Deadline Approaching: 2009 IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing


Call for Papers

Third IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing


September 14th-16th, 2009, Berkeley, CA, USA

Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society

The field of Semantic Computing addresses the derivation and matching of
the  semantics of  computational content  to that of naturally expressed
user intentions in order to retrieve,  manage, manipulate or even create
content, where "content" may  be anything  including video, audio, text,
processes, services, hardware, networks, etc.

The third IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC2009)
continues  to  foster  the  growth  of  a  new  research  community. The
conference builds  on the  success of the  past  ICSC  conferences as an
international  forum  for   researchers  and  practitioners  to  present
research that advances the state of  the art and  practice  of  Semantic
Computing,  as  well  as  identifying  the emerging  research topics and
defining  the future of  the field.  The event  is located  in Berkeley,
California. The  technical  program   of  ICSC2009  includes   workshops,
invited   keynotes, paper  presentations,  panel  discussions, and  more.
Submissions of high-quality papers describing mature results or on-going
work are invited.

Areas of interest include:

Semantic Analysis
   * Natural language processing
   * Image and video analysis
   * Audio and speech analysis
   * Data and web mining
   * Analysis of behaviors of software, services and networks
   * Analysis of social networks

Semantic Integration
   * Metadata and other description languages
   * Database schema integration
   * Ontology integration
   * Interoperability and service integration

Semantic Applications
   * Semantic programming languages and software engineering
   * Semantic system design and synthesis
   * Search engines and question answering
   * Semantic web services
   * Content-based multimedia retrieval and editing
   * Context-aware networks of sensors, devices and applications
   * Human centered communications
   * Semantic trusted computing
   * Semantic GIS systems

Semantic Interfaces
   * Natural language interfaces
   * Multimodal interfaces

The main goal of  the conference is to foster the dialog between experts
in  each  of  these  disciplines.  Therefore  we   especially  encourage
submissions of  work  that is interesting  to  multiple  areas,  such as
multimodal approaches.
