ISWC will be a major international forum at which research on all

the success of the first Semantic Web Working Symposium (SWWS), which 
was held in Stanford in July, 2001. ISWC 2002 will take place on the 
beautiful Mediteranian island of Sardinia, Italy, 9th-12th June, 
2002, immediately preceding the OntoWeb workshop. It will begin by a 
tutorial day on Sunday 9th.

Registration is now open for ISWC and related events, see the web page:


ISWC 2002 has gathered submissions related to all aspects of the 
Semantic Web. Both technical and survey/overview papers were 
solicited, as well as descriptions of working Semantic Web systems, 
position statements and reports on work in progress. The selected 
papers (list available on the web site) will make an exiting 
technical program.

The detailled technical program is available on the site.


Four general interest and technical tutorials are available to attend 
just before ISWC:
- Ontologies: Representation, Engineering, Learning and Applications
- Description Logics for Conceptual Design, Information Access, and
