Call for Papers: First Industrial Results of Semantic Technologies

Apologies for multiple postings




The 1st International Workshop on First Industrial Results of Semantic
Technology (FIRST 2007) 



at the ISWC+ASWC Conference, November 11-15 2007, Busan, Korea




co-located with the

6th International Semantic Web Conference and

the 2nd Asian Semantic Web Conference 2007.


Submission Deadline: August 23, 2007





The goal of the FIRST workshop is to demonstrate the early adoption of
semantic technologies by enterprises, and to promote further technology
transfer from Semantic Web research to industry. 

It will bring industry and research together to present and discuss the pros
and cons of applying semantic technologies in business processes, not only
to identify how industrial requirements can be met, but also important
issues of technology maturity, accessibility, integration into existing
enterprise IT structures and maintenance throughout the entire ontology and
metadata lifecycle. 


Call for Submissions


We seek concrete reports of technology transfer to industry of Semantic Web
technologies. In particular, we invite industry representatives to report on
first experiences from the application and use of semantic technology within
business processes. 

The workshop provides an opportunity to inform the research community of
industrial requirements and gain feedback from technology developers. 

Workshop submissions will be electronic and should follow the ISWC
guidelines (PDF, formatting according to Springer guidelines, no more than
14 pages). Submissions can be made at 

Papers will be published in an accompanying online proceedings as well as
hardcopy which will be available to all workshop attendees.
