Table of Contents

The third IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC2009) continues to foster the growth of a new research community. The conference builds on the success of ICSC2007 and ICSC2008 as an international forum for researchers and practitioners to present research that advances the state of the art and practice of Semantic Computing, as well as identifying the emerging research topics and defining the future of the field. The event is located in Berkeley, California. The technical program of ICSC2009 includes workshops, invited keynotes, paper presentations, panel discussions, and more. Submissions of high-quality papers describing mature results or on-going work are invited.

The field of Semantic Computing addresses the derivation and matching of the semantics of computational content to that of naturally expressed user intentions in order to retrieve, manage, manipulate or even create content, where "content" may be anything including video, audio, text, processes, services, hardware, networks, etc.


Semantic Analysis

  • Natural language processing
  • Image and video analysis
  • Audio and speech analysis
  • Data and web mining
  • Analysis of behaviors of software, services and networks
  • Analysis of social networks

Semantic Integration

  • Metadata and other description languages
  • Database schema integration
  • Ontology integration
  • Interoperability and service integration

Semantic Applications

  • Semantic programming languages and software engineering
  • Semantic system design and synthesis
  • Search engines and question answering
  • Semantic web services
  • Content-based multimedia retrieval and editing
  • Context-aware networks of sensors, devices and applications
  • Human centered communications
  • Semantic trusted computing
  • Semantic GIS systems

Semantic Interfaces

  • Natural language interfaces
  • Multimodal interfaces


Technical Paper Preparation Instructions Manuscripts must be written in English and follow the instructions in the Manuscript Formatting and Templates page Regular Papers should be no longer than eight (8) pages, Demo papers should no longer than two (2) pages. All paper submissions will be carefully reviewed by at least three experts and reviews will be returned to the author(s) with comments to ensure the high quality of the accepted papers. The authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. Please only submit original material where copyright of all parts is owned by the authors declared and which is not currently under review elsewhere. Please see the IEEE policies for further information.

Technical Paper Submission Instructions Only electronic submission will be accepted. Technical paper authors MUST submit their manuscripts through EDAS. Please follow this link (please register if not an EDAS user). Manuscripts may only be submitted in PDF format. A copyright form needs to be submitted upon acceptance of the paper and is not required at this stage.

Note: 1. Every paper accepted for publication in the Proceedings of ICSC 2009 MUST be presented during the conference. 2. Every paper accepted for ICSC 2009 MUST have attached to it at least one registration at the full member/nonmember rate. Thus, for a paper for which all authors are students, one student author will be required to register at the full registration rate.
