Call for Applications

IEEE International Summer School on Semantic Computing

July 20-24, 2009

at the

University of California, Berkeley

co-sponsored  by  the Institute of Semantic Computing and STI International

Semantic Computing is currently emerging as a new field that 
integrates  methods  from  multimedia (computer vision, speech
processing), natural language processing, Semantic Web and  ontology
engineering, software engineering, and other fields, with the goal of
creating new applications that connect intuitively  formulated user
intentions with the content of data. The  summer  school  will provide
an introduction to the field to senior undergraduate and graduate
students. A mix  of  young  and well-established  researchers  and 
educators will present recent research results, as for example presented
in  the  IEEE  conferences  on  Semantic Computing. The tutorials will
be complemented
by keynote talks by renowned experts in  the  respective areas.

The 5-day event is taking place on the campus of  the  University of 
California, Berkeley and the curriculum will include the following topics:

- Formal Semantics
- Semantic Web and Services
- Ontology Engineering
- Multimedia
- Natural Language Processing
