I-SEMANTICS 2013 ( 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 (

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:

The Web of Data
● Large scale triplification and processing of data
● Vocabularies, taxonomies and schemas for the web of data
● Querying, searching and browsing over the web of data
● Data integration and interlinking for the web of data
● Location-based services and mobile semantic applications
● User interaction and innovative visualizations for the web of data
● Reasoning over the web of data
● (Mashup) applications utilizing (large scale) linked data resources
● Recommender systems making use of the web of data
● Integrating microposts into the web of data
● Linked enterprise data and (open) linked government data
● Linked sensor data and machine-to-machine communication

Quality of Semantic Data on the Web
● Provenance information for the web of data
● Large scale ontology inspection, maintenance and repair
● Co-reference detection and dataset reconciliation
● Quality analysis and metrics for the web of data
● Trust, privacy and security in semantic web applications

Corporate Semantic Web
● Corporate thesauri, business vocabularies, ontologies and rules
● Semantic business, e-commerce and m-commerce systems
● Semantic procurement for enterprises and governments
● Semantics, pragmatics and semiotics in organizations
● Enterprise trust and reputation management
● Organisational issues in the deployment and application of semantic technologies

Social Semantic Web
● Enriching social web data and information with semantics and linked data
● Semantically-enabled social platforms and applications
● Users as virtual and physical sensors and devices for a ubiquitous social semantic web
● Semantic based personalization, as e.g. for recommendations, social navigation, collaborative search, social filtering, etc
● Reality augmented by the social semantic web
● Querying, mining and analysis of social semantic web data and dynamics
● Representing and reasoning with uncertainty, provenance, trust in social web data
● Ethical issues related to the use of user generated content & linked data

Semantic Content Engineering
● Collaborative ontology engineering
● Ontology modularity, alignment and merging
● Ontology design patterns and life cycle management
● Ontology learning and knowledge acquisition
● Semantic annotation and tagging
● Making sense of microposts
● Semantic content management systems

Semantic Multimedia
● Semantic-driven multimedia applications
● Multimedia ontologies and infrastructures
● Content-based semantic multimedia analysis and data mining
● Semantic-driven multimedia indexing and retrieval
● Named entity recognition and disambiguation in multimedia documents
● Human-computer interfaces and visualization for multimedia data access

Studies, Metrics & Benchmarks
● Case studies of and benchmarks in semantic systems usage
● Evaluation perspectives, methods and semantic web research methodologies
● Technology assessment and acceptance/reactance research
● Usability and user interaction with semantic technologies
● Case studies with clear lessons learned or evaluations

Data Ecosystems & Markets
● Economic foundations of data assets, markets and data crowd sourcing
● Business and governance models for data commerce
● Production principles and measures of data creation, curation and utilization
● Business models and economic impacts of Linked (Enterprise) Data and/or large scale semantic systems
● Case studies for sector-specific data strategies

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.
Please note: Poster and Demo papers are planned to be published within CEUR-WS.
