Semantic Web Challenge 2019

The International Semantic Web Conference is the premier venue for presenting fundamental research, innovative technology, and applications concerning semantics, data, and the Web.

In this track of ISWC 2018, we are looking for novel and significant research contributions addressing theoretical, analytical and empirical aspects of the Semantic Web. While we welcome work that relates to the W3C Semantic Web recommendations (e.g., RDF, OWL, SPARQL, etc.), we also encourage contributions to research at the intersection of Semantic Web and other scientific disciplines. Submissions to the research track should describe original, significant, and replicable research on the Semantic Web. All papers must include  method evaluations that are rigorous, repeatable and reproducible. This will be one of the key paper reviewing criteria. We also strongly encourage papers that provide links to the data sets, source code, queries used to evaluate their approach, and/or live deployments.

All papers will be assessed by a program committee. Each paper will be reviewed by at least four committee members, including one senior member. The review criteria used are outlined below.

Before submitting, authors are asked to consult the calls of the other tracks featured at ISWC 2018 and to choose the track that best suits their contribution. The submission of the same work to multiple tracks is not allowed and may result in a rejection of the work across all tracks without a review.

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Database, information retrieval, information extraction, natural language processing and artificial intelligence techniques for the Semantic Web
  • Knowledge representation and reasoning on the Web
  • Knowledge graphs and deep semantics
  • Machine learning and data mining methods for the Semantic Web
  • Data mining and knowledge discovery in Linked data and ontologies
