SOAS, University of London



 Call for Papers, Videos and Participation

 Aims and Scope

 The Semantic Web is currently the most evolving area of the Internet
development. This Second-Generation Web is based not on HTML but on XML
and related technologies, such as RDF, Topic Maps, Ontologies,
Namespaces, and others. The 'Semantic Web' is "a vision: the idea of
data on the Web defined and linked in a way that it can be used by
machines for automation, integration and reuse". The Semantic Web not
only requires adapting existing visualisation techniques and developing
new approaches, but also opens wide opportunities for their practical
implementation. The "Visualisation of the Semantic Web" was started in
2001 as the first International Symposium specially devoted to the
visual aspects of the Second Generation Web. The symposium seeks
original research papers that deal with, but are not limited to, the
following topics:

 · Visualisation of Semantic Information and Metadata
 · Visual Design of Ontologies and Schemas
 · Conceptual Modelling of XML Data Using UML
 · Topic Maps Technology
 · Rendering and Viewing XML Documents
 · Semantic Virtual Environments and MetaVR
 · Visual Information Filtering and Knowledge Discovery
 · New Visualisation Techniques for the Semantic Web
 · Semantic-Oriented Use of Existing Visualisation Methods
 · Multimedia Interfaces for XML Documents and Ontologies
