                   CALL FOR PAPERS

        Workshop on Scripting for the Semantic Web


                   co-located with
         2nd European Semantic Web Conference
            May 30, 2005, Heraklion, Greece


Large parts of the current Web rely on scripting languages such as 
Python, PHP, Perl, JavaScript, ASP, JSP, ActionScript and ColdFusion. 
These languages are the tools of a generation of web programmers who use 
them to quickly create server-side and client-side web applications. 
Support for scripting languages is widely deployed within the current 
web infrastructure: PHP for example is installed on 16 million web 
servers. It is therefore likely that scripting languages will also play 
a crucial role in the Semantic Web gaining critical mass.

Scripting languages are lightweight and easy to learn, but on the other 
hand mature enough to be used within complex applications, as the 
Mozilla, Zope and CWM projects show. Many deployed Semantic Web 
applications, for example in the FOAF and RSS communities, are already 
using these languages and it is likely that the process of RDF-izing 
existing database-backed websites,
wikis, weblogs and CMS will largely rely on scripting languages.

The workshop aims to bring together for the first time developers of the 
RDF base infrastructure for scripting languages with practitioners 
building applications using these languages. The goal of the workshop is 
to give an overview of the current support for Semantic Web technologies 
within scripting languages, to showcase innovative Semantic Web 
applications relying on these languages.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Semantic Web frameworks and APIs for scripting languages
* RDF parsers and serializers for scripting languages
* RDF repositories and query languages implemented using scripting languages
* Semantic Web Service frameworks for scripting languages
* Reasoning engines implemented using scripting languages
* Semantic Web publishing and data syndication frameworks

* Semantic Web applications using scripting languages
* Approaches to RDF-izing existing applications
* Wikis, weblogs, data syndication and content management applications 
using RDF
* RDF/OWL editors and authoring environments
* Semantic Web Mining and Social Network Analysis
* Scripting applications using FOAF, RSS, ATOM, DOAP, LOM, Dublin Core
* Tools and methodologies for the semantic annotation of web data

* Rapid development techniques for the Semantic Web
* Employment of scripting language characteristics for Semantic Web 
* Scalability and benchmarks of Semantic Web scripting applications


We seek two kinds of papers: Full papers that and short papers. Full 
papers should not exceed ten pages in length. Short papers are expected 
to be four to six pages. Papers from both categories will be 
peer-reviewed by three independent reviewers. Both full papers and short 
papers will be included in the workshop proceedings.


Papers should be submitted electronically via the workshop website in 
PDF format. Papers must be formatted according to Springer LNCS. Please 
see www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for details.


Papers must me submitted electronically by April 15, 2005. Notification 
of the reviewing results will be made on April 28, 2005. Final 
camera-ready versions of accepted papers must be provided electronically 
by May 5, 2005.


SFSW will be a one day workshop consisting of an introduction about the 
use of scripting languages in the context of the semantic web, 
presentations of submitted papers, and (probably) a panel as well as 
time for discussion.
