Call for Papers

Eighth IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing


June 16th-18th, 2014, Newport Beach, CA, USA


Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society

The field of Semantic Computing addresses the derivation of
semantic information from content and the connection of
semantics to knowledge, where "content" may be anything
including structured data, video, audio, text, hardware,
software, process, etc.

The Eighth IEEE International Conference on Semantic
Computing (ICSC 2014) continues to foster the growth of a
new research community. The conference builds on the success
of the past ICSC conferences 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 emerging research topics
and defining the future of the field. The event is located
in Newport Beach, California at Hyatt Regency Newport Beach.
The technical program of ICSC 2014 includes workshops,
invited keynotes, paper presentations, panel discussions,
industrial 'show and tells', demonstrations, and more.
Submissions of high-quality papers describing mature results
or ongoing work are invited.

The main goal of the conference is to foster the dialog between
experts in each sub-discipline. Therefore we especially encourage
submissions of work that is interesting to multiple areas, such
as multimodal approaches.
