First Call for Industry Track


The 13th International Semantic Web Conference


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


Research in Semantic Web Technologies is now underway for more than a
decade; applications are piloted and/or put into production not only
by early adopters, but starting to infiltrate mainstream. One of the
challenges of the Semantic Web is now to reach further mainstream
markets and sustain its success. Additionally, because Semantic
Technologies often deliver backend solutions, not visible from the
outside, it is not always easy to recognize their industrial uptake.
The objective of this track is to provide visibility of Semantic Web
technology used in industrial applications, not in prototypes. Apart
from prominent flagship application domains like Linked Data on the
Web, Semantic Web techniques can be used in many industries as a
horizontal technology (utilities, media, telecommunications,
healthcare, life sciences, governments, intelligence, etc, etc) as
well as in different application areas (business intelligence, search,
big data, open data, knowledge management, recommendation systems,
social media analytics, knowledge discovery, software and systems
integration, etc).

In this track, we would like to see the Semantic Web in action beyond
academic prototypes: How are Semantic technologies being used by
mainstream or in exciting niche markets? What is your success story?
Where do you see the biggest opportunity for Semantic Technologies in
your business/industry? Come and join us at the ISWC2014 industry
track to share your experience!


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  * Applications of Semantic Web technologies in specific industrial
domains (automotive, financial, healthcare and life sciences, energy
industry, etc.)
  * Successful Application domains:, Knowledge Management, IT
Integration, Search, Customer care, Business Intelligence, Social
Media analytics, etc.
  * Applications of Semantic Web technologies in community and
governmental services
  * Industrial trends related to the usage of Linked Data, Open Data
and Semantic Web technologies
  * Financial and strategic investments in Linked Data and Semantic
Web technologies

Successful submissions to this track will emphasize:

  * real-world deployment experiences and strategic decision-making
related to Linked Data and Semantic Web technologies
  * success stories from the deployment of Semantic Web technologies
  * concrete lessons learned from these experiences
  * areas where further research (or research in novel directions) is required
  * expressions of interest and outlines of potential future
applications of SW in industry


We are receiving submissions in the form of 1-2 page (A4/Letter)
abstracts in HTML or PDF format. Each abstract should describe the
content of the proposed talk, which should be of a technical or
strategic nature (i.e. purely marketing/promotional material will not
be accepted). Particularly - fitting the above-mentioned topics - we
encourage the following two categories of submissions:

  * Success stories of business-relevant, industrial deployments of
Semantic Web technologies
  * Position statements that outlines of potential strategic
applications of Semantic Web technologies

Submissions should be made via the online submission system available
at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iswc2014industrytrac
and will be reviewed by a panel of Semantic Web practitioners from
industry and academia. Accepted submissions will be offered a
presentation slot at the conference. At least one author of each
accepted submission is expected to attend the conference and present
the material outlined in the abstract. Presentation slots are expected
to last ~30 minutes, including questions.

Please note that metadata about all successful submissions will by
default be included in the conference metadata corpus and made
publicly available at http://data.semanticweb.org.

Detailed information will be provided with the acceptance notification
(with an opt-out option, e.g. if you don’t want to be named for
competitive reasons).


The industry track at the conference will include

  * a dedicated industry keynote
  * Panels/round tables bringing together both industry and researchers
  * Flashlight presentations for position papers in a separate session
  * Success stories as full presentations (mixed with other tracks of
the conference)
  * opportunities for networking


A journal special issue on industrial applications of Semantic Web
Technologies is planned as a follow-up to the track, where selected
contributions will be invited.


  * Submission: July 10, 2014
  * Notifications: July 31, 2014

All deadlines are Hawaii time.
