Important Dates[edit]

  • Deadline for paper submissions: June 16, 2006
  • Notification of acceptance: July 21, 2006
  • Camera-ready versions: August 4, 2006
  • Workshop: October 5-6, 2006


Semantic Web is a major international research effort with the goal to make web content available for intelligent knowledge processing. It draws on standard and novel techniques from various disciplines within Computer Science, including Knowledge Management, Artificial Intelligence, Databases, Internet Technology, Software Agents, eCommerce, etc. The methods and tools developed and integrated for this purpose – often called Semantic Technologies – are generic and have a very large application potential outside the domain of the Semantic Web.

Such applications are currently being investigated in various disciplines within Computer Science, including Ambient Intelligence, Software Engineering, Cognitive Systems, Corporate Intranets, Knowledge Management, Bioinformat.css, etc. We believe that Semantic Technologies provide methods and tools which will persist in these and other application areas for the foreseeable future.


To ensure a creative atmosphere during the workshop, the participants will be selected based on their submitted papers, posing important issues to be presented and discussed at the workshop. The workshop will consist of short presentations followed by discussions about the goals of the workshop: Applications of Semantic Web Technologies and outlining a plan for future research. In order to obtain an intensive exchange of ideas between the participants, there will be left extensive time for discussion.

A final panel will discuss the research agenda for the coming years, based on the presentations and results from the demos, evaluations and discussions.
