Second International Symposium of Visualisation of the Semantic Web,

*********** ****************


10 - 11 - 12 July 2002

SOAS, University of London



Call for Papers, Videos and Participation

Aims and Scope

The Semantic Web is currently the most evolving area of the Internet
development. This Second-Generation Web is based not on HTML but on XML
and related technologies, such as RDF, Topic Maps, Ontologies,
Namespaces, and others. The 'Semantic Web' is "a vision: the idea of
data on the Web defined and linked in a way that it can be used by
machines for automation, integration and reuse". The Semantic Web not
only requires adapting existing visualisation techniques and developing
new approaches, but also opens wide opportunities for their practical
implementation. The "Visualisation of the Semantic Web" was started in
2001 as the first International Symposium specially devoted to the
visual aspects of the Second Generation Web. The symposium seeks
original research papers that deal with, but are not limited to, the
following topics:

 Visualisation of Semantic Information and Metadata
 Visual Design of Ontologies and Schemas
 Conceptual Modelling of XML Data Using UML
 Topic Maps Technology
 Rendering and Viewing XML Documents
 Semantic Virtual Environments and MetaVR
 Visual Information Filtering and Knowledge Discovery
 New Visualisation Techniques for the Semantic Web
 Semantic-Oriented Use of Existing Visualisation Methods
 Multimedia Interfaces for XML Documents and Ontologies

15 March 2002 - Submission of papers
