Classical reasoning over ontologies has reached the point where it can deal with large real-world ontologies. This can largely be attributed to advances in research on description logics (DLs). A good example is the medical ontology SNOMED-CT, containing over 300,000 concepts and millions of binary relationships between them. SNOMED-CT can be represented as a DL ontology, and its subsumption hierarchy can be computed in a matter of minutes.
The obvious next step now is to extend reasoning over ontologies to cover non-classical cases, such as commonsense reasoning, a well established branch of AI. The first steps in that direction ...

International Joint Conference on Computer Vision, Imaging and Computer Graphics Theory and Applications
The purpose of the International Joint Conference on Computer Vision, Imaging and Computer Graphics Theory and Applications is to bring together researchers and practitioners on the areas of computer vision, imaging, computer graphics and Information Visualization, interested in both theoretical advances and applications in these fields. Computer Vision, Imaging, Computer Graphics and Information Visualization are well known areas which are becoming more and more interrelated with important interdisciplinary work, often as a result of an iterative combined process of image analysis and synthesis with models created in one of the fields being used to improve models created in another.

Digital data and content are vital to all societies. Examples range from cultural heritages via digitization, scientific and experimental data from sensor, national defense satellite images from governments, financial records from corporations, medical and healthcare records from hospitals, personal collection of photos and videos from digital cameras and camcorders, to social networking from blogs and emails. The ability to effectively manage and protect digital content in creation, collection, preservation, and dissemination is increasingly crucial as digital technology continues to produce vast amounts of valuable and irreplaceable knowledge and information. A recent study by the International Data Corporation has shown that ...

First of all, welcome to the Second International Conference on Mobile Lightweight Systems!
The decision to organize a scientific event on wireless communications, where competition is really enormous was motivated by discussion with some colleagues about the current unprecedented request for lightweight, wireless communication devices with high usability and performance able to support added-value services in a highly mobile environment. Such devices follow the user everywhere he goes (at work, at home, while travelling, in a classroom, etc.), but also result in exciting research, development and business opportunities.
This scenario clearly demands significant upgrades to the existing communication ...
