      Submissions must be received by Feb. 25, 2009 and they must be in
      either MS doc or pdf formats (about 5 to 7 pages - single space,
      font size of 10 to 12). All reasonable typesetting formats are
      acceptable (later, the authors of accepted papers will be asked to
      follow a particular typesetting format to prepare their papers for
      publication.)

      The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited
      to 7 (IEEE style) pages. Papers must not have been previously
      published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The
      first page of the draft paper should include: title of the paper,
      name, affiliation, postal address, and email address for each author.
      The first page should also identify the name of the Contact Author
      and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the
      content of the paper. Finally, the name of the conference (SWWS)
      must be mentioned on the first page.

      Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity,
      impact, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by two experts
      in the field who are independent of the conference program committee.
      The referees' evaluations will then be reviewed by two members of
      the program committee who will recommend a decision to the co-chairs.
      The co-chairs will make the final decision. Lastly, the Camera-Ready
      papers will be reviewed by one member of the program committee.

      PROPOSAL FOR ORGANIZING SESSIONS/WORKSHOPS:

      Each session will have at least 6 paper presentations from
      different authors (12 papers in the case of workshops). The
      session chairs will be responsible for all aspects of their
      sessions; including, soliciting papers, reviewing, selecting, ...
      The names of session chairs will appear as Associate Editors in
      the conference proceedings and on the cover of the books.

      Proposals to organize sessions should include the following
      information: name and address (+ email) of proposer, title of
      session, a 100-word description of the topic of the session,
      the name of the conference the session is submitted for
      consideration (ie, SWWS'09), and a short description on how
      the session will be advertised (in most cases, session proposers
      solicit papers from colleagues and researchers whose work is
      known to the session proposer). email your session proposal
      to Prof. Arabnia (address is given above). We would like to
      receive the proposals by January 16, 2009.

      MEMBERS OF PROGRAM AND ORGANIZING COMMITTEES:

      The Program Committee includes members of chapters of World Academy
      of Science (chapters: supercomputing; scientific computing; AI;
      imaging science; databases; simulation; software engineering;
      embedded systems; internet and web technologies; communications;
      bioinformatics; computational biology; and computer security.)
      The Program Committee for SWWS is currently being formed. Those
      interested in joining the Program Committee should email Prof. Arabnia
      (hra@...) the following information: Name, affiliation
      and position, complete mailing address, email address, a short
      biography together with research interests and the name of the
      conference (SWWS) offering to help with.
      Many who have already joined the committees of individual tracks
      are renowned leaders, scholars, researchers, scientists and
      practitioners of the highest ranks; many are directors of research
      laboratories, fellows of various societies, heads/chairs of
      departments, deans and provosts.

      PURPOSE / HISTORY:

      SWWS'09 is an annual research conference about semantic web and
      web services. It is being held jointly (same location and dates)
      with a number of other conferences (WORLDCOMP'09). WORLDCOMP is
      the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science,
      computer engineering and applied computing.

      The motivation is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research topics
      into a coordinated meeting held in a common place at a common time.
      The main goal is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas in a number
      of research areas that interact. The model used facilitates
      communication among researchers from all over the world in different
      fields of computer science, computer engineering and applied
      computing. Both inward research (core areas of computer science and
      engineering) and outward research (multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary,
      and applications) will be covered during the event.

      SWWS'09 and WORLDCOMP'09 will be composed of research presentations,
      keynote lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel discussions,
      and poster presentations. In recent past, keynote and/or tutorial
      speakers included: Prof. David A. Patterson (U. of California,
      Berkeley); Prof. Michael J. Flynn (Stanford U.); Prof. John H. Holland
      (U. of Michigan, Ann Arbor); Prof. Brian D. Athey (U. of Michigan,
      Ann Arbor), Prof. H. J. Siegel (Colorado State U.); Prof. Barry Vercoe
      (MIT); Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (U. of California, Berkeley);
      Prof. Jun Liu (Harvard U.); Dr. Jim Gettys (OLPC + developer of X
      Window); Dr. Chris Rowen (President and CEO, Tensilica, Inc.); and
      many other distinguished speakers.

      LOCATION OF CONFERENCES:

      The conferences will be held in the Monte Carlo hotel, Las Vegas,
      Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels). This is
      a mega hotel with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000
      rooms. It is minutes from the airport with 24-hour shuttle
      service to and from the airport. This hotel has many recreational
      attractions, including: waterfalls, spa, pools, sunning decks, Easy
      River, wave pool, lighted tennis courts, health spa, nightly shows,
      a number of restaurants, ... The negotiated room rate for
      conference attendees is very reasonable. The hotel is within
      walking distance from most other attractions (recreational
      destinations, Golf courses, ...)
