18th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2019)
“Knowledge Graphs, Linked Data, Linked Schemas and AI on the Web”
Auckland, New Zealand, 26-30 October, 2019

The International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC) is the premier venue for
presenting fundamental research, innovative technology, and applications
concerning semantics, data, and the Web. It is the most important
international venue to discuss and present latest advances and applications
of the semantic Web, knowledge graphs, linked data, ontologies and
artificial intelligence (AI) on the Web.

ISWC attracts a large number of high quality submissions every year and
participants from both industry and academia. ISWC brings together
researchers from different areas, such as artificial intelligence,
databases, natural language processing, information systems, human computer
interaction, information retrieval, web science, etc., who investigate,
develop and use novel methods and technologies for accessing, interpreting
and using information on the Web in a more effective way.

1. Call for contributions - Minute Madness
The Minute Madness is a tradition at the International Semantic Web
Conference that started back in 2011. It has always been an entertaining
session that provides conference participants with a quick and fun overview
of the presented works at the conference.

This year’s ISWC will feature for the first time a stand-alone Minute
Madness Call. This means, the session will be opened up to every conference
attendee to submit a contribution to the Minute Madness call. Although we
aim to accommodate as many talk proposals as possible, the submissions in
the form of a 1-minute video (using strictly one slide) will be ranked by a
Program Committee and the best 40 contributions will be selected. Accepted
Posters and Demos, willing to advertise themselves before the dedicated
session, will need to submit a Contribution to the Minute Madness call, but
will be assessed separately from the other submissions.

The Minute Madness will be organized in two plenary sessions, both on the
first day of the conference. The event’s goal is twofold, either to give an
author of any contribution at the conference the opportunity to advertise
their talk to a large audience and therefore ensure that all interested
participants will visit their talk or booth (in case of Posters & Demos) or
to give any other participant a chance to advertise any other relevant
topic of interest (e.g., early research results, organization of working
groups, open positions, cooperation opportunities, standardization
activities, upcoming events, etc.) to the ISWC plenary.
