***Early Bird Registration: January 01, 2007***    (07)

==== INTRODUCTION ====    (08)

The proliferation of digital resources poses an unprecedented
challenge to information professionals in generating efficient
information services. Most patrons approach the Internet for the
digital content but have no clue how to retrieve pertinent information
and this has led to a demand for organized information services and
resulted in digital library and institutional repositories.    (09)

Technology and tools have to be deployed for harnessing the content
and for retrieval of information from the mass of unorganized
resources. Semantic Web Technologies is an area that has invoked much
research interest and aims at efficient information representation and
retrieval. The aim of semantic web is to build conceptual relations
for machine interpretation that eventually will lead to efficient
knowledge mapping and organization techniques.  However, research in
Semantic Web is being understood and experimented in different areas
differently and one of the most pertinent applications would be in the
area of Information Retrieval. Search and retrieval mechanism in
Digital Libraries (DL) are moving slowly towards becoming semantic.
Interoperability between digital libraries has to be based on Semantic
Web principles, in order to achieve meaningful user-machine interaction.    (010)

Documentation Research and Training Centre(DRTC), Indian Statistical
Institute(ISI), Bangalore, has a long research interest in knowledge
organization techniques including its seminal contribution in the form
of Prof. S.R. Ranganathanís faceted approach to classification.  In
recent times DRTC has applied the classical theory to practical
modeling in the area of Information Retrieval. The team at DRTC has
experimented with application of Artificial Intelligence (AI)
techniques in IR and has demonstrated systems in automatic
classification and indexing. With this experience and as part of the
Indian Statistical Institute Platinum jubilee celebrations, DRTC/ISI
announces International conference on Semantic Web and Digital Libraries.
The objective is to bring together the best expertise in the areas of
Semantic Web and Digital Libraries from leading initiatives worldwide.    (011)

==== CALL FOR PAPERS ====    (012)

Original papers in English are invited on a theme related to those
mentioned above. An international review panel will review the papers
based on originality of the work, quality and relevance to the main theme
of the conference. Peer reviewed and accepted papers will be published in
the conference proceedings. The papers should follow the submission
instructions that will be furnished along with acceptance note and also
on the conference website.    (013)

The conference aims to explore the topics in themes and sub themes through
tutorials, workshops, demonstrations, Invited talks and presentations.
Eminent researchers and academicians will be invited to deliver theme papers
and invited talks on select topics.    (014)

Papers should not exceed eight (12) pages and have to follow the ICSD-2007
formatting guidelines (http://drtc.isibang.ac.in/icsd/guidelines.html).
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically as MS_WORD (or Open Office
and PDF via e-mail to the following address:    (015)

    icsd@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx with CC to icsd2007@xxxxxxxxx    (016)

At least one of the authors of the accepted article has to be registered
for the conference before the delivery of the camera-ready paper.
Otherwise the article will not be included in the proceedings.    (017)
