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.

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.

Important Dates (specific track dates are given below)

  • Abstract Submission Deadline: April 18, 2020
  • Paper Submission Deadline: April 25, 2020
  • Notification of Acceptance: June 08, 2020
  • Camera-Ready Paper: July 06, 2020

All deadlines are 11:59 pm Hawaii Time.

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

  • Paper Submission Deadline: June 22, 2020
  • Notification of Acceptance: July 22, 2020
  • Camera-Ready Paper: August 01, 2020

All deadlines are 11:59 pm Hawaii Time.

Author instructions: Proceedings are planned to be published via CEUR Workshop Proceedings and should follow the guidelines of the Springer LNCS format. The detailed Call for Poster and Demos papers is available online.

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!

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:

  • Proposals WS Deadline: March 23, 2020
  • Notification of Acceptance: April 20, 2020

All deadlines are 11:59 pm Hawaii Time.

Important Dates for Tutorials (and other meetings, e.g. seminars, show-cases, etc., without call for papers):

  • Proposals Tutorial Deadline: May 11, 2020
  • Notification of Acceptance: June 01, 2020

All deadlines are 11:59 pm Hawaii Time.

Special Calls

Special calls or sub-topics are dedicated towards specific topics that are of special interest to the SEMANTiCS community. In case we receive a sufficient amount of high quality submissions these topics will become special tracks within the conference program. For 2020 SEMANTiCS Amsterdam encourages submissions to the following sub-topics:

  • Special Sub-Topic: Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage
  • Special Sub-Topic: LegalTech
  • Special Sub-Topic: Blockchain and Semantics

Each sub-topic is managed by a distinct committee and encourages submissions from the scientific or industrial domain. Scientific submissions will undergo a thorough review process and will be published in the conference proceedings in case of acceptance. Industrial submissions will be evaluated and selected according to the quality criteria of the industry track. We are looking forward to your submissions!
