Call For Papers

AST 2010 - Applications of Semantic Technologies

5th International AST Workshop located at the Informatik 2010 - September 29th, 2010, Leipzig, Germany

Andreas Abecker, FZI - IPE Karlsruhe, Germany
Stephan Bloehdorn, Karlsruhe Service Research Institute at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany
Stephan Grimm, FZI - IPE Karlsruhe, Germany

==== Deadline for paper submissions: April 25th, 2010 ====


Semantic Web is a major international research effort with the goal to make web content available for intelligent knowledge processing. It draws on standard and novel techniques from various disciplines within Computer Science, including Knowledge Management, Artificial Intelligence, Databases, Internet Technology, Software Agents, eCommerce, etc. The methods and tools developed and integrated for this purpose - often called Semantic Technologies - are generic and have a very large application potential outside the domain of the Semantic Web.

Such applications are currently being investigated in various disciplines within Computer Science, including Ambient Intelligence, Software Engineering, Cognitive Systems, Corporate Intranets, Knowledge Management, Bioinformatics, etc. We believe that Semantic Technologies provide methods and tools which will persist in these and other application areas for the foreseeable future.

Topics of Interest

This workshop shall bring together researchers and practitioners who work on applications of Semantic Technologies. It shall further the cross-fertilization between application areas and aid the technology transfer from foundational research into practice. The workshop shall cover diverse application areas of Semantic Technologies, including, but not limited to, the following.

* Ambient Intelligence
* Bioinformatics, eHealth and Life Sciences
* Business Process Management
* Cognitive Systems
* Digital Libraries
* eCommerce
* eGovernment
* eScience
* Grid and Cloud Computing
* Information Integration
* Internet of Things
* Machine Learning
* Mobile Computing
* Multimedia Data Management
* Social Sciences
* Software Engineering
* Service-Oriented Computing
* Service Innovation and Management
* Text Mining and Information Extraction
* and any other application area of Semantic Technologies

Along the spotlight topic "Service Science" of Informatik 2010, we specifically encourage submissions that cover applications of Semantic Technologies in the aforementioned areas of Service-Oriented Computing, Service Innovation and Management, Business Process Management and other areas relevant for our increasingly services-led economy. We plan to cluster these topics in a spotlight session of the AST 2010 workshop.
