> Dear colleague,
> I am pleased to announce the workshop "Terra Cognita -
> directions to the Geospatial Semantic Web" will be held on
> 6th November 2006, in conjunction with the Fifth
> International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC'06) in Athens,
> Georgia, USA.
> The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers
> from the semantic web and formal logic communities who are
> searching for real-world case studies to stretch their
> modelling languages and algorithms, with domain experts who
> have perhaps yet to implement semantic applications using
> their spatial understanding. The intended audience also
> includes those "in the middle" with an interest in formal
> spatial reasoning, exploitation of relational spatial
> databases, and standards for implementation of the
> geospatially enabled Semantic Web.
> Topics of interest include:
> * Authoring of geographic and geospatial ontologies
> * Algorithms and software for geospatial reasoning,
> inference, rules processing, and query.
> * Representation and interoperability of geography at
> different levels of semantic abstraction: geometry, topology,
> cartography, and real world object descriptions.
> * Representation, communication, and reasoning with
> spatial relationships
> * Representation and processing of geographically
> ambiguous or unstructured concepts and extents.
> * Semantic mediation between information communities with
> geospatial dependencies.
> * Semantic Web services for geospatial content
> (discovery, binding, invocation, composition, and orchestration)
> More information and submission instructions are available at
> http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/terracognita >
> We welcome submissions from you or members of your research
> group, and look forward to seeing you at Terra Cognita '06.
> Kind regards,
