>>
>> 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
>>
>> http://fandango.cs.unitn.it/net-economy/SASTAR/index.htm
>>
>> 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 .
