Workshop on Advanced Reasoning Technology for e-Science (ART2012)


Submission Deadline:

Sept 3rd, 2012

Reasoning and inference about semantically annotated data is a key technology for any future application aiming at exploring digital information. The ART2012 workshop is a reaction on the novel challenges of the Semantic Web, which the modern information mining and reasoning technology face with. Among those challenges are size, completeness, closeness, trustworthiness, consistence, coherence, and dynamic nature of the explored data. The workshop will elaborate a strategy and a roadmap for the traditional reasoning approaches such as complete and deductive reasoning to be advanced by the novel techniques such as automated and streaming reasoning in order to get a dominating position on the Intelligent Information Management system market, leveraging the on-demand infrastructures such as high performance computing and Cloud.

ART2012 will continue the discussion forum started at the previous workshops such as NeFoRS'07, NeFoRS'08, SR'09, and NeFoRS'10.

Event Information

The list of the covered topics includes but not limited to:

The workshop will take place during the 13th International Conference on Web Information System Engineering (WISE2012), November 28th-30th, Paphos, Cyprus, as a full-day event.

Please note that for every accepted paper at least one of the authors must attend the workshop and must register for the workshop and the main conference. Submission of a paper is not required for attendance at the workshop. However, in the event that the workshop cannot accommodate all who would like to participate, those who have submitted a paper will be given priority.
