MEANINGFUL DATA IN THE SCOPE OF SEMANTIC WEB

Organisation

E. Kapetanios, Dept. of Computer Science, ETH-Zurich, Switzerland
P. Chountas, School of Computer Science, Univ. of Westminster, London, UK

The recently emerged Semantic Web is the evidence of the lack of semantic
contents, which led to poor interpretation and quality of both data and services
as provided by the Web. To this extent, ontologies, terminologies or meta-data
are usually deployed on the Web server site and aim at describing or annotating
data, schema, contexts, etc.

However, in order to use the Web as information exchange and communication
platform among novice users, we need to address two major problems:

- How meaningful is the information we create and query as end-users through the Web,
- How meaningful is what we communicate within user communities, in addition
to the technological aspects of how we communicate.

The problem becomes more acute when advanced application domains, such as scientific
or technical ones, are concerned with the difficulty of understanding and communicating
among not only novice users but also among domain experts. Therefore, we solicit
contributions to semantics driven techniques for

- Capturing and collecting of data
- Querying and query result presentation
- Increasing understanding of information among user communities
- Knowledge Discovery

In particular, the contributions should address topics such as

- Knowledge/Ontology driven methodologies and tools
- Intelligent User Interfaces
- Query languages
- Semantics Driven Communication
- Data Fusion & Mining
- Uncertainty- Conflict
- Molecular Computing & Semantic Web


Papers should be submitted by e-mail to [log in to unmask] according to the paper
submission guidelines of  ISCIS 2003, no later than the 15th of April 2003. The papers
will be reviewed by the ISCIS 2003 Program Committee.

Accepted Papers will be published by Springer-LNCS. For more information about
