>  Semantic Web is an inherently multi-disciplinary field. The Artificial
>  Intelligence community has contributed much in the way of formal logic and
>  knowledge representation. Similarly, the applied computer science
>  community, along with industry and government agencies, have contributed
>  with application development and testing. With an ever-growing
>  dependence on the web, and the continuously increasing importance of
>  large-scale data sharing, integration, and reuse, natural science researchers,
>  geoscience, biology, library science, health care, the humanities, just to
>  name a few, have also taken an increasing interest in the Semantic Web.
>  Large-scale industrial applications are under way or already deployed.
>  
>  Yet, the division between computer science, natural science, and
>  academia/government/industry, has a downside. It limits the formation of a
>  coherent national agenda for exploring emerging trends in Semantic
>  Technologies. What are needed are community consolidation and the
>  building of a U.S.-based community research network.
>  
>  The goal of the 1st U.S. Semantic Technologies Symposium is to bring
>  together the U.S. Semantic Web community and begin forming such a
>  research network. We aim to achieve this by supporting communication
>  across disciplinary, organizational, and geographical boundaries. The
>  Symposium will provide a forum by which participants can share
>  information and ideas, coordinate ongoing or planned research activities,
>  foster synthesis and new collaborations, develop community standards, and
>  advance their science and education through communication and the
>  sharing of ideas.
>  
>  To this end, the Symposium will be an informal gathering with plenty of
>  time for discussion and breakout sessions. We encourage anyone with an
>  interest in the Semantic Web, regardless of field, to attend.
>  
>  The following community leaders will attend and organize sessions at the
>  event:

>  Achille Fukoue, IBM TJ Watson Research Center
