1st International Workshop on Semantic Link Network (SLN2008)

Linking Great Minds

Establishing Semantic Overlays on Various Computing Resources

Dec.3, 2008, Beijing, China

Various semantic links exist in the objective world and the subjective world. They semantically link various resources and knowledge, help human understand, learn and discover in the worlds. Hyperlink can be regarded as a special semantic links. Could we construct a semantic overlay over various computing resources to support semantics-rich applications? Before asking this question, many issues need to be explored. This workshop on Semantic Link Network is to offer a premier international forum for researchers on this topic.

Topics include but not limited to:
  1. Semantic Link Discovery
  2. Semantic Link Network Reasoning
  3. Semantic Link Network as data model
  4. Probabilistic Semantic Link Network
  5. Semantic Linked Community Discovery
  6. Emerging Semantic Links
  7. Semantic Linked Web 2.0
  8. Decentralized Semantic Link Network Overlays
  9. Applications of Semantic Link Network

Please submit your papers to workshop chair Prof. Hai Zhuge (zhuge(at)ict(dot)ac(dot)cn) before August 30, 2008.

Proceedings of SLN2008 will be published by IEEE Press. So, please use two-column IEEE Format and no more than 10 pages.

The extended version of presented papers will be published in Future Generation Computer Systems (Impact Factor 1.095) as special issue/section.
