Call for Tutorials: The Joint International Semantic Technology Conference (JIST 2011)

28 Aug 2011 - 00:00
Deadline: 15 Sept, 2011
December 4-7, 2011
Hangzhou, China
The Joint International Semantic Technology Conference (JIST) is a regional federation of Semantic Web related conferences. The mission of JIST is to bring together researchers in disciplines related to the semantic technology from across the Asia-Pacific Region. JIST 2011 incorporates the Asian Semantic Web Conference 2011 (ASWC 2011) and Chinese Semantic Web Conference 2011 (CSWC 2011).
Besides the main technical programme, JIST will host a number of tutorials on topics related to the general theme of the conference. We welcome submissions of tutorial proposals on all major topics related to semantic technologies, including, but not limited to those covered by the main conference:
  • Applications of the Semantic Web
  • Management of Semantic Web Data
  • Ontology and Reasoning
  • Social Semantic Web
  • user Interfaces to the Semantic Web
JIST tutorials may be either for a full day or for a half day, but the rationale for the choice needs to be explained in the proposal. Tutorials may focus entirely on theoretical aspects; however, we encourage organisers to incorporate hands-on sessions where appropriate. Finally, we expect proposers to consider tutorials as educational events first, therefore they
should plan to provide the attendees with a comprehensive introduction to the state-of-the-art in the tutorial’s topic before moving on to
cover specific approaches in more depth.
