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
