                           3rd CALL FOR PAPERS

                            International Conference on
                    Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of
               Semantics for Large Scale Information Systems (ODBASE)

                   October 29 - November 1, Irvine, California

                   Proceedings to be published by IEEE Press

    A key challenge in making the Internet and the Web a more friendly and
    productive place is to fill more meaning to the vast and continuously
    growing amount of data on the Net. This is a vision that is shared
    both by the Worl Wide Web community, incarnated by the notion of the
    ôSemantic Webö coined by Tim Berners Lee, and researchers from a
    number of areas including data and knowledge engineering, databases,
    intelligent agent systems, information retrieval, information sciences
    and linguistics. The claim is that the emergence of meaning that is
    associated with data and documents found on the Internet will boost
    diverse applications such as e-commerce, enterprise and information
    integration, knowledge engineering, geographic information systems,
    digital libraries, ubiquitous computing, and intelligent information
    access. Data semantics and ontologies for large-scale information
    systems have become an important topic in research communities across
    several displines, research funding agencies, as well as various

    The international conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and
    Applications of Semantics intends to create a forum to exchange views,
    ideas and experiences on ontologies and data semantics from different
    disciplines. A goal of the ODBASE conference is to bring researchers
    from databases, Semantic Web, and knowledge management together to
    discuss specific problems and promising approaches to providing more
    meaning for the growing amount of data on the Internet and in
    ubiquitous computing. A unique character of the ODBASE conferences is
    its specialization on data semantic issues for very large ontology and
    Internet systems, and its strong emphasis on interdisciplinarity and
    practical applicability of systems, tools and methods for supporting
    semantics in large-scale information systems. The program committee of
    ODBASE 2002 consists of leading experts from diverse discplines
    including formal ontology, databases, geographic information systems,
    library science, logic, and knowledge management. We have special
    interest in papers that bridge traditionally separated areas such as
    databases, intelligent systems, and knowledge engineering, and papers
    that address issues of scalability in data semantics on the Internet
    and ubiquitous computing systems.

    ODBASE'02 is part of the Federated Symposium Event that is organized
    within the global theme "On the Move to Meaningful Internet Systems
    and Ubiquitous Computing 2002". This federated event co-locates three
    related and complementary successful conferences in the areas of
    Intelligent Networked Information Systems, covering key issues in Data
    and Web Semantics (ODBASE'02), Distributed Objects, Infrastructure and
    Enabling Technology and Internet Computing (DOA'02), and Workflow,
    Cooperation, and Interoperability (CoopIS'02), as required for the
    deployment of Internet- and Intranet-based systems in organizations
    and for e-business. More details about this federated event can be
    found at

         Paper Submission Deadline: May 31, 2002
         Acceptance Notification: July 15, 2002
         Final Version Due: August 20, 2002
         Conference: October 30 - November 1, 2002


         All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality,
         significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. Papers
         that bridge two or more areas should be marked as BRIDGE papers. They
         will be reviewed jointly by the appropriate PC sub-areas. All
         submissions must be in English. Research submissions must not exceed
         8,000 words. Submissions can either be in Postscript, MS Word, or Pdf
         format and should be done through the following URL


         The final proceedings will be published by IEEE Press. Failure to
         commit to presentation at the conference automatically excludes a
         paper from the proceedings.
