(SWCS2013). 26th May 2013 in Montpellier, France in conjunction with
ESWC2013 http://www.swcs2013.org
 *Important dates:*

●      *Submission deadline:* March 4, 2013

●      *Notifications:* April 1, 2013

●      *Camera ready version:* April 15, 2013

*Goal and Motivations*

Semantic Web Collaborative Spaces such as semantic wikis, semantic social
networks, semantic forums, etc. are social semantic software with the
mission to bring together human agents and software agents in order to
foster knowledge-intensive collaboration, content creation and management,
annotated multimedia collection management, social knowledge diffusion and
formalizing, and more generally speaking ontology-oriented content
management life-cycle.

The domain spans from multidisciplinary research to deployed commercial web
applications and contributions from all this spectrum are encouraged. The
aim of the SWCS 2013 workshop is to exchange ideas, to discuss pressing
research questions arising from theoretical studies and practical usage of
semantic web collaborative spaces.


Contributions to this workshop will address one or more of the following

●      Representing and reasoning on semantics in social web platforms:

○      Reconciling formal semantics and social semantics

○      Semantic social network analysis, community detection and community

○      Analyses of semantic wiki contributors and their contributions

○      Combining, transforming, translating formal and informal knowledge

○      Coping with disagreement, inconsistencies

○      Semantics in social/human computing, and vice versa

○      Change management, truth maintenance, versioning, and undoing
semantic changes

○      Connecting knowledge and social interaction rom asynchronous
interactions to real-time/multi-synchronous interactions in SWCS

○      Optimizing, distributing, scaling SWCS

○      Managing and exploiting the emergence of models and their semantics

●      Interacting with and within SWCS:

○      Browsing, navigating, visualizing

○      Editing linked open data, schemas, rules, etc.

○      Ergonomics of SWCS, interaction design and usability studies

○      Object-centered sociality, knowledge-centered sociality

○      Overcoming entrance barriers and giving incentives for contributing

○      Provenance, traceability, permissions, trust, licensing, access
control, privacy,

○      Making formal knowledge accessible, social knowledge evaluation

○      Mobile and multimodal accesses to SWCS

●      Return on experience and applications of semantic web collaborative

○      Swcs platforms in e-science,  e-learning, e-health, e-governement,

○      Enterprise workflows, document flows, business intelligence,
technological watch

○      Corporate knowledge management or personal information management

○      Expert matching, team creation,

●      Integration, interoperability and reuse of web collaborative spaces:

○      Integrations and interoperability with other semantic applications
and mashups

○      Interlinking, distributing, federating SWCS

○      Extending non-semantic social web platforms with semantics

○      Exporting and reusing semantics gained from SWCS

*Submissions and Proceedings*

Best papers presented at the workshop will be included in the supplementary
Springer LNCS proceedings of the conference

We invite the following different kinds of contributions:

●      full research or application papers (15 pages) describing recent
research outcomes, mature work, prototypes, applications, or methodologies;
authors of accepted full papers will be able to present their work in a 15
minute talk at the workshop

●      short position papers (5-10 pages) describing early work and new
ideas that are not yet fully worked out; authors of short papers will be
able to present their work in a 5-10 minute lightning talk at the workshop

●      demo outlines (5 pages) describing the demonstration of a software
prototype in the poster and demo session during the workshop

●      poster descriptions (2 pages) outlining a poster to be presented in
the poster and demo session during the workshop
