* The Joint International Semantic Technology Conference (JIST 2011)
* http://www.jist-conference.org/
*******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

- 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
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.
