Semantic Computing & Applications


IEEE Transaction on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC) seeks original manuscripts for a Special Issue on Advances in Semantic Computing scheduled to appear in July, 2015.

Semantic Computing (SC) is Computing based on Semantics (“meaning”, "context", “intention”). It addresses all types of resource including data, document, tool, device, process and people. The scope of SC includes analytics, semantics description languages and integration, interfaces, and its applications in biomed, IoT, cloud computing, SDN, wearable computing, context awareness, mobile computing, search engines, question answering, big data, multimedia, services, etc. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Analytics: Structured data, image and video, audio and speech, natural language
• Description and Integration: Semantics description languages, ontology integration, interoperability 
 Interfaces: Natural language, multi-modal
• Use of Semantics in IT: such as multimedia, IoT, big data, deep learning, cloud computing, SDN, wearable computing, mobile computing, search engines, Q&A, web services
 Use of Semantics in Interdisciplinary Applications: such as biomedicine, healthcare, manufacturing, engineering, education, finance, entertainment, business, science
