Call for Research Papers

1st Asian Semantic Web Conference (ASWC2006)

September 3(Sunday) - 7(Thursday), 2006

Beijing, China


The vision of the Semantic Web is to make the contents of the Web 
unambiguously computer interpretable, enabling automation of a diversity of 
tasks currently performed by human beings. The goal of providing semantics 
and automated reasoning capabilities to the Web draws upon research in a 
broad range of areas including Artificial Intelligence, Databases, Software 
Engineering, Distributed Computing and Information Systems. Contributions 
to date have included languages for semantic annotation of Web documents, 
automated reasoning capabilities for Web languages, ontologies, query and 
view languages, semantic translation of Web contents, semantic integration 
middleware, technologies and principles for building multi-agent and Grid 
systems, semantic interoperation of programs and devices, technologies and 
principles for describing, searching and composing Web Services, and more.

The 1st Asian Semantic Web Conference (ASWC2006) has been established to 
foster research and development of the Semantic Web and its related 
technology in Asia. ASWC will be run by ASWC steering committee in harmony 
with the sister conferences such as International Semantic Web Conference 
(ISWC) and European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC).

ASWC2006 solicits research paper submissions for the research and 
industrial tracks:

Research Track

Industrial Track

ASWC2006 also solicits poster/demo papers after the research paper 
notification and encourages the submission of proposals for workshops and 
tutorials. Please watch the ASWC2006 Web site for pertinent details.

Research paper submissions

The research track of ASWC2006 solicits the submission of original, 
principled research papers dealing with theoretical, methodological, 
empirical and application-related aspects of the Semantic Web. The 
industrial track solicits the submission of innovative and practical 
industrial application papers. Papers must clearly demonstrate relevance to 
the Semantic Web. Topics include but are not limited to the following:

Case Study of Semantic Web Application

Data Semantics

Database Technologies for the Semantic Web

Evaluation of Semantic Web Techniques

Knowledge Portals

Languages, Tools and Methodologies for Semantic

Web Data

Large Scale Knowledge Management

Machine Learning and Natural Language

   Technologies for the Semantic Web

Ontologies (creation, merging, linking and


Peer to Peer Systems

Searching, Querying and Viewing the Semantic Web

Semantics in Peer to Peer and Grids

Semantic Brokering

Semantic Information Extraction and Semantic


Semantic Integration and Interoperability

Semantic Multimedia

Semantic Web for e-Business, e-Government and


Semantic Web Inference Schemes

Semantic Web Middleware

Semantic Web Mining

Semantic Web Services (description, discovery,

  invocation, composition)

Semantic Web Trust, Privacy, Security and Intellectual

  Property Rights

Tools and Methodologies for Web Agents

User Interfaces

Visualization and Modeling

Submission Details

Research papers for both tracks must be submitted electronically via the 
ASWC2006 Web page at http://www.aswc2006.org/. Authors will be asked to 
designate whether they are submitting to the research track or the 
industrial track. Papers must be submitted in either PostScript or PDF 
(Adobe's Portable Document Format) format. Papers will not be accepted in 
any other format.

Research paper submissions must be formatted in the style of the Springer 
Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Papers 
must be no longer than 15 pages in the format. Over-length papers will be 
rejected. Accepted papers of both research and industrial tracks are 
published by Springer as LNCS.

ASWC2006 will not accept papers which, at the time of submission, are under 
review for or has already been published or accepted for publication in a 
journal or another conference. Authors of accepted papers will be required 
to mark up the abstract of their submission for the Semantic Web (help will 
be provided for this task). Details will be provided on the conference Web 
page, at the time of acceptance. In addition to oral presentation, authors 
of accepted papers may have the option of presenting their papers, plus any 
recent extensions to their work, at the Poster session of ASWC2006.

Please watch http://www.aswc2006.org/ for changes.
