======================= CALL FOR PAPERS ===================================

                   Semantic-Based Resource
              Discovery, Retrieval and Composition
                           RDRC
              http://sisinflab.poliba.it/sac2006/

                  Technical Track at the
            21st ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
                       SAC 2006

The Semantic-Based Resource Discovery, Retrieval and Composition -- RDRC
track aims at gathering researchers from various fields, spanning from
matchmaking in electronic commerce, to intelligent multimedia retrieval,
to planning in artificial intelligence, to web services discovery and
composition. We envisage the following topics as central for the track:

- matchmaking of resource request and resource providers
- planning and scheduling
- semantic-based resource negotiation
- semantic-based resource negotiation
- retrieval of resource descriptions
- semantic annotation for multimedia
- information integration
- supply chain formation
- knowledge management
- web-service discovery and composition
- semantic grid
- combinatorial auctions

All these topics share as central the notion of "Resource" in general
searching problems with respect to a request. A resource is a broad term
comprising goods in electronic commerce, information available in remote
sites, services announced through Internet, learning objects, digital
images, to mention a few. Whatever their nature, the term "resource" is
used in a general sense for whatever might be identified atomically and
univocally. Hence, the problem of resource matching and retrieval arises
in several scenarios. The front-end of a resource is always a description
of what the resource is, what it provides, who can access it, possibly
with side economic constraints. All this information can be semantically
annotated, either directly in XML, or using some upper strata for defining
standard terms as in ebXML, or OWL-S. While semantic annotation rules out
ambiguities of Natural Language, the problem raises about how well a single
resource fits a particular request, or whether there is a pool of resources
which - suitably composed - cover a request. Side economic conditions in
resource descriptions, such as cost, method of payment, payments delay, can
make compositions difficult to be properly formed, while economic constraints
in resource request usually filter out some solutions.


Authors are invited to submit original papers related, but not limited to,
the proposed track topics. Submissions fall into the following categories:

- Original and unpublished research work
- Reports of innovative computing applications in the arts, sciences,
engineering, and business areas
- Reports of successful technology transfer to new problem domains
- Reports of industrial experience and demos of new innovative systems

Peer groups with expertise in the track focus area will blindly review
submissions to that track. Accepted papers will be published in the annual
conference proceedings.


IMPORTANT DATES

The proposed schedule of important dates for the track is as follows:

- September 3, 2005 Paper Submission deadline
- October 15, 2005 Notification of acceptance
- November 5, 2005 Camera-ready version deadline
- April 23-27, 2006 Track Date
