ISWC 2007 Research Track: Call for Papers

The World-Wide Web continues to grow and new technologies, modes
of interactions, and applications are being developed. Building on
this growth, Semantic Web technologies aim at providing a shared
semantic information space, changing qualitatively our experiences
on the Web. As Semantic Web technologies mature and permeate more
and more application areas, new research challenges are coming to
the fore and some unsolved ones are becoming more acute. These
issues include creating and managing Semantic Web content, making
Semantic Web applications robust and scalable, organizing and
integrating information from different sources for novel uses,
making semantics explicit in order to improve our overall
experience with information technologies, and thus enabling us
to  use the wealth of information that is currently available in
digital form for addressing our everyday tasks. To foster the
exchange of ideas and collaboration, the International Semantic
Web Conference brings together researchers in relevant disciplines
such as artificial intelligence, databases, social networks,
distributed computing, web engineering, information systems,
natural language processing, and human-computer interaction.

In addition to this call for papers for the research track, ISWC
2007 will include a Semantic Web In Use track, a poster and
demonstration track, a doctoral consortium, and a special
competition known as the Semantic Web Challenge. The calls for
those tracks can be found on the ISWC 2007 Web site,

The research track of ISWC 2007 solicits the submission of original,
principled research papers dealing with both analytical theoretical
and practical aspects of Semantic Web research. Topics include, but
are not limited to:

  * Applications of the Semantic Web
    - Applications with clear lessons learned
    - Evaluation of Semantic Web technologies
    - Semantic Web for e-business, e-science, e-government,
      e-learning, and other application domains
    - Semantic Web technologies for multimedia content
    - Personal Information Management
  * Management of Semantic Web Data
    - Languages, tools and methodologies for representing and
       managing Semantic Web data
    - Database technologies for the Semantic Web
    - Search, query, and visualization of the Semantic Web
    - Robust and scalable knowledge management and reasoning on
      the Web
    - Machine learning and human language technologies for the
      Semantic Web
    - Semantic Web content creation, annotation, and extraction
  * Ontologies
    - Ontology creation, extraction, and evolution
    - Ontology mapping, merging, and alignment
    - Evaluation and tanking of ontologies
    - Ontology search
  * Semantic Web Architecture
    - Semantic Web middleware
    - Semantic Web services
    - Agents on the Semantic Web
    - Semantics in peer-to-peer systems and grids
  * Social Semantic Web
    - Social networks and processes on the Semantic Web
    - Semantic web technology for collaboration and cooperation
    - Representing and reasoning about trust, privacy, and security

Paper submissions must be formatted in the style of the Springer
Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
For complete details, see Springer's Author Instructions

Papers need to be submitted electronically through the conference
submission site <http://iswc2007.semanticweb.org>. Papers must be
submitted in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) format. Papers
will not be accepted in any other format. Formatted papers must be
no longer than 14 pages. Papers that exceed this limit will be
rejected without review. ISWC 2007 will not accept research papers
that, at the time of submission, are under review for or have
already been published in or accepted for publication in a journal
or another conference. Authors of accepted papers will be required
to provide semantic annotations for the abstract of their
submission for the Semantic Web (help will be provided for this
task). Details will be provided on the conference Web page at the
time of acceptance. At least one author of each accepted paper
must register for the conference.
