Table of Contents

The ESWC is a major venue for discussing the latest scientific results and technology innovations around semantic technologies. Building on its past success, ESWC is seeking to broaden its focus to span other relevant related research areas in which Web semantics plays an important role.

The goal of the Semantic Web is to create a Web of knowledge and services in which the semantics of content is made explicit and content is linked to both other content and services allowing novel applications to combine content from heterogeneous sites in unforeseen ways and support enhanced matching between users needs and content. This network of knowledge-based functionality will weave together a large network of human knowledge, and make this knowledge machine-processable to support intelligent behaviour by machines. Creating such an interlinked Web of knowledge which spans unstructured text, structured data (e.g. RDF) as well as multimedia content and services requires the collaboration of many disciplines, including but not limited to: Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Databases and Information Systems, Information Retrieval, Machine Learning, Multimedia, Distributed Systems, Social Networks, Web Engineering, and Web Science. These complementarities are reflected in the outline of the technical program of the ESWC 2019. ESWC 2019 will present the latest results in research, technologies and applications in its field. Besides the technical program organized over twelve tracks, the conference will feature a workshop and tutorial program, a dedicated track on Semantic Web challenges, system descriptions and demos, a posters exhibition and a doctoral symposium.

Call for Papers ESWC 2019 Research Track

The research track of ESWC 2019 is looking for novel and significant research contributions addressing theoretical, analytical and empirical aspects of the Semantic Web. 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 research on the Semantic Web, and are expected to provide some principled means of evaluation. Specifically, all papers should include evaluations of the approaches described in the paper. We strongly encourage evaluations that are repeatable. We also strongly encourage papers that provide links to: the data sets, source code, queries and other resources.

Based on previous years submissions, this year we are setting up nine research tracks that reflect some of the main research areas of the Semantic Web and its intersection with other scientific disciplines:

*   Ontologies and Reasoning
*   Linked Data
*   Natural Language Processing and Information Retrieval
*   Semantic Data Management and Data Infraestructures
*   Social and Human Aspects of the Semantic Web
*   Machine Learning
*   Distribution and Decentralization
*   Velocity on the Web
*   Research of Research

Delineation from the other Tracks

We strongly recommend that prospective authors carefully check the calls of the other main tracks of the conference in order to identify the optimal track for their submission.

Papers that describe the use of semantic web technologies in practical settings should be submitted to the in-use track.

Authors who want to present an interesting industry application but who do not want to submit a full paper should submit to the industry track.

Papers describing concrete resources (datasets, ontologies, vocabularies, annotated corpora, workflows, knowledge graphs, evaluation benchmarks, etc.) should be submitted to the resources track.

Review Criteria

Papers in this track will be reviewed according to the following criteria:

*   Originality
*   Novelty
*   Relevance and impact of the research contributions
*   Soundness
*   Design and execution of the evaluation of the work
*   Clarity and quality of presentation
*   Grounding in the literature


Important dates and submission guidelines are specified here

Authors will have the opportunity to submit a rebuttal to the reviews to clarify questions posed by program committee members. Program Chairs
