EXTENSION - CfP: Workshop on Human-Semantic Web Interaction (HSWI'13)

Apologies for Multiple Postings

1st Workshop on Human-Semantic Web Interaction (HSWI'13) -

together with the

3rd International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics (WIMS'13)
Jun 12-14, 2013. Madrid, Spain - http://aida.ii.uam.es/wims13/


Deadline EXTENDED to: February 20th


The adoption of Semantic Web technologies implies new challenges for
user interaction beyond those already posed by Web technologies and
interactive systems in general. HSWI workshop aims to explore and
evaluate good practices in interface design, and ultimately feed into
possible recommendations for standardizing and consolidating knowledge
and good practices into a set of guidelines for semantic web
developers, to ensure the usability and reasonably functional user
experiences of the next generation of Semantic Web applications.


Submission deadline: February 20th, 2013
Submission types: full research papers, position papers, case study reports,
reports of experiments, evaluation reports
Submissions: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hswiwims13

Date: to be announced (but one of WIMS'13 conference days: Jun 12-14, 2013)
Place: Madrid, Spain

Topics of interest

HSWI invites papers on, but not strictly limited to, the following topics:

- Requirements for supporting the design and implementation of user
interfaces for semanticapplications
- Natural Language Interfaces
- Interaction styles and requirements, including new/emergent types of
- Models for specifying structure and behavior of semantic interfaces
- Lessons learned from developing, evaluating and using semantic interfaces
- Defining Semantic Interfaces: concepts, requirements
- Literature reviews and methodologies in the scope of Human-Semantic
Web Interaction
- Stakeholders perspectives
- Sensemaking
- Semantic search interfaces
- Use Cases/Case Studies, best practices, evaluations
- New web based interaction technologies (Gesture, Touch, Mind-Web
Interfaces, etc.)UI/UX
- Paradigms for semantic applications on mobile devices, taking into
account on-board sensors (think: SIRI/Google Now on steroids)
- Visualization in semantic interfaces

Submission Types and Publication

For providing a forum for sharing novel ideas, HSWI welcomes a broad
spectrum of contributions, including for example:

- Full research papers
- Position papers
- Case Studies
- Descriptions of Experiments
- Evaluations

The authors in doubt about the relevance of the genre of their
submission are invited to contact HSWI organizers. Submissions will be
evaluated by the members of the international program committee.

Submissions must be original and should not have been published
previously or be under consideration for publication while being
evaluated for this workshop.

The maximum length of papers is at most 12 pages in ACM format.
Please, note that the submission format is MS Word or PDF. The
papers/proposals must be written in English and formatted according to
the ACM guidelines. Author instructions and style files can be downloaded

Contributions will be selected based upon their quality as evaluated
by 2-3 referees. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings
of WIMS’13, part of the International Conference Proceedings Series
published by ACM.

At least one author of accepted papers is required to register at the
full registration rate.

Selected best papers will be considered for inclusion in a special
issue of the Semantic Web Journal (SWJ) on Semantic Interfaces:
