*** Call for Papers: JIST 2018 Regular Technical Papers ***
JIST2018:The 8th Joint International Semantic Technology Conference
Nov. 26-28, 2018, Awaji City, Hyogo, Japan.
( Paper submission due: 10 August, 2018 )
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
-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
-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 ***
-Abstract submission: 23:59 (Hawaii Time), 3 August, 2018
-Full paper submission: 23:59 (Hawaii Time), 10 August, 2018
-Notification of Acceptance: 14 September, 2018
-Camera-ready Deadline: 28 September, 2018

*** Submission ***
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
in an LNCS proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper must register
for the conference and present the paper there.
Papers can be submitted electronically via EasyChair.
* Please select the corresponding track(s) when you submit your paper(s).
