ESWC is a major venue for discussing the latest scientific results and
technology innovations related to the Semantic Web. The 12th edition
of ESWC will take place from May 31st to June 4th 2015 in Portoroz,
Slovenia. Besides a main focus on advances in Semantic Web research
and technologies, ESWC 2015 is seeking to broaden its attention to
span other relevant research areas. In 2015, ESWC will complement its
Semantic Web topics with new tracks that focus on linking machine and
human computation at Web scale.

The goal of the Semantic Web is to create a Web of knowledge and
services in which the semantics of content is made explicit and
content is linked to both other content and services. This arrangement
of knowledge-based functionalities is weaving together a large network
of human knowledge, and making this knowledge machine-processable to
support intelligent behaviour by machines. Additionally, it supports
novel applications allowing content from heterogeneous sources to be
combined in unforeseen ways and support enhanced matching between
users’ needs, software functionalities and online content.

Human-centered aspects play an important role in Semantic Web
research. Human cognition, for example, has inspired several Semantic
Web techniques and many Semantic Web tools aim to support cognitive
processes. Moreover, although much can be achieved with intelligent
algorithms, humans still play a key role in the entire lifecycle of
the Semantic Web. To support research activities, humans produce
training data, they test the output of Semantic Web algorithms and
evaluate the usability of the created tools. During the deployment of
Semantic Web technologies knowledge engineers and domain experts build
ontologies and vocabularies while annotators create semantic
annotations and links between datasets, etc. Human Computation and
Crowdsourcing methods provide convenient approaches for gathering
research data, testing, as well as supporting Semantic Web deployment
in practice. As such, they are increasingly used not only to ease the
human contributor bottleneck in research and deployment, but also to
design a new kind of applications where human capabilities are part of
computational process.

Creating an interlinked Web of knowledge which bridges between
heterogeneous content and services requires collaboration between
several computer science domains. Also, the hybrid space that the Web
has become, where humans and software interact in a complex manner,
fundamentally requires an interdisciplinary approach to find novel
solutions to the problems generated.

ESWC 2015 will feature eleven thematic research tracks (see below) and
an in-use and industrial track. Submissions of interdisciplinary
research papers, covering more than one thematic track, are also
encouraged. In addition, the in-use and industrial track will provide
an opportunity for dialogue and discussion on industrial applications,
tools, deployment experiences, case studies and usage analysis. We
therefore encourage submissions addressing several conference research
topics. However, each paper should be associated with at least one of
the topics of the conference. The main research topics this year are:
* Vocabularies, Schemas, Ontologies;
* Reasoning;
* Linked Open Data;
* Social Web and Web Science;
* Data Management, Big data, Scalability;
* Natural Language Processing and Information Retrieval;
* Machine Learning;
* Mobile Web, Sensors and Semantic Streams;
* Services, APIs, Processes, and Cloud Computing.

In line with this year’s special theme on Human-centered Aspects of
the Semantic Web, we particularly encourage submissions to two special
* Cognition and Semantic Web;
* Human Computation and Crowdsourcing.

*Submission Information*
ESWC 2015 welcomes the submission of original research and application
papers dealing with all aspects of representing and using semantics on
the Web. We encourage theoretical, methodological, empirical, and
applications papers. Submitted papers should describe original work,
present significant results, and provide rigorous, principled, and
repeatable evaluation. We strongly encourage and appreciate the
submission of papers incorporating links to data sets and other
material used for evaluation as well as to live demos and software
source code. ESWC 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
proceedings of this conference will be published in Springer's Lecture
Notes in Computer Science series.

Papers should not exceed fifteen (15) pages in length and must be
formatted according to the guidelines for LNCS authors. Papers must be
submitted in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) format. Papers
that exceed 15 pages or do not follow the LNCS guidelines will be
automatically rejected without a review. Each paper will be submitted
in two steps: an abstract first and the full paper two days later. The
abstract submission is compulsory for every full paper submitted.
Abstracts alone will not be reviewed and only fully submitted papers
will be considered. Authors of accepted papers will be required to
provide semantic annotations for the abstract of their submission -
details of this process will be given on the conference Web page at
the time of acceptance. At least one author of each accepted paper
must register for the conference. More information about the
Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) are available on
the Springer LNCS Web site.

Submissions and reviewing will be supported by the EasyChair system:
