Call For Papers


Methods, Evaluation, Tools and Applications for the Creation and Consumption
of Structured Data for the e-Society (Meta4eS)

- part of the OnTheMove Conferences & Workshops -
Rome, Italy, 10-14 September 2012



Supported by:

- Open Semantic Cloud for Brussels (OSCB, Project
- IFIP TC 12 WG 12.7 ? Social Networking Semantics and Collective Intelligence

With a special keynote session (tba).



The future e-Society - renamed ?OnTheMoveSociety? in the context of OTM 2012 -
is a society created by extensive use of digital technologies at all levels of
interaction between its members. It is a society that evolves based on
knowledge and that empowers individuals by creating virtual communities that
benefit from social inclusion, access to information, enhanced interaction and
freedom of expression, among other. This leads to radical changes in the
dynamics and the interaction between its members, determining new economic
scenarios. The e-Society benefits from the ability to compress both space and
time, which allows sharing large amounts of data in real time anywhere in the

In this context, the role of the World Wide Web and the telecommunication
technologies in the way people and organisations exchange information and
interact in the social cyberspace is crucial. Large amounts of structured data
are being published and shared and a growing number of services and applications
emerge from it. The applications must be designed in such a way to help people
use their knowledge at best and generate new knowledge in return, while keeping
intact their privacy and confidentiality, whether it is in e-Health, e-Government,
e-Democracy or in any other area of the e-Society.

A current popular initiative adopted by a growing number of actors from
transversal domains (e.g. governments, city municipalities, etc.) encourage
publishing structured data (e.g. RDF) on the Web of Data. Managing such data in
order to make sense of it by producing services and applications for end-user
consumption from government and public bodies data is presently a huge challenge
for the research community. This initiative takes into account methods for the
creation and consumption of structured data and tools that make possible their
application by end-users to real-life situations, as well as their evaluation.
The final aim is to lower the barrier between end-users and information and
communication technologies through contributions to the e-Society such as
multilingual information, information visualisation, privacy and trust, rich
multimedia retrieval, etc.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers, professionals and
experts interested to discuss, demonstrate and share best practices, ideas and
results around the creation and particularly the consumption of structured data
for the e-Society.


Topics related to methods, tools and applications for the creation and consumption
of Structured Data (SD) for e-Society and their evaluation are of interest. These
include (but are not limited to) best practices, case studies and tendencies
related to:

* Ontology Evolution from Social Processes
* Exploitation of Natural Language Resources in the Creation and Consumption
of SD
* Automatic Multimedia Annotation
* Semantic-driven Multimedia Retrieval
* Mining Structured Data of Natural Language Resources from Unstructured Data
* Exploiting Multilingual Terminology for SD Consumption
* Database Atomisation
* Spatio-Temporal Aspects of Data applied to e-Society
* Scientific Visualisation of SD
* SD Contribution to e-Society
* Knowledge Creation and Knowledge Sharing in e-Society
* Best Practices in Consuming SD for e-Society
* Lightweight Ontology Creation Methodologies for e-Society
* Ontology in Use for e-Society Applications
* Security, Privacy and Trust in Consuming SD
* Evaluation (of above-mentioned Methodologies, Tools and Applications)
* Usability and Socio-Technical Systems Theory applied to SD in e-Society
* Research Projects and Live Demos regarding Applications of SD for e-Society

Papers, demos and posters presenting ongoing studies around the workshop?s topics
are encouraged for submission.

All accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings by Springer
Verlag LNCS.

Failure to commit to presentation at the workshop automatically excludes a paper
from the Conference Proceedings.
