semantic Web communities
have brought to maturity a comprehensive set of foundational technology
components, both at the conceptual level and in the form of prototypes
and software. These include, among other assets, ontology engineering
methodologies, standardised ontology languages, ontology engineering
tools, and other infrastructure like APIs, repositories, and scalable
reasoners, plus a plethora of work for making the Deep Web and
computational functionality in the form of Web Services accessible at a
semantic level. However, Semantic Web technology is only recently being
picked up by information systems researchers and practitioners, despite
the fact that many problems of data and process management in
enterprises and value chains can be traced back to representational
mismatches. On the other hand, we can observe that the Semantic Web
research communities in computer science have not yet addresses the
economic dimensions and the conceptual complexity of real-world
integration challenges.

In this conference track, we aim at providing a venue for research that
transfers the foundational research from the Semantic Web movement into
the information systems domain, and extends the state of the art in
ontology research by explicitly considering the economic dimension. The
track is supported by the AIS Special Interest Group on Semantic Web and
Information Systems (AIS SIGSEMIS).

Suggested topics:
Relevant topics include but are not limited to the following:

    1. Cost and benefit models for ontologies in information systems;
    2. Ontology-based content integration tasks in business and public
sector applications, e.g. catalog data integration, spend analysis, or
corporate search;
    3. Semantic business process management;
    4. Ontologies in modeling and systems analysis;
    5. Semantics-supported business intelligence;
    6. Ontology support for
          - Corporate knowledge management,
          - Customer relationship management (CRM),
          - Decision support systems,
          - E-procurement,
          - Enterprise application integration,
          - Human resources management,
          - Legal applications,
          - Specification and monitoring of service-level agreements, or
          - Supply chain management.
