*1st International Workshop on Summarizing and Presenting Entities and
Ontologies *
co-located with the 12th Extended Semantic Web Conference, June 1, 2015,
Portorož, Slovenia



The Open Data and Semantic Web efforts have been promoting and facilitating
the publication and integration of data from diverse sources, giving rise
to a large and increasing volume of machine-readable data available on the
Web. Even though such raw data and its ontological schema enable the
interoperability among Web applications, problems arise when exposing them
to human users, as to how to present such large-scale, structured data in a
user-friendly manner. To meet the challenge, we invite research
contributions on all aspects of ranking, summarization, visualization, and
exploration of entities, ontologies, knowledge bases and Web Data, with a
particular focus on their summarization and presentation. We also welcome
submissions on novel applications of these techniques. The workshop is
expected to be a forum that brings together researchers and practitioners
from both academia and industry in the areas of Semantic Web, information
retrieval, data engineering, and human-computer interaction, to discuss
high-quality research and emerging applications, to exchange ideas and
experience, and to identify new opportunities for collaboration.


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

1) Ranking and summarizing entities, ontologies, knowledge bases and Web
  * Entity ranking, summarization, and search
  * Task and context-specific entity summarization
  * Summarization of graphs and knowledge bases
  * Ontology ranking, summarization, modularization, and search
  * Fact ranking, retrieval, and question answering over the Web
  * Evaluation of ranking and summarization methods
2) Visualizing and exploring entities, ontologies, knowledge bases and Web
  * Verbalizing and visualizing entity-centric data
  * Ontology visualization and exploration
  * Navigation, faceted browsing, and exploratory search
  * Entity/link/ontology recommendation
  * Novel presentation methods and interaction paradigms for knowledge
bases and Web data
  * User studies with visualization and exploration methods
3) Novel applications of the above techniques


* Submission deadline: March 16, 2015 (23:59 Hawaii Time)
* Notifications: April 3, 2015 (23:59 Hawaii Time)
* Camera-ready version: April 17, 2015 (23:59 Hawaii Time)
* Workshop day: June 1, 2015


We seek the following kinds of submissions:
* Full research papers: up to 12 pages in Springer LNCS format
* Short research/in-use/demo papers: up to 5 pages in Springer LNCS format
* Pitch notes (novel/original ideas): up to 2 pages in Springer LNCS format

Papers should be submitted in EasyChair:

Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop and included in a volume
of the CEUR workshop proceedings. Best papers will be included in the
supplementary proceedings of ESWC 2015, and their extended versions will be
recommended to the International Journal on Semantic Web and Information
Systems (IJSWIS). At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to
register for the workshop and attend to present the paper.
