We especially encourage contributions that illustrate the applicability of the topics mentioned above for industrial purposes and/or illustrate the business relevance of their contribution for specific industries.
We invite contributions to the following tracks:
==== Research and Innovation Track
The Research and Innovation track at SEMANTiCS welcomes papers on novel scientific research and/or innovations relevant to the topics of the conference. Submissions must be original and must not have been submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers must follow the guidelines given in the author instructions, including references and optional appendices. Each submission will be reviewed by several PC members who will judge it based on its innovativeness, appropriateness, and impact of results in terms of effectiveness at solving real problems.
Important Dates: Abstract Submission Deadline: April 23, 2019 (11:59 pm, Hawaii time) Paper Submission Deadline: April 30, 2019 (11:59 pm, Hawaii time) Notification of Acceptance: June 10, 2019 (11:59 pm, Hawaii time) Camera-Ready Paper: July 29, 2019 (11:59 pm, Hawaii time)
Author instructions: Reviews will be carried out in a single-blind mode. Long papers should have a maximum length of 15 pages and short papers of 6 pages. Submissions should follow the guidelines of the Springer LNCS format.
==== Posters and Demos Track
The Posters and Demonstrations Track invites innovative work in progress, late-breaking research and innovation results, and smaller contributions in all fields related to the Semantic Web and Linked Data in a broader sense. These include submissions on innovative applications with impact on end users, such as demos of solutions that users may test or that are yet in the conceptual phase but are worth discussing, and also applications or pieces of code that may attract developers and potential research or business partners.
Important Dates (Posters & Demos) Paper Submission Deadline: June 10, 2019 (11:59 pm, Hawaii time) Notification of Acceptance: July 8, 2019 (11:59 pm, Hawaii time) Camera-Ready Paper: July 22, 2019 (11:59 pm, Hawaii time)
Author instructions: Proceedings will be published via CEUR Workshop proceedings and should follow the guidelines of the Springer LNCS format.
==== Industry and Use Case Track
Focusing strongly on industry needs and ground breaking technology trends SEMANTICS invites presentations on enterprise solutions that deal with semantic processing of data and/or information. A special focus of Semantics 2019 will be on the convergence of machine learning techniques and knowledge graphs. Additional topics of interest are Enterprise Knowledge Graphs, Semantic AI & Machine Learning, Enterprise Data Integration, Linked Data & Data Publishing, Semantic Search, Recommendation Services, Thesaurus and/or Ontology Management, Text Mining, Data Mining and any related fields. All submissions should have a strong focus on real-world applications beyond the prototypical stage and demonstrate the power of semantic systems!
Important Dates: Proposal Deadline: May 27, 2019 (11:59 pm, Hawaii time) Notification of Acceptance: June 10, 2019 (11:59 pm, Hawaii time)
A detailed Call for Industry and Use Case Presentations will be available soon.
==== Workshops and Tutorials
Workshops and Tutorials at SEMANTiCS 2018 allow your organisation or project to advance and promote your topics and gain increased visibility. The workshops and tutorials will provide a forum for presenting widely recognised contributions and findings to a diverse and knowledgeable community. Furthermore, the event can be used as a dissemination activity in the scope of large research projects or as a closed format for research and commercial project consortia meetings.
Important Dates for Workshops: Workshop Proposals: March 4, 2019 (23:59 Hawaii Time) Notification of Acceptance: March 18, 2019 (23:59 Hawaii Time)
Important Dates for Tutorials (and other meetings, e.g. seminars, show-cases, etc., without call for papers): Submission deadline: May 6, 2019 (23:59 Hawaii Time) Notifications: May 13, 2019 (23:59 Hawaii Time)
==== Vocabulary Innovation Award #VIA
Bootstrap your vocabulary project: At the Vocabulary Innovation Award you can present your ideas, early stage or camera-ready vocabularies in order to showcase your work, find the right people and get the discussion going. For this event, we provide both, an academic and industry track. We use a broad definition of what a vocabulary is. For instance, ontologies, classification schemes, thesauri, taxonomies, subject heading and metadata schemes, whichever their format, be it RDF or not, are all welcome. More details will follow. Proposal Deadline: May 20, 2019 (11:59 pm, Hawaii time) Notification of Acceptance: June 03, 2019 (11:59 pm, Hawaii time)
