Call For Papers

7th China Semantic Web Symposium & 2nd Web Science Conference (CSWS 2013)

Shanghai, China
August 12th-18th, 2013

With only a few years, the rapid developing Web has led to revolutionary changes in the whole human society. The Semantic Web is the next generation of the Web. It provides a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across application, enterprise, and community boundaries. Semantic Web technologies facilitate building a large-scale Web of machine-readable and machine-understandable knowledge, and thus facilitate data reuse and integration so that the new generation of the Web can provide better applications and services. Nowadays, many scholars and experts are devoting them to the work of applying the Semantic Web theories into specific practice, while in turn improving the Semantic Web standards and technologies according to the demand in practice. Web Science involves full scope of Web-related researches and applications, and it integrates the Web-related interdisciplinary researches into a new field of scientific research. This joint conference aims to promote expansions from the Semantic Web to Web Science, and then to discuss the core technologies of Next Generation Web, such as the Web and swarm intelligence, a new generation of semantic search, semantic and Web security and so on.
