Call for Participation: 3rd International Summer School on Semantic


3rd International Summer School on Semantic Computing
August 8-12, 2011
at the University of California, Berkeley

supported by IEEE and STI International
brought to you by the Institute of Semantic Computing and Semsphere

Semantic Computing is a rapidly-evolving research field that integrates
representation, methods, and techniques from areas as diverse as multimedia,
computational linguistics, semantic web, knowledge engineering and software
engineering, with the goal of creating novel technologies and applications
that connect intuitively formulated user intentions with the content and
meaning of machine-represented data.

In its third edition, the Summer School on Semantic Computing 2011 will
provide an introduction to this interdisciplinary field, aimed at
professionals, PhD candidates / graduate students and senior undergraduates.
A mix of young and well-established researchers and educators will give
tutorials on cutting-edge results in these areas, complemented by keynote
talks by renowned experts and hands-on exercises that showcase the
application of the most important technologies in real-world situations.

The 5-day event will take place just off the campus of the University of
California, Berkeley, August 8th-12th, 2011. The curriculum will include the
following topics:

- Multimedia Analysis, Annotation and Search
- Information Extraction and Semantic Search
- Representation and Reasoning with Semantic Technologies
- Linked Data and Services
- Ontologies: Building, Integrating and Learning

We are thrilled to again announce keynotes from two distinguished Berkeley
emeritus professors: Lotfi Zadeh, widely credited as the creator of Fuzzy
Logic, and Charles Fillmore, noted linguist and creator of Frame Semantics.
Further keynote speakers will be announced early next year.
