*** *Scope* ***

The next generation of the Web will be the semantic Web where
semantic contents of the Web resources will be interpretable not
only by human but also by machine. One popular approach for
Semantic Web consists of describing this semantic contents
through metadata.

Knowledge Management (KM) is one of the key progress factors in
organizations. It involves explicit and persistent representation
of knowledge of (geographically) dispersed groups of people in
the organization, so as to improve the activities of the

When the organization knowledge is distributed among several
experts and documents, the Internet or an Intranet inside the
organization and Web technologies can be a privileged means for
acquisition, modelling, management of this distributed knowledge.
One promising approach relies on the analogy between the resources
constituting a corporate memory and the resources accessible
through the Web.

A corporate memory can thus be materialised in a "corporate
semantic Web" made up of documents, ontologies and semantic
annotations on these documents by using the conceptual vocabulary
of ontologies.

The objective of the workshop is to enable fruitful discussions
between "Semantic Web" and "Knowledge Management" communities,
about possible approaches of knowledge management based on such
corporate semantic Webs.

Long papers or position papers are welcome in any area concerning
knowledge management through corporate semantic Webs.

We specially expect papers discussing about the following issues:
o Role of enterprise models in corporate semantic Webs ?
o What kind of ontologies can be useful for such corporate
    semantic Webs?
o How to build such ontologies ?
o Techniques for (semi-)automatic building of such ontologies or
    annotations from the corporate information sources (such as
    textual or multimedia documents or databases)?
o Possible role of indexing techniques and of thesaurus in a
    corporate semantic Web approach?
o Ontology representation languages for a corporate semantic Web?
o How to tackle multiple viewpoints in a corporate semantic Web?
o Interoperability between ontologies or integration of multiple
o Cooperative building, adaptation and evolution of a corporate
    semantic Web?
o Query languages for a corporate semantic Web, (Intelligent)
    Information retrieval from a corporate semantic Web ?
o Agent-based approaches for building and management of a corporate
    semantic Web and for information retrieval from a corporate
    semantic Web ?
o Users interfaces for building and using a corporate semantic Web?
o Features specific to corporate semantic Web w.r.t. open Semantic
    Web ?
o Concrete applications of corporate semantic Webs ?
o Techniques for optimising metadata storage and query processing
    for a corporate semantic Web?
o Management of multilinguism in a corporate semantic Web.
