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

                  Semantic-Based Resource 
              Discovery, Retrieval and Composition
                  TECHNICAL TRACK at the
            22nd ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
                       SAC 2007


SAC 2007

For the past twenty-one years, the ACM Sym-posium on Applied Computing has
been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer
engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the
world. SAC 2007 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied
Computing (SIGAPP), and is hosted by Seoul National University in Seoul and
The Suwon University in Gyeonggi-do.


This track aims at gathering researchers from various fields, spanning from
web/mobile services discovery and composition, to intelligent multimedia
retrieval, to planning in artificial intelligence, to matchmaking in
electronic commerce. We envisage the following topics as central for the

- retrieval of resource descriptions
- knowledge management
- supply chain formation
- web/mobile service discovery and composition
- node discovery in P2P networks
- matchmaking of resource request and resource providers
- planning and scheduling
- semantic-based resource negotiation
- semantic annotation for multimedia
- information integration
- semantic grid 

All these topics share as central the notion of "Semantically-annotated
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.


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

- Paper Submission deadline - Sept. 8, 2006
- Notification of acceptance - October 16, 2006
- Camera-ready version deadline - October 30, 2006
- Track Date - March 11 - 15, 2007
