Deadline Approaching In-Use Track


The 13th International Semantic Web Conference


19-23 October 2014, Riva del Garda, Trento, Italy


Semantic technologies and Linked Data are increasingly a major component of
deployed applications. The In-Use track at ISWC 2014 provides a forum for
the community to explore the benefits and challenges of applying semantic
technologies and data in real-life applications and contexts ranging from
industry to government and science. Importantly, we encourage submissions
that combine any form of semantic technologies and the Web, for example,
submissions that demonstrate how Web data can be used with techniques such
as statistical data mining, machine learning, or NLP in applications.

Papers for the ISWC In-Use track should provide evidence that there is
actual use (or at least plans for deployment) outside the research group
that conducted the research.
Submissions to this track may employ scientific methods (qualitative and/or
quantitative) to understand in greater detail the deployment of semantic
technologies and data (online or offline) or present novel practical
approaches that are relevant to the deployment of semantics, but may not
otherwise gain an outlet in the ISWC series. Papers will be evaluated on
how the use of semantic technologies impacts and provides utility to a wide
range of users. Papers presenting Semantic Web tools should clearly
describe the addressed problem and demonstrate the use of the tool in
practice, for instance, by providing quantitative data on the use in a
specific domain.
Besides this, tool papers should also include a convincing evaluation of
the system and/or methods involved.

Accepted papers will be distributed to conference attendees and also
published by Springer in the printed conference proceedings. At least one
author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present
the paper there.


We invite the submission of original papers organized around some of the
following aspects:

  * Description and analysis of concrete problems and user requirements for
applying semantic technologies in a specific domain
  * Description of implementation and use of semantic applications in a
specific domain
  * Analysis and evaluation of usability and uptake of Semantic Web tools
and technologies
  * Assessment of the pros and cons of using semantic technologies to solve
a particular and practical problem
  * Pragmatics of using or deploying semantic technologies in real-world
  * Comparison of semantic technologies with alternative approaches that
use conventional or competing technologies
  * Learned lessons and best practices from deploying and using an
application or service based on Semantic Web technologies
  * Assessment of costs and benefits of implementing, deploying, using, and
managing Semantic Web technologies
  * Analysis of risks and opportunities of using Semantic Web technologies
in organizations with respect to their businesses and customers
  * Descriptions of alternative semantic technologies being deployed in
  * Description of Semantic Web ontologies and/or datasets that are being
widely used in practice
  * Mobile apps based on semantic technologies

The Semantic Web In-use papers will be evaluated on their relevance to the
track, rigor in the methodology and analysis used to reach conclusions,
originality, readability, and usefulness to developers, researchers, and


Pre-submission of abstracts is a strict requirement. All papers and
abstracts have to be submitted electronically via the EasyChair conference
submission system
All research submissions must be in English, and no longer than 16 pages.
Papers that exceed this limit will be rejected without review. Submissions
must be in PDF formatted in the style of the Springer Publications format
for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). For details on the LNCS
style, see Springer's Author Instructions (
ISWC-2014 submissions are not anonymous.

Authors of accepted papers will be required to provide semantic annotations
for the abstract of their submission, which will be made available on the
conference website. Details will be provided at the time of acceptance.

Accepted papers will be distributed to conference attendees and also
published by Springer in the printed conference proceedings, as part of the
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.  At least one author of each
accepted paper must register for the conference and present the  paper


ISWC 2014 will not accept research papers that, at the time of submission,
are under review for or have already been published in or accepted for
publication in a journal or another conference.
The conference organizers may share information on submissions with other
venues to ensure that this rule is not violated.
