Submission Deadline Feb 10, 2011
Categories    semantic web   fuzzy systems

Call For Papers

A special session dedicated to "Uncertainty and the Semantic Web" will be celebrated in the 20th IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2011), to be held at Taipei (Taiwan) on June 27-30, 2011.


The Semantic Web, envisioned by T. Berners-Lee et al. in 2001 as a solution to the limitation of the current Web of being only understood by humans, is an extension of the current Web, in which information is given a well-defined meaning. It is widely accepted that uncertainty is inherent in most real world domains. The term uncertainty is intended here as a collection of different forms of imperfect knowledge, such as incompleteness, imprecision, fuzziness, among many others. This raises an obvious need for uncertainty representation and reasoning within Semantic Web applications.

After the success of the special session at FUZZ-IEEE 2010, this special session will try to bring together the researchers in this area, in order to make public and disseminate the latest research results, share experiences, and provide a forum for a debate.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Uncertainty, logics, reasoning and the Semantic Web (RDF, Logic Programming, Description Logics)
Uncertainty, ontologies and the Semantic Web
Uncertainty and Semantic Web Services
Uncertainty, trust, provenance and the Semantic Web
Uncertainty, tools and Implementations and the Semantic Web
Uncertainty, applications and the Semantic Web (information retrieval, ontology matching, social networks, recommender systems, ...)
Lessons learnt in uncertainty representation in ontologies
