ESWC2010 Ontology and Reasoning Track: CALL FOR PAPERS

Papers should be submitted through the Easychair system:


7th Extended Semantic Web Conference | ESWC 2010 30 May - 3 June
2010 | Heraklion, Greece http://www.eswc2010.org/



The mission of the Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC2010) is to bring together researchers and practitioners dealing with
different aspects of semantics on the Web. ESWC2010 builds on the success of the former European Semantic Web Conference series, but
seeks to extend its focus by collaborating with other communities and research areas, in which web semantics play an important role
-- within and outside ICT. At the same time, ESWC2010 is a truly international conference, not only "European".

Semantics of web content, enriched with domain theories (ontologies), data about web usage, natural language processing,
etc. will enable a web that provides a qualitatively new level of functionality. It will weave together a large network of human
knowledge and make this knowledge machine-processable. Various automated services, based on reasoning with metadata and
ontologies, will help the users to achieve their goals by accessing and processing information in machine-understandable
form. This network of knowledge systems will ultimately lead to truly intelligent systems, which will be employed for various
complex decision-making tasks. Research about web semantics can benefit from ideas and cross-fertilization with many other areas:
Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Database and Information Systems, Information Retrieval, Multimedia,
Distributed Systems, Social Networks, Web Engineering, and Web Science.

ESWC2010 will present the latest results in research and applications in its field. The research program will be organised
in targeted research tracks. In addition, the conference will feature a tutorial program, system descriptions and demos, a
posters track, a Ph.D. symposium, and a number of collocated workshops. The individual calls for these events can be found on
the conference Web site (http://www.eswc2010.org/).



Abstract Submission December 15, 2009 (compulsory)

Full Paper Submission December 22, 2009 (11:59 pm Hawaii time)

Notification February 24, 2010

Camera Ready March 10, 2010



The Ontologies and Reasoning programme involves the management of and reasoning with ontologies and rules, so as to support their
applications. The central idea of this vision is to use (1) ontologies to encode application data in a machine understandable
form, in order to be able to automatically integrate data from different sources and to be able to support semantic search for
information based on its meaning rather than its syntactic form, and (2) rules to perform conditional decision, event processing
and actions on behalf of the user.

In this track we invite high-quality submissions related (but not limited) to the following topics:

- Rules and ontology management (creation, evolution, reuse, evaluation, etc.)

- Searching, visualizing, navigating and browsing ontologies

- Ontology reasoning and query answering

- Approximate reasoning techniques for the Web

- Ontology usability

- Query languages and optimization for ontologies

- Combining rules and ontologies

- Declarative rule-based reasoning techniques

- Rule languages, standards, and rule systems

- Ontology-based search

- Ontology alignment (mapping, matching, merging, mediation and reconciliation)

- Ontology learning and metadata generation (e.g., HLT and ML approaches)

- Acquisition of rules and ontologies by knowledge extraction

- Corporate Semantic Web

- applications in enterprises and economic valuation

- Language extensions of OWL, ODM, RIF, RuleML, ...

Papers should be submitted through the Easychair system:



ESWC2010 welcomes the submission of original research and application papers dealing with all aspects of representing and
using semantics on the web. We encourage theoretical, methodological, empirical, and applications papers.

The proceedings of this conference will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Paper submission and
reviewing for ESWC2010 will be electronic via the conference submissions site. Papers should not exceed fifteen (15) pages in
length and must be formatted according to the information for LNCS authors.

Papers must be submitted in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) format and will *not* be accepted in any other format. Papers that
exceed 15 pages or do not follow the LNCS guidelines risk being rejected automatically without a review. Authors of accepted
papers will be required to provide semantic annotations for the abstract of their submission -- details of this process 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



An award will be given to the best paper (or papers) submitted to the conference as judged by the Program and Track Chairs in
collaboration with the Program Committee.
