    *** *Scope* ***
    The next generation of the Web will be the semantic Web where
    semantic contents of the Web resources will be interpretable not
    only by human but also by machine. One popular approach for
    Semantic Web consists of describing this semantic contents
    through metadata.
    Knowledge Management (KM) is one of the key progress factors in
    organizations. It involves explicit and persistent representation
    of knowledge of (geographically) dispersed groups of people in
    the organization, so as to improve the activities of the
    When the organization knowledge is distributed among several
    experts and documents, the Internet or an Intranet inside the
    organization and Web technologies can be a privileged means for
    acquisition, modelling, management of this distributed knowledge.
    One promising approach relies on the analogy between the resources
    constituting a corporate memory and the resources accessible
    through the Web.
    A corporate memory can thus be materialised in a "corporate
    semantic Web" made up of documents, ontologies and semantic
    annotations on these documents by using the conceptual vocabulary
    of ontologies.
    The objective of the workshop is to enable fruitful discussions
    between "Semantic Web" and "Knowledge Management" communities,
    about possible approaches of knowledge management based on such
    corporate semantic Webs.
    Long papers or position papers are welcome in any area concerning
    knowledge management through corporate semantic Webs.
    We specially expect papers discussing about the following issues:
    o Role of enterprise models in corporate semantic Webs ?
    o What kind of ontologies can be useful for such corporate
        semantic Webs?
    o How to build such ontologies ?
    o Techniques for (semi-)automatic building of such ontologies or
        annotations from the corporate information sources (such as
        textual or multimedia documents or databases)?
    o Possible role of indexing techniques and of thesaurus in a
        corporate semantic Web approach?
    o Ontology representation languages for a corporate semantic Web?
    o How to tackle multiple viewpoints in a corporate semantic Web?
    o Interoperability between ontologies or integration of multiple
    o Cooperative building, adaptation and evolution of a corporate
        semantic Web?
    o Query languages for a corporate semantic Web, (Intelligent)
        Information retrieval from a corporate semantic Web ?
    o Agent-based approaches for building and management of a corporate
        semantic Web and for information retrieval from a corporate
        semantic Web ?
    o Users interfaces for building and using a corporate semantic Web?
    o Features specific to corporate semantic Web w.r.t. open Semantic
        Web ?
    o Concrete applications of corporate semantic Webs ?
    o Techniques for optimising metadata storage and query processing
        for a corporate semantic Web?
    o Management of multilinguism in a corporate semantic Web.
