Call for tutorials: European Semantic Web Conference 2007 (ESWC 2007)


	4th European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2007)
	3-7 June 2007
	Innsbruck, Austria

DESCRIPTION The vision of the Semantic Web is to enhance todays web via the
exploitation of machine-processable meta data. The explicit representation of
the semantics of data, enriched with domain theories (Ontologies), will enable
a web that provides a qualitatively new level of service. It will weave
together a large network of human knowledge and makes this knowledge
machine-processable. Various automated services will help the users to achieve
their goals by accessing and processing information in machine-understandable
form. This network of knowledge systems will ultimately lead to truly
intelligent systems, which will be employed for various specialized reasoning
subsystems to accomplish complex tasks. Many technologies and methodologies are
being developed within Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing,
Machine Learning, Databases, Multimedia Systems, Distributed Systems, Software
Engineering and Information Systems that can contribute towards the realization
of this vision.

The 4th Annual European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2007) will present the
latest results in research and application of Semantic Web technologies,
including knowledge mark-up languages, Semantic Web services, and ontology
management. More details can be found on the ESWC 2007 homepage.

In addition to the regular research and workshop programme, ESWC 2007 invites
tutorials on relevant topics of interest. A tutorial should present the state
of the art of a semantic web area enabling attendees to fully appreciate the
current issues, main schools of thought and possible application areas.
Proposals for tutorials are welcome for the ESWC 2007 topics of interest (see
bottom); tutorial proposals are requested to follow the submission process
defined below.


ESWC 2007 tutorials may be either for a full day or for a half day. Unless
there is a clear rationale we will give preference to half day tutorials over
full day tutorials.

Tutorials proposed for the ESWC 2007 should cover one topic in appropriate
depth (see ESWC 2007 topics below), and present this in a appropriate manner
which enables attendees to fully comprehend and apply emerging Semantic Web
technologies. Although tutorials may focus entirely on theoretical aspects, we
strongly encourage hands-on sessions where appropriate.

Tutorial proposals should not exceed 5 pages in DIN A4 format and should
contain the following information:

    * abstract (200 words maximum; to be published on the ESWC 2007 website)
    * tutorial description (aims, content, presentation style, technical requirements)
    * relevance of the tutorial to ESWC 2007
    * outline of the tutorial content and schedule
    * information on presenters (name, affiliation, expertise, experiences in teaching and in tutorial presentation)

Tutorial proposals are to be submitted to Joerg Diederich, email: diederich at l3s dot de www:

Submitted proposals that follow the above guidelines will be reviewed by the
ESWC 2007 organizing committee with respect to the relevance of the topic, the
content, and the presentation style.

Important Dates:

    * submission deadline for tutorial proposals: 19 December 2006
    * notification of acceptance: 18 January 2007
    * tutorial hand-outs due: 31 March 2007
    * tutorial presentation date: 3 June 2007

For accepted tutorials, the presenters will need to submit the material for
hand-outs (the slide sets and / or additional information; software
installation and usage guides for practical hands-on sessions) to the
organization committee for preprinting and placement on the ESWC 2007 website.

For each accepted tutorial, we offer one discount of 180 EUR on the
registration fee for ESWC 2007 (50% of the Early-Bird registration fee).

TOPIC LIST The topics of interest for tutorials include, but are not limited to
the following:

    * Ontology Management (creation, evolution, evaluation, etc.)
    * Ontology Alignment (mapping, matching, merging, mediation and reconciliation)
    * Ontology Learning and Metadata Generation (e.g. HLT and ML approaches)
    * Multimedia and Semantic Web
    * Semantic Annotation of Data
    * Semantic Web Trust, Privacy, Security and Intellectual Property Rights
    * Semantic Web Rules and Query Languages
    * Logics for the Semantic Web
    * Reasoning on the Semantic Web
    * Behavior in the Semantic Web
    * Searching, Querying, Visualizing, Navigating and Browsing the Semantic Web
    * Personalization and User Modelling
    * User Interfaces and Semantic Web
    * Semantic Grid and Middleware
    * Semantic Web Services (description, discovery, invocation, composition, choreography, etc.)
    * Semantic Web-based Knowledge Management (e.g. Semantic Desktop, Knowledge Portals)
    * Semantic Web for e-Business, e-Culture, e-Government, e-Health, e-Learning, e-Science
    * Database Technologies for the Semantic Web
    * Data Semantics and Web Semantics
    * Semantic Interoperability
    * Semantic Workflows
    * Semantic Web Mining
