Scope
--------------
I-SEMANTICS 2013 (www.i-semantics.at) is the
9th International Conference on Semantic Systems. The conference brings
together both researchers and practitioners in the areas of Semantic
Technologies, Linked Data and the Semantic Web in order to showcase cutting
edge research, demonstrators and applications for the Corporate and Social
Semantic Web. I-SEMANTICS 2013 will also hold the "I-CHALLENGE",
which brings to you the 6th Linked Data Cup (formerly Triplification
Challenge), the Best Paper Award and the Best Poster Award. In order to
foster synergies among the research fields of knowledge discovery, social
computing, and semantic technologies I-SEMANTICS Conference will be held
together with the I-KNOW Conference, the 13th International Conference on
Knowledge Technologies (http://www.i-know.at/).


Topics
-----------------
As a conference aiming to bring together science and industry, I-SEMANTICS
encourages scientific research and application-oriented contributions in the
field of Semantic Technologies, Semantic Web and Linked Data. The topics of
interest for this year's conference include but are not limited to:

I-SEMANTICS Submission Information
---------------------------------------------------------------------
All accepted full papers and short papers of I-SEMANTICS 2013 will be
published in the digital library of the ACM ICP Series under the ISBN-No.:
978-1-4503-1972-0.
Please note: Poster and Demo papers are planned to be
published at CEUR-WS again.


Research / application papers
-------------------------------------------------------
Research papers report on novel research and/or applications relevant to the
topics of the conference. Submissions must be original and must not have
been submitted for publication elsewhere. The number of pages of research
papers is limited to 8 pages for full papers and 4 pages for short papers
including references and an optional appendix.

Full and short papers should follow the ACM ICPS guidelines for formatting
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates) and must be
submitted via the online submission system available at the conference
website as PDF documents (other formats will not be accepted). For the
camera-ready version, we will also need the source files (Latex, Word
Perfect, Word).


Important dates (Research & Application & Challenge Papers)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Abstract Submission Deadline: March 25, 2013
- Paper Submission Deadline: April 1, 2013
- Notification of Acceptance: May 3, 2013
- Camera-Ready Paper: June 10, 2013


Posters, demo & PhD track
--------------------------------------------------
The Posters & Demonstrations Track and the PhD Track offer an opportunity to
present late-breaking research results, smaller contributions, and
innovative work in progress.

The informal setting of the Posters & Demonstrations Track encourages
presenters and participants to engage in discussions about the presented
work. Such discussions can be invaluable inputs for the future work of the
presenters, while offering conference participants an effective way to
broaden their knowledge of the emerging research trends and to network with
other researchers. Poster and demo submissions should consist of a paper of
3-4 pages that describes the work and its contribution to the
field. Submissions to this track must be in the Springer LNCS format
(http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs/lncs+authors), i.e. please do NOT use
the ACM template here.

The objective of the PhD Track is to provide doctoral students with a forum
to present and discuss their research projects with experienced researchers
(mentors) and fellow students. It addresses PhD students at an
early stage of their doctoral studies, who want to receive feedback from
internationally recognized researchers. Ideally, participants will have a
well-defined problem statement and precise questions to discuss with their
mentor. Applicants should be PhD students (from any country), conducting
ongoing research in the areas of semantic technologies, Linked Data and the
Semantic Web.

PhD Track submissions should consist of up to 1.500 words and contain
the following:
- Name, affiliation and contact details of the PhD student
- Name(s) of the supervisor(s)
- Summary of the research project, including:
- Problem: research questions, motivation, state of the art and
relevance for the fields of Semantic Technologies, Linked Data and
Semantic Web
- Approach: (planned) approach and methodology
- Current status / timeline: current status of the work and any
results that have already been reached plus outlook to future work
- A list of key questions that the PhD student wants to discuss during
the event

Submissions will be reviewed by experienced researchers; each submission
will receive detailed feedback. The program committee will select
participants who will give a short presentation about their research project
during the I-SEMANTICS PhD Track. Main focus of the event is on discussion,
support and solving open questions.


Important dates (Posters & Demo Papers & PhD Track)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Submission Deadline: May 10, 2013
- Notification of Acceptance: June 17, 2013
- Camera Ready Paper: July 18, 2013


I-CHALLENGE
---------------------------
For the second time in 2013 we will bring to you the I-CHALLENGE, consisting
of the Best Research/Application Paper Award, the Best Poster Award and the
Linked Data Cup. While the best paper will be selected by the program
committee, the Best Poster will be voted by the conference audience via
online voting. (Please expect more details for all the Best Paper Awards in
the weeks to come.)
Information on the Linked Data Cup will be available soon.
