Dear All

The 2nd SemHE workshop will be co-located with ECEL '10 (the 9th European Conference on e-Learning) in Porto on 3 November this year. Both full and short (or position) papers are invited by 8 October. We would be grateful if you were able to disseminate this call and we will be looking forward to your contribution and participation.

Kind regards
Thanassis Tiropanis

SemHE '10: THE SECOND INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON SEMANTIC WEB APPLICATIONS IN HIGHER EDUCATION

co-located with ECEL '10: The 9th European Conference on e-Learning
(http://www.academic-conferences.org/ecel/ecel2010/ecel10-home.htm)

Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto, Porto, Portugal, 3 November 2010

PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 8 OCTOBER 2010

============================================================

This workshop is the second in a series investigating the potential of semantic web technologies in higher education. There has been much interest in this topic within the Technology Enhanced Learning, the Higher Education Support and the Web Science communities. Recently, there is particular interest in how linked data technologies could address HE challenges. Following the success of the 1st SemHE workshop last year, SemHE will continue to involve a wider international audience, report on developments and discuss future research directions. SemHE is inviting the submission of both full papers and short (or position) papers in this area.

SemHE is supported by the communities of the SemTech and ENSEMBLE projects that organised the 1st SemHE workshop in 2009. 

============================================================
TOPICS
============================================================
Semantic Web technologies appear to hold the promise of providing efficient support for learning and teaching in Higher Education (HE) institutions.  Initially semantic technology adoption was hindered by issues such as ontology consensus, large-scale annotation of learning content and the underpinning pedagogy. However the emergence of Web 2.0 strategies for learning content annotation and linked data approaches to data integration seem to introduce a fresh and promising perspective.

There have been recent reports identifying the potential of semantic technologies and linked data in terms of addressing HE challenges. The emerging linked data movement appears to bring significant value in terms of interoperability, well-formedness of metadata, data integration, reasoning across resources and novel ways of collaboration and personalisation. In addition, innovative approaches that use semantic technologies for argumentation support and critical thinking are being developed.

There are opportunities and challenges in this emerging area of semantic technology adoption that this workshop wishes to address. In particular, the workshop will focus on the following themes:

- Semantic Web applications for Learning and Teaching Support in Higher Education
- Use of linked data in repositories inside or across institutions
- Collaborative learning and critical thinking enabled by semantic Web applications
- Interoperability among Universities based on Semantic Web standards
- Ontologies and reasoning to support pedagogical models
- Transition from soft semantics and lightweight knowledge modelling to machine processable, hard semantics
- University workflows using semantic Web applications and standards

============================================================
