The mission of the Joint International Semantic Technology Conference (JIST)

is to bring together researchers in the Semantic Technology research

community and other areas of semantic-related technologies to present their

innovative research results or novel applications of semantic technologies.

There are two tracks in JIST 2018 for Regular Technical Papers.

*** Research Track ***

JIST 2018 research track solicits submissions of original research work on

semantic technologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-Ontology and reasoning

-Knowledge Graphs

-Big Data and semantics, exchange and integration

-Data streams and the Internet of Things

-Machine learning and information extraction on the Semantic Web

-Semantic Web services and processes

-Trust, privacy, and security on the Semantic Web

-Social Semantic Web

-Natural language processing and semantics

-Semantic multimedia

-Novel applications of semantic technologies

*** Special Session Track ***

JIST 2018 special session track to discover and implement special topics

that researchers in Semantic Technology are particularly interested in.

We also intend to facilitate participation of potentially-related researchers

in the JIST conference.

Topics of special sessions are as follows:

– Special Session on Government Open Data


– Special Session on Question Answering and ChatBots


– Special Session on Resource-aware Semantic Technologies


– Special Session on Semantic Web for Life Sciences


*** Important Dates ***

Submissions to JIST 2018 should describe original, significant research on

semantic technologies. JIST 2018 will not accept submissions that are under

review for or have already been published in or accepted for publication in

a journal or another conference.

Submissions to JIST 2018 are expected to present their claimed contribution,

with clear evidence to support their claims.

All submissions will be critically reviewed by at least three members of the

program committee of either research track or special session track.

To assess submissions, reviewers will judge their relevance to semantic

technologies, their originality, the technical soundness of their proposed

approach and the readability of the submission.

JIST 2018 submissions are not anonymous.

Submissions must be in PDF format, using the style of the Springer Publications

format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

Regular paper submissions must be no longer than 16 pages, and short paper

submissions must be no longer than 8 pages.

Submissions that exceed this limit may be rejected without review.

Accepted papers of both research track and special session track will be published
