======================= CALL FOR PAPERS =======================

            Engineered Applications of Semantic Web

                  INVITED SESSION at the
             11th International Conference on
Knowledge-Based & Intelligent Information & Engineering Systems
                       	  KES 2007

		        Vietri sul Mare, Italy
		        September 12-14, 2007



Since the cornerstone article "The Semantic Web" by Tim Berners-Lee,
James Hendler and Ora Lassila, thanks to the  conjunction of both
academic and industrial efforts, many theoretical results have been
produced, languages and  technologies implemented, frameworks proposed
and scenarios hypothesized in order to go from a "web of links" towards
a  "web of meanings". In spite of an initial skepticism about the
Semantic Web initiative, promising prototypes and tools  have been
developed, both exploiting and boosting Semantic Web technologies.
Relevant applications and scenarios include,  among others:

    * semantic matchmakers
    * semantic web portals
    * semantic social networks
    * semantic web services
    * ontology mappers and mergers
    * ontology browsers
    * e-science
    * e-business
    * e-commerce, e-negotiation, e-marketplace
    * e-learning
    * semantic based multimedia sources categorization and
    * supply chain management
    * semantic-based user interfaces
    * PIM, user profiling
    * mobile computing
    * ubiquitous computing

The aim of this KES'07 session is to gather researchers from various
fields in order to present the most prominent  engineered prototypes and
tools successfully exploiting semantic web technologies and approaches.
They must be able  either to solve issues that would be unfeasible /
much harder without semantics or to help the development and circulation
of Semantic Web related technologies as well as to be reused in
different contexts (not necessarily the web).


Papers are invited from authors with interests on the indicated scope
and related areas of application. The conference  proceedings will be
published by Springer-Verlag in Lecture Notes in AI as part of the
LNCS/LNAI series. When formatting  papers, please refer to the
Springer-Verlag web site, and strictly follow the Instructions to LNCS
Authors. Please note  that the required paper length is eight pages in
Springer format. Papers longer than this will be subject to a penalty
charge. Papers very much longer or shorter than the required length may
be rejected.

To ensure high quality, all papers will be thoroughly reviewed by the
SWEA Programme Committee. Papers may be rejected  without being sent to
the reviewers if they are too long. Papers may be rejected without being
reviewed if it is judged  that they do not lie sufficiently within the
scope of the conference.

All oral and poster papers must be presented by one of the authors who
must register for the conference and pay the fee.  Authors are not
encouraged to submit multiple papers, and authors will be restricted to
one paper per registration. Extended versions of selected papers will be
considered for publication in the KES Journal (International Journal of
Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Engineering Systems) published by IOS
Press, see KES Journal

The proposed schedule of important dates for the session is as follows:

    * March 12, 2007 Submission deadline
    * April 20, 2007 Notification of acceptance
    * April 27, 2007 Camera-ready Due

PROGRAM COMMITTEE (to be completed)

    * Bettina Berendt - University of Berlin (Germany)
    * Paolo Bouquet - Universit degli Studi di Trento (Italy)
    * Dunja Mladenic - J. Stefan Institute (Slovenia)
    * Olfa Nasraoui - University of Louisville (United States)
