     * Document analysis and Semantic Extraction
     * Semantic Web Mining
     * Semantic Web Inferences Schemes
     * Context and Semantic Awareness
     * Semantic Web Applications
        - Database Technologies for the Semantic Web
        - Intelligent User Interfaces
        - Dynamic Ontology Generation and Adaptation
        - Languages, Tools and Methodologies for 
Semantic Annotations of Web Data
        - Applications on Mobile Devices
        - Enhanced Accessibility and Multimodal Interfaces
        - Reasoning
     * Interoperability and Data Integration

Authors are invited to submit original, 
unpublished research and application papers which 
are not being considered in another forum.
Manuscripts will be limited to 5 two-column pages 
(IEEE Proceeding style) including figures and 
references. Please follow the IEEE
Computer Society Press Proceedings Author 
Guidelines to prepare your papers. Authors of 
accepted papers are requested to sign the
IEEE copyright form. The author guidelines can be 
found at IEEE Conference Publishing Services - Proceedings Author Forms.
Electronic submission of manuscripts (in 
postscript, word or pdf format) is required and 
will be handled via the workshop Web site For any 
questions please contact

At least one author of each accepted paper is 
required to attend the conference and present the paper. Papers accepted for
presentation will be published by IEEE Computer 
Society Press as proceedings of the DEXA 2008 workshops.
Authors are requested to send their paper(s) to 
be received by February 29, 2008.

All submissions will be evaluated for 
originality, significance, clarity, and technical 
soundness. Each paper will be refereed by
at least two to three researchers in the topical area.
