Abstract registration deadline August 28, 2023
Submission deadline September 4, 2023

The 12th International Joint Conference on Knowledge Graphs (IJCKG 2023) is a premium academic forum on Knowledge Graphs. The mission of IJCKG 2023 is to bring together international researchers in the Knowledge Graph community and other related areas to present their innovative research results or novel applications of Knowledge Graphs. IJCKG has evolved from the Joint International Semantic Technology Conference (JIST): a joint event for disseminating research results regarding the Semantic Web, Knowledge Graphs, Linked Data and AI on the Web.

Research Track

The IJCKG 2023 Research Track solicits submissions of original research work relating to Knowledge Graphs. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Representation Learning for Knowledge Graphs
- Knowledge Graph Embeddings
- Graph Neural Networks
- Semantic Web and Linked Data
- Ontologies and Reasoning
- Knowledge Graph Construction
- Knowledge Graph Population and Information Extraction
- Knowledge Graph Completion
- Knowledge Graph Quality Assessment and Refinement
- Knowledge Representation and Semantic Reasoning
- Graph Processing Frameworks
- Graph Algorithms and Analytics
- Semantic Search, Question Answering, and Chatbots
- Graph Databases and Query Languages
- Multimodal Knowledge Graphs
- Contextualized Knowledge Graphs
- Cross-modal Semantic Understanding
- Trust, Privacy, and Security for Knowledge Graphs
- Blockchain Technologies and Knowledge Graphs
- Open and Enterprise Knowledge Graphs
- Knowledge Graphs for Explainable AI
- NLP for Knowledge Graphs
- Novel Applications of Knowledge Graphs

Important Dates (all dates are 23:59 AOE)

- Abstract submission: August 28, 2023
- Full paper submission: September 4, 2023
- Acceptance Notification: October 6, 2023
- Camera Ready submissions: October 13, 2023
- Conference Date: December 8-9, 2023

Submission types

One of the main goals of IJCKG is to unify the research community working on diverse aspects of Knowledge Graphs. As well as regular research papers (up to 8 pages ACM format, excluding references), we thus additionally solicit short papers (up to 4 pages ACM format, excluding references) that summarize research results (i.e., concise versions of full research papers).

In addition to regular papers, this year IJCKG 2023 will call foster research papers in the following topics chaired by the following area chairs:

- Representation and Reasoning. Markus Kroetzsch, TU Dresden, Germany
- Database. Jan Hidders, Birkbeck, University of London, UK
- Information Retrieval. Jeff Dalton, University of Glasgow, UK
- Natural Lanauage Processing. Peng Liu, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway
- Machine Learning. Lemei Zhang, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway

Details of each area will be provided later.

All papers should be clearly written, technically sound, and include discussion of related works. Authors should clearly indicate in the abstract and the introduction what type of paper they are submitting.


Submissions to IJCKG 2023 should describe original work on Knowledge Graphs. IJCKG 2023 will not accept submissions that are under review for or have already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference (*).

* Non peer-reviewed documents such as theses, technical reports, publications on preprint servers (e.g., or workshops papers without formal proceedings are not considered prior publications. In such cases, IJCKG 2023 authors are not precluded from submitting papers on the same topic by the same authors.

Full research papers submitted to IJCKG 2023 are expected to present their claimed research contribution, with clear evidence to support their claims.

All submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee of the Research Track. These anonymous reviewers will judge each paper’s relevance to the conference, technical soundness, and the readability of the submission.

IJCKG 2023 submissions are not anonymous.

Submissions must be in PDF format, using the latest ACM Proceedings Format with the default 9pt font (see sample-sigconf.tex or Interim layout.docx from

Regular research paper submissions must be no longer than 8 pages, excluding references. Short paper submissions must be no longer than 4 pages, excluding references. Unlimited additional pages may be used for references. Submissions that exceed this limit or that do not follow the indicated format may be rejected without review.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper there.

Papers can be submitted electronically via EasyChair. (select a track from regular research papers or foster research papers for five areas).

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library within its International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS). Papers for which authors do not register and present may be excluded from the proceedings.
