International Workshop on Semantic Technologies for Information-Integrated 
Collaboration (STIIC 2011)    (03)

As part of The 2011 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and 
Systems (CTS 2011)http://cts2011.cisedu.info/    (04)

                        May 23 – 27, 2011
                The Sheraton University City Hotel
                Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA    (05)

Submission Deadline: January 24, 2011    (06)

Information-integrated collaboration networks have become an important part of 
today’s complex enterprise systems – this becomes obvious if we consider, as a 
prominent example, the high dynamics of network-centric systems, which need to 
react to changes at the level of their information and communication space by 
providing flexible mechanisms to manage a wide variety of information 
resources, heterogeneous, decentralized, and constantly evolving. Semantic 
technologies promise to deliver innovative and effective solutions to this 
problem, facilitating the realization of information integration mechanisms 
that allow collaboration systems to provide the added value they are expected 
to.    (07)

Two fundamental problems are inherent to the design of integrated collaboration 
solutions: (i) semantic inaccessibility, caused by the failure to explicitly 
specify the semantic content of the information contained within the subsystems 
that must share information in order to collaborate effectively; and (ii) 
logical disconnectedness: caused by the failure to explicitly represent 
constraints between the information managed by the different collaborating 
subsystems.    (08)

Mainstream EAI technologies deal with information and information management 
tasks at the syntactic level. Data protocols and standards that are used to 
facilitate seamless information exchange and ‘plug and play’ interoperability 
do not take into account the meaning of the underlying information and the view 
of the individual stakeholders on the information exchanged. What is lacking 
are mechanisms that have the ability to capture, store, and manage the meaning 
of the data and artifacts that need to be shared for collaborative problem 
solving, decision support, planning, and execution.    (09)

Semantic information sharing and integration technologies will provide an 
important collaboration enabling mechanism for the emerging net-centric systems 
and the information grid. Further, it is likely that advances in this area will 
support multiple modes of collaboration with disparate and cross-cutting 
technologies. This workshop, held as part of CTS 2011, will bring together 
researchers and experts interested in bridging the gaps between the different 
technologies, and between technologies and applications.  We invite original 
contributions on the technology practice and user experience for these emerging 
and important areas from researchers in academia, industry, and research 
institutions.    (010)

The workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
•       Semantically-enabled Service Oriented Architectures (SOA)
•       Ontology-based methods for information integration
•       Semantics-based integration and interoperability
•       Semantic workflow orchestration
•       Semantic mediation methods
•       Semantic discovery and matchmaking services
•       Collaborative knowledge engineering and management
•       Using semantic wikis for collaborative applications
•       Agile development of semantic applications
•       Semantically-enabled integration solutions for the Sensor Web, 
healthcare, life sciences, emergency management, energy management, e-Commerce, 
finance, marketing, and advertising    (011)

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and 
other topics related to semantic technologies and information-integrated 
collaboration.  Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously 
submitted elsewhere.  Submission should include a cover page with authors' 
names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses.  
Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords 
from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 450 words.  The 
full manuscript should be at most 8 pages using the two-column IEEE format.  
Additional pages will be charged additional fee.  Please include page numbers 
on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide 
helpful comments. Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via the Workshop 
paper submission site 
athttps://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=stiic2011.    (012)

Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews.  Papers will be selected 
based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation.  
Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register 
and present the paper, if accepted.  Authors of accepted papers must guarantee 
that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop.    (013)

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.  Instructions 
for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the CTS 2011 
Conference Web site.  It is our intent to have the proceedings formally 
published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the 
conference.  The proceedings are projected to be included in the IEEE Digital 
Library and indexed accordingly.    (014)

If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please 
contact the workshop organizers.    (015)
