  • Knowledge-enabled Computing and Computing for Human Experience:
    Creation, extraction and application of knowledge and knowledge-based techniques for cyber-physical and socio-technical systems, including improved perception and semantic techniques.
  • Semantics-enabled services, sensor and social computing on the Web 3.0: Includes Semantic Sensor Web, mobile semantic services (analysis of tweets and social networking), Citizen Sensor Networking and its combination with multi-level sensing for situational awareness, collective intelligence, advertisement on social networking site, smart/semantic mashups, annotation of enterprise/WSDL and light-weight/RESTful/WebAPI services, cloud computing middleware--semantic approaches to leveraging multiple clouds.
  • Semantic Web and Semantic Applications: Domain model enhanced NLP and statistical techniques for information extraction, mining social content such as Wikipedia, spatio-temporal-thematic analytics, knowledge discovery and intermediation, multi-ontology and complex relations, semantic search/directory/personalization/analytics, Relationship Web, etc.
Key application domains: biomedicine and human effectiveness, health care informatics, defence and intelligence (including sensor), social computing.

  • Information Integration; Pan-Web and Enterprise Information Interoperability (including, Federated Information Systems, Multi-agent and information brokering architectures, ontology and metadata management).
