Call for Participation - first European Semantic Web Symposium ESWS2004 
- 10-12 May 2004, Crete, Greece

http://www.esws2004.org/

------------------------------------------------------------------------
On-line registration is open until May 7th 2004 at http://www.esws2004.org/
------------------------------------------------------------------------

The vision of the Semantic Web is to enhance today's web via the 
exploitation of machine-processable meta data. The explicit 
representation of the semantics of data, accompanied with domain 
theories (ontologies), will enable a web that provides a qualitatively 
new level of service. It will weave together an incredibly large network 
of human knowledge and will complement it with machine processability. 
Various automated services will help the user achieve goals by accessing 
and providing information in machine-understandable form. This process 
may ultimately create extremely knowledgeable systems with various 
specialized reasoning services systems. Many technologies and 
methodologies are being developed within Artificial Intelligence, Human 
Language Technology, Machine Learning, Databases, Software Engineering 
and Information Systems that can contribute towards the realization of 
this vision.

In the European context, the 6th framework programme has demonstrated 
the EU's commitment to this technology area and a number of exciting new 
projects in the Semantic Web area have been launched, aggregated in the 
SDK project cluster - see http://www.sdk-cluster.org/ for further 
details. A tutorial programme, based around these projects, offers the 
opportunity to get up to speed with European and global developments in 
this exciting new area. All 6th framework projects, as well as other 
leading projects, in the Semantic Web area will be represented with 
posters. The conference will be co-located with the OntoWeb thematic 
network seminar and the Knowledge Web network of excellence meeting  
see http://www.ontoweb.org/ and http://knowledgeweb.semanticweb.org/ for 
further details of OntoWeb and Knowledge Web events, respectively.
