5th AIS SigPrag International Pragmatic Web Conference Track (ICPW 2010)


at International Conference on Semantic Systems
(i-Semantics 2010)
1 – 3 September 2010, Messecongress|Graz, Austria



The 5th AIS SigPrag International Pragmatic Web Conference Track is a special track within the i-Semantics 2010. It s centered around the study of “pragmatics” in the Semantic Web. That is, it draws attention to how communicative actions with a pragmatic context are performed via Web media and illuminates how mutual understanding and commitments to actions can evolve in conversations.

TRUST AND COMMITMENT: Whether we look at our geo-political and environmental context, work within and between organizations, or our local communities, there has never been a greater need for understanding across cultural, intellectual, and other boundaries. Whether the context is international policy, distributed teamwork, e-business, or community mobilisation, fundamentally, people must build trust and commitment to common goals by talking and acting together.

What role does the Web have to play in these complex processes?

GET PRAGMATIC: The study of “pragmatics” is driven by an interest in action. It illuminates how it is that we manage to evolve mutual understanding and commitments in conversation. Central to this perspective is the understanding that the meaning of everything we say and do is contextual. When contexts change, meanings change in conversations, documents, and models of the world. This is something that we manage fluently in face-to-face conversation, but when working on the Web over space and time, tools must still support adaptation to new contexts. A focus on pragmatics draws attention to how communicative actions are performed via Web media.

THE PRAGMATIC WEB CONFERENCE TRACK at i-Semantics 2009 is a unique forum to envision and debate how the emerging social, semantic, multimedia Web mediates the ways in which we construct shared meaning. While there is much research and development into topics relevant to this challenge such as collaboration, usability, knowledge representation, and social informatics, the Pragmatic Web conference provides common ground for dialogue at the nexus of these topics.

WE INVITE YOU as a researcher or practitioner working on these challenges to join the special Pragmatic Web track at the i-Semantics 2009 in September to share your work, and to come and find out what others are doing. This is an emerging network of people exploring the intersection of established intellectual traditions and the fast changing Web: come and help shape the community!
