Second IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing 


August 4th-7th,  2008, Santa Clara, CA, USA



Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society


The field of Semantic Computing (SC) brings together those disci-

plines concerned with connecting the  (often  vaguely-formulated)

intentions  of humans with computational content. This connection

can go both ways: retrieving,  using  and  manipulating  existing

content according to user's goals ("do what the user means"); and

creating, rearranging, and managing content that matches the  au-

thor's intentions ("do what the author means").


The  content  addressed  in  SC  includes, but is not limited to,

structured and semi-structured data, multimedia data, text,  pro-

grams, services and, even, network behavior.  This connection be-

tween content and the user is made  via  (1)  Semantic  Analysis,

which  analyzes content with the goal of converting it to meaning

(semantics); (2) Semantic Integration, which  integrates  content

and  semantics  from multiple sources; (3) Semantic Applications,

which utilize content and semantics to solve  problems;  and  (4)

Semantic Interfaces, which attempt to interpret users' intentions

expressed in natural language or other communicative forms.


Example areas of SC include (but, again, are not limited to) the




 Natural-language processing

 Image and video analysis

 Audio and speech analysis

 Analysis of structured and semi-structured data

 Analysis of behavior of software, services, and networks



 Database schema integration

 Ontology integration

 Interoperability and Service Integration



 Natural-Language Interface

 Multimodal Interfaces



 Semantic Web and other search technologies

 Question answering

 Semantic Web services

 Multimedia databases

 Engineering of software, services, and networks based on

   natural-language specifications

 Context-aware networks of sensors, devices, and/or applications


The second IEEE International Conference  on  Semantic  Computing

(ICSC2008)  builds on the success of ICSC2007 as an international

interdisciplinary forum  for  researchers  and  practitioners  to

present  research that advances the state of the art and practice

of Semantic Computing, as well as identifying  the  emerging  re-

search topics and defining the future of Semantic Computing.  The

conference particularly welcomes interdisciplinary research  that

facilitates the ultimate success of Semantic Computing.


The  event  is  located  in Santa Clara, California, the heart of

Silicon Valley.  The technical program of ICSC2008 includes tuto-

rials,  workshops, invited talks, paper presentations, panel dis-

cussions, demo sessions, and an industry track.   Submissions  of

high-quality  papers  describing  mature results or on-going work

are invited.


In addition to Technical Papers, the conference will feature

    * Tutorials,

    * Workshops,

    * Demo Sessions,

    * Special Sessions,

    * Panels,

    * and an Industry Track.


Please  refer  to the conference website for further information:




Authors are invited to submit an 8-page technical paper manuscript

in double-column IEEE format following the guidelines available on the

ICSC2008 web page under "submissions".


The Conference Proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer

Society Press.  Distinguished quality papers presented at the con-

ference will be selected for publications in internationally renowned



There will be a Best Paper Award and a Best Student Paper Award for

the best submitted paper and the best submitted student paper. The

award winners will be announced at the conference banquet.
