Detection, Representation, and Exploitation of Events in the Semantic Web (DeRiVE 2012)
The goal of this workshop is to strengthen the participation of the semantic web community in the recent surge of research on the use of events as a key concept for representing knowledge and organising and structuring media on the web. The workshop invites contributions to three central questions, and its goal is to formulate answers to these questions that advance and reflect the current state of understanding. Each submission will be expected to address at least two questions explicitly, if possible including a system demonstration. This year, we specifically invite contributions that address both event and conversation semantics in multimedia and social media. The most substantial contributions to the workshop will be presented orally (and if possible with a demo) in sessions organised according to the questions addressed, with time allocated for deep discussion. The workshop will also include a lightning talk session for late-breaking work.
