CFP: Journal of Web Semantics - Industry and In-Use Applications

                            JOURNAL OF WEB SEMANTICS
                                CALL FOR PAPERS



The  Journal of  Web Semantics  seeks submissions  for a  special  issue on
industry/in-use  applications  to be  edited  by  Achille Fokoue,  Thorsten
Liebig, and Padmashree Ravindra.

Submissions are due by October 14, 2016.

As the Semantic  Web and Linked Data have matured over  the past decade, we
have witnessed the growth and  deployment of a variety of applications that
exploit  Semantic  Web  technologies  and  standards  to  solve  customers’
problems  in novel  ways:  from semantic  search  on the  Web and  question
answering  systems  leveraging  large  knowledge graphs  to  informatgion
integration and predictive analytics in  domains as diverse as healthcare &
life sciences and smart  cities.  These applications have tested, stressed,
and imposed  real-world constraints on semantic  technologies.  First, they
have imposed  significant scalability requirements on  Semantic Web systems
such as  knowledge graph stores,  reasoners, etc.  Second, given  the sheer
size and  decentralized nature  of the Semantic  Web and Linked  Data, they
have  magnified  data  integration  challenges,  which  were  traditionally
limited to integration across a  few sources, to practical data integration
at Web scale.

The goal  of this special issue is  to provide a venue  for researchers and
practitioners to share their experience in designing, developing, deploying
and   evaluating  applications   and  solutions   that   leverage  semantic
technologies and  standards to achieve  practical benefit.  In  addition to
submissions  addressing  traditional  challenges  of scalability  and  data
integration, we  also encourage  submissions focused on  tooling supporting
Semantic Web application development and deployment, concrete use cases and
case studies.  Specifically, we expect  submissions on, but  not restricted
to, the following topics with an emphasis on how semantic technologies were
uniquely able to  tackle application requirements and users’  needs:

   * Case  studies and use  cases for  solutions and  applications 
     semantic technologies
   * Foundations, methods,  tools and technologies  for facilitating 
     Web application development and deployment
   * Exploitation of large scale knowledge graphs
   * Applications  and solutions using  data mining  and machine 
learning on
     Linked Data.
   * In-use Ontology and domain modeling

In particular, applications not  specifically concerned with the (semantic)
web are also relevant as long as they exploit semantic technologies.
