CALL FOR PAPERS - Web2Touch 2017:
Semantic technologies in smart information sharing and web collaboration

Conference Track @ 26th IEEE WETICE 2017
Poznan, Poland, June 21-23, 2017


The increase of Web capabilities leads to a deep qualitative
change in the nature of cooperative activities. Nowadays, many
activities are dynamic and take place in real time. Web
practitioners, and applications, exploit, in rapidly varying
ways, the richness of the Web to support users’ multifaceted
activities. This causes dynamic changes in content, context,
methods, meaning, and relationships to other pieces of knowledge,
which affect the security and reliability of collaborations.
The track theme explores how to share knowledge, views, facts,
and opinions in a highly dynamic and secure Web-based environment.
Coordinated, trusted, and secure sharing of information is an
urgent topic in the Web research agenda. This creates the need
for methods and tools to structure information sharing under
correct conditions, such as preserving privacy and ensuring that
distributed data and processes are consistently maintained in
an evolving environment. Studies on knowledge engineering and
artificial intelligence have proposed various Knowledge Organization
Systems (KOS) (e.g. thesauri, ontologies, taxonomies, etc.), which
play a crucial role in information recovery, disambiguation and
identification on the Web. Reasoning techniques can also be applied,
leading to a better decision or an awareness of events. W2T wants to
explore the state-of-the-art on these topics, accommodating users’
practical experiences as well as trends and research topics, paving
the way for future collaborative approaches to knowledge engineering.

Best papers from Web2Touch were published at International
Journal of Web Portals 2011 and 2013, Concurrency and
Computation 2013, Collaborative Enterprise 2013, and
Future Generation Computer Systems 2016.

Web2Touch concerns improvements that can be produced through
a better organization of knowledge, including alternatives to
represent dynamic changes in shared information. Web2Touch is
also about practical semantic collaboration experiences in a
wide range of well-established and emerging interdisciplinary
applications, including web science, eHealth, smart cities,
smart companies, green IT, entertainment, eLearning and education.
Contributions addressing one or more of the following topics
are expected:
+ Ontologies
- Ontology tools and ontology engineering
- Ontology and knowledge reuse and integration
+ Semantic sharing and collaborative knowledge management
- Data that is heterogeneous with respect to structure,
semantic richness, quality, dynamism, etc, including
big web data, linked open data, crowdsourced data,
social data, knowledge networks data
- Crowdsourcing techniques for semantic collaboration
- Use of semantics in mobile web, wearable computing,
and cross-device content management and delivery
- Semantic annotations
- Semantic-based Decision Support
- Interoperability between semantic web services
- Semantifying collaborative Web sources
- Semantic technologies for Information Extraction
- Collaborative knowledge validation, evolution and alignment
- Collaborative knowledge management enabling context
exploitation and content personalization
+ Experiences in semantic web support for collaborative work and business
- Collaborative semantic web in interdisciplinary applications
such as web science, eHealth, eLearning, education, entertainment,
Internet of Things, smart homes, smart companies and smart cities.

- Submission deadline: 26 February 2017
