WORKSHOP
SEMANTIC WEB TECHNOLOGIES 
22-23 November 2000, in Luxembourg
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION (see also:
http://www.cordis.lu/ist/ka3/iaf/swt_workshop.htm)


Unit D5 of DG 'Information Society' of the European Commission is
planning a one-and-a-half-day workshop on 22-23 November 2000, in
Luxembourg, to identify and discuss R&D priorities related to SEMANTIC
WEB Technologies for applications in e.g. Knowledge Management, Web
retrieval/navigation and e-Commerce.

Topics addressed include:

- Methods and tools for coding and structuring digital content, for
defining and declaring its semantics (based on e.g. XML, RDF, ontology
languages, etc.).

- Methods and tools for the derivation and management of semantic
attributes of Web-based multimedia content (video, audio and images).

- Semantics-based tools for knowledge discovery, transactions and
intelligent filtering and profiling (e.g. intelligent information agents
and specific query languages; semantics-based tools for collaborative
filtering and knowledge sharing, intelligent and/or visual interfaces to
such tools).

These topics will form part of the 2001 Action Line 'Semantic Web
Technologies' proposed  under Area 4 (Information Access, Filtering,
Analysis and Handling) of Key Action III (Multimedia Content and Tools)
of the European Union's IST Programme.

The workshop is aimed at researchers and technology developers, as well
as at organisations interested in setting up demonstrations of new
technologies and applications. It will provide an opportunity to
contribute to the research agenda of an area of growing importance, and
to establish contacts with potential project partners.

A draft programme and the registration form are attached below. 

(They are also available for download at 
ftp://ftp.cordis.lu/pub/ist/docs/ka3/ka3_swt_draft_prog.doc and

Attendance is free. Travel costs, however, cannot be reimbursed.

Participants are invited (and indeed strongly encouraged) to give short
presentations (between 5 and 15 minutes) of project ideas and/or ongoing
projects. In case you wish to give a short presentation please indicate
on the registration form the title of your talk and its approximate
length. Your talk will be scheduled on a best fit basis in the final
programme.

The registration form should in any event be returned before 31 October
