[CFP]2nd Call for Paper - AAAI'07 Workshop on Semantic e-Science (SeS'07)

[apologize for cross-posting]

AAAI2007's Workshop on Semantic e-Science (SeS07)
23 July, 2007, Vancouver, Canada, co-located with AAAI'07

Call for Papers

Semantic technologies have been gaining momentum in various e-Science areas.
For example, W3C has established a new interest group for semantic web
health care and life science. Hence, there is an urgent need for
semantics-based methodologies, tools, middleware to facilitate scientific
knowledge modeling, logical-based hypothesis checking, semantic data
integration and application composition, integrated knowledge discovery and
data analyzing for different e-Science applications.

Partially influenced by the Artificial Intelligence community, the Semantic
Web researchers have largely focused on formal aspects of semantic
representation languages or general-purpose semantic application
development, with inadequate consideration of requirements from specific
science areas. On the other hand, general science researchers are growing
ever more dependent on the web, but they have no coherent agenda for
exploring the emerging trends on the semantic web technologies. Advances in
e-science infrastructure and e-science applications based on the semantic
technologies and related knowledge-based approaches calls for increased
interaction among these disparate communities.

Following the success of SeS2006 (
http://km.aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de/ws/SeS2006/), SeS2007 aims to provide an
inter-disciplinary forum for researchers from both the Semantic Web
community, and general science communities including the life science
community. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Semantic e-Science Foundations:

   - Knowledge Representation for e-Science
   - Ontology Engineering for e-Science
   - Knowledge Integration for e-Science
   - Knowledge Management for e-Science
   - Semantic Data Integration
   - Semantic Web Services
   - e-Science Process Management
   - Semantic Infrastructure and Architecture for e-Science
   - Semantic Grid Middleware
   - Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery

Semantic Web Applications and Ontologies for:

   - Semantic Web for Health Care and Life Science
   - Semantic Web for Biomedical informatics
   - Semantic Web for System and Integrated Biology
   - Semantic Web for Translational Medicine
   - Semantic Web for Materials Informatics
   - Semantic Web for Geography, Environment and Climate
   - Semantic Web for Chemistry, Physics and Mechanics
   - Semantic Web and Digital Libraries and Scientific Publication

Submission and Proceedings

 We invite academic/industrial researchers and practitioners to submit
original research papers, well-written surveys, or papers describing
deployed systems to the workshop. The papers must not exceed 8 pages in
length including references and should be prepared using the AAAI formatting
guidelines. The papers should be submitted by using the paper submission
system at http://www.easychair.org/SeS2007AAAI2007/ no later than March
27,2007. Each paper will be reviewed by at least 2 members of the PC.
Authors of accepted papers will be required to submit final camera-ready
copy to the organizers on May 15,2007.

The workshop proceeding will be published and distributed by AAAI. All
accepted papers will be included in the AAAI Digital Library, as in the case
of SeS2006, we are organizing journal special issues for extended versions
of selected high-quality work.

 Important Dates

   - Submission deadline: March 27, 2007
   - Notification date: April 25, 2007
   - Author accepted paper submission deadline: May 15, 2007
   - Workshop date: July 23,2007 (to be settled)
