CALL FOR PAPERS: Semantic Web Conference, 27-31 May 2012, Heraklion, GREECE


9th Extended Semantic Web Conference

The mission of ESWC is to bring together researchers and practitioners dealing with different 
aspects of semantic technologies. Building on its past success, ESWC is seeking to broaden its 
focus to span other relevant research areas in which semantics in a Web context plays an important 
role. The goal of the Semantic Web is to create a Web of knowledge and services in which the 
semantics of content is made explicit and content is linked to both other content and services. 
This network of knowledge-based functionality will weave together a large network of human 
knowledge, and make this knowledge machine-processable to support intelligent behaviour by machines.
It will support novel applications allowing to combine content from heterogeneous sites in 
unforeseen ways and support enhanced matching between users needs and content.

Creating such an interlinked Web of knowledge which spans unstructured, RDF as well as multimedia 
content and services requires the collaboration of many disciplines, including but not limited to:
Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Database and Information Systems, Information
Retrieval, Machine Learning, Multimedia, Distributed Systems, Social Networks, Web Engineering, 
and Web Science.

In addition to the research and in-use tracks, we have furthermore introduced two special tracks 
this year, putting particular emphasis on inter-disciplinary research topics and areas that show 
the potential of exciting synergies for the future.

*Important Dates*

Abstract submission	December 5th, 2011
Full-paper submission	December 12th, 2011
Notification of acceptance/rejection	February 22nd, 2012
Camera-ready papers	March 9th, 2012

*Additional Information*

ESWC2012 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 ESWC2012 
will be electronic via the conference submissions site. Each paper must be assigned to one of the 
tracks below:

General Chair
- Elena Simperl

Program Chairs
- Philipp Cimiano
- Axel Polleres


Research tracks
- Ontologies (Chairs: Chiara Ghidini, Dimitris Plexousakis)
- Reasoning (Chairs: Giovambattista Ianni, Markus Krtzsch)
- Semantic Data Management (Chairs: Claudio Gutierrez, Andreas Harth)
- Linked Open Data (Chairs: Sren Auer, Juan Sequeda)
- Social Web and Web Science (Chairs: Fabien Gandon, Matthew Rowe)
- Software, Services, Processes and Cloud Computing (Chairs: Matthias Klusch, Carlos Pedrinaci)
- Natural Language Processing and Information Retrieval (Chairs: Paul Buitelaar, Johanna Vlker)
- Mobile and Sensor Web (Chairs: Alasdair J G Gray, Kerry Taylor)
- Machine Learning (Chairs: Claudia d'Amato, Volker Tresp)

Special tracks 2012
- EGovernment: Using Semantics for Promoting Interoperability in the Public Sector (Chairs: 
Asuncin Gmez-Prez, Vassilios Peristeras)
- Digital Libraries and Cultural Heritage (Chairs: Antoine Isaac, Vivien
Petras)

In-use & Industrial track
- In-use & Industrial track (Chairs: Philippe Cudr-Mauroux, Yves Raimond)

Check the website for detailed descriptions of each of these tracks.

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 conference. More information about the 
Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) are available on the Springer LNCS Web site 
(http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs/lncs+authors).

Submission will be through the Easychair system:
