When: October 26-30 2008
Where: Karlsruhe, Germany
7th International Semantic Web Conference

The Web continues to grow and new technologies, modes of interactions, and applications are being developed. Building on this growth, Semantic Web technologies aim at providing a shared semantic information space, changing qualitatively our experiences on the Web. As Semantic Web technologies mature and permeate more and more application areas, new research challenges are coming to the fore and some unsolved ones are becoming more acute. These issues include creating and managing Semantic Web content, making Semantic Web applications robust and scalable, organizing and integrating information from different sources for novel uses, making semantics explicit in order to improve our overall experience with information technologies, and thus enabling us to use the wealth of information that is currently available in digital form for addressing our everyday tasks. To foster the exchange of ideas and collaboration, ISWC brings together researchers in relevant disciplines such as artificial intelligence, databases, social networks, distributed computing, web engineering, information systems, natural language processing, soft computing, and human-computer interaction.

ISWC 2008 calls for papers to its research track. The research track solicits the submission of original, principled research papers dealing with both analytical theoretical and practical aspects of Semantic Web research. Papers of the latter type are encouraged to present repeatability of their experiments, and share with the community their data and test harnesses.
