We want to thank you for your continuous support and please accept my
personal invitation to be part of this publication. I would be more than

their vision for Semantic-based knowledge systems. I am happy that almost
all the scientific coordinators accepted my invitation. This special issue
is planned for the spring of 2006 (A similar issue is organized for USA
and Australasian projects).  This initiative is in close collaboration
with IJSWIS, our IJ on Semantic Web and Information Systems (EIC: Amit
