6th IFIP Workshop on Semantic Web & Web Sementics, Oct 2010

6th International IFIP Workshop on Semantic Web & Web Semantics (SWWS 2010) 

With special tracks on Security & Trust, Fuzzy Semantics, Biomedical Informatics, Context-driven Methods for Ontologies and Ontology Learning and Evolution

In conjunction with OnTheMove Federated Conferences (OTM 2010)

Proceedings will be published by Springer LNCS (pending approval)


The IFIP Working Group 2.12 & 12.4 on Semantic Web ( is a timely active international community of scientists, engineers, and practitioners dedicated to advancing the state of the art of research and practice in the emerging field of Semantic Web, and meanwhile providing input and guidance on the direction, scope, and importance of different aspects of artificial intelligence, data modelling, and software theory and practice to Web semantics. It is unique in that it targets to synthesize the concepts from these diverse fields in a comprehensive fashion in the context of the semantics Web.
The Web has now been in existence for quite some time and its pervasive in its influence on all aspects of society and commerce. It has also produced a major shift in our thinking on the nature and scope of information processing. However in its technological nature and its supporting theoretical foundations, it has remained relatively rudimentary, being currently largely suitable for information dissemination. It is rapidly moving away from this, to application deployment and knowledge deployment that require complex interactions and properly structured underlying semantics. This has been a sudden upsurge of research activity in the problems associated with adding semantics to the Web. This work on semantics will involve data, knowledge, and process semantics. The 4th IFIP SWWS 2010 will provide a forum for presenting original, unpublished research results, and innovative ideas related to this voluminous quantity of research. 
In SWWS 2010, as a complementary to the main OTM 2010 conference themes, special focus is aimed at looking four evolving areas of interest for the Semantic Web, namely Security & Trust, Fuzzy Semantics, Biomedical Informatics, Context-driven Methods for Ontologies and Ontology Learning and Evolution. The intention of the SWWS 2010 is to bring together a community of researchers and practitioners who will provide a collection of work that is of utmost importance to the advancement of the web semantics and its future, reviewed by the top experts and minds in the field, in an area of the utmost importance to business, IT and industry.

Who Should Attend

The workshop is intended for researchers, academic, practitioners, IFIP working group WG 2.12/12.4 members and organizations who are actively involved in present and upcoming semantic web technologies. Moreover, the workshop concepts covered is a good reference point for academic and industrial researchers who want to familiarize themselves with emerging trends in semantic web research, technologies and applications.


Topics of special tracks include one or more of the following (but are not limited to) themes; 

- Security & Trust

- Fuzzy Semantics

- Biomedical Informatics

- Context-driven Methods for Ontologies

- Ontology Learning and Evolution
