Call for papers:

The next generation of the Web will be the semantic Web where semantic contents of the Web resources will be interpretable not only by human but also by machine. One popular approach for Semantic Web consists of describing this semantic contents through metadata.

Knowledge Management (KM) is one of the key progress factors in organizations. It involves explicit and persistent representation of knowledge of (geographically) dispersed groups of people in the organization, so as to improve the activities of the organization.
When the organization knowledge is distributed among several experts and documents, the Internet or an Intranet inside the organization and Web technologies can be a privileged means for acquisition, modelling, management of this distributed knowledge.
One promising approach relies on the analogy between the resources constituting a corporate memory and the resources accessible through the Web.
A corporate memory can thus be materialised in a "corporate semantic Web" made up of documents, ontologies and semantic annotations on these documents by using the conceptual vocabulary of ontologies.

The objective of the workshop is to enable fruitful discussions between "Semantic Web" and "Knowledge Management" communities, about possible approaches of knowledge management based on such corporate semantic Webs.

Long papers or position papers are welcome in any area concerning knowledge management through corporate semantic Webs.

We specially expect papers discussing about the following issues:
