Longer version

Search engines such as Google, Bing and intelligent assistants such as IBM
Watson, Siri and Cortana have demonstrated tremendous benefits to users
from consuming data from the knowledge graphs. There are several well-known
knowledge graphs such as DBpedia, Wikidata and Schema.org in the consumer
space, but very little attention has been given to knowledge graphs in
non-consumer space. One such key area where more and more applications are
making use of the structured data in the form of knowledge graphs is in the
Industrial businesses such as manufacturing, oil and gas, power, aviation
and mining. Industrial knowledge graphs can play an important role in
creating Artificial Intelligence applications in the Industrial space.
There is less focus on such Industrial knowledge graphs in the main track
of research conferences. Our goal is to use this workshop as an ideal
platform to bridge this gap and bring together researchers and
practitioners in the areas of Web Science, knowledge graphs along with
Industry subject matter experts.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

Creation of Industrial knowledge graphs (including handling noisy and
incomplete information)
Curation of Industrial knowledge graphs (including collaborative
maintenance of knowledge graphs)
Innovative methods for Industrial experts to query knowledge graphs
Innovative methods for Industrial experts to interact with knowledge graphs
(e.g., chatbots, voice interfaces)
Applications of Industrial knowledge graphs
Tools for Industrial experts to populate knowledge graphs
Similarities and differences with consumer knowledge graphs such as Google
knowledge graph, DBpedia etc.
Access control mechanisms for Industrial knowledge graphs
Other topics such as reasoning, scalability, privacy etc. as applicable in
an Industrial setting
Unique challenges faced with and opportunities presented by Industrial
knowledge graphs

*** We also encourage submissions related to other types of non-consumer
knowledge graphs such as government and enterprise ***
