The third IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC2009)
continues to foster the growth of a new research community. The conference
builds on the success of ICSC2007 and ICSC2008 as an international forum for
researchers and practitioners to present research that advances the state of
the art and practice of Semantic Computing, as well as identifying the
emerging research topics and defining the future of the field. The event is
located in Berkeley, California. The technical program of ICSC2009 includes
workshops, invited keynotes, paper presentations, panel discussions, and
more. Submissions of high-quality papers describing mature results or
on-going work are invited.

The field of Semantic Computing addresses the derivation and matching of the
semantics of computational content to that of naturally expressed user
intentions in order to retrieve, manage, manipulate or even create content,
where "content" may be anything including video, audio, text, processes,
services, hardware, networks, etc.

Areas of interest include:

Semantic Analysis

    * Natural language processing
    * Image and video analysis
    * Audio and speech analysis
    * Data and web mining
    * Analysis of behaviors of software, services and networks
    * Analysis of social networks


Semantic Integration

    * Metadata and other description languages
    * Database schema integration
    * Ontology integration
    * Interoperability and service integration


Semantic Applications

    * Semantic programming languages and software engineering
    * Semantic system design and synthesis
    * Search engines and question answering
    * Semantic web services
    * Content-based multimedia retrieval and editing
    * Context-aware networks of sensors, devices and applications
    * Human centered communications
    * Semantic trusted computing
    * Semantic GIS systems


Semantic Interfaces

    * Natural language interfaces
    * Multimodal interfaces


The main goal of the conference is to foster the dialog between experts in
each of these disciplines. Therefore we especially encourage submissions of
work that is interesting to multiple areas, such as multimodal approaches.
