Conference Call for Papers

The International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) is the premier venue for presenting fundamental research, innovative technology, and applications concerning semantics, data, and the Web. It is the most important international venue to discuss and present latest advances and applications of the semantic Web, knowledge graphs, linked data, ontologies and artificial intelligence (AI) on the Web.

Become part of ISWC 2020 by submitting to the following tracks & activities or just attend them!
(All deadlines are midnight Hawaii time.)

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 2020, 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 the 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 reviewing criteria. We also strongly encourage papers that provide links to the data sets, source code and queries used to evaluate their approach, and/or live deployments.

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

After a successful first edition, the ISWC Reproducibility Initiative is running for the second time at ISWC2020. The Reproducibility Initiative is open to the accepted papers of the ISWC Research Track that have some significant experimental results that are amenable to be reproducible.

Before submitting to the research track, authors are asked to consult the calls of the other tracks featured at ISWC 2020 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

We encourage papers that directly contribute to the advancement of the Semantic Web area. Topics include, but are not limited to:

Databases and Ontology-based data access, integration and exchange on the Web
Information retrieval and semantic analysis
Semantic approaches in and for Information Extraction
Knowledge Driven NLP
Artificial intelligence techniques (e.g. planning, game theory) for the Semantic Web
Multi-agent and autonomous systems
Knowledge representation and reasoning
Knowledge graphs (e.g. construction, maintenance, reasoning) and virtual knowledge graphs
Machine learning and data mining methods for Semantic Web data, ontology induction and discovery in Linked data
Data mining and knowledge Knowledge-driven ML and data mining
Ontology based neural symbolic reasoning and learning
Robust and scalable management of semantics and data
Processing and storage of semantic data on the blockchain
Methods to investigate and catalogue semantic primitives used in ontology definitions
Multi-modal and multi-lingual access
Multi-modal semantic reasoning
Programming the Semantic Web
Architectures and algorithms for extreme volume, heterogeneity, dynamicity, and decentralization
Cleaning, quality assurance, and provenance of Semantic Web data, services, and processes
Ontology engineering and ontology patterns
Ontology modularity, mapping, merging, and alignment
Search, Query, Integration and Analysis on the Semantic Web and Knowledge Graphs
Question answering and dialogues over Linked Data, Ontologies and Knowledge Graphs
Information visualization and exploratory analysis methods
Semantic social network mining, analysis, representation, and management
Crowdsourcing semantics; methods, dynamics, and challenges
Geospatial semantics and data
Data streams, Internet of Things, mobile platforms, cloud environment
Trust, privacy, and security

Review Criteria

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

Relevance and impact of the research contributions
Rigour and reproducibility of the evaluation of the work
Clarity and quality of presentation
Grounding in the literature

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