CfP: 3rd Asian Semantic Web Conference 2008 (ASWC 2008)

[apologies for mulitple postings]


3rd Asian Semantic Web Conference 2008 (ASWC 2008)

Pathumthani, Thailand, 8th-11th December 2008

A number of prominent members of the Semantic Web community are now  
beginning to claim that the Semantic Web has arrived. Semantic Web  
search engines now index tens of thousands of ontologies and the term  
'Semantic Web' regularly appears in the mainstream news and culture.  
Additionally, the number of Semantic Web events attracting several  
hundred attendees grows larger every year and industrial interest  
includes the majority of the large software and service companies.
The 3rd Asian Semantic Web Conference (ASWC 2008) will present the  
latest research and development of the Semantic Web and its related  
technologies. It will bring together researchers in relevant  
disciplines such as artificial intelligence, knowledge modeling,  
logic, databases, social networks, Web services, distributed  
computing, Web engineering, information systems, natural language  
processing, multimedia, and human-computer interaction.
ASWC2008 will include a Research Track, a Semantic Web in Use Track, a  
Poster and Demonstration Track.  ASWC2008 also encourages the  
submission of proposals for workshops and tutorials.


The Research Track solicits the submission of original, principled  
research papers dealing with theoretical, methodological, empirical  
and application-related aspects of the Semantic Web. The Semantic Web  
in Use Track solicits the submission of innovative and practical  
application papers which take into account real-world requirements.  
All papers should clearly demonstrate relevance to the Semantic Web -  
fully taking into account aspects related to both semantics and the Web.

The proceedings of ASWC 2008 will be published in Springer's Lecture  
Notes in Computer Science series. Paper submission and reviewing will  
be electronic via the conference submissions site. Papers should not  
exceed 15 pages in length and must be formatted according to the  
information for LNCS authors.

Topics include but are not limited to the following:

Semantic Web Technologies
   Query Languages and Optimization for the Semantic Web
