The IEEE Internet Computing Magazine seeks original manuscripts for a Special Issue on "Semantic-based Knowledge Management" scheduled to appear in September/October 2007.
The role of semantics for information integration and analysis has been studied for a long time. In the context of the recent activity in the Semantic Web, the availability of methodologies and tools for ontology development has allowed knowledge representation to make practical inroads through successful development of large numbers of domain ontologies. Use of ontologies to develop new classes of semantic applications is particularly evident in the fields of life sciences, health care, government and technology-intensive sectors. Increasing adoption of W3C recommendations such as RDF, and to a lesser extent OWL, has allowed emerging as well as mainstream industry to bring new tools and products, as exemplified by RDF support by Oracle.
As semantic technologies prove their
value with targeted
Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
Use of Semantics in Knowledge Services and Service Science (where the technical, human and organizational aspects of services are considered)
Engineering of ontologies for Knowledge Management and Services
Architectures, Algorithms and representations for Semantic Web approaches to Organizational Information Systems
Organizational knowledge integration or organizing domain knowledge using ontologies, semantic metadata and other semantic capabilities
Design and modelling of Semantic Web Resource or Service repositories and distributed knowledge-based systems in the organizational context
Business Modelling and Business processes as mediated by Semantic technology with support for technical, human and organizational components
Ontologies related to organizational and people/participants, including competencies and competency description standards and schemas, and their application to organizational memory and organizational learning, and productivity or collaboration enhancements
Practical frameworks of organizational value as associated to Semantic Web technology
Semantic Technology in the framework of organizational learning and organizational behaviour.
Use of semantic technology to enhance knowledge access and re-use
Use of semantic technology to promote knowledge sharing and collaboration
