                             CALL FOR PAPERS
   4th Asian Semantic Web Conference 2009 (ASWC 2009)
              Shanghai, China, 6th-9th December 2009
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 4th Asian Semantic Web Conference (ASWC 2009) 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.
ASWC 2009 will include a Research Track, a Semantic Web in Use Track, a Poster and Demonstration Track. ASWC2009 will announce soon the call for workshops, tutorials and demos.
Paper Submission page:
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 2009 will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Paper submission and reviewing will be electronic via the conference submission site. Papers should not exceed 15 pages in length and must be formatted according to the information for LNCS authors.
