Call for Papers

The Fifth IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (IEEE ICSC 2011)
September 18th-21st, 2011
Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA, USA

The field of Semantic Computing addresses the derivation of semantic information from content and the connection of semantics to knowledge, where "content" may be anything including video, audio, text, processes, services, hardware, networks, etc.

The fifth IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC 2011) continues to foster the growth of a new research community. The conference builds on the success of the past ICSC conferences as an international forum for researchers and practitioners to present research that advances the state of the art and practice of Semantic Computing, as well as identifying emerging research topics and defining the future of the field. The event is located in Palo Alto, CA on the campus of Stanford University. The technical program of ICSC 2011 includes workshops, invited keynotes, paper presentations, panel discussions, industrial 'show and tells', demonstrations, and more. Submissions of high-quality papers describing mature results or ongoing work are invited.

Authors are invited to submit Regular Papers (8-page technical paper), Short Papers (4-page technical paper), Demonstration Papers and Posters (2 page technical paper), and Workshop and Special Session Proposals. More information is available on the ICSC 2011 web page. The Conference Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. Distinguished quality papers presented at the conference will be selected for publication in internationally renowned journals.
