Call for Papers


The Sixth IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (IEEE ICSC 2012)
September 19th- 21st, 2012
Palermo, Italy


The field of Semantic Computing addresses the derivation of semantic information from content and 
the connection of semantics to knowledge, where "content" may be anything including video, audio, 
text, processes, services, hardware, networks, etc.

The Sixth IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC 2012) 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 emerging 
research topics and defining the future of the field. The event is located in Palermo, Italy on the 
Piazza Borsa Hotel. The technical program of ICSC 2012 includes workshops, invited keynotes, paper 
presentations, panel discussions, industrial 'show and tells', demonstrations, and more. Submissions 
of high-quality papers describing mature results or ongoing work are invited.

Authors are invited to submit Regular Papers (8-page technical paper), Short Papers (4-page 
technical paper), Demonstration Papers and Posters (2 page technical paper), and Workshop and 
Special Session Proposals. More information is available on the ICSC 2012 web page. The Conference 
Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. Distinguished quality papers presented 
at the conference will be selected for publication in internationally renowned journals.
