SCOPE


The future e-Society - renamed “OnTheMoveSociety” in the context of Meta4eS
-
is an e-inclusive society based on the extensive use of digital technologies
at all levels of interaction between its members. It is a society that
evolves
based on knowledge and that empowers individuals by creating virtual
communities that benefit from social inclusion, access to information,
enhanced participation,interaction and freedom of expression, among other.
This leads to radical changes in the dynamics and the interaction between
its members, determining new economic scenarios.

In this context, the role of the World Wide Web and the information and
communication technologies (ICTs) in the way people and organisations
exchange
information and interact in the social cyberspace is crucial. Large amounts
of
structured data are being published and shared and a growing number of
services
and applications emerge from it.

The structured data that are being published – e.g., as RDF on the Web of
Data - is the result of current popular initiatives adopted by a growing
number
of actors from transversal domains (e.g. governments, city municipalities,
etc.).
Managing such data in order to make sense of it by producing services and
applications for end-user consumption from government and public body data
is
presently a huge challenge for the research community, going towards a
Value Web.
>From a business perspective, the (dynamic) composition of services using
structured data stimulates the market.

These initiatives take into account methods for the creation and consumption
of structured data and tools that make possible their application by
end-users
to real-life situations, as well as their evaluation. The final aim is to
lower
the barrier between end-users and ICTs through contributions to the
e-Society
such as multilingual information, information visualisation, privacy and
trust,
rich multimedia retrieval, etc.


The applications must be designed in such a way to help people use their
knowledge
at best and generate new knowledge in return, while keeping intact their
privacy
and confidentiality, whether it is in e-Health, e-Government, e-Democracy
and in
other areas of the e-Society.



The second edition of the Meta4eS workshop aims at bringing together
researchers,
professionals and experts interested to discuss, demonstrate and share best
practices, ideas and results around the creation, management and,
particularly,
consumption of structured data for the e-Society. The focus will be both on
scientific and technological research and on industrial use cases from
various
application domains.



TOPICS OF INTEREST

Topics related to methods, tools and applications for the creation and
consumption
of Structured Data (SD) for e-Society and their evaluation are of interest.
These
include (but are not limited to) best practices, case studies and tendencies
related to:

* Ontology Evolution from Social Processes
* Use of Natural Language Resources in the Creation and Consumption of SD
* Automatic Multimedia Annotation
* Semantic-driven Multimedia Retrieval
* Exploiting Multilingual Terminology for SD Consumption
* Automation of the generation of RDF from legacy databases
* Spatio-temporal Aspects of Data applied to e-Society
* Scientific Visualisation of SD
* SD Contribution to e-Society
* Knowledge Creation and Knowledge Sharing in e-Society
* Best Practices in Consuming SD for e-Society
* Lightweight Ontology Creation Methodologies for e-Society
* Ontology in Use for e-Society Applications (e-Energy, e-Health,
e-Government,
  Linked Open Cultural Heritage, etc.)
* Service composition for e-Society
* Security, Privacy and Trust in Consuming SD
* Evaluation (of above-mentioned Methodologies, Tools and Applications)
* Usability and Socio-Technical Systems Theory applied to SD in e-Society
* Research Projects and Live Demos regarding Applications of SD for
e-Society

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Submitted papers will be refereed by at least three members of the workshop
Program Committee,
based on originality, significance, technical soundness and clarity of
expression.
Submissions must be in English and are of two types: regular papers and
short papers.
Papers should not exceed 5,000 words (excluding references), and should not
exceed 10 pages in
the final camera-ready format. Short papers, of at most 5 pages in the
final camera-ready format,
may relate to a software tool demonstration, describe a small case study,
or explore preliminary
ideas about a relevant topic. Papers should be formatted according to the
Springer Verlag LNCS
style and submitted in PDF format. Author instructions can be found at:

http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.

Paper submission site:

http://submissions.onthemove-conferences.org/2013/meta4es/


Papers, demos and posters presenting ongoing studies relevant to the
workshop’s topics are
encouraged for submission.

All accepted workshop papers (regular papers or short papers) will be
published by Springer
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and indexed by ISI, ACM Digital
Library and DBLP.

Failure to commit to presentation at the workshop automatically excludes a
paper from the
Conference Proceedings.
