Deadline Extended to June 7! ISWC Workshop - SemWeb for Social Good

For anyone interested in Social Good or the SDGs, this promises to be a

Workshop:     Semantic Web for Social Good (SW4SG)
Conference:  ISWC2018
Call for Submissions:

Extended Submission Deadline:  June 7, 2018  (11:59 PM HAST)
Decisions to Authors: June 27, 2018

Workshop Location:  Monterrey, CA
Workshop Date: October 9, 2018

Workshop Goals:

Many Social Good topics can benefit from the sort of unplanned,
cross-domain, rapid-prototyping analysis that Linked Data makes possible.
We’ve learned that measuring topics like poverty, health, economic
opportunity and equality can be substantially more nuanced by considering
broader categories of data than organizations traditionally collect for
their own use. There have been individual past presentations on topics that
involve Semantic Web for Social Good. This workshop is intended to present
multiple topics, to better identify intersections, overlaps, opportunities
for accelerated advancement, and opportunities for shared abstractions.
 To generate the best discussion on shared domain and cross-domain uses, we
encourage submissions from the full array of Social Good topics.


Because we are looking to promote discussion about an emerging area, our
goal is to be open to new or early stage ideas and work, INCLUDING vision

Please submit  extended abstracts (2 pages), short papers (2 to 5 pages),
posters, or demos.

Written documents should be in PDF format and not anonymized.

Posters should be in PDF, PNG, or GIF.

Demos should be submitted as video in MP4 of no longer than 7 minutes;
demos must be submitted with an abstract or short paper.
