ICSC 2008

Second IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing
Santa Clara, CA, USA - August 4-7, 2008
ICSC 2008 is over. It was a very successful conference!
Please enjoy the slides and photos.
See you at ICSC 2009 in Berkeley, California!
The second IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC2008) builds on the success of ICSC2007 as an international interdisciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners to present research that advances the state of the art and practice of Semantic Computing, as well as identifying the emerging research topics and defining the future of Semantic Computing. The conference particularly welcomes interdisciplinary research that facilitates the ultimate success of Semantic Computing.

The event is located in Santa Clara, California, the heart of Silicon Valley. The technical program of ICSC2008 includes tutorials, workshops, invited talks, paper presentations, panel discussions, demo sessions, and an industry track. Submissions of high-quality papers describing mature results or on-going work are invited.

The field of Semantic Computing (SC) brings together those disciplines concerned with connecting the (often vaguely-formulated) intentions of humans with computational content. This connection can go both ways: retrieving, using and manipulating existing content according to user's goals ("do what the user means"); and creating, rearranging, and managing content that matches the author's intentions ("do what the author means").

The ultimate success of Semantic Computing requires new, synergized technologies to be developed from natural language processing, signal processing and pattern recognition, data and knowledge engineering, and other fields.

Areas of interest include:

  • Natural Language Processing
  • Multimedia Analysis
  • Audio and Speech Processing
  • Content and Information Management
  • Knowledge Engineering
  • Data Mining
  • Semantic Database Theory and Systems
  • Service-oriented Architectures and Computing
  • Semantic Web and Semantic Web Services
  • Novell User Interfaces for Semantic Computing
