    Call for papers - "The Semantic Web" - a special issue of Information
    Research: an international electronic journal (http://informationr.net/ir/)

    Increasing the intelligibility of the Web is a compelling vision.
    Imagine how the utility of local data could be enhanced if they were
    Meaningfully linked to data posted by strangers far away. The Web could
    evolve into a comprehensive meaning system, a universal encyclopedia or
    "world brain," as prophesied by H.G. Wells.

    The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is actively promoting the Semantic
    Web as an extension of the current Web, but one in which information will
    Be given well-defined meaning thus facilitating the cooperation between
    computers and people. The crucial first step is to increase the
    functionality of Web machines to "understand" the data that they
    merely display at present.

    This call is for papers that discuss the challenges of transforming
    the current Web into a meaning space. The scope of discussion extends
    from technical challenges, such as affixing meaning to an XML (Extensible
    Markup Language) source, to linguistic and cultural barriers, such as the
    development of semantic tags that will be widely accepted and validly

    Questions and proposals for papers should be sent to the editor of the
    special issue:
