CFP: 1st International Workshop on Advanced Reasoning Technology (ART2012) for e-Science (second call, deadline extended)

The First International Workshop on Advanced Reasoning Technology (ART) 
for e-Science
          November 28, 2012, Paphos, Cyprus 
( <>
Collocated with the 13th International Conference on Web Information 
System Engineering (WISE2012)

Reasoning and inference about semantically annotated data is a key 
technology for any future application aiming at exploring digital 
information. The ART2012 workshop is a reaction on the novel challenges 
of the Semantic Web, which the modern information mining and reasoning 
technology face with. Among those challenges are size, completeness, 
closeness, trustworthiness, consistence, coherence, and dynamic nature 
of the explored data. The workshop will elaborate a strategy and a 
roadmap for the traditional reasoning approaches such as complete and 
deductive reasoning to be advanced by the novel techniques such as 
automated and streaming reasoning in order to get a dominating position 
on the Intelligent Information Management system market, leveraging the 
on-demand infrastructures such as high performance computing and Cloud.

ART2012 will continue the discussion forum started at the previous 
workshops such as NeFoRS'07, NeFoRS'08, SR'09, and NeFoRS'10.

The ART workshop invites submissions that address world-class research 
and development and highlight innovative and emerging systems, methods, 
and technologies in Semantic Web Reasoning. The workshop explores the 
latest and most innovative work in the following topics:

-> scalable reasoning for the Web
-> automated reasoning
-> web scale querying and searching
-> reasoning with inconsistent ontologies
-> temporal and spatial reasoning in the Semantic Web
-> abduction reasoning in the Semantic Web
-> stream reasoning in the Semantic Web
-> efficient storage of structured data that scale to a very large size
-> reasoning with large, expressive or distributed ontologies
-> distribution and parallelization for semantic reasoning
-> cognitively-inspired approaches to deal with large and dynamic 
-> implementation and evaluation of scalable and dynamic reasoners
-> applications of reasoning on large and dynamic datasets
