Germany, October 2nd, 2009


Organised in cooperation with the Knowledge Representation Fachgruppe of
the German Informatics Society (GI)
<http://fbki.kuenstliche-intelligenz.de/index.php?id=7707> and

==== Deadline for paper submissions: April 26th, 2009 ====

Invited Speaker

Dr. Peter Mika, Yahoo! Research


Semantic Web is a major international research effort with the goal to
make web content available for intelligent knowledge processing. It
draws on standard and novel techniques from various disciplines within
Computer Science, including Knowledge Management, Artificial
Intelligence, Databases, Internet Technology, Software Agents,
eCommerce, etc. The methods and tools developed and integrated for this
purpose – often called Semantic Technologies – are generic and have a
very large application potential outside the domain of the Semantic Web.

Such applications are currently being investigated in various
disciplines within Computer Science, including Ambient Intelligence,
Software Engineering, Cognitive Systems, Corporate Intranets, Knowledge
Management, Bioinformatics, etc. We believe that Semantic Technologies
provide methods and tools which will persist in these and other
application areas for the foreseeable future.

Topics of Interest

This workshop shall bring together researchers and practitioners who
work on applications of Semantic Technologies. It shall further the
cross-fertilization between application areas and aid the technology
transfer from foundational research into practice. The workshop shall
cover diverse application areas of Semantic Technologies, including, but
not limited to, the following.

     * Ambient Intelligence
     * Cognitive Systems
     * Information Integration
     * Multimedia Data Management
     * Software Engineering
     * Service-Oriented Computing
     * Machine Learning
     * eScience
     * Information Extraction
     * Grid Computing
     * Peer-to-Peer Systems
     * eCommerce
     * eGovernment
     * Bioinformatics
     * Digital Libraries
     * Sensor Web
     * Semantic Web for Life Sciences
     * eHealth
     * Social Sciences
     * Mobile Computing
     * and any other application area of Semantic Technologies

Submission and Proceedings

Submissions must not exceed 15 pages (shorter papers are also welcome)
and must comply with the
requirements laid out under

Information on how to submit will be posted on the workshop webpage shortly.
