Semantic computing is currently emerging as a new field that integrates
methods from multimedia (computer vision, speech processing), natural
language processing, Semantic Web and ontology engineering, software
engineering, and other fields with the goal of creating new applications
that intuitively connect formulated user intentions with the content of
digital data. Leading organizations such as the Semantic Technology

Semantic computing is currently emerging as a new field that integrates
methods from multimedia (computer vision, speech processing), natural
language processing, Semantic Web and ontology engineering, software
engineering, and other fields with the goal of creating new applications
that intuitively connect formulated user intentions with the content of
digital data. Leading organizations such as the Semantic Technology
Institute (STI) International based in Vienna, Austria and the Institute
for Semantic Computing based in Newport Beach, California, have taken
keen interest in the quickly developing multidisciplinary field.

This coming July the two organizations are proud to present the first
IEEE school on semantic computing in Berkley, California. The weeklong
program will provide an introduction to the field targeted towards
advanced undergraduate and graduate students. Topics include Formal
Semantics, NLP, Multimedia Analysis, Semantic Web and Ontological
Engineering. A mixture of young and well-established researchers and
educators will present recent research results; tutorials and hands-on
sessions will be provided; the number of attendees will be limited to
ensure heavy student-tutor interaction; and the program will be
highlighted by several keynote talks by internationally renowned
experts. Room and board, as well the summer school social event, is
included in registration price.

Interested applicants are encouraged to visit the website
<http://sssc2009.org/> for more information. Application deadline is May
1, 2009.
