CfP ISWC 2021 - 2nd Call for Research, In-Use, and Resource papers

20th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2021)

Virtual, October 24-28, 2021

In this announcement:
1. Call for Research papers
2. Call for In-Use papers
3. Call for Resource papers

1. Call for Research papers
In this track of ISWC 2021, 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 the 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 reviewing
criteria. We also strongly encourage papers that provide links to the data
sets, source code and queries used to evaluate their approach, and/or live

Topics of interest and further details:

Track Chairs:
- Eva Blomqvist (University of Linköping, Sweden)
- Andreas Hotho (University of Würzburg, Germany)


2. Call for In-Use papers
The In-Use track at ISWC 2021 continues the tradition of demonstrating and
sharing 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 society. 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

Topics of interest and further details:

Track Chairs:
- Ying Ding (University of Texas at Austin, USA)
- Payam Barnaghi (Imperial College London, UK)


3. Call for Resource papers
The ISWC 2021 Resources Track aims to promote the sharing of resources
which support, enable or utilise semantic web research. Resources include,
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 have contributed or may contribute to the
generation of novel scientific work. In particular, we encourage the
sharing of such resources following best and well-established practices
within the Semantic Web community. As such, this track calls for
contributions that provide a concise and clear description of a resource
and its usage.

Topics of interest and further details:

Track Chairs:
- Stefan Dietze (GESIS, Cologne & Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf,
- Achille Fokoue (IBM Research, Yorktown Heights, NY, USA)
