First Workshop on Programming the Semantic Web - PSW'12

co-located with 11th Int. Semantic Web Conf. (ISWC 2012)
11-15 November 2012, Boston, USA


Abstract submission deadline: July 24, 2012
Paper submission deadline: July 31, 2012
Notification of acceptance: August 21, 2012
Camera ready papers: September 10, 2012
Workshop date: November 11 or 12, 2012


The Web of Data is growing at an enormous pace. However, the
development of dedicated software applications, capable to deal
efficiently in information-rich spaces, of which the Semantic Web is
one dimension, is not yet mainstream. Reasons for that include one (or
more) of the following research issues: lack of integrated development
environments (IDEs, such as Visual Studio and Eclipse), poor
programming language support, lack of standard testbeds and/or
benchmarks, inadequate training, and perhaps the need for curricula
revision. Properly addressing these issues requires interdisciplinary
skills, and the collaboration between academia and industry.

The First Workshop on Programming the Semantic Web invites submissions
that explore the gap between today's data management challenges,
particularly the ones related to dealing with large amounts of
semantically rich data, and the lack of adequate tools. We are looking
for contributions that discuss, promote and further advance the
programming facet of the Semantic Web, including the development of
new languages, extension of existing ones, and the inclusion of
semantic enabled capabilities into existing IDEs.

Papers submitted to PSW'12 should explore open research problems,
and must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under
review for another workshop or conference. All papers will be
peer-reviewed by at least three PC members.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Languages, tools, and methodologies for representing and managing
Information-rich data
* Novel programming paradigms aimed at the Semantic Web, linked data,
and information-rich spaces in general
* Impact of specific application areas (e.g. e-science, e-gov,
sensors) on Information-rich application design
* Data Visualization
* Programming Patterns for data handling
* Evaluation of data quality
* Plugins and IDEs for information rich application development
* Ontologies, Schemata, Taxonomies and Types interplay
* Query, integration, and analysis of Semantic Web data
* Cleaning and provenance of Semantic Web data, services, and
* Mashing up data and processes


Papers submitted to PSW 2012 should explore open research problems,
and must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under
review for another workshop or conference. All papers will be
peer-reviewed by at least three PC members. The workshop will accept:

* Full research and experience papers (maximum length: 12 pages)
* Position and demonstration Papers (maximum length: 4 pages)

Submissions must be formatted in the style of the Springer
Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
( Papers
should be submitted electronically, in PDF format, via EasyChair, via

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the international
program committee. Paper acceptance will be based on originality,
significance, technical soundness, and clarity of presentation.

The best papers will have the opportunity to be published in a book on
the Data Driven Programming book, to be published by Springer fall
2013. At least one author of an accepted paper must register and
participate in the workshop. Registration is subject to the terms,
conditions and procedure of the main ISWC conference to be found on
their website.
