Second IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing
Santa Clara, CA, USA - August 4-7, 2008
ICSC 2008 is over. It was a very successful conference!
Please enjoy the slides and photos.
See you at ICSC 2009 in Berkeley, California!
The second IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing
(ICSC2008) builds on the success of ICSC2007 as an international
interdisciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners to
present research that advances the state of the art and practice
of Semantic Computing, as well as identifying the emerging research
topics and defining the future of Semantic Computing. The
conference particularly welcomes interdisciplinary research that
facilitates the ultimate success of Semantic Computing.
The event is located in Santa Clara, California, the heart of
Silicon Valley. The technical program of ICSC2008 includes tutorials,
workshops, invited talks, paper presentations, panel discussions,
demo sessions, and an industry track. Submissions of
high-quality papers describing mature results or on-going work
The field of Semantic Computing (SC) brings together those disciplines
concerned with connecting the (often vaguely-formulated) intentions
of humans with computational content. This connection can go both
ways: retrieving, using and manipulating existing content
according to user's goals ("do what the user means"); and creating,
rearranging, and managing content that matches the author's
intentions ("do what the author means").
The ultimate success of Semantic Computing requires new, synergized
technologies to be developed from natural language processing, signal
processing and pattern recognition, data and knowledge engineering,
and other fields.
