                          Workshop on 
    Applications of Semantic Web Technologies for E-learning
                                             
                                             
                 in conjunction with ISWC 2004:                   
             International Semantic Web Conference
            (7 - 11 November 2004, Hiroshima, Japan) 
    http://iswc2004.semanticweb.org/CFParticipation/workshops.html

        http://wwwis.win.tue.nl/SW-EL04/swel-iswc.html
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    
    This workshop will focus on the engineering and application 
    of Semantic Web technologies and standards for the needs of 
    e-learning and will discuss issues with respect to various 
    ways of constructing intelligent courseware and modelling 
    the learner. 
    
    SWEL'04 follows the successful workshop on Concepts and 
    Ontologies in Web-based Educational Systems, held in 
    conjunctions with ICCE'02 in Auckland, New Zealand.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Workshop Goals
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    - To discuss the current state-of-the-art of the applications 
      of Semantic Web technologies and standards in Intelligent 
      Educational Systems and e-learning applications.
    - To attract the interest of the related research communities 
      to the problems in educational Web-based systems and serve 
      as an international platform for knowledge exchange and 
      cooperation between researchers.  
    - To provide feedback to educational and Semantic Web 
      standardization bodies.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Workshop Topics
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
    
    * Using ontologies and/or Semantic Web technologies within 
      e-learning applications:
        -- to support authoring of WBES;
        -- to achieve better personalization/adaptation in WBES;
        -- to achieve interoperability of e-learning applications;
    
    * Using Semantic Web services for:
        -- e-learning services;
        -- user modelling;
        -- WBES authoring;
    
    * Web standards issues for WBES 
        -- combinations of existing Semantic Web and/or 
           educational standards;
        -- mappings between Semantic Web and educational standards;
        -- moving LOM and SCORM closer to the Semantic Web;
        -- Role of RDF, OWL or TML as a basis for educational 
           metadata specification languages;
    
    * Ontology engineering and knowledge representation in WBES;
      
    * Semantic Web-based educational applications architectures.
    
    * Real-world systems, case studies and empirical research for WBES. 
    
    The topics can be approached from different perspectives: 
    theoretical, systems engineering, application, case study, 
    system evaluation, etc. All contributions are required to state 
    explicitly in the abstract which topic they are addressing.
