CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS: Semantic Computing, 19-21 Sep 2012, Palermo, ITALY
6th IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC2012)
The Sixth IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC2012) continues to foster the growth of a new research community. The conference builds on the success of the past ICSC conferences as an international forum for researchers and practitioners to present research that advances the state of the art and practice of Semantic Computing, as well as identifying emerging research topics and defining the future of the field. The event is located in Palermo, Italy on the Piazza borsa hotel. The technical program of ICSC2012 includes workshops, invited keynotes, paper presentations, panel discussions, industrial "show and tells", demonstrations, and more. Submissions of high-quality papers describing mature results or on-going work are invited. The main goal of the conference is to foster the dialog between experts in each sub-discipline. Therefore we especially encourage submissions of work that is interesting to multiple areas, such as multimodal approaches.
