CALL FOR PAPERS

The Human Semantic Web: Personalization, Management of Personal Knowledge
and Identity, Systems for the Knowledge Society�
Workshop for a Special Issue on an IEEE Transactions Special Issue

The mini-conference �Semantic Web and Web 2.0 Collaboration
Technologies
for the Knowledge Society� will promote a knowledge transfer channel
where
academics, practitioners, and researchers can discuss, analyze, criticize,
synthesize, communicate, elaborate, and simplify the more-than-promising
technology of the semantic Web in the context of information systems. This
mini-conference aims to establish value-adding knowledge transfer and
personal development channels in three distinctive areas: academia,
industry, and government.

Within the Conference there are two pillars:

The Semantic Web vision has evolved in the last years as a blueprint for a
knowledge-based framework aimed at crossing the chasm from the current Web
of unstructured information resources to a Web equipped with metadata and
oriented to delegation of tasks to software agents. Ontologies are the key
piece of this framework in that they provide shared semantics to metadata,
thus enabling a degree of semantic interoperability. The requirements of
large-scale deployment and interoperability of the Semantic Web vision
represent a major challenge to data and knowledge engineering, which
raises a number of issues and requirements regarding how to represent,
create, manage and use both ontologies as shared knowledge
representations, but also large volumes of metadata records used to
annotate Web resources of a diverse kind. The special issue aims at
helping in communicating and disseminating relevant recent research in
knowledge and data engineering as applied to the context of Information
Systems. The scope of the call includes Knowledge Engineering for
organizational applications, Semantic Web approaches to Information
Systems and Ontology-Based Information Systems research, as well as the
diverse underlying Database and Knowledge Representation aspects. Papers
dealing with aspects that touch both aspects are especially sought. This
is intended to initiate a dialog between the organizational and more
technical views of the field.



Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

1. Applications of the Human Semantic Web to the Knowledge Society:
� Potentially large-scale applications (e.g. to Personal Knowledge
Management, Semantic Desktop, Knowledge Portals)
� Data Semantics and Web Semantics in peer-to-peer systems, grids,
multimedia
� Communication, dialogue and argumentation models
� Mediation, negotiation and conflict resolution

2. Representing and Managing Semantic Web Data and Services:
� Languages, Tools, Methodologies, Rules
� Database, IR and AI technologies
� Integration, Analysis and Visualization
� Robust and scalable logics, knowledge management and reasoning
� Machine learning and information extraction
� Semantic Interoperability, Workflows, Web Mining
� Semantic Web Services and Processes (description, discovery,
invocation,
composition, choreography, cleaning, assurance, trust, provenance, etc.)
� Middleware and services for Personalization and User Modelling
� Semantic matching of user needs and web resources

3. Ontologies:
� Ontology Alignment (mapping, matching, merging, mediation and
reconciliation)
� Ontology Learning and Metadata Generation (e.g. HLT and ML
approaches)
� Ontology Management (creation, evolution, evaluation, etc.)
� Ontology Modeling, reuse, extraction, and evolution
� Searching and Ranking ontologies

4. Social Semantic Web:
� Social networks and processes on the Semantic Web
� Semantic web technology for collaboration and cooperation
� Representing and reasoning about Trust, Privacy, Security and
Intellectual Property Rights
� Tools and processes for sense-making, analysis and decision-making
� Supporting strategic communication

5. User Interfaces:
� Interacting with Semantic Web Data
� Semantic Web content creation and annotation
� Mashing up Semantic Web data and processes



CALL FOR PAPERS

Web 2.0 for the Knowledge Society: Social Netowrking, Collaboration,
Management of Knowledge in Social Networks

The key objective of the miniconference is to advancing the knowledge on
design variables and conditions for social networks. Knowledge Management
and Semantic Web are used as the technological lenses for the
specification and analysis of these variables towards a new era of social
interactions and human experiences with computers.

As semantic technologies prove their value with targeted applications,
there are increasing opportunities to consider their application insocial
contexts for learning and human development. Knowledge management has been
accepted as a critical enabler aiming to increase knowledge-related
performance by better use of intellectual assets, in addition to which
many governments are forced to increasingly deal with knowledge services
that form larger parts of the global economy and society. Thus there are
recent examples of applications of semantics for empowering knowledge
management or better supporting knowledge services for social networks.
The special issue aims at communicating and disseminating recent research
and success stories that bring the power of semantics to improve upon
traditional knowledge management approaches, or realize emerging
requirements of knowledge services for social networks.

In the context of knowledge management, social and human issues are of
equal if not higher importance than the technical issues that have tended
to receive the bulk of attention in the past. Consequently, papers that
touch these aspects, or those that extend technical and domain knowledge
to social and human issues are especially sought. This is intended to
initiate a dialog between the social, psychological and technical views of
the field.
