Semantic Web Workshop

Workshop at SIGIR 2004 (http://www.sigir.org/sigir2004)

27th Annual International ACM SIGIR Conference
July 25 - 29, 2004, Sheffield, UK

The emergence of the Internet has brewed the revolution of information 
storage and retrieval. The web was initially designed for direct human 
processing. With its current structure, machine-based approaches to web 
applications are not possible unless its content is transformed into a 
machine-readable format encoding semantic information. Ontologies are the 
backbone technology for the Semantic Web by providing machine-processable 
semantics of data and information sources that can be communicated between 
different agents. The Semantic Web goes beyond the simple bag-of-words 
approach used by most search engines and get closer to the meaning of the 
texts. Semantic Web initiatives have met with growing enthusiasm of 
researchers and developers world-wide, both in academia and in industry, 
which encourages the integration of efforts that have been ongoing from 
different disciplines, involving specialists in Information Retrieval, 
Natural Language Processing, Information Extraction, Knowledge 
Representation, Artificial Intelligence and Database. These efforts are 
aimed at capturing the semantics of digital content of all sorts and 
origins, and making current Web to be easily accessed and precisely retrieved.

Information retrieval can benefit from building ontologies and other 
semantic structures, making it possible to have a better understanding of 
the application domains and the user queries. On the other hand, the 
Information Retrieval field has a lot to bring
to the Semantic Web community, based on 30 years of research and 
development of large-scale retrieval system and their evaluation. This 
workshop aims to bring researchers from the two communities together, to 
facilitate a discussion and to consult each other on common problems.

This is the 2nd edition of the workshop. The first one was held in Toronto, 
Canada, in conjunction with SIGIR2003, and turned out to be very successful.

Topics of interest may include (but not limited to):

-	Ontology-based Information Retrieval or Semantic Information Retrieval
-	Metadata in Information Retrieval
-	Ontology Learning based on Information Extraction and Natural Language 
Processing Technologies
-	Automatic Indexing and Cataloguing
-	Information Retrieval and Web Services
-	Languages, Tools and Methodologies for Semantic Annotations
-	Knowledge Portals
-	Semantic Web Mining
-	Semantic Web Searching and Querying
-	Semantic Web for multimedia retrieval
-	Semantic Web for multilingual information retrieval
-	Semantic Web for digital library
-	Semantic Interoperability and integration
-	Semantic Web and Peer-to-Peer
-	Semantic Web for Information Visualization
-	Peer-to-Peer for Information Retrieval
-	User studies for Semantic Web
-	Business applications and best of practice
