Call for papers for 1st Workshop on Mobile Social Semantic Web:

Motivations[edit]

The mobile space involves interaction between millions of mobile phones, sensor devices and Websites. As part of the ubiquitous computing paradigm, it has become one of the most important information spaces in our modern society. Following the fast development of diverse mobile phones and sensor devices, users are now able to create and maintain their profiles in the mobile space, informing other users of their interests and life styles. The combination of social software, semantic technologies, and mobile phones and sensor devices will open up new services and business opportunities.

This phenomenon is further accelerated by the abundant sensor and social data on the Web. Nowadays, huge number of people of different backgrounds participate in online social Websites, such as MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter. The integration of these social networking functions with mobile devices has led to even more interactions on the mobile space. As a result, the problem of interoperability of social data on the Web has also found its way into the mobile space. Semantic Web technologies have already been applied in mobile sensors networks to annotate sensor data. As the mobile space becomes a platform of online social interactions, it is necessary to make new efforts to integrate the Social Semantic Web and Semantic Sensor Web, so as to facilitate social exchange on the mobile space.

Although many efforts from both Social Semantic Web and Semantic Sensor Web allow us to produce and consume meaningful data, mobile environments and applications need different or enhanced approaches to handing both social data and sensory data. The goal of this workshop is to provide a platform for discussing research top.css underlying the concepts of Social Semantic Web on mobile devices and sensors. Participants can look forward to:

  • discuss approaches to facilitate social semantic data on mobile devices;
  • present innovative social mobile applications;
  • perform critical research and present practical issues associated with Social Semantic Web on mobile environments.

By bringing together representatives of academia and industry, the workshop also provides a venue for identifying new research problems and disseminating results of research and practices.

Top.css of Interest[edit]

The aim of this workshop is to cover all aspects that relate to research and practical issues of Social Semantic Web and Mobile Web. Top.css of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Social content sharing and distribution services on mobile devices
  • Ontologies for Mobile Web: developing and using ontologies on mobile environments
  • Enriching social data with semantic on application stores (Apple, Nokia, RIM, etc.)
  • Producing use cases of Social Semantic Web on application stores
  • Social and semantic microblogging
  • Social Semantic Web on mobile devices: encouraging Social Web and Semantic Web technologies
  • Mobile Social Search
  • Social Tagging and Folksonomies on mobile devices
  • Linked Data on Mobile Web
  • Mobile user interfaces
  • Social networks and Mobile Web
  • Mobile Semantic Mash-ups

Submission Details[edit]

The following types of contributions are welcomed:

  • Full technical papers, up to 12 pages.
  • Short technical papers and position papers, up to 6 pages.
  • Posters and Demos, 2-3 pages with a description of the application, ideally accompanied with a link to an online demo.

Paper submissions will have to be formatted in the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) [[1]]. Submissions will be made using EasyChair Conference System [[2]].

Important dates[edit]

  • Submission deadline: October 22 2009
  • Notification to authors: November 2 2009
  • Camera ready: November 9 2009
