International Workshop on Semantic Interoperability - IWSI 2011

29 January, 2011 - Rome, Italy

In conjunction with the 3rd International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence - ICAART 2011

Salvatore Flavio Pileggi
Universidad Politécnica de Valencia
Scope and Topics
The Semantic Web would be an evolving extension of current Web model (referred as Syntactic Web) that introduces a semantic layer in which semantics, or meaning of information are formally defined.
Semantics should integrate web-centric standard information infrastructures improving several aspects of interaction among heterogeneous systems: semantic interoperability would improve common interoperability models (basic and functional interoperability) introducing the interpretation of means of data. Semantic interoperability is a concretely applicable interaction model under the assumption of adopting rich data models (commonly called Ontology) composed of concepts within a domain and the relationships among those concepts.
Semantic technologies are partially inverting the common view at actor intelligence: intelligence is not implemented (only) by actors but it is implicitly resident in the knowledge model. In other words, schemas contain information and the “code” to interpretate it.
The aim of this Workshop is promoting an open international discussion among researchers from both academia and industry about Semantic Interoperability (and related issues) as well as the selection of a restricted number of high-quality selected papers about interest topics.

At the moment, topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

     › Modeling and Representation of Knowledge
     › Ontology Development
     › Semantic Web
     › Data Models and Languages for Sensor Web
     › Semantic Agents and Services
     › Semantic Interaction
     › Semantic Interoperable Architectures and Middlewares
