[Summary: We intend to run an informal symposium to gather the U.S. community interested in foundations and applications of Semantic Web technologies. Please let us know by February 20 if you would be potentially interested in participating. Long version below.]

1st U.S. Semantic Symposium (USSS) – Indication of Interest

The Semantic Web is an inherently multi-disciplinary field. The Artificial Intelligence community has contributed much in the way of formal logic and knowledge representation. Similarly, the applied computer science community, along with industry and government agencies, have contributed with application development and testing. With an ever-growing dependence on the web, natural science researchers, geoscience and biology to name a few, have also taken an increasing interest in the Semantic Web.

Yet, the division between computer science, natural science, and academia/government/industry, has a downside. It limits the formation of a coherent national agenda for exploring emerging trends in Semantic Technologies. What are needed are community consolidation and the building of a U.S.-based community research network.

The goal of the 1st U.S. Semantic Symposium is to bring together the U.S. Semantic Web community and begin forming such a research network. We aim to achieve this by supporting communication across disciplinary, organizational, and geographical boundaries. The Symposium will provide a forum by which participants can share information and ideas, coordinate ongoing or planned research activities, foster synthesis and new collaborations, develop community standards, and advance their science and education through communication and the sharing of ideas.

To this end, the Symposium will be an informal gathering with plenty of time for discussion and breakout sessions. We encourage anyone with an interest in the Semantic Web, regardless of field, to attend. Given the diversity of the field, we are at this time identifying the size of the interested community in order to identify adequate facilities and agenda. We anticipate a one-day symposium to be held in the Washington D.C. area during summer of 2016.

Submit your intention to participate and Symposium agenda ideas to Tom Narock [tnarock@marymount.edu], by February 20 if at all possible.
