Become part of ISWC 2019 by submitting to the following tracks & activities
or just attend them!

*** All deadlines are midnight Hawaii Time (GMT-10) ***

In this announcement:
*  Highlights
1. Call for Research papers
2. Call for In-use papers
3. Call for Resource papers

*  Highlights
* Research track: papers submitted to the research track will be subject to
**double blind** peer review.
* Research, In-use and Resource tracks: submission of the same work to
multiple tracks is not allowed and may result in a rejection of the work
across all tracks without a review. Before submitting, authors are asked to
consult the calls of the other tracks featured at ISWC 2019 and to choose
the track that best suits their contribution. Please consult the following
page as well when deciding to which track to submit:
 * Research track: a reproducibility certification with a dedicated review
board will be proposed to the accepted research track papers that include a
significant experimental evaluation.

1. Call for Research papers
In this track of ISWC 2019, we are looking for novel and significant
research contributions addressing theoretical, analytical and empirical
aspects of the Semantic Web. While we welcome work that relates to the W3C
Semantic Web recommendations (e.g., RDF, OWL, SPARQL, etc.), we also
encourage contributions to research at the intersection of Semantic Web and
other scientific disciplines. Submissions to the research track should
describe original, significant, and replicable research on the Semantic
Web. All papers must include method evaluations that are rigorous,
repeatable and reproducible. This will be one of the key paper reviewing
criteria. We also strongly encourage papers that provide material such as
data sets, source code, queries used to evaluate their approach, and/or
live deployments. To comply with the double blind review policy we
encourage the usage of non-personal storage spaces or the  additional
material facility available at submission time.

2. Call for In-use papers

The adoption of Semantic Web technologies has accelerated in recent years,
where they are now deployed in a variety of real-world settings at a
variety of scales. The In-Use Track at ISWC 2019 continues the tradition of
demonstrating and learning from the increasing adoption of Semantic Web
technologies by providing a forum for the community to explore the benefits
and challenges of applying such technologies in concrete, practical use
cases, beyond the research communities from which they originate, in
contexts ranging from industry to government and science.

The In-Use Track thus seeks submissions describing applied and validated
solutions such as software tools, systems or architectures that benefit
from the use of Semantic Web technologies (including, but not limited to,
technologies based on the Semantic Web standards). Importantly, submitted
papers should provide convincing evidence of the use of the proposed
application or tool by the target user group, preferably outside the group
that conducted the development and, more broadly, outside the Semantic Web
research community. A main focus of the submissions should be on the
benefits of Semantic Web technologies for the intended use case, as well as
(if relevant) the added challenges they introduce.

3. Call for Resource papers
Resources are of paramount importance as they foster scientific
advancement. For example, the DBpedia resource had a major influence on the
Semantic Web community by enabling the Linked (Open) Data movement.
Validating a research hypothesis or providing answers to a research
question often goes together with developing new resources that support
these achievements. Sharing resources is key to allow other researchers to
compare new results, reproduce experimental settings and explore new lines
of research, in accordance with the FAIR principles for scientific data
management. Yet, resources themselves rarely get the same recognition as
the scientific advances they facilitate.

The ISWC 2019 Resources Track aims to promote the sharing of resources
including, but not restricted to: datasets, ontologies/vocabularies,
ontology design patterns, evaluation benchmarks or methods, software
tools/services, APIs and software frameworks, workflows, crowdsourcing task
designs, protocols, methodologies and metrics, that contribute to the
generation of novel scientific work. In particular, we encourage the
sharing of such resources following best practices within the Semantic Web
community. This track calls for contributions that provide a concise and
clear description of a resource and its usage.
