*------------------------------------------------------Workshop Aims and
Scope ------------------------------------------------------*
The rapid growth of online available scientific, technical, and legal data
such as patents, technical reports, articles, etc. has made the large-scale
analysis and processing of such documents a crucial task. Today,
scientists, patent experts, inventors, and other information professionals
contribute to this data every day by publishing articles or writing patent
In order to benefit from the scientific-technical knowledge present in such
documents, it has become critical that the communities related to Semantic
Technologies, NLP, and Deep Learning join forces to provide more effective
and efficient solutions. This workshop aims to provide a venue for
researchers and practitioners to foster interdisciplinary research in the
areas of Semantic Technologies, NLP, and Deep Learning.


Semantic Technologies - Legal Data - Scientific Data - Natural Language
Processing - Knowledge Graphs - Deep Learning


We are interested in novel contributions about the following topics:

   - Data Set Collection
      - New tools and systems for capturing scientific, technical, and
      legal data including patents.
      - Proposals of procedures and tools to store, share and preserve.
      - Collecting and sharing data sets such as benchmarks, etc.
   - Novel Semantic Technologies for scientific, technical, and legal data
      - Ontologies and annotation schema to model such data.
      - Annotation, linking, and disambiguation.
      - Knowledge graph construction.
   - Applications for patents, scientific, technical, and legal data by
   exploiting semantic technologies.
      - Exploiting knowledge graphs to drive document similarity, question
      answering, search, etc.
      - Recommender systems.
      - Semantic content-based retrieval.
      - Natural language processing techniques for classification,
      summarization, etc.


The submissions must be in English and adhere to the CEUR-WS one-column
template: (see Session 2: The New CEURART
Style). The papers should be submitted as PDF files to EasyChair
<>. The review process
will be single-blind. Please be aware that at least one author per paper
must be registered and attend the workshop to present the work.

* Full research papers (10-12 pages) should be clearly placed with respect
to the state of the art and state the proposal's contribution in the
application domain, even if presenting preliminary results. In particular,
research papers should describe the methodology in detail, experiments
should be repeatable, and a comparison with the existing approaches in the
literature is encouraged.
* Short Papers (6-8 pages) should describe significant novel work in
progress. Compared to full papers, their contribution may be narrower in
scope, be applied to a narrower set of application domains, or have weaker
empirical support than that expected for a full paper. Submissions likely
to generate discussions in new and emerging scientific, technical, and
legal data areas are encouraged.
* Position or Industry Papers (2-4 pages) should introduce a new point of
view in the workshop topics or summarize the experience of a group in the
Submissions should be at most the indicated number of pages, including any
diagrams and references.

Three independent reviewers will review each submission on the basis of
relevance for the workshop, novelty/originality, significance, technical
quality and correctness, quality and clarity of presentation, quality of
references, and reproducibility.

The accepted papers will be available on the Workshop website. The
proceedings will be published in a CEUR-WS volume and consequently indexed
on Google Scholar, DBLP, and Scopus.
