Last Call for Papers STICA06

1st International Workshop on Semantic Technologies in Collaborative
Applications STICA06

  at the

15th IEEE International Workshops on Enabling Technologies: Infrastructures for
Collaborative Enterprises (WETICE-2006)

The University of Manchester, Manchester, U.K. (26th-28th June 2006)

MOTIVATION
==================
With distributed information systems and the Internet continually increasing in
significance, collaboratively creating and managing information has become an
essential requirement for the success of (virtual) organizations. This
situation has led to a plethora of platforms supporting cooperation as well as
joint information access among geographically dispersed user communities that
have emerged in the last decades: collaborative information spaces,
tele-cooperation, autonomous agents or, more recently, various Web-related
forms of communication and cooperation such as discussion forums, community
portals, Wikis and blogs.

A fundamental requirement for an effective collaboration is the availability of
technologies and tools which provide an explicit and unambiguous representation
of the shared information and a feasible management of such semantics-enhanced
information repositories.  The emergence of the Semantic Web has marked an
important stage in the evolution of semantic technologies.  In this context the
knowledge components i.e. ontologies are formalized using Web-suitable, but in
the same time semantically unambiguous representation languages, are accessible
and can be shared and reused across the World Wide Web.

The Semantic Web offers new opportunities for the next generation of
collaborative applications: it provides us with novel means to classify
information items i.e. by means of ontologies which formally represent the
consensual understanding of the application users w.r.t. a particular domain of
interest. Taking advantage of this technology, the first promising
implementations of Semantic Web-based collaboration platforms such as Semantic
Web portals, semantic Wikis and blogs, to name only a few, have been proposed.

This workshop aims at contributing to this young application field by providing
a forum for practitioners and researchers to present innovative approaches to
applying Semantic Web technologies in collaborative environments and to discuss
the opportunities and challenges related to this topic.

OBJECTIVES
================
The primary objective of this workshop is to gather researchers and
practitioners working in different emerging aspects of semantics-enabled
collaboration, ranging from discovering new application scenarios, proposing
new methods to apply Semantic Web and related emerging technologies to current
environments, pointing out issues that still need to be solved, and reporting
results and experiences gained during the deployment of collaborative methods
and the realization of support systems.

TOPICS OF INTEREST
=================
We invite original academic and industry contributions which report on issues
related to semantic collaboration. Topics of interest include but are not
limited to:

-- Methodologies for collaboratively creating and managing shared information
-- Collaborative ontology engineering
-- Semantic collaboration applications
-- Collaborative Semantic Web portals
-- Semantic community support systems
-- Semantic Wikis
-- Semantic Blogging
-- Semantic Mindmapping and Conceptmapping
-- Case studies, lessons learned and experience reports on semantics-aware
collaborative applications
-- Studies on the value added to collaboration by semantic technologies
-- Future research directions in the area of semantic collaboration

SUBMISSION AND PROCEEDINGS
==================
Submission of papers takes place electronically. Detailed submission
instructions are announced on the homepage of the workshop at
http://nbi.inf.fu-berlin.de/conf/STICA06.

The papers should be submitted in PDF format and should not exceed 6 pages in
IEEE format (this will also be the page limit for the proceedings).

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by a minimum of three people.

The accepted papers and the summary report on the workshop will be published in
the post-conference proceedings and directly mailed to the registered authors
by the IEEE Computer Press after the conference. Please note that in order for
an accepted paper to be published in the conference proceedings at least one of
its authors is required to register and present the paper at WETICE-2006.

IMPORTANT DATES

Deadline for paper submission: ** NEW ** February 24, 2006
Decision to paper authors: April 7, 2006
Final version of accepted papers due to IEEE: May 12, 2006
