Description: 
The International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems promotes a knowledge transfer channel where academics, practitioners and researchers can discuss, analyze, criticize, synthesize, communicate, elaborate, and simplify the promising vision of the Semantic Web in the context of information systems. IJSWIS establishes value-adding knowledge transfer and personal development channels in three distinctive areas: academia, industry, and government.


Submissions:
Interested contributors are asked to submit their manuscripts as an email attachment in Microsoft Word or RTF (Rich Text Format) to mdl@eltrun.gr <mailto:mdl@eltrun.gr> or lytras@ceid.upatras.gr <mailto:lytras@ceid.upatras.gr>.
