Re: ODBASE'19 - deadline extended to 25th July

Dear all,

I just agreed with harsh, we will work on something for the next two days... as authors we suggest to takt the authors on the spec.
Let us know whether anybody has still time to chip in and contribute.

@Bert, can you fix in the currently published version the brocken link: -->

the current github version should have that (plus a couple of typos) corrected, if you wait until later tonight - harsh is implementing a couple of minor fixes just now.
Then we should also start advertise the document... I suggest to change the data also to 22 July 2018 and take that as the official publication date of the current draft.

>>>> The conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics for Large Scale Information Systems (ODBASE’19) provides a forum on the use of ontologies, rules and data semantics in novel applications. Of particular relevance to ODBASE are papers that bridge traditional boundaries between disciplines such as artificial intelligence and Semantic Web, databases, data science, data analytics and machine learning, human-computer interaction, social networks, distributed and mobile systems, data and information retrieval, knowledge discovery, and computational linguistics.
>>>> The increasing effectiveness and adoption of data-driven AI technologies into a widening range of applications has thrown a spotlight into the trustworthiness of such AI applications. Such concerns extends beyond those of vendors, deployers and users of an AI, interested in its envelop of performance and reliability, but also wider professional, governmental and civil society stakeholders who are concerned by the potential impact of bias, safety, robustness and liability issues. This concern is amplified by the opaque nature of techniques such as deep machine learning and the ease with which they can be applies over large varieties of datasets and therefore impact is many different areas of life. Key to addressing these concerns therefore is transparency in how data is collected, selected and prepared in training and using AI and how these processes can be governed, not just within organisations, but in concert with external stakeholders. Ontologies and semantic models are powerful techniques for representing, exchanging and controlling the processing of data for AI applications. They can be used to define and monitor integration mappings between data sets that train AI. They can track the provenance and quality assessments of data selected for training AI. They can be use to track and compare the selection of data in different linguistic and societal settings to ensure AI is developed in a fair, unbiased and inclusive manner. They can be used for tracking and explaining the processing of personal data in AI, which is increasingly a requirement for data protection regulation. They can be used to assess the value of datasets and the contributions to that value made by individual stakeholders. They can be use by communities to assemble and share information about applications of AI, to inform approaches to ethical use of AI and thereby establish trust. In all these areas semantic models offer a promising basis for establishing sector-specific or international standards for interoperable data governance in AI applications.
>>>> ODBASE’19 intends to draw a highly diverse body of researchers and practitioners by being part of the Federated conferences Event "On the Move to Meaningful Internet Systems 2019 (OnTheMove'19)" that co-locates three conferences: ODBASE'19, C&TC'19 (International Symposium on Secure Virtual Infrastructures), and CoopIS'19 (International Conference on Cooperative Information Systems).
>>>> Submissions
>>>> ===========
>>>> ODBASE 2019 will consider two categories of papers: research and experience. Authors must clearly state the type of the paper in the abstract. Research papers must contain novel, unpublished research results. Experience papers must describe performance or usability of existing real-world systems, empirical studies, business / industry cases with (proven) solutions / systems for applied technological challenges, and concrete results demonstrating real-world importance and impact; preference will be given to papers that describe software products or systems that are in use in the community and/or the industry.
>>>> Papers submitted to ODBASE’19 must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under review for another workshop or conference.
>>>> All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. All papers will be refereed by at least three members of the program committee, and at least two will be experts from industry in the case of practice reports. All submissions must be in English.
>>>> Submissions must not exceed 18 pages in the final camera-ready paper style. Submissions must be laid out according to the final camera-ready formatting instructions and must be submitted in PDF format.
>>>> Paper submission site:
>>>> The final proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag as LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science). Author instructions can be found at:
