[apologies if you see this message more than once]

Hi all,

Due to numerous requests the deadline for submissions to the Scripting for the Semantic Web workshop at ESWC2008 has been extended by one week, to Friday 14th March 2008 (11:59pm Hawaii time). This deadline extension applies to full papers, short papers and Scripting Challenge entries. The Scripting Challenge is sponsored this year by Talis, and carries a prize of an iPod Touch or 250 euros cash.

More details are available at the workshop web site:

Cheers,

Tom.

> Hi all,

> just a quick reminder that the submission deadline for the

> 
> SFSW submission deadline: March 7, 2008
> 
> The workshop seeks high-quality submissions on all aspects of 
> using scripting languages within Semantic Web applications 
> ranging from populating the Semantic Web with data from 
> existing systems to applications that do surprising things 
> with data from the Semantic Web.
> 
> The special focus of this years workshop is the creation of

> applications that integrate socially-created data across 
> communities. Therefore, we especially encourage work on 
> providing Semantic Web access to socially-created content 
> bases, as well as approaches that facilitate data integration 
> across different content bases using Semantic Web technologies.
> 
> I'm sure will have a great workshop and I'm looking forward

> CALL FOR PAPERS
> -------------------------------------------------------
> 
> 4th Workshop on Scripting for the Semantic Web 
> http://www.semanticscripting.org/SFSW2008/
> 
> co-located with
> 5th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC2008) June 1, 2008, 
> Tenerife, Spain
> 
> -------------------------------------------------------
> 
> OBJECTIVES
> ----------
> 
> The workshop aims to bring together developers who are 
> building applications and infrastructure for the Semantic Web 
> using scripting languages such as PHP, JavaScript, Ruby, 
> Python, Perl, JSP and ActionScript. These languages are the 
> tools of a generation of Web programmers who use them to 
> quickly create server and client-side web applications. Many 
> deployed Semantic Web applications from the FOAF, RSS/ATOM, 
> blog and wiki communities, as well as many innovative mashups 
> from the Web 2.0 and Open Data movements are using scripting 
> languages, and it is likely that the process of RDF-izing 
> existing Web applications and database-backed Web sites will 
> continue to rely heavily on scripting languages.
> 
> This year's fourth workshop on Scripting for the Semantic Web 
> aims to continue the tradition of successful ESWC scripting 
> workshops. Last years Scripting for the Semantic Web workshop 
> in Innsbruck, Austria
> (http://www.semanticscripting.org/SFSW2007/) focused on the 
> role of scripting languages in populating the Web with Linked 
> Data, as well as showcasing innovative scripting applications 
> that consume Linked Data from the Web.
> 
> The special focus of this years workshop is the creation of 
> Semantic Web data through social interactions, as well as 
> applications that integrate socially-created data across 
> communities. Therefore, we especially encourage work on 
> providing Semantic Web access to socially-created content 
> bases, as well as approaches that facilitate data integration 
> across different content bases using Semantic Web technologies.
> 
> The workshop will include a scripting challenge which will 
> award an industry sponsored prize to the most innovative 
> scripting application.
> 
> 
> TOPICS OF INTEREST
> ------------------
> 
> Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
> 
> Infrastructure
> - Semantic Web frameworks and APIs for scripting languages
> - RDF repositories and query languages implemented using scripting 
> languages
> - Reasoning engines implemented using scripting languages
> - Semantic Web publishing and data syndication frameworks
> - Approaches to providing Linked Data views on socially-created 
> content bases
> - Approaches to crawling Web data and querying distributed 
> data on the 
> Web
> 
> Applications
> - Semantic Web applications using scripting languages
> - Approaches to using Semantic Web technologies for integrating data 
> across socially-created content bases and user communities
> - Mashups that combine Linked Data from the Web with data 
> from Web 2.0 
> data sources such as Google, Yahoo, flickr, Amazon or eBay
> - Wikis, weblogs, data syndication and content management 
> applications 
> using RDF
> - Scripting applications for visualizing Web data
> - Semantic Web Mining and Social Network Analysis
> - Approaches to RDF-izing existing web-content, such as RDFa, 
> microformats, GRDDL
> - Mashups that demonstrate the novel capabilities of Semantic Web 
> technologies
> 
> Conceptual
> - Rapid development techniques for the Semantic Web
> - Employment of scripting language characteristics for Semantic Web 
> development
> - Scalability and benchmarks of Semantic Web scripting applications
> 
> 
> SCRIPTING CHALLENGE
> -------------------
> 
> The workshop includes a scripting challenge which will award an 
> industry sponsored prize to the most innovative small scripting 
> application or mashup. The application must be implemented using a 
> scripting language and Semantic Web technologies. It should access, 
> visualize or combine data from heterogeneous sources in a novel way. 
> Authors of Scripting Challenge submissions are not required to attend 
> the workshop personally. Please contact Gunnar Grimnes 
> (gunnar.grimnes 
> {at} dfki.de) for further information about the Scripting Challenge.
