    CALL FOR PAPERS
    -------------------------------------------------------

    Workshop on Scripting for the Semantic Web
    http://www.semanticscripting.org/SFSW2005/

    co-located with
    2nd European Semantic Web Conference
    May 30, 2005, Heraklion, Greece

    -------------------------------------------------------


    Large parts of the current Web rely on scripting languages such as Python,
    PHP, Perl, JavaScript, ASP, JSP, ActionScript and ColdFusion. These
    languages are the tools of a generation of web programmers who use them to
    quickly create server-side and client-side web applications. Support for
    scripting languages is widely deployed within the current web
    infrastructure: PHP for example is installed on 16 million domains. It
    is therefore likely that scripting languages will also play a crucial role
    in the Semantic Web gaining critical mass.

    Scripting languages are lightweight and easy to learn, but on the other
    hand
    mature enough to be used within complex applications, as the Mozilla, Zope
    and CWM projects show. Many deployed Semantic Web applications, for example
    in the FOAF and RSS communities, are already using these languages and
    it is
    likely that the process of RDF-izing existing database-backed websites,
    wikis, weblogs and CMS will largely rely on scripting languages.

    The workshop aims to bring together for the first time developers of the
    RDF
    base infrastructure for scripting languages with practitioners building
    applications using these languages. The goal of the workshop is to give an
    overview of the current support for Semantic Web technologies within
    scripting languages, to showcase innovative Semantic Web applications
    relying on these languages.


    TOPICS OF INTEREST

    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    Infrastructure
    * Semantic Web frameworks and APIs for scripting languages
    * RDF parsers and serializers for scripting languages
    * RDF repositories and query languages implemented using scripting
    languages
    * Semantic Web Service frameworks for scripting languages
    * Reasoning engines implemented using scripting languages
    * Semantic Web publishing and data syndication frameworks

    Applications
    * Semantic Web applications using scripting languages
    * Approaches to RDF-izing existing applications
    * Wikis, weblogs, data syndication and content management applications
    using RDF
    * RDF/OWL editors and authoring environments
    * Semantic Web Mining and Social Network Analysis
    * Scripting applications using FOAF, RSS, ATOM, DOAP, LOM, Dublin Core
    * Tools and methodologies for the semantic annotation of web data

    Conceptual
    * Rapid development techniques for the Semantic Web
    * Employment of scripting language characteristics for Semantic Web
    development
    * Scalability and benchmarks of Semantic Web scripting applications


    TYPES OF PAPERS

    We seek two kinds of papers: Full papers that and short papers. Full papers
    should not exceed ten pages in length. Short papers are expected to be four
    to six pages. Papers from both categories will be peer-reviewed by three
    independent reviewers. Both full papers and short papers will be
    included in
    the workshop proceedings.

    SUBMISSION DETAILS

    Papers should be submitted electronically via the workshop website in PDF
    format. Papers must be formatted according to Springer LNCS. Please see
    www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for details.


    DEADLINES
    Papers must me submitted electronically by March 30, 2005. Notification of
    the reviewing results will be made on April 28, 2005. Final camera-ready
    versions of accepted papers must be provided electronically by May 5, 2005.


    PROGRAM
    SFSW will be a one day workshop consisting of an introduction about the use
    of scripting languages in the context of the semantic web, presentations of
    submitted papers, and (probably) a panel as well as time for discussion.
