FUZZ-IEEE 2010 Special session on "Uncertainty and the Semantic Web"
A special session dedicated to "Uncertainty and the Semantic Web" will be celebrated in the 19th IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2010), to be held at Barcelona (Spain) on July 18-23, 2010. FUZZ-IEEE 2010 is part of the 2010 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (WCCI 2010).
The Semantic Web, envisioned by T. Berners-Lee et al. in 2001 as a solution to the limitation of the current Web of being only understood by humans, is an extension of the current Web, in which information is given a well-defined meaning. It is widely accepted that uncertainty is inherent in most real world domains. The term uncertainty is intended here as a collection of different forms of imperfect knowledge, such as incompleteness, imprecision, fuzziness, among many others. This raises an obvious need for uncertainty representation and reasoning within Semantic Web applications. This special session will try to bring together the researchers in this area, in order to make public and disseminate the latest research results, share experiences, and provide a forum for a debate.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Uncertainty, logics, reasoning and the Semantic Web (RDF, Logic Programming, Description Logics)
- Uncertainty, ontologies and the Semantic Web
- Uncertainty and Semantic Web Services
- Uncertainty, trust, provenance and the Semantic Web
- Uncertainty, tools and Implementations and the Semantic Web
- Uncertainty, applications and the Semantic Web (information retrieval, ontology matching, social networks, recommender systems, ...)
- Lessons learnt in uncertainty representation in ontologies
The paper submission deadline is February 7, 2010. Please use the special session number "S62 - Uncertainty in the Semantic Web" as the main topic of the paper when submitting it.
Papers submitted to special sessions will be peer-reviewed with the same criteria used for regular papers. The restrictions on the number of pages, charges for extra pages, as well as the registration requirements, are the same as those for regular sessions. All papers are to be submitted electronically through the WCCI 2010 website. The notification of paper acceptance deadline is March 15, 2010.
