Research/Academic Track

Call for Research Papers
Fourth International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2005)

November 6 –10, 2005
Radisson SAS Hotel
Galway, Ireland

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 information systems.

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, USA (2001).

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,

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 to:

  • Applications of Semantic Web technologies with clear lessons learned
  • Semantic Web for e-business, e-science, e-government, and e-learning
  • User-centered applications of the Semantic Web
  • Languages, tools and methodologies for representing and managing Semantic Web data
  • Robust and scalable knowledge management and reasoning on the Web
  • Ontology creation, extraction, and evolution
  • Ontology mapping, merging, and alignment
  • Database technologies for the Semantic Web
  • Semantic Web middleware
  • Machine learning and human language technologies for the Semantic Web
  • Semantic Web services
  • Agents on the Web
  • Representing and reasoning about trust, privacy, and security
  • Semantic web technology for collaboration and cooperation
  • Social software
  • Semantic multimedia
  • Semantics in peer-to-peer systems and grids
  • Searching, querying, visualizing and interpreting the Semantic Web
  • Evaluation of semantic Web techniques

Submission Details

Submissions must be received before 11:59 PM PST April 30th, 2005.
