===============================================================================

SCOPE

The future e-Society is an e-inclusive society based on the extensive 
use of
digital technologies at all levels of interaction between its members. 
It is a
society that evolves based on knowledge and that empowers individuals by
creating virtual communities that benefit from social inclusion, access 
to
information, enhanced participation, interaction and freedom of 
expression,
among other. This leads to radical changes in the dynamics and the 
interaction
between its members, determining new economic scenarios.

In this context, the role of the World Wide Web and generally of 
information
and communication technology (ICT) in the way people and organisations 
exchange
information and interact in the social cyberspace is crucial. Large 
amounts of
structured data - Big (Open) Data - are being generated, published and 
shared
and a growing number of services and applications emerge from it.

The structured data that are being published - e.g. as RDF on the Web of 
Data
- is the result of current popular initiatives adopted by a growing 
number of actors
from transversal domains (e.g. governments, city municipalities, etc.).
Making sense of these data by producing services and applications for 
end-user
consumption from government and public body data is presently a huge 
challenge
for the research community, going towards a Value Web. On the other 
hand, from
a business perspective, the (dynamic) composition of services using Big
Structured Data is an important market stimulator.

These initiatives take into account methods for the creation, storage 
and
consumption of increasing amounts of structured data and tools that make
possible their application by end-users to real-life situations, as well 
as
their evaluation. The final aim is to lower the barrier between 
end-users and
ICT through contributions to the e-Society. These include multilingual
information, information visualisation, privacy and trust, rich 
multimedia
retrieval, personalized services, etc.

Applications must enable people to use their knowledge at best and 
generate new
knowledge in return, while keeping intact their privacy and 
confidentiality,
whether it is in e-Culture, e-Government, e-Democracy, e-Health, or in 
other
areas of the e-Society. Societal, ethics and policy aspects are also to 
be
taken into consideration when empowering and designing ICT solutions.

The 7th edition of the Meta4eS workshop aims at bringing together 
researchers,
  professionals and experts interested to discuss, demonstrate and share 
best
practices, ideas and results around the creation, management and, 
particularly,
consumption of structured data for the e-Society. The focus will be both 
on
scientific and technological research and on industrial use cases from 
various
application domains.


TOPICS OF INTEREST

This year, Meta4eS has a special focus on cross-disciplinary communities 
and
applications associated with Big Data in any possible domain (e.g., 
Culture,
Smart Manufacturing and Production, Smart City and Digital City, Health,
Government and Public Sector, Environmental and Geo-Spatial, Ambient 
Assisted
Living, Energy, Social Media, Online Communications and Marketing) and 
their
impact on the e-Society.

Topics related to methods, tools and applications for the Big Data Value 
Chain
for the e-Society and their evaluation are of interest. These include 
(but are
not limited to) best practices, case studies and tendencies related to:

	* Big Data for Cross-disciplinary Communities
	* Societal Impacts of Big Data
	* Research Roadmapping based on Societal Externalities of Big Data
	* Big Data Value Chain in e-Society
	* (Semantic) Data Licensing
	* Smart Data, Linked Data, schema.org
	* Data Visualisation Tools for e-society
	* Knowledge Creation, Sharing and Retrieval for e-Society
	* Knowledge Evolution from Social Processes
	* Use of Natural Language Resources in the Creation and Consumption of
	  Structured Data
	* Exploiting Multilingual Terminology for Structured Data Consumption
	* Best Practices in Consuming Big Structured Data for e-Society
	* Lightweight Ontology Creation Methodologies for e-Society
	* Ontology in Use for e-Society Applications with a Focus on Crossing
	  the Boundaries of Multiple Communities and Disciplines
	* Semantic Information Processing for Interpretation and Better
	  Understanding our Society
	* Service Composition for e-Society
	* Security, Privacy and Trust in Consuming Big Structured Data
	* Evaluation Methodologies
	* End-user experience with Big (Open) Data
	* Research Projects and Live Demos regarding Applications of Big
	  Structured Data for e-Society



IMPORTANT DATES

	* Paper Submission Deadline: 25 July 2018
	* Acceptance Notification: 20 August 2018
	* Camera Ready Due: 30 August 2018 (firm deadline)
	* Registration Due: 30 August 2018 (firm deadline)
	* OTM Conferences and Workshops: 22-26 October 2018
	* Second Camera Ready Upload (optional): 1st December 2018



SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Submitted papers will be refereed by at least three members of the 
workshop
Program Committee, based on originality, significance, technical 
soundness and
clarity of expression. Submissions must be in English and are of two 
types:
full papers and short papers. Full papers should not exceed 10 pages in 
the
final camera-ready format. Short papers, of at most 5 pages in the final 
camera
-ready format, may relate to a software tool demonstration, describe a 
small
case study, or explore preliminary ideas about a relevant topic. Papers 
should
be formatted according to the Springer Verlag LNCS style and submitted 
in PDF
format. Author instructions can be found at:
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.

Paper submission site: 
http://www.otmconferences.org/index.php/paper-submission


Papers, demos and posters presenting ongoing studies relevant to the 
workshop's
topics are encouraged for submission.

Accepted workshop papers (full papers and short papers) will be 
published by
Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) in the OTM 2018 post-
conference Workshop Proceedings. Papers published in these Proceedings 
will be
indexed by ISI, ACM Digital Library, DBLP and Google Scholar. The 
deadline for
the upload of an accepted Draft camera ready (CR) version and of the 
copyright
form is 30 August 2018. However, for all accepted workshop papers there 
is an
additional (optional) Final CR upload deadline on 1st December 2018, 
allowing
authors to correct and improve their submissions based on their 
participation
in the OnTheMove event. Final CR papers must respect the original 
copyright
form (only submitted once) by title, authors and content.


Failure to commit to presentation at the workshop automatically excludes 
a
paper from the post-conference Workshop Proceedings.
