2nd CfP JWS special issue on Benchmarking Semantic Web Solutions : 31st August 2019

(Apologies for multiple postings)

** Special Issue of the JWS on Benchmarking Semantic Web Solutions **

** Call for Papers **

The availability of benchmarks is often regarded as a prerequisite for sustainable developments in quantitative research. From a practical perspective, the cost and effort required for introducing Semantic Web and Linked Data technology is significant. A key step towards abolishing the barriers to the adoption and deployment of this technology is to provide open benchmarking reports that allow users to assess the fitness of existing solutions for their purposes.

In this special issue, we hence welcome articles (1) proposing benchmarks and related platforms, and/or (2) performing a throughout evaluation of Semantic Web solutions. A focus of the special issue will be scalability and reproducibility. The target topics of the benchmark/evaluation include (but are not limited to):

Knowledge extraction
Named entity recognition
Relation extraction
Open and closed knowledge extraction
Link discovery and prediction
Linking at scale
Linking for dedicated data types (e.g., geospatial data)
Knowledge curation and fact checking
Ontology alignment
Alignment discovery
Alignment repair
Complex ontology alignment
Tabular data to knowledge graph matching
Cell to KG entity matching
Column to KG semantic type
Relation discovery among table columns
KG population
OWL reasoning
Entailment checking
Class satisfiability
Ontology satisfiability
Query answering
Knowledge graph completion
Semantic embeddings
Quality of embeddings
Ontology Based Data Access
Relational schema to ontology alignment
