Call For Papers

Semantic Methods for Events and Stories, 2nd Edition (SEMMES 2024) – Call for Papers


Workshop co-located with the Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC) in Hersonissos, Greece
Submission deadline: March 7th, 2024

An important part of human history and knowledge is made of events, which can be aggregated and connected to create stories, be they real or fictional. These events as well as the stories created from them can typically be inherently complex, reflect societal or political stances and be perceived differently across the world population. The Semantic Web offers technologies and methods to represent these events and stories, as well as to interpret the knowledge encoded into graphs and use it for different applications, spanning from narrative understanding and generation to fact-checking.

The aim of the 2nd edition of our workshop on Semantic Methods for Events and Stories (SEMMES) is to offer an opportunity to discuss the challenges related to dealing with events and stories, and how we can use semantic methods to tackle them. We welcome approaches which combine data, methods and technologies coming from the Semantic Web with methods from other fields, including machine learning, narratology or information extraction. This workshop wants to bring together researchers working on complementary topics, in order to foster collaboration and sharing of expertise in the context of events and stories.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Ontologies and data models for representing events, event relations, and narratives;
- Event extraction, co-reference and linking;
- Event Relation extraction and linking (e.g. temporal, causal, modal relationships);
- Methods combining KGs and LLMs targeting event- or narrative-related research;
- Fake events detection and event verification;
- Event-centric question answering;
- Event information visualisation;
- Event-centric knowledge graphs and vocabularies;
- Completion of event-centric knowledge graphs and reasoning;
- Event summarisation;
- Automatic narrative understanding and generation;
- Storytelling Applications/Demos.

Submission Guidelines
We welcome the following types of contributions.

- Long papers (10-15 pages including references)
- Short papers (5-9 pages including references)

We welcome any types of research, resource and application papers, as well as (short only) demonstration submissions.

Submissions must be written in English and formatted using the template for submissions to CEUR Workshop Proceedings

All papers and abstracts have to be submitted electronically via EasyChair.
Each accepted paper needs to be presented by one of the authors, who agrees to register and participate in SEMMES.
Authors may be requested to serve as reviewers for max 2 papers.

Important Dates
- Submission deadline: March 7th, 2024
- Notifications: April 4th, 2024
- Camera-ready version: April 18th, 2024
- Workshop day: May 26th or 27th, 2024 (half-day, TBA)

All deadlines are 23:59 anywhere on earth (UTC-12).

The complete set of papers will be published with the joint CEUR ESWC Workshop Proceedings
