Objectives
----------
Semantic Web is a major international research effort with the goal to make web 
content available for intelligent knowledge processing. The Semantic Web draws 
on standard and novel techniques from various disciplines related to Computer 
Science, including Artificial Intelligence, Databases, Internet Technology, 
Software Agents, Ontologies, Knowledge Management and eCommerce. The developed 
and integrated methods and tools  often called Semantic Technologies  are 
generic and have a very large application potential outside the domain of 
Semantic Web.

Applications of Semantic Technologies are currently being investigated in 
various fields, including Ambient Intelligence, Software Engineering, Cognitive 
Systems, Corporate Intranets, Knowledge Management and Bioinformatics. In recent 
years the amount of data published on the Semantic Web as so-called Linked Data 
has exploded. We believe that the methods and tools provided by Semantic 
Technologies will play a crucial role in these and other application areas for 
the foreseeable future, in particular for community-based information platforms.

Topics of Interest
------------------
This workshop shall bring together researchers and practitioners who work on 
applications of Semantic Technologies. It shall further the cross-fertilization 
between application areas and aid the technology transfer from foundational 
research into practice. The workshop shall cover diverse application areas of 
Semantic Technologies, including, but not limited to, the following.

     * Ambient Intelligence
     * Bioinformatics, eHealth and Life Sciences
     * Business Process Management
     * Cognitive Systems
     * Digital Libraries
     * eCommerce
     * eGovernment
     * eScience
     * Grid and Cloud Computing
     * Information Integration
     * Internet of Things
     * Machine Learning
     * Mobile Computing
     * Multimedia Data Management
     * Social Sciences
     * Software Engineering
     * Service-Oriented Computing
     * Service Innovation and Management
     * Text Mining and Information Extraction
     * and any other application area of Semantic Technologies

Along the spotlight topic "Service Science" of Informatik 2011, we specifically 
encourage submissions that cover applications of Semantic Technologies in the 
aforementioned areas of Service-Oriented Computing, Service Innovation and 
Management, Business Process Management and other areas relevant for our 
increasingly services-led economy. We plan to cluster these topics in a 
spotlight session of the AST 2011 workshop.
