Call For Papers

CALL FOR PAPERS: ACM SAC 2012 The Semantic Web and Applications (SWA)

A Technical Track of the 27th Annual ACM SAC:
The Semantic Web and Applications (SWA)

The 27th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

Riva del Garda (Trento), Italy, March 25-29, 2012.


The technical track ??The Semantic Web and Applications (SWA)?? focuses on
the topics related to Semantic Web Technologies and their Applications.
The techniques to realize and/or utilize the Semantic Web are discussed in this track.

The focus of this track is to present research concerning issues such as:
1) learning/constructing ontologies for Semantic Web applications;
2) utilizing ontologies for data management, integration and interoperability
in Semantic web applications;
3) architectures for achieving Semantic Web goals for specific application domains; and
4) improving search techniques (or engines) with Semantic Web technologies.

This track aims to tackle research problems and practical applications
for the Semantic Web. Researchers and practitioners are invited
to submit papers on the theoretical, technical and practical issues of
Semantic Web and its Applications. We are particularly interested
in applying Semantic Web technologies to specific application domains
(e.g., e-learning, e-business, social informatics, medical informatics and bioinformatics).

Topics include, but are not limited to:

* Semantic interoperability
* Ontology-enabled interoperability among e-sources
* Emergent semantics
* Ontology, Taxonomy, and Folksonomy
* Schema mapping/matching and integration
* Learning structures from the Web for Semantic Web-enabled applications
* Ontology generation/learning
* Building/utilizing ontologies and knowledge bases
* Semantics and ontologies in data integration
* Ontology-enabled search (engines)
* Semantic Web-enabled search (engines)
* Semantic web-enabled question answering system
* Ontology-enabled information retrieval
* Semantic Web-enabled information retrieval
* Semantic Web-enabled Information extraction
* Full-text search in XML and/or Semantic Web documents
* Data management and integration for Semantic Web-enabled applications
* Semantic annotation
* Semantic Web personalization
* Semantic Web-enabled user modelling
* Semantic Web services
* Reasoning
* Querying the Semantic Web
* Semantic Web mining
* Question Answering over WWW or the Semantic Web
* Text mining for Semantic Web-enabled application
* Natural language processing for Semantic Web-enabled application
* Semantic Social Network
* Semantic Social Informatics
* Recommendations via Semantic Technologies
* Semantic Technologies
* Semantic Knowledge Discovery
* Visualization of Semantic Technology Applications
* Privacy and Security in Semantic Web Applications
* Applying Semantic Web technologies to e-learning, e-business, social informatics,
medical informatics, bioinformatics, and legal domains


Authors are invited to submit original papers
via submission systems (see below) as a PDF file.
Since the track papers will be published by ACM proceedings,
authors must submit manuscripts using the ACM format.
See ACM SAC 2012's announcement for template files and details.

The standard extension of a paper at SAC is 6 pages in ACM format.
Longer papers (up to 8 pages maximum) will imply an additional charge
and the charge is 80USD per extra page.
For submitting abstracts and papers, the use of the following web site
will be mandatory for this (SWA) track:
The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must NOT appear in the body of the paper,
and self-reference should be in the third person.
This is to facilitate blind review. Only the title should be shown
on the top of the first page without the author's information.
A paper cannot be submitted to more than one track.
All paper submissions MUST be "Original, Unpublished work."

IMPORTANT DUE DATES (Firm deadlines - all deadlines will be strictly enforced.)

Aug. 31, 2011: Paper & Abstract submission
Oct. 12, 2011: Author notification
Nov. 2, 2011: Camera-Ready Paper submission
