I-Semantics 2011: 7th International Conference on Semantic Systems
Graz, Austria, 7 - 9 September 2011


6th AIS SigPrag International Conference Track on Pragmatic Web (ICPW 2011)
& 4th Triplification Challenge


I-SEMANTICS proceedings published by ACM ICPS

Important Dates
* Paper Submission Deadline: May 30, 2011
* Notification of Acceptance: June 27, 2011
* Camera-Ready Paper: July 8, 2011
* I-SEMANTICS 2011: September 7-9, 2011

I-SEMANTICS 2011 (www.i-semantics.at) is the 7th conference in the I-SEMANTICS
series and provides a forum for academic and industrial research & development
that focuses on semantic technologies and the Semantic Web. I-SEMANTICS 2011
will bring together both researchers and practitioners in the areas of Linked
Data, Social Software and the Semantic Web in order to present and develop
innovative ideas that help realising the "Social Semantic Web" and the
"Corporate Semantic Web".

I-SEMANTICS 2011 will be the host of the 6th AIS SigPrag International
Conference on Pragmatic Web as well as the 4th edition of the TRIPLIFICATION
Challenge. Further on I-SEMANTICS will be complemented by I-KNOW
(www.i-know.at), the 11th International Conference on Knowledge Management.
This setup is aiming to reflect the increasing importance and convergence of
knowledge management and semantic systems.

As a conference aiming to bring together science and industry, I-SEMANTICS
encourages scientific research and application oriented contributions in the
field of Semantic Technologies and Linked Data. The topics of interest for
year's conference include but are not limited to:

Linked Data and Web of Data
* Triplification of existing data
* Vocabularies, taxonomies and schemas for use on the Web of Data
* Querying, searching and browsing over the Web of Data
* User interaction and visualisation of Semantic Web Data
* Applications utilizing large open data sets
* Linked Enterprise Data, Linked Government Data
* Languages, tools and methodologies for representing, managing and reasoning
on the Web of Data
* Semantic Sensor Web

Quality of Semantic Data on the Web
* Provenance Information for Linked Data
* Large-Scale Ontology inspection and repair
* Co-reference detection and dataset reconciliation
* Maintenance of Linked Data Models
* Quality criteria for socially generated semantic content
* Trust, privacy and security in Semantic Web applications

Corporate Semantic Web
* Corporate thesauri, corporate business vocabularies / ontologies and
* Semantic Business Information Systems
* Semantic Business Process Management
* Semantic Decision Management
* Semantics, Pragmatics and Semiotics in Organizations
* Economic and entrepreneurial aspects and business models of Semantic

Social Web of Semantic Data
* Semantic blogging, wikis and content management systems
* Semantic Desktop & Semantic mashups
* Semantic/structured tagging
* Social semantic web and mobile services

Semantic Content Engineering
* (Collaborative) Ontology Engineering
* Ontology modularity, alignment and merging
* Ontology Design Patterns
* Ontology Life Cycle Management
* Ontology Learning and knowledge acquisition (including Linguistic and
statistic for structuring and extracting content and entities)
* Automated annotation, extreme tagging and digital curation approaches

Semantic Web Applications and Application Building Blocks
* Scalable inference, retrieval, and persistence of semantic data
* Design processes from requirements to maintenance
* Design patterns, Best practices and Reference Models
* User-interface components, template languages
* Integration of distributed repositories
* Policy Awareness & Policy Aware Web
* Semantic web services
* Applications of semantic web technologies

Studies, Metrics & Benchmarks
* Case studies of and benchmarks in semantic systems usage
* Evaluation perspectives, methods and Semantic Web research methodologies
* Technology assessment, acceptance/media choice theories
* Usability and user interaction with semantic technologies
* Economic effects generated by large scale semantic systems
* Applications with clear lessons learned or evaluations

Pragmatic Web Track
The track on PRAGMATIC WEB is centered around the study of "pragmatics" in the
Semantic Web. That is, it draws attention to how communicative actions with a
pragmatic context are performed via Web media and illuminates how mutual
understanding and commitments to actions can evolve in conversations. For
further information about the Pragmatic Web see http://www.pragmaticweb.info/

Topics of Interest
* Pragmatic Web Science
* Theories, Frameworks, Models and Methods inspired by Pragmatics and
Pragmatism, or less formally, case study reflections on "pragmatic" uses of
Web that supported the negotiation of social/work relationships and common
* Applied pragmatic theory
* Communication, dialogue and argumentation models
* Pragmatic Web media for communicative actions
* Pragmatic collaboration and coordination tools
* Pragmatic context models (e.g. within conversation-based collaborations)
* Pragmatic design principles for Web contents where trust and commitment to
action play a role
* Vocabularies / ontologies for pragmatic primitives (e.g. speech acts,
* Linguistic metaphor: its value for framing the Syntactic, Semantic and
Pragmatic Web
* Pragmatic model of scientific inquiry in Semantic Web research
* Negotiation, mediation, conflict resolution, and coordination combining
existing ontologies and schemata, collaborative ontology sharing and matching
* Integrative frameworks: approaches to integrating insights from component
disciplines (e.g. language-action perspectives, cognition, linguistics,
semiotics, knowledge representation, philosophy, interaction design,
negotiation, media studies)
* Pragmatic reasoning supporting adaptive semantic collaboration and virtual
collaborative teams
* Sense making, analysis and decision-making in a cooperative or
non-cooperative pragmatic model
* Argumentation, dialogue and debate
* Personalized / role-based Pragmatic Web Agents and intelligent conversation
or action based web services
* Pragmatic Web based human-human and human-computer interaction
* Semiotically motivated approaches to information systems
* Semiotic engineering and Semiotics in business computing
* Semiotic theory, concepts, methods and techniques, and their practical

Triplification Challenge

The challenge is open to anyone interested in applying Semantic Web and Linked
Data technologies. This includes students, developers, researchers, and people
from industry. Individual or group submissions are both acceptable. We
submissions that fall into one or more of the following topics:

* Novel data sets that are published as part of the Web of Data, according to
Linked Data principles, and demonstrating potential benefit of use within
* Novel generic mechanisms, approaches, and technologies that convert certain
types and formats of information into triples, interlink them to other data
sets, and expose them as Linked Data;
* Applications showcasing the benefits of Linked Data to end-users such as for
information syndication, specialized search, browsing, or augmentation of

A prize money will be given to the most promising applications, newly
published datasets and methodological approaches built upon Linked Data.
Participants can choose between an Open Track and a special Open Government
Data Track.

Evaluation Criteria
Entries shall consist of a 2-3 page description and will be assessed according
to the extent to which they:

* demonstrate innovation through the expression of existing data structures as
Linked Data;
* reasonably reuse existing vocabularies and alignment ontologies (e.g., the
datasets from the Linking Open Data cloud);
* automatically discover and use new, linked data and do not restrict
themselves to a predefined set of data sources;
* bring real benefits to potential users through the consumption of Linked
sources in real-world applications.

All three criteria will be given equal importance in selecting the winning
entry. In the event of a tie, the entry deemed to bring greatest benefits to
potential users will be awarded the prize.
