A Technical Track of the 24th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (ACM SAC):
The Semantic Web and Applications (SWA)

The 24th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing:
Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, March 8-12, 2009

The technical track "The Semantic Web and Applications (SWA)"
focuses on the topics related to Semantic Web Technologies and their Applications. 
The Semantic Web is a next generation web. 
The current web content is not easy to be processed by machines. 
On the other hand, the web content in the Semantic Web can be processed easily by machines. 
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) building architectures for achieving Semantic Web goals for specific application domains; and 
4) improving search techniques (or engines) with Semantic Web and text mining 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., the e-business, 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 the Semantic Web
    * Text mining for Semantic Web-enabled application
    * Natural language processing for Semantic Web-enabled application
    * Applying Semantic Web techniques to e-business, 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. 
Refer to the following web site for template files and details.

* The standard extension of a paper at SAC is 5 pages in ACM format (approximately 4000 words). 
Longer papers (up to 8 pages maximum) will imply an additional charge.

* 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.
* For submitting abstracts and papers, please use the following URL:
The use of this web site will be mandatory for this (SWA) track. 
This is the ONLY URL that will allow authors to submit a paper to the SWA track. 
Please contact Jeff Allen (jallen AT cs.iupui.edu) for any problems with the system.
* A paper cannot be submitted to more than one track. 

IMPORTANT DUE DATES (Firm deadline):
Aug. 16, 2008:  Paper & Abstract submission 
Oct. 11, 2008:  Author notification
Oct. 25, 2008:  Camera-Ready Paper submission
