Apologies for duplicate submissions !

First IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing
September 17-19, 2007
Irvine, California, USA


Sponsored by
IEEE Computer Society
in cooperation with
University of California at Irvine

The field Semantic Computing applies technologies in natural language
processing, data and knowledge engineering,
software engineering, computer systems and networks, signal processing and
pattern recognition, and any
combination of the above to extract, access, transform and synthesize the
semantics (contents) of multimedia,
texts, services and structured data.

The IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC2007) is an
international forum for researchers
to exchange information regarding advancements in the state of the art and
practice of semantic computing,
as well as to identify the emerging research topics and define the future
of semantic computing. The technical
program of ICSC2007 will consist of invited talks, paper presentations, and
panel discussions.

Submissions of high quality papers describing mature results or on-going
work are invited. Topics for submission
include but are not limited to:

* Natural language understanding and processing
* Understanding and processing of texts and multimedia contents
* Content-based retrieval of texts, images, videos and audios
* Speech recognition
* Semantic web search
* Semantic web services
* Semantic annotation of multimedia contents
* Natural language driven computing
* Multimedia driven computing
* Question answering
* Spoken dialogue and multi-modal systems
* Data, knowledge and software engineering issues
* Integration of semantic systems
* Semantic computing and wireless communications
* Content-based security
* Semantic Computing in the areas of Identity and Privacy Management
* Semantic infrastructure
* Context-aware architecture for networks of sensors, devices, applications
and resources
* Semantic social networks
* Sensor intelligent computing/networks
* Ubiquitous and trustworthy computing
* Semantic communication
* Applications of semantic computing
* Hardware support for semantic computing


The written and spoken language of ICSC2007 is English. Authors should
submit an 8-page technical paper manuscript
in double-column IEEE format including authors' names and affiliations, and
a short abstract electronically, following
the submission guidelines available on the ICSC2007 web page. Only
electronic submission will be accepted. All papers
should be in Adobe portable document format (PDF). The paper should have a
cover page, which includes a 200-word
abstract, a list of keywords, and author's phone number and e-mail address.
The Conference Proceedings will be
published by the IEEE Computer Society Press and all papers are EI indexed.
A number of the papers presented at
the conference will be selected for possible publications in journals.

ICSC2007 will also include a few workshops and special sessions dedicated
to focused interest areas. Submissions
of proposals on workshops and special sessions of emerging areas are
invited. Full length papers from Workshops
and Special Sessions will be presented at ICSC2007, and included in the
Proceedings. Please visit the conference
website for detailed guidelines on submitting workshop and special session

Submissions of proposals on panels are also encouraged. Short panel summary
articles may also be included in the
conference proceedings. Guidelines for submitting panel proposals are
available on the conference website.

There will be a Best Paper Award and a Best Student Paper Award for the
best submitted paper and the best
submitted student paper. The award winners will be announced at the
conference banquet.
