A number of prominent members of the Semantic Web community are now beginning to claim that the Semantic Web has arrived. Semantic Web search engines now index tens of thousands of ontologies and the term 'Semantic Web' regularly appears in the mainstream news and culture. Additionally, the number of Semantic Web events attracting several hundred attendees grows larger every year and industrial interest includes the majority of the large software and service companies. The 4th Asian Semantic Web Conference (ASWC 2009) will present the latest research and development of the Semantic Web and its related technologies. It will bring together researchers in relevant disciplines such as artificial intelligence, knowledge modeling, logic, databases, social networks, Web services, distributed computing, Web engineering, information systems, natural language processing, multimedia, and human‐computer interaction. ASWC 2009  will include a Research Track, a Semantic Web in Use Track, a Poster and Demonstration Track. ASWC 2009 also encourages the submission of proposals for workshops and tutorials.
