CFP: 2nd Workshop on Semantic Web Enterprise Adoption and Best Practice (WaSABi) @ ESWC2014

[Apologies for cross-posting]

for the 2nd Workshop on

(WaSABi 2014)
May 26th, 2014 - Anissaras/Hersonissou, Crete, Greece
*** Paper submission deadline: March 14th, 2014 ***

In recent years Semantic Web based systems, applications and tools have 
shown significant improvement. Their increased deployment indicates a 
steady maturing of semantic technologies and demonstrates their value in 
solving current and emerging problems. Though the number of enterprises 
working on and with these technologies is dwarfed by the number who have 
not yet adopted semantic technologies. Possible reasons for this include 
lack of well known enterprise use cases and market dynamics in academia 
on the one hand, and lack of easy to use standard architectures, 
frameworks, and system design patterns on the other hand.

The goal for the Workshop on Semantic Web Enterprise Adoption and Best 
Practice is to foster adoption of Semantic Web technologies by helping 
to further bridge the gap between industry and academia. Topics for 
presentation and discussion at the workshop include technical and 
usage-oriented issues. The workshop aims to cover all matters that help 
in shortening development and deployment time for an academic or a 
practitioner wishing to work with semantic technologies.

Authors are invited to consider the following (non exhaustive) list of topics:

* The current state of Semantic Web technology usage in enterprise
* Known enterprise challenges and matching Semantic Web technology solutions
* Business workflows and processes integrating Semantic Web technologies
* System development methodologies as applied to Semantic Web technologies
* Semantic Web toolkits or frameworks for enterprise applications
* Lessons learned and good practices identified from Semantic Web implementation projects
* Architectures and design patterns for Semantic Web in enterprise systems
* Semantic Big Data solutions addressing Volume, Velocity, Variety, and Veracity
* Linked Data integration and change management
* Comparative or benchmarking studies of tools, methods, and algorithms in enterprise environments

Papers that focus on uptake surveys, case studies, and new approaches, architectures, or tools demonstrating best practices in Semantic Web technologies are particularly encouraged.

Submission criteria are as follows:

* Papers must adhere to the LNCS format guidelines (
* Papers are limited to eight pages (including figures, tables and appendices).
* Papers are submitted in PDF format via EasyChair ( 

Accepted authors are given a presentation time slot of 15 minutes, with 5 minutes Q&A.

All accepted papers will be included in the WaSABi 2014 proceedings, to be published online via CEUR-WS.

All deadlines are unless otherwise stated 23:59 Hawaii time.
