                    1st international workshop
                            SEMANTIC WEB

                        at  ISWC 2006
                 5th Int. Semantic Web Conference
              November 5 - 9, 2006 Athens, Georgia, USA


Within the past five years, the Semantic Web research community has brought
to maturity a comprehensive set of foundational technology components, and
this both at the conceptual level and in the form of prototypes and
software.  However, in order for these research achievements to materialize
into large scale corporate applications, they must be complemented by
prototypes, methods, and best practices which support enterprises in the
adoption of Semantic Web technology. This includes:

**  Convincing showcases and proofs-of-concept that demonstrate the
    technical feasibility in relevant business scenarios.

**  Methods to assess the costs and business value of semantic
    technology; in particular, such that help estimate the costs
    involved in the development and usage of ontologies, and to quantify
    the operational and strategic benefits of ontology-based systems.

**  Metrics to evaluate and compare existing ontologies, ontology
    engineering methodologies, and tools in terms of technical quality
    and organizational fit. This includes metrics to determine the
    usability of a particular ontology in a specific business scenario.

**  Means to monitor the quality of ontology development and deployment

The availability of best practices, convincing showcases, and quantitative
and qualitative metrics that help manage the various stages of building
ontologies and ontology-based systems will be important catalysts for
disseminating Semantic Web research into enterprise applications.


We invite original research papers and project reports from academia and
industry that address any of the above mentioned aspects of Semantic Web
technology in business applications.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

*   Best practices and use cases of semantic technology in enterprise
    applications, e.g.,

    - Business Process Management (BPM)
    - Business Intelligence (BI)
    - Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
    - Decision Support Systems
    - Ontology-based content integration tasks in business and public
        sector applications (catalog data integration, spend analysis); and
    - Enterprise Application Integration (EAI).

*   Methods to assess the costs and business value of semantic
    technology, in particular

    - Methods to monitor the costs associated with the development and
        usage of ontologies
    - Methods to estimate the total costs of ontology ownership; and
    - Methods that help e quantify the business value, in the sense of
        operational and strategic benefits, of ontology-based systems in

*   Methods for evaluating ontologies and monitoring ontology
    development on a technical level, e.g.

    - Metrics to evaluate and compare existing ontologies, ontology
        engineering methodologies, and tools in terms of technical quality
        and organizational fit
    - Metrics to determine the usability of a particular ontology in a
        specific business scenario
    - Methods to measure the interdependencies among ontologies and
        organizational processes; and
    - Quality frameworks for ontologies, ontology engineering
        methodologies, methods and tools.

Especially welcome will be papers that integrate the various aspects of the
enumerated problems.
