Semantic / Data Web

The Semantic/Data Web programme involves the sharing and processing of data by automated tools as well as by people. The central idea of this vision is to extend the current human-centric web by encoding the semantics of web-resources in a machine-interpretable form in order to be able to automatically integrate data from different sources, to perform actions on behalf of the user, and to search for information based on its meaning rather than its syntactic form.

We solicit contributions to the foundations of the Semantic Web as well as those that demonstrate how structured data technologies can be exploited on the Web. In particular we welcome papers that:

  • show how technologies for transmitting and manipulating structured data add value to the Web.
  • present new structured data technologies, or novel applications of existing approaches that provide new levels of Web functionality.
  • address the role of communities for aggregating structured data on the Web, in particular how community effects on the web can be exploited to generate semantics.
  • demonstrate how emerging web trends such as wikis, folkosonomies and social software can be enriched with explicit semantics.

Suggested topics include but are not limited to:

  • Distributed architectures for structured data on the Web
  • Emergent semantics of structured data repositories
  • Ontologies and representation languages
  • Provenance, trust & security
  • Semantic annotation and metadata
  • Brokering, integration and interoperability between different data sources
  • Annotation of multimedia
  • Search and retrieval based on document understanding
  • Web data mining, ontology learning
  • Applications of Semantic Web formats for learning and science
  • Social networks, web communities
  • Other novel applications that exploit structured data sources on the Web

As well as papers arising directly from Semantic Web research, we also welcome contributions from related disciplines which may contribute to the success of the Semantic Web, including Databases, Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Information Retrieval, Distributed Systems, and others.

Submissions should describe original, previously unpublished, high quality, innovative work, making significant and preferably not only theoretical, contributions to the overall design of the Semantic Web, Semantic Web systems design and application experience.

Paper formatting requirements will be provided on the submissions page.
