Semantic Web is a major international research effort with the goal to make web content available for intelligent knowledge processing. The Semantic Web draws on standard and novel techniques from various disciplines
related to Computer Science, including Artificial Intelligence, Databases, Internet Technology, Software Agents, Ontologies, Knowledge Management and eCommerce. The developed and integrated methods and tools – often called Semantic Technologies – are generic
and have a very large application potential outside the domain of Semantic Web.
Applications of Semantic Technologies are currently being investigated in various fields, including Ambient Intelligence, Software Engineering, Cognitive Systems, Corporate Intranets, Knowledge Management and Bioinformatics.
In recent years the amount of data published on the Semantic Web as so-called Linked Data has exploded. We believe that the methods and tools provided by Semantic Technologies will play a crucial role in these and other application areas for the foreseeable
future, in particular for community-based information platforms.
The program of INFORMATIK 2011 is available at the INFORMATIK 2011 web site.
Topics of Interest
This workshop shall bring together researchers and practitioners who work on applications of Semantic Technologies. It shall further the cross-fertilization between application areas and aid the technology transfer
from foundational research into practice. The workshop shall cover diverse application areas of Semantic Technologies, including, but not limited to, the following.
* Ambient Intelligence
* Bioinformatics, eHealth and Life Sciences
* Business Process Management
* Cognitive Systems
* Digital Libraries
* Grid and Cloud Computing
* Information Integration
* Internet of Things
* Machine Learning
* Mobile Computing
* Multimedia Data Management
* Social Sciences
* Software Engineering
* Service-Oriented Computing
* Service Innovation and Management
* Text Mining and Information Extraction
* and any other application area of Semantic Technologies
Along the spotlight topic "Service Science" of Informatik 2011, we specifically encourage submissions that cover applications of Semantic Technologies in the aforementioned areas of Service-Oriented Computing, Service
Innovation and Management, Business Process Management and other areas relevant for our increasingly services-led economy. We plan to cluster these topics in a spotlight session of the AST 2011 workshop.
