3rd International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC2009)

The third IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC2009)
continues to foster the growth of a new research community. The conference
builds on the success of ICSC2007 and ICSC2008 as an international 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 the field. The event is located in
Berkeley, California. The technical program of ICSC2009 includes workshops,
invited keynotes, paper presentations, panel discussions, and more. Submissions
of high-quality papers describing mature results or on-going work are invited.

Areas of interest include:
Semantic Analysis

- Natural language processing
- Image and video analysis
- Audio and speech analysis
- Data and web mining
- Analysis of behaviors of software, services and networks
- Analysis of social networks

Semantic Integration
- Metadata and other description languages
