CALL FOR PAPERS:
INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON SEMANTIC WEB FOUNDATIONS AND APPLICATION TECHNOLOGIES
Nara, Japan
<http://www-kasm.nii.ac.jp/SWFAT/>

MARCH 12th 2003
(Joint-poster session to be held on 11th March)

To be held in conjunction with the Semantic web and Data mining 
Symposium hosted by the
Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research (ISIR), Osaka 
University March 10th - 11th.


INTRODUCTION

The Semantic Web is the key technology that will provide a foundation 
of future communication of information on the World Wide Web. The 
Semantic Web aims to develop standards, software and policies that 
will allow computers to share and understand data on the Web and 
thereby facilitate human access to useful information. As an 
indication of the significance of this new technology, funding 
agencies in the USA and EU have provided significant support to major 
projects as well as promotion of international cooperative efforts.

The SWFAT workshop in Japan will focus on two major issues related to 
Semantic Web. The first is the need to coordinate academic activities 
such as ontology theory with future business applications.  The 
second is the crucial need to raise awareness of Semantic Web 
technology and key research issues in the Asia and Pacific region. As 
such we hope to bring together leading players in academia and 
industry from the US, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region to share 
experience and begin to develop a common vision for the future.

The Workshop will be held on March 12th, immediately after the 
Semantic web and Data mining Symposium hosted by the Institute of 
Scientific and Industrial Research (ISIR), Osaka University  on March 
10th to 11th, providing three days of high-quality presentations, 
invited talks and discussions.


CALL FOR PAPERS

The workshop will include contributed papers, system presentations 
(oral and poster type) and a panel discussion.  We solicit papers 
relevant to the workshop topics in two categories:

1. Technical papers

Papers should not exceed 6000 words and should describe original 
research (practical or theoretical) that contributes to the 
realization of the Semantic Web.

2. Short position papers

Papers should not exceed 2000 words and should describe an 
implemented tool or service or a report on sufficiently advanced 
research that contributes to the realization of the Semantic Web. 
There will be a limited number of slots available in the program for 
these papers to be given as oral presentations.  In the submission 
email please indicate whether you wish to present your paper in 
poster, oral, or either format.  Note that there is no difference in 
status between either poster or oral presentations - it is only that 
the format may be more appropriate. The poster session will be held 
jointly with the Symposium at Osaka University on the 11th March.

Both category (1) and (2) submissions must be original and not 
submitted concurrently for consideration in another publication or 
journal or to another conference or workshop.  In the case of dispute 
the decision of the program chair will be final.
