NOV 14th 2007

The 5th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2008) is being held in Tenerife, Spain from June 1 to June 5, 2008. The conference is still in its early organizational stage so a list of speakers has not yet been included, nor has a schedule been set for the presentations. ESWC 2008 will feature a tutorial program, system descriptions and demos, a posters track, a Ph.D. symposium and a number of collocated workshops.

They welcome application papers which clearly show the benefits of Semantic Web technologies in practical settings, but hurry, the deadline for full paper submission is December 14, 2007! Topics of interest to the conference include, but are not limited to:

  • Ontology Management (creation, evolution, evaluation, etc.)
  • Ontology Alignment (mapping, matching, merging, mediation and reconciliation)
  • Ontology Learning and Metadata Generation (e.g. HLT and ML approaches)
  • Multimedia and Semantic Web
  • Semantic Annotation of Data
  • Semantic Web Trust, Privacy, Security and Intellectual Property Rights
  • Query Languages and Optimization for the Semantic Web
  • Rule Languages for the Semantic Web
  • Database Technologies for the Semantic Web
  • Data Semantics and Web Semantics
  • Semantic Interoperability
  • Logics for the Semantic Web
  • Semantic Web Mining
  • Reasoning on the Semantic Web
  • Behavior in the Semantic Web
  • Searching, Querying, Visualizing, Navigating and Browsing the Semantic Web
  • Personalization and User Modeling
  • User Interfaces and Semantic Web
  • Semantics in P2P Computing and the Grid
  • Semantic Web Services (description, discovery, invocation, composition, choreography, etc.)
  • Semantics in Middleware
  • Semantic Web-based Knowledge Management (e.g. Semantic Desktop, Knowledge Portals)
  • Semantic Web for e-Business, e-Science, e-Health, e-Culture, e-Government, e-Learning and other application domains
  • Evaluation of Semantic Web Technologies
  • Social networks and processes on the Semantic Web
  • Semantic web technology for collaboration and cooperation

The conference has the general theme that Semantic Web research can benefit from ideas and cross-fertilization with many other areas including Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Databases and Information Systems, Information Retrieval, and more.

About the author

James Simmons

It's my goal to help bring about the Semantic Web. I also like to explore related topics like natural language processing, information retrieval, and web evolution. I'm the primary author of Semantic Focus and I'm currently working on several Semantic Web projects.
