         ##### Research Track: Call for Papers #####

  The 6th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2007)
                         combined with
      the 2nd Asian Semantic Web Conference (ASWC 2007)

                    November 11-15, 2007
 BEXCO (Busan Exhibition and Convention Center), Busan, KOREA

Research Track: Call for Papers

The World-Wide Web continues to grow and new technologies,
modes of interactions, and applications are being developed.
Building on this growth, Semantic Web technologies aim at
providing a shared semantic information space, changing
qualitatively our experiences on the Web. As Semantic Web
technologies mature and permeate more and more application
areas, new research challenges are coming to the fore and
some unsolved ones are becoming more acute. These issues
include creating and managing Semantic Web content, making
Semantic Web applications robust and scalable, organizing
and  integrating information from different sources for novel
uses,  making semantics explicit in order to improve our
overall  experience with information technologies, and thus
enabling us to  use the wealth of information that is currently
available in  digital form for addressing our everyday tasks.
To foster the  exchange of ideas and collaboration, the
International Semantic Web Conference brings together researchers
in relevant disciplines such as artificial intelligence,
databases, social networks, distributed computing, web
engineering, information systems, natural language processing,
and human-computer interaction.

In addition to this call for papers for the research track,
ISWC  2007 will include a Semantic Web In Use track, a poster
and  demonstration track, a doctoral consortium, and a special
competition known as the Semantic Web Challenge. The calls for
those tracks can be found on the ISWC 2007 Web site,

The research track of ISWC 2007 solicits the submission of original,
principled research papers dealing with both analytical theoretical
and practical aspects of Semantic Web research. Topics include, but
are not limited to:

  * Applications of the Semantic Web
    - Applications with clear lessons learned
    - Evaluation of Semantic Web technologies
    - Semantic Web for e-business, e-science, e-government,
      e-learning, and other application domains
    - Semantic Web technologies for multimedia content
    - Personal Information Management
  * Management of Semantic Web Data
    - Languages, tools and methodologies for representing and
       managing Semantic Web data
    - Database technologies for the Semantic Web
    - Search, query, and visualization of the Semantic Web
    - Robust and scalable knowledge management and reasoning on
      the Web
    - Machine learning and human language technologies for the
      Semantic Web
    - Semantic Web content creation, annotation, and extraction
  * Ontologies
    - Ontology creation, extraction, and evolution
    - Ontology mapping, merging, and alignment
    - Evaluation and tanking of ontologies
    - Ontology search
  * Semantic Web Architecture
    - Semantic Web middleware
    - Semantic Web services
    - Agents on the Semantic Web
    - Semantics in peer-to-peer systems and grids
  * Social Semantic Web
    - Social networks and processes on the Semantic Web
    - Semantic web technology for collaboration and cooperation
    - Representing and reasoning about trust, privacy, and security

Paper submissions must be formatted in the style of the Springer
Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
For complete details, see Springer's Author Instructions

Papers need to be submitted electronically through the conference
submission site <http://iswc2007.semanticweb.org>. Papers must be
submitted in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) format. Papers
will not be accepted in any other format. Formatted papers must be
no longer than 14 pages. Papers that exceed this limit will be
rejected without review. ISWC 2007 will not accept research papers
that, at the time of submission, are under review for or have
already been published in or accepted for publication in a journal
or another conference. Authors of accepted papers will be required
to provide semantic annotations for 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. At least one author of each accepted paper
must register for the conference.
