CFP: The 1st International Workshop on First Industrial Results of Semantic Technology (FIRST 2007)

The 1st International Workshop on First Industrial Results of Semantic Technology (FIRST 2007)
at the ISWC+ASWC Conference, November 11-15 2007, Busan, Korea
co-located with the
6th International Semantic Web Conference and
the 2nd Asian Semantic Web Conference 2007.
Submission Deadline: August 23, 2007
The goal of the FIRST workshop is to demonstrate the early adoption of semantic technologies by enterprises, and to promote further technology transfer from Semantic Web research to industry.
It will bring industry and research together to present and discuss the pros and cons of applying semantic technologies in business processes, not only to identify how industrial requirements can be met, but also important issues of technology maturity, accessibility, integration into existing enterprise IT structures and maintenance throughout the entire ontology and metadata lifecycle.
Call for Submissions
We seek concrete reports of technology transfer to industry of Semantic Web technologies. In particular, we invite industry representatives to report on first experiences from the application and use of semantic technology within business processes.
The workshop provides an opportunity to inform the research community of industrial requirements and gain feedback from technology developers.
Workshop submissions will be electronic and should follow the ISWC guidelines (PDF, formatting according to Springer guidelines, no more than 14 pages). Submissions can be made at
Papers will be published in an accompanying online proceedings as well as hardcopy which will be available to all workshop attendees.
Topics of Interest

* Ontology Engineering
* Metadata Extraction
* Reasoning
* Mediation
* Data Integration
* Semantic Web Services
* Search and Personalisation
* Ontology methodologies in business practice;
