First IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing 
September 17-19, 2007
Irvine, California, USA

Sponsored by 
IEEE Computer Society
in cooperation with
University of California at Irvine


The field Semantic Computing applies technologies in natural language processing, data 
and knowledge engineering, software engineering, computer systems and networks, 
signal processing and pattern recognition, and any combination of the above to 
extract, access, transform and synthesize the semantics (contents) of multimedia, 
texts, services and structured data.


The IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC2007) is an 
international forum for researchers to exchange information regarding advancements 
in the state of the art and practice of semantic computing, as well as to identify 
the emerging research topics and define the future of semantic computing. The 
technical program of ICSC2007 will consist of invited talks, paper presentations, 
and panel discussions.  


Submissions of high quality papers describing mature results or on-going work 
are invited.  Topics for submission include but are not limited to: 


§          Natural language understanding and processing
§          Understanding and processing of texts and multimedia contents
§          Content-based retrieval of texts, images, videos and audios
§          Speech recognition
§          Semantic web search and services
§          Semantic services engineering

The written and spoken language of ICSC2007 is English. Authors should submit an 
8-page technical paper manuscript in double-column IEEE format including authors' 
names and affiliations, and a short abstract electronically, following the submission 
guidelines available on the ICSC2007 web page. Only electronic submission will be 
accepted. All papers should be in Adobe portable document format (PDF). The paper 
should have a cover page, which includes a 200-word abstract, a list of keywords, 
and author's phone number and e-mail address. The Conference Proceedings will 
be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. A number of the papers 
presented at the conference will be selected for possible publications in journals.


ICSC2007 will also include a few workshops and special sessions dedicated to 
focused interest areas. Submissions of proposals on workshops and special 
sessions of emerging areas are invited. Full length papers from Workshops 
and Special Sessions will be presented at ISCSC2007, and included in the 
Proceedings. Please visit the conference website for detailed guidelines 
on submitting workshop and  special session proposals. 


Submissions of proposals on panels are also encouraged. Short panel summary 
articles may also be included in the conference proceedings. Guidelines for 
submitting panel  proposals are available on the conference website. 


There will be a Best Paper Award and a Best Student Paper Award for the 
best submitted paper and the best submitted student paper. The award 
winners will be announced at the conference banquet.
