We are pleased to invite you to contribute to the 20th International
Conference on Semantic Systems 2024 held in Amsterdam, Netherlands, from
17-19 September 2024.

We strongly encourage *early-career female AI researchers*, especially
doctoral students, to attend this year's semantics conference, for which we
are *offering travel grants sponsored by the Artificial Intelligence
Journal <https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/artificial-intelligence/>*
to support their participation.


Since 2005, the annual SEMANTiCS conference has been the meeting place for
researchers, industry experts, and business leaders to discuss the latest
trends and application scenarios in the fields of Knowledge Graphs, Machine
Learning, Data Science, Linked Data, Artificial Intelligence, and Natural
Language Processing.

SEMANTiCS tackles challenges faced by information managers, software
engineers, IT-architects, and various domain experts who are involved in
the development, implementation, and evaluation of semantic software
systems. The SEMANTiCS program offers a diverse range of technical talks,
panel discussions on relevant topics, and contributions from individuals
actively engaged in practical implementation or scholarly research.
Attendees can network with experts in a variety of fields. These
relationships provide great value to organisations as they encounter subtle
technical issues at any stage of implementation. The expertise gained by
SEMANTiCS attendees has a long-term impact on their professional
trajectories and organisational endeavours. These factors make SEMANTiCS
the major outreach event on semantic technologies across Europe, America,
and beyond.

Research and Innovation Track:

The Research and Innovation track at SEMANTiCS 2024 welcomes papers on
novel scientific research and innovations relevant to the Semantic Web,
Semantic Technologies, and semantic-enabled AI. We also welcome submissions
at the intersection between this field and other scientific disciplines.
Submissions should be original and should not have been published elsewhere
in any form or language. Papers must adhere to the instructions given in
the submission guidelines, including references and optional appendices.
Each submission will receive at least three independent reviews and will be
evaluated based on their novelty, technical quality, reproducibility, and
practical significance.

Topics of Interest:

SEMANTiCS 2024 calls for submissions of excellent quality addressing the
following topics in the Semantic Web area, from both theoretical and
practical perspectives.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


   Web Semantics & Linked (Open) Data

   Enterprise Knowledge Graphs, Graph Data Management

   Machine Learning Techniques for/using Knowledge Graphs (e.g.
   reinforcement learning, deep learning, data mining and knowledge discovery)

   Interplay between generative AI and Knowledge Graphs (e.g., RAG approach)

   Knowledge Management (e.g.  acquisition, capture, extraction, authoring,
   integration, publication)

   Terminology, Thesaurus & Ontology Management, Ontology engineering

   Reasoning, Rules, and Policies

   Natural Language Processing for/using Knowledge Graphs (e.g. entity
   linking and resolution using target knowledge such as Wikidata and DBpedia,
   foundation models)

   Crowdsourcing for/using Knowledge Graphs

   Data Quality Management and Assurance

   Mathematical Foundation of Knowledge-aware AI

   Multimodal Knowledge Graphs

   Semantics in Data Science

   Provenance and Data Change Tracking

   Semantic Interoperability (via mapping, crosswalks, standards, etc.)

   Linked Data storage, triple stores, graph databases

   Robust and scalable management, querying and analysis of semantics and

   User interfaces for the Semantic Web & its management

   Explainable and Interoperable AI

   Decentralised and Federated Knowledge Graphs (e.g., Federated querying,
   link traversal)

Application of Semantically-Enriched and AI-Based Approaches, such as, but
not limited to:


   Knowledge Graphs in Bioinformatics, Medical AI, and preventive healthcare

   Clinical Use Case of semantic-enabled AI-based Approaches

   AI for Environmental Challenges
