Refereed Track: Semantic Web
Where is the Web in the Semantic Web?
The central idea of the Semantic Web is to extend the current human-readable web by encoding some of the semantics of web-resources in a machine-processable form. Moving beyond syntax will open the door to more advanced applications and functionality on the Web. Computers will be better able to search, process, integrate and present the content of these web-resources in a meaningful, intelligent manner.
In past Semantic Web tracks of the WWW conference, much good work was reported on the Semantic side of the "Semantic Web". Contributions came from many different fields such as Databases, Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Information Retrieval, Knowledge Representation, and others. This is important work that has laid the foundation for the Semantic Web.
In this year's Semantic Web track of the WWW Conference, we want to re-emphasize the Web aspects of the Semantic Web. We want to better understand how semantics can provide new levels of Web functionality, either for end users, or for designers and developers.
We solicit papers that advance our understanding of how semantics technologies can be exploited on the Web.
We welcome papers that:
Papers risk being deemed out of scope, if they are limited to:
Suggested topics include but are not limited to:
Submissions should describe original, previously unpublished, high quality, innovative work, making significant and preferably not only theoretical, contributions to the overall design of the Semantic Web, Semantic Web systems design and application experience.
