Jazoon call for papers
By bblfish on Nov 27, 2007
Jazoon is a Java conference taking place in Zürich, Switzerland in the summer, June 23 - 26 2008 to be precise. The Jazoon conference committee has sent out a request for papers. My submission last year "Web 3.0, this is the semantic web" was very well attended. I also met some great folk such as Dean Allemang and Harold Carr. It is a smaller conference so you get more time to meet people than at JavaOne, but they also get some famous people to come along, such as Roy Fielding who gave a keynote presentation.
Anyway, the call for papers is up till the end of December. So hurry up to add your contribution.
I will put forward a talk on a Semantic Address Book that I submitted for this year's JavaOne. The good news there is that there have been at least three talks on the Semantic Web put forward for J1 this year that I directly know about, and indirectly I believe there are a lot more. I really hope that at least three of them will get accepted, which would make for a nice SemWeb track. Hey, there were two talks on the subject at Jazoon! There should be at least the following talks in my opinion at J1:
- a talk to introduce the semantic web and reasoning - even if this touches only slightly on Java
- a talk explaining how a real hyperdata application was written in Java
- a panel on the current state and the future of semantic web tools on the Java platform.
I suppose I should also put something forward for JavaPolis... Anyone know what the deadlines are there?
