Pragmatic Web Track
We are delighted to host the 4th AIS SigPrag International Pragmatic Web Conference Track at I-SEMANTICS. The special track is centered around the study of “pragmatics” in the Semantic Web. 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. For additional information see http://www.pragmaticweb.info/
