The 1st Asian Semantic Web Conference - International and European based conference series such as the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) and the European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC) present the latest results in research and application of semantic web technologies. In order to expand these efforts into the East, it is time to initiate similar series in Asia.
It is our pleasure to announce the 1st Annual Asian Semantic Web Conference (ASWC) which will be held in Beijing early September of 2006. Theis event will be a conjunctive as well as a complementary measure to ISWC and ESWC and therefore will be strongly aligned with these two events. ASWC will be the first regional conference on semantic web technologies taking place in Asia.
