The Web of Data is growing at an enormous pace. However, the development
of dedicated software applications, capable to deal efficiently in
information-rich spaces, of which the Semantic Web is one dimension, is
not yet mainstream. Reasons for that include one (or more) of the
following research issues: lack of integrated development environments
(IDEs, such as Visual Studio and Eclipse), poor programming language
support, lack of standard testbeds and/or benchmarks, inadequate
training, and perhaps the need for curricula revision. Properly
addressing these issues requires interdisciplinary skills, and the
collaboration between academia and industry.

The First Workshop on Programming the Semantic Web invites submissions
that explore the gap between today's data management challenges,
particularly the ones related to dealing with large amounts of
semantically rich data, and the lack of adequate tools. We are looking
for contributions that discuss, promote and further advance the
programming facet of the Semantic Web, including the development of new
languages, extension of existing ones, and the inclusion of semantic
enabled capabilities into existing IDEs.

Papers submitted to PSW'12 should explore open research problems, and
must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under review
for another workshop or conference. All papers will be peer-reviewed by
at least three PC members.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
*	Languages, tools, and methodologies for representing and managing 
Information-rich data
*	Novel programming paradigms aimed at the Semantic Web/ linked data 
/Information-rich spaces in general
*	Impact of specific application areas (e.g. e-science, e-gov, sensors) 
on Information-rich application design
*	Data Visualization
*	Programming Patterns for data handling
*	Evaluation of data quality
*	Plugins and IDEís for information rich application development
*	Ontologies, Schemata, Taxonomies and Types interplay
*	query, integration, and analysis of Semantic Web data
*	Cleaning and provenance of Semantic Web data, services, and processes
*	Mashing up data and processes


Papers submitted to *PSW 2012* should explore open research problems, and
must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under review
for another workshop or conference. All papers will be peer-reviewed by at
least three PC members.

The workshop will accept:
* Full research and experience papers (maximum length: 12 pages)
* Position and demonstration Papers (maximum length: 4 pages)

Submissions must be formatted in the style of the Springer Publications
format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
(http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0). Papers
should be submitted electronically, in PDF format, via EasyChair. All
submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the international program
committee. Paper acceptance will be based on originality, significance,
technical soundness, and clarity of presentation.

      Submission link coming soon!

* Best papers will have the opportunity to be published in a book on
Data Driven Programming, to be published by Springer fall 2013.*

At least one author per accepted paper must register and participate in the
workshop. Registration is subject to the terms, conditions and procedure
of the main ISWC conference to be found on their website.
