Workshop Support



Semantic Web is a major international research effort with the goal to make web content available for intelligent knowledge processing. It draws on standard and novel techniques from various disciplines within Computer Science, including Knowledge Management, Artificial Intelligence, Databases, Internet Technology, Software Agents and Electronic Commerce. The methods and tools developed and integrated for this purpose - often called Semantic Technologies - are generic and have a very large application potential outside the domain of the Semantic Web.

Applications of Semantic Technologies are currently being investigated in various fields, including Ambient Intelligence, Software Engineering, Cognitive Systems, Corporate Intranets, Knowledge Management and Bioinformatics. We believe that the methods and tools provided by Semantic Technologies wil l play a crucial role in these and other application areas for the foreseeable future, in particular for community-based information platforms.


The program of INFORMATIK 2011 will be available at the INFORMATIK 2011 web site.

Topics of Interest

The workshop shall bring together researchers and practitioners who work on applications of Semantic Technologies. It shall further the cross-fertilisation between application areas and aid the technology transfer from foundational research into practice. The workshop shall cover diverse application areas of Semantic Technologies, including, but not limited to, the following.

  • Ambient Intelligence
  • Bioinformatics, eHealth and Life Sciences
  • Business Process Management
  • Cognitive Systems
  • Digital Libraries
  • eCommerce
  • eGovernment
  • eScience
  • Grid and Cloud Computing
  • Information Integration
  • Internet of Things
  • Linked Data
  • Machine Learning
  • Mobile Computing
  • Multimedia Data Management
  • Social Sciences
  • Software Engineering
  • Service-Oriented Computing
  • Service Innovation and Management
  • Text Mining and Information Extraction
  • and any other application area of Semantic Technologies

Along the spotlight topic "Communities" of INFORMATIK 2011, we specifically encourage submissions that cover applications of Semantic Technologies in the areas of social networks, wikis, microblogging sites and community sites. We plan to cluster these topics in a spotlight session.
