    Information-integrated collaboration networks have become an important part of today’s complex enterprise systems ? this becomes obvious if we consider, as a prominent example, the high dynamics of network-centric systems, which need to react to changes at the level of their information and communication space by providing flexible mechanisms to manage a wide variety of information resources, heterogeneous, decentralized, and constantly evolving. Semantic technologies promise to deliver innovative and effective solutions to this problem, facilitating the realization of information integration mechanisms that allow collaboration systems to provide the added value they are expected to.

    Two fundamental problems are inherent to the design of integrated collaboration solutions: (i) semantic inaccessibility, caused by the failure to explicitly specify the semantic content of the information contained within the subsystems that must share information in order to collaborate effectively; and (ii) logical disconnectedness: caused by the failure to explicitly represent constraints between the information managed by the different collaborating subsystems.

    Mainstream EAI technologies deal with information and information management tasks at the syntactic level. Data protocols and standards that are used to facilitate seamless information exchange and ‘plug and play’ interoperability do not take into account the meaning of the underlying information and the view of the individual stakeholders on the information exchanged. What is lacking are mechanisms that have the ability to capture, store, and manage the meaning of the data and artifacts that need to be shared for collaborative problem solving, decision support, planning, and execution.

    Semantic information sharing and integration technologies will provide an important collaboration enabling mechanism for the emerging net-centric systems and the information grid. Further, it is likely that advances in this area will support multiple modes of collaboration with disparate and cross-cutting technologies. This workshop, held as part of CTS 2012, will bring together researchers and experts interested in bridging the gaps between the different technologies, and between technologies and applications. We invite original contributions on the technology practice and user experience for these emerging and important areas from researchers in academia, industry, and research institutions.

    The workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

    Semantically-enabled Service Oriented Architectures (SOA)

    Ontology-based Methods for Information Integration

    Semantics-based Integration and Interoperability

    Semantic Workflow Orchestration

    Semantic Mediation Methods

    Semantic Discovery and Matchmaking Services

    Collaborative Knowledge Engineering and Management

    Using Semantic Wikis for Collaborative Applications

    Semantic Searching

    Semantics for Mobility


    Semantic Technologies and Languages

    Agile Development of Semantic Applications

    Semantically-enabled Integration Solutions for the Sensor Web, Healthcare, Life Sciences, Emergency Management, Energy Management, e-Commerce, Finance, Marketing, and Advertising


    You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to semantic technologies and information-integrated collaboration. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 8 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to for the submission details) will also be accepted for submission. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via the Workshop paper submission site at …

    Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the Workshop.

    Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the CTS 2012 Conference Web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings are projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed accordingly.

    If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the workshop organizers.
