             (www2012 - http://www2012.org)
                     SEMANTIC WEB TRACK
                    April 16-20, 2012
                      Lyon, France

Abstracts for papers due: November 1st, 2011
Papers due: November 7th, 2011

www2012 seeks original papers describing research in all areas of the Web.
Papers may be submitted to 14 different tracks, see http://www2012.org/?page_id=1316


One of the biggest challenges in Computer Science is the exploitation of
the Web as a global platform for data and information integration as
well as for intelligent search and querying. Semantic Web technologies
and particularly the Linked Data paradigm have evolved as powerful
enablers for the enrichment of the current document-oriented Web with a
Web of interlinked data and, ultimately, a the Semantic Web. To
facilitate this transition many aspects of distributed data and
information management need to be adapted, advanced and integrated.


In this track, we invite original contributions on topics related to 
the Semantic Web, including (but not limited to):

* Linked Data on the Web as well as in the enterprise
* RDF stores and repositories
* RDF data publishing and access
* Querying and searching Semantic Web Data, including combinations with
 statistics, natural language, soft computing and distributed
* Methods for linking, integrating and federating Data on the Web
* Semantic annotation and metadata
* Community and social mechanisms for the definition of semantics of
 data, and metadata and ontology creation
* Ontologies, Reasoning and representation languages (such as OWL), as
 they pertain to Web needs
* Re-purposing of data, information, and multimedia using semantics
* Applications of Semantic Web formats for enterprises, learning and
* Other novel applications that exploit structured Web data sources
* Blogs, wikis, browsers, crawlers, harvesters, content management
 systems, search engines and other applications that produce and
 consume Semantic Web Data
* Mobile and ubiquitous applications exploiting semantics
* User interfaces for interacting with Semantic Web Data
* Methodologies for the engineering of Semantic Web applications

Submissions should present original results and substantial new work and 
can be up to 10 pages in length. All submissions must be formatted according 
to the ACM SIG Proceedings Template. Papers should properly place the work 
within the field, cite related work, and clearly indicate the innovative 
aspects of the work and its contribution to the field, using for instance 
proper evaluation methods. We strongly encourage evaluations that are 
repeatable. Depending on the type of the paper and the proposed approach 
indications for repeatability may vary. For instance, theoretical papers 
may want to offer links to full proofs of theorems, empirical work may want 
to offer download of training and test data and experimental results, case 
study work may link to case study journals for deeper insights, system 
papers may provide download of the software or a Web client together with 
full assessments in user studies, approaches that describe algorithms may 
want to provide the algorithm in source code and in an easy-to-install manner.

We will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is under 
review for or has already been published or accepted for publication 
in a journal or another conference.

General queries regarding the submission process can be sent to: 

All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers from an 
International Program Committee. Submissions will evaluated first within 
tracks; promising papers identified in each track will then be discussed 
in an in-person meeting of track chairs and deputy chairs, where the final 
selections will be made. Once the paper selection is complete, the technical 
sessions for the conference will be formed based on the topics of the 
accepted papers (regardless of which track handled them). Accepted papers 
will appear in the conference online proceedings published by the ACM Digital 
Library and the conference’s web site. Authors of accepted papers will retain 
proprietary rights to their work, but will be required to sign a copyright 
release form (pdf file) to IW3C2.

The Program Committee will select a small number of outstanding papers for 
fast-track journal publication in the ACM Transactions on the Web 
(ACM TWEB). One paper will be selected for the Best Paper Award.
