CALL FOR PAPERS

Workshop on Blockchain enabled Semantic Web (BlockSW @ ISWC 2019)

Co-located with the 18th International Conference on Semantic Web (ISWC

========

Blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) are two emerging technologies
with the potential to contribute to semantic web efforts. Blockchains have
been used for applications such decentralized finance in such a way that
establishes trust without a central authority. Artificial Intelligence has
been used for decision making, requiring vast amounts of data affected by
privacy and trust requirements. To address these overlapping themes, the
BlockSW workshop is open to submissions at the intersection of blockchain,
semantic web and AI.

Topics of this workshop include (but not limited to) the following:
- Blockchain enabled Semantic Web and AI scenarios and applications
- Semantic models for forensics, defenses, and countermeasures on blockchain
platforms
- Blockchain enabled Semantic Web and AI scenarios and applications
- Semantic queries and analytics on Blockchains
- Semantic smart contracts
- Blockchain trust verification models, distributed trust semantics, and
integrity proofs for - distributed trust graphs
- Anonymity and privacy issues among blockchain participants
- Semantic models for legal, ethical, and societal aspects of blockchains
applications
- Semantics and blockchain governance
- Blockchain data provenance
- Semantic data mining and knowledge discovery on blockchains
- Social aspects of Blockchains and social networking
