ALPSWS2007

2nd International Workshop on Applications of Logic Programming to the Web, Semantic Web and Semantic Web Services

Co-located with the International Conference on Logic Programming ICLP 2007

 September 13, 2007

Porto, Portugal

Announcement: Our invited speaker will be Enrico Pontelli, New Mexico State University
"ASP-Prolog as a framework for Rule-base and Knowledge-base Integration"



Overview


The advent of the Semantic Web promises machine-readable semantics and a machine-processable next generation of the Web. The first step in this direction is the annotation of static data on the Web with machine-processable information about knowledge and its structure, by means of ontologies.  The next step in this direction is the annotation of dynamic  applications and services invocable over the Web in order to facilitate automation of discovery, selection and composition of semantically described services and data sources on the Web by intelligent methods, which is called (Semantic) Web Services.
In this workshop we want to advance the applications of Logic Programming as a paradigm for declarative knowledge representation and reasoning for the Web. The idea is to bring together the body of work related to  applications of LP to the Web, Semantic Web and Web Services.

The previous workshop ALPSWS2006 was held in Seattle, Washington and co-located with the International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP2006), part of the Federated Logic Conference (FLOC2006),

Topics


We solicit contributions focusing on both practical applications and theoretical aspects of logic programming based approaches to Web related topics including (but not limited
to):

Program in Detail



Proceedings

The workshop proceedings are now available, published as CEUR Workshop Proceedings under Vol-287

Submission Information



We invite two forms of submission to this workshop: full papers and short papers.

Full papers shall be up to 16 pages length, short papers 6 pages which could include position papers, system descriptions or preliminary work. The  workshop content will be
made available in separate workshop proceedings. Please use the Springer LNCS format for the papers.
Submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two members of the program committee. Papers must be submitted electronically in either PDF (preferred) or postscript format. 
For paper submission we use the EasyChair conference management system:

http://www.easychair.org/ALPSWS2007/

For accepted submissions, at least one author must register for the workshop in order for the paper to appear in the proceedings and to be scheduled in the workshop program.

We plan to invite authors of the best papers to submit revised and extended versions of their papers for an edited book on Applications of LP in the Web, Semantic Web and Web
Services.


Important Dates





Organization


The workshop will be organized in part around talks presenting research results in the intersection of the Web and Semantic Web, and Logic Programming, selected from the accepted submissions. Another important part of the workshop will be to identify next steps and provide an opportunity for new ideas and initiatives. A part of the workshop will be dedicated towards discussion using the open-space methodology which facilitates and enables effective on site agenda building and execution.
