1. Call for Papers - Ph.D. Symposium
The ESWC 2020 Ph.D. Symposium is a forum for Ph.D. students working in all areas of Semantic Web research to present their work, meet with peers and experienced researchers, receive feedback, and learn from each otherís experiences. It aims at helping Ph.D. students in developing the skills and confidence required to conduct and promote their research, as well as providing them with an opportunity to attend one of the most important research conferences on the Semantic Web.

The ESWC Ph.D. Symposium will give students the opportunity to:

*    Learn by constructive criticism: Established researchers and Ph.D. student advisors will provide constructive feedback to the submitted papers by means of an open and non-adversarial review process.
*    Learn from a mentor: Each student of an accepted paper will be assigned to a mentor- a selected member of the programme committee. Students will interact with their mentors on both the revision of their papers and the preparation of their presentations.
*    Learn about research: Doing good research goes beyond writing a good paper; it includes perspectives on research as an endeavour and a career. Besides the presentations, coffee breaks and the Ph.D. mentoring lunch will be used to exchange ideas and ask questions about all aspects of pursuing a Ph.D. and a research career in general.
*    Learn by presenting: Accepted contributions will be presented at the Ph.D. Symposium. All accepted contributions will also be included at the general poster session of ESWC. Studentsí posters will be presented alongside posters and demonstrations of the main conference.

2. Call for Papers - Posters & Demos
The posters and demos track of ESWC, https://2020.eswc-conferences.org/, provides a forum for late-breaking results, on-going research projects, and innovative ideas, as well as prototypes of semantic technologies and their applications in various domains. Submissions to the posters and demos track may cover all areas of Semantic Web research and applications, such as Linked Data and Knowledge Graphs, Ontologies, Reasoning, Natural Language Processing and Understanding, Machine and Deep Learning, Information Retrieval, Data Quality and Data Integration, and Semantic Data Management, as well as applications from Life Sciences, eGovernment, Business, Manufacturing, eScience, Emergency and Crisis Management, Cultural Heritage, Tourism, Autonomous Systems, etc. Posters and demos will be presented in a separate, interactive session, providing the opportunity for engaging in discussions and direct exchange.

3. Call for Papers - Industry Track
 The industry track seeks to present the state of adoption of semantic technologies in industrial applications,  and intends to facilitate a discussion about what current industry challenges can be addressed with semantic technologies. These technologies may be used in specific industries (e.g., media, financials, telecommunications, healthcare, life sciences, government, intelligence, public sector, industrial production etc.) and in different application areas (e.g., business intelligence, smart cities, digital twin, analytics, search, content management, knowledge management, recommendation systems, data integration, automotive etc.).

The industry track aims to facilitate the exchange between Semantic Web researchers and industrial solution developers to bridge between state-of-the-art research and its application in industrial scenarios. We welcome contributions about:

*    Success stories of adoption of semantic technologies and knowledge graphs in real-world environments, especially by emphasizing how these technologies have succeeded in creating value as well as key factors for the success of the adoption in a large-scale organization.
*    Experiences about challenges that are encountered in an industry setting when adopting a solution  based on semantic technologies.
*    Contributions about current challenges in industrial fields which should be tackled by semantic technologies, emphasizing solution approaches and existing issues that are currently only insufficiently addressed by Semantic Web research.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
*    Development and application of semantic technologies and knowledge graphs for specific industries (automotive, financial, healthcare and life sciences, energy industry, industry 4.0, public sector etc.)
*    Real-world applications of semantic technologies for enabling FAIR (meta) data
*    Approaches to bridge between domain experts and semantic technology experts
*    Successful application domains: Knowledge management, data integration, data sharing, search, Business Intelligence, data analytics, open data, enterprise data management etc.
*    Industrial trends related to the usage of Linked Data, Open Data and Semantic Web technologies
*    Financial and strategic investments in semantic technologies
*    Machine Learning approaches in connection with the Semantic Web (e.g. ML for knowledge graph completion or ontology matching, learning of knowledge graph and entity embeddings, question answering, etc)
