Call for Papers ---------------
Fourth IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing
September 22nd-24th, 2010, Pittsburgh, PA, USA
Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society
The field of Semantic Computing addresses the derivation and matching of the semantics of computational content to that of naturally expressed user intentions in order to retrieve, manage, manipulate or even create content, where "content" may be anything including video, audio, text, processes, services, hardware, networks, etc.
The fourth IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC2010) 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 Pittsburgh, PA. The technical program of ICSC2010 includes workshops, invited keynotes, paper presentations, panel discussions, industrial "show and tells", demos, and more. Submissions of high-quality papers describing mature results or on-going work are invited.
The main goal of the conference is to foster the dialog between experts in each sub-discipline. Therefore we especially encourage submissions of work that is interesting to multiple areas, such as multimodal approaches.
Please refer to the conference website for further information: http://www.ieee-icsc.org/
