To be held at ISWC 2007, in Busan, Korea, November 11-16, 2007
First Industrial Results of Semantic Technologies (FIRST)
The goal of this workshop is to demonstrate the early adoption of semantic
technologies by enterprises, and to promote further technology transfer
from Semantic Web research to industry. It will bring industry and research
together to present and discuss the pros and cons of applying semantic
technologies in business processes, not only to identify how industrial
requirements can be met, but also important issues of technology maturity,
accessability, integratability into existing enterprise IT structures and
maintenance throughout the entire ontology and metadata lifecycle.
Call for Papers
We seek concrete reports of technology transfer to industry of Semantic Web
technologies. In particular, we invite industry representatives to report on
first experiences from the application and use of semantic technology within business
processes. The workshop provides an opportunity to inform the research community
of industrial requirements and gain feedback from technology developers.
Topics of Interest
We aim for a broad range of topics to be covered in terms of
their industrial value and barriers to uptake, including:
- ontology engineering
- metadata extraction
- Semantic Web Services
