              10th International Workshop on Web Semantics (WebS 2011),

    in conjunction with DEXA 2010, 22nd 
International Conference on Database and
                            Expert Systems Applications

                       29 August - 02 September 2011, Toulouse, France

Dear Colleagues,

you are invited to submit your papers to the 10th 
International Workshop on Web Semantics (part of
the 22nd International Workshop on Database and 
Expert Systems Applications DEXA), to be held on
29 August - 02 September 2011 in Toulouse, France.

The objective of the workshop Web Semantics 
(WebS) is to bring together researchers, developers and
practitioners to discuss research issues and 
experience in developing and deploying Semantic Web
concepts, applications, and solutions being an 
international forum for the presentation of both
theoretical and applicative results.

Papers describing Semantic Web application 
experiences are particularly encouraged.

The special topic "Reliability of ontologies" 
aims on detecting reusable ontologies and measuring the
reliability of possible reusable ontology 
candidates. How can we measure the reliability and the
usability of ontologies? Which adaptations of 
state-of-the-art ontology engineering methodologies are
necessary to support modeling reusable 
ontologies? What measurements for defining and comparing
ontologies can be used and how could ontology repositories use them?
These are some of the open research questions to 
be addressed by papers dedicated to this year's special

The relevant topics include the following (but are not limited to):

     * Knowledge management and sharing
     * Interoperability and data integration through semantic technology
     * Ontology modeling, reuse, extraction, and evolution
     * Ontology mapping, merging, and alignment
     * Ontology learning and metadata generation
     * Ontology evaluation (guidelines)

     * Document analysis and semantic extraction
     * Semantic Web content creation, annotation, and extraction

     * Modeling of Semantic Web
     * Search, integration, and analysis on the Semantic Web
     * Semantic and context awareness
     * Semantic Web supporting business processes
     * Semantic Web for e-sciences
     * Semantic Web for e-business
     * Semantic Web mining
     * Semantic Web data querying and reasoning
     * Semantic Web inference schemes

     * Semantic Web applications
        - Database technologies for the Semantic Web
        - Intelligent user interfaces
        - Dynamic ontology generation and adaptation
        - Languages, tools and methodologies for 
semantic annotations of web data
        - Applications on mobile devices
        - Enhanced accessibility and multimodal interfaces
        - Reasoning

     * Special Topic: Reliability of ontologies
        - Ontology evaluation and reliability measurement
        - Ontological metrics
        - Ontology comparison
        - Ontology reuse methods and methodologies (metrics for reusability)

Authors are invited to submit original, 
unpublished research and application papers that are not
being considered in another forum.
Manuscripts will be limited to 5 two-column pages 
(IEEE Proceeding style) including figures and
references. Please follow the IEEE Computer 
Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare
your papers. Authors of accepted papers are 
requested to sign the IEEE copyright form. The author
guidelines can be found at IEEE Conference 
Publishing Services - Proceedings Author Forms.

Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF, 
postscript, or word format) is required and will be
handled via the workshop Web site 
http://www.faw.jku.at/wwoess/webs/webs.html. For any questions
please contact webs@faw.uni-linz.ac.at.

At least one author of each accepted paper is 
required to attend the conference and present the paper.
Papers accepted for presentation will be 
published by IEEE Computer Society Press as proceedings of
the DEXA 2011 workshops.
Authors are requested to send their paper(s) to be received by March 04, 2011.

All submissions will be evaluated for 
originality, significance, clarity, and technical soundness.
Each paper will be refereed by at least three researchers in the topical area.

Paper submission: March 18, 2011 (Extended Deadline)
Notification of acceptance: May 16, 2011
Webs 2011 Workshop: 29 August - 02 September, 2011
