Sixth IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing
September 19-21, 2012
Palermo, Italy

Semantic Computing addresses technologies that facilitate the derivation of semantics from content and connecting semantics into knowledge, where “content” may be anything such as video, audio, text, conversation, process, program, device, behavior, etc.

The Sixth IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC2012) continues to foster the growth of a new research community. The conference builds on the success of the past ICSC conferences as an international forum for researchers and practitioners to present research that advances the state of the art and practice of Semantic Computing, as well as identifying emerging research topics and defining the future of the field. The event is located in Palermo, Italy on the Piazza borsa hotel. The technical program of ICSC2012 includes workshops, invited keynotes, paper presentations, panel discussions, industrial “show and tells”, demonstrations, and more. Submissions of high-quality papers describing mature results or on-going work are invited.

The main goal of the conference is to foster the dialog between experts in each sub-discipline. Therefore we especially encourage submissions of work that is interesting to multiple areas, such as multimodal approaches.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Semantics based Analysis

  • Natural language processing
  • Image and video analysis
  • Audio and speech analysis
  • Data and web mining
  • Behavior of software, services and networks
  • Security

Semantic Integration

  • Metadata and other description languages
  • Ontology integration
  • Interoperability and service integration

Applications using Semantics

  • Search engines and question answering
  • Semantic web services
  • Content-based multimedia retrieval and editing
  • Context-aware networks of sensors, devices and applications
  • Machine translation
  • Creative art description
  • Medicine and biology
  • Semantic programming languages and software engineering
  • System design and synthesis
  • GIS

Semantic Interfaces

  • Natural language interfaces
  • Multimodal interfaces
  • Human centered computing

Old news:

- The IEEE CPS is working in setting up the PDFExpress check up. If PDF eXpress is not active authors may in any case submit their papers.

Note that PDF eXpress is not a submission site; authors may submit their papers without using PDF eXpress. Submitting a paper without using PDF eXpress will not compromise the paper; all papers are checked and verified by IEEE CPS. Authors will be notified if they find a problem with their paper.

- Advanced registration deadline has been extended to July 27th.

- We are pleased to report that the IEEE submission instructions are now available; please prepare and submit your paper using the instructions at

Because of the delay, the deadline for submitting the final, camera-ready version is now July 31.

- Unfortunately we have not received the link from IEEE for author's kit. We apologize for the inconvenience.

- Workshop-only registration available $450 (IEEE Members) and $600 (Non‐Members) for all workshop authors and attendees. The registration fee is one day only.

- Registration & camera ready Extended to July 20th

- Due to deadline extension, the acceptance notification has been delayed to July 6th 2012. We apologize for the inconvenience.

- Registration procedure open
- Approved 1st International Workshop on Data Quality Management and Semantic Technologies (DQMST)
- Approved 1st Workshop on Distributional Data Semantics (DiDaS 2012)
