The vision of the Semantic Web is to make the contents of the Web unambiguously computer interpretable, enabling automation of a diversity of tasks currently performed by human beings. The goal of providing semantics and automated reasoning capabilities to the Web draws upon research in a broad range of areas including Artificial Intelligence, Databases, Software Engineering, Distributed Computing and Information Systems. Contributions to date have included languages for semantic annotation of Web documents, automated reasoning capabilities for Web languages, ontologies, query and view languages, semantic translation of Web contents, semantic integration middleware, technologies and principles for building multi-agent and Grid systems, semantic interoperation of programs and devices, technologies and principles for describing, searching and composing Web Services, and more.

The 1st Asian Semantic Web Conference (ASWC2006) has been established to foster research and development of the Semantic Web and its related technology in Asia. ASWC will be run by ASWC steering committee in harmony with the sister conferences such as International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) and European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC).

ASWC2006 solicits research paper submissions for the research and industrial tracks:

  • Research Track
  • Industrial Track

ASWC2006 also solicits poster/demo papers after the research paper notification and encourages the submission of proposals for workshops and tutorials. Please watch the ASWC2006 Web site for pertinent details.

Research paper submissions

The research track of ASWC2006 solicits the submission of original, principled research papers dealing with theoretical, methodological, empirical and application-related aspects of the Semantic Web. The industrial track solicits the submission of innovative and practical industrial application papers. Papers must clearly demonstrate relevance to the Semantic Web. Topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Case Study of Semantic Web Application
  • Data Semantics
  • Database Technologies for the Semantic Web
  • Evaluation of Semantic Web Techniques
  • Knowledge Portals
  • Languages, Tools and Methodologies for Semantic
  • Web Data
  • Large Scale Knowledge Management
  • Machine Learning and Natural Language
  • Technologies for the Semantic Web
  • Ontologies (creation, merging, linking and
  • reconciliation)
  • Peer to Peer Systems
  • Searching, Querying and Viewing the Semantic Web
  • Semantics in Peer to Peer and Grids
  • Semantic Brokering
  • Semantic Information Extraction and Semantic
  • Annotation
  • Semantic Integration and Interoperability
  • Semantic Multimedia
  • Semantic Web for e-Business, e-Government and
  • e-Learning
  • Semantic Web Inference Schemes
  • Semantic Web Middleware
  • Semantic Web Mining
  • Semantic Web Services (description, discovery,
  • invocation, composition)
  • Semantic Web Trust, Privacy, Security and Intellectual
  • Property Rights
  • Tools and Methodologies for Web Agents
  • User Interfaces
  • Visualization and Modeling

Submission Details

Research papers for both tracks must be submitted electronically at submission page. Papers must be submitted in either PostScript or PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) format. Papers will not be accepted in any other format.

Research paper submissions must be formatted in the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Papers must be no longer than 15 pages in the format. Over-length papers will be rejected. Accepted papers of both research and industrial tracks are published by Springer as LNCS.

ASWC2006 will not accept papers which, at the time of submission, are under review for or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. In addition to oral presentation, authors of accepted papers may have the option of presenting their papers, plus any recent extensions to their work, at the Poster session of ASWC2006.

Please watch for changes.
