Call for Research Papers
Fourth International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2005)
November 6 –10, 2005
Radisson SAS Hotel
Building on the current architecture for the World Wide Web, Semantic
Web technologies provide a wide range of tools and techniques to support
automated reasoning over distributed representations of Web content.
The Semantic Web will enable a new generation of applications for education,
business, science, and consumer services. It will inspire novel tools
for general collaboration and research. The Semantic Web presents an
unprecedented challenge of scale and heterogeneity to existing work in
expressive representation and query languages, reasoning engines, data
representation and integration, interoperability middleware, and distributed
computing. To foster the exchange of ideas and collaboration, the International
Semantic Web Conference brings together researchers in relevant disciplines
such as artificial intelligence, databases, distributed computing, and
The Fourth International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2005) follows
on the success of previous conferences and workshops in Hiroshima, Japan
(2004), Sanibel Island, USA (2003), Sardinia, Italy (2002), and Stanford,
In addition to this call for papers for the research track, ISWC 2005
will include an industrial track, a poster and demonstration track, and
a special competition known as the Semantic Web Challenge. The calls
for those tracks can be found on the ISWC 2005 Web site, http://iswc2005.semanticweb.org.
The research track of ISWC2005 solicits the submission of original,
principled research papers dealing with both analytical and practical
aspects of semantic Web research. Topics include, but are not limited
Applications of Semantic Web technologies with clear lessons
Semantic Web for e-business, e-science, e-government, and e-learning
applications of the Semantic Web
Languages, tools and methodologies for representing
and managing Semantic Web data
