> SASTAR Workshop
>
> State of the Art:
> Semantic Technology Adoption Results
>
> co-located with the Asian Semantic Web Conference 2008
> Bangkok, Thailand 8-11 December 2008

>
> Objectives
>
> The goal of the SASTAR workshop is to demonstrate the early adoption
> of semantic technologies by enterprises, and to promote further
> technology transfer from Semantic Web research to industry. It will
> bring industry and research together to present and discuss the pros
> and cons of applying semantic technologies in business processes, not
> only to identify how industrial requirements can be met, but also
> important issues of technology maturity, accessibility, integration
> into existing enterprise IT structures and maintenance throughout the
> entire ontology and metadata lifecycle.
>
> Call for papers
>
> We seek concrete  results from technology transfer from research to
> industry of Semantic Web technologies. In particular, we invite
> researchers to report on their experiences from the application and
> use of semantic technology within business processes.
>
> We want to focus on:
>
>  how semantic technology is being used TODAY in industry
>
>  what still needs to be done by researchers to ensure that it will
> still be getting used TOMORROW (i.e. open requirements that have been
> identified in the transfer)
>
> The workshop provides an opportunity to inform an industry audience of
> real applications of semantic technology for enterprises today and
> gain feedback on open issues and unmet industry requirements.
>
> We plan to have a small number of presentations, a larger number of
> posters/demos and a significant timeslot for discussion (with a short
> keynote).
>
> Posters/demos will be made by technology developers who want to
> showcase semantic solutions in a smaller event with a high potential
> of direct contacts.
>
> Topics of Interest
>
> We aim for a broad range of topics to be covered in terms of their
> industrial value and barriers to uptake, including (but not limited
> to):
>
>  Ontology Engineering,
>  Metadata Extraction,
>  Reasoning,
>  Mediation,
>  Data Integration,
>  Semantic Web Services,
>  Search and Personalization,
>  Ontology methodologies in business practice,
>  Ontologies and corporate knowledge,
>  Representation of knowledge and business processes,
>  Linguistic representation in organizational knowledge,
>  Enterprise modelling,
>  Ontology evaluation
>  Ontologies and electronic catalogs,
>  Ontologies and e-commerce,
>  Ontologies in the practice of engineering,
>  Ontologies in the practice of medical sciences,
>  Ontologies in finance, Ontologies and e-government.
>
> Important Dates
>
> 15 September 2008 - Paper Submission
> 30 September 2008 - Notification of Acceptance
> 15 October 2008 - Camera Ready
>
> Submission
>
> Workshop submissions will be electronic and should follow the ASWC
> 2008 guidelines.
>
> Both researchers and practitioners can submit papers in two forms:
>
> 1) papers which might be accepted as theoretical or case study
> presentations (up to 6 pages). These should come from industry
> scenarios, presenting examples of semantic technologies adoption, new
> theoretical (both organizational and computer science) open problems,
> industry requirements, or other business experiences.
>
> 2) poster-demos which might be accepted as application presentations
> (up to 2 pages). The content should come from European, American or
> Asian technology providers, presenting examples of industry-suitable
> semantic tools. It is required a short description of the tool,
> justifying its usefulness in industry and describing the demo that
> will be made.
>
> The workshop proceeding format is LNCS (ASWC) see the conference website.
>
> Papers and poster-demos will be submitted to the EasyChair conference
> system available soon on line .
