Jazoon call for SemWeb papers and demos

The Jazoon Java conference to be held end of June 2007 in Switzerland has opened its call for papers. I am on the program committee, and am pushing for Semantic Web technologies to be represented in the conference. Other program committee members are supportive.

There is a huge amount of open source Java work going on in this area and it is time for these technologies to be presented and explained to the larger Java community, which represent over 4 million developers.

Please have a look at the Call for Papers and contact me with your ideas as soon as possible so that I can get some initial feedback from the other members.

I am also looking at what can be done for the Java One conference in 2007, so I will try to pass on any suggestions or proposals you send me for Jazoon on to Java One organizers too.

Comments:

I would love to do a paper on Semantic Web Components. One way to get SemWeb into wider adoption is to make it easy to build websites with gadgets/widgets/components that encode data/metadata in RDF and make them widely available to be used with web design tools (like Dreamweaver)

Dorai, do you have some software that does this in Java? One very good candidate for either conference in my opinion is D2RQ, the software put together by the Freie University of Berlin. It makes it very easy to understand how to make actual data stored in relational databases useful. At the Java conferences we need some real working code that makes a simple point, as we need to both explain the SemWeb and show how it can be useful. This year I think will be a little testing the waters time. Also don't forget that the JavaOne conference deadline is Dec 15th, and the Jazoon deadline has been extended to December 31.
