Call For Papers

Together with the
3rd International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics (WIMS'13)

Date: to be announced (but one of WIMS'13 conference days: Jun 12-14, 2013)
Place: Madrid, Spain

The adoption of Semantic Web technologies implies new challenges for user interaction beyond those already posed by Web technologies and interactive systems in general. HSWI workshop aims to explore and evaluate good practices in interface design, and ultimately feed into possible recommendations for standardizing and consolidating knowledge and good practices into a set of guidelines for semantic web developers, to ensure the usability and reasonably functional user experiences of the next generation of Semantic Web applications.


HSWI invites papers on, but not strictly limited to, the following topics:
- Requirements for supporting the design and implementation of user interfaces for semanticapplications
- Natural Language Interfaces
- Interaction styles and requirements, including new/emergent types of interactions
- Models for specifying structure and behavior of semantic interfaces
- Lessons learned from developing, evaluating and using semantic interfaces
- Defining Semantic Interfaces: concepts, requirements
- Literature reviews and methodologies in the scope of Human-Semantic Web Interaction
- Stakeholders perspectives
- Sensemaking
- Semantic search interfaces
- Use Cases/Case Studies, best practices, evaluations
- New web based interaction technologies (Gesture, Touch, Mind-Web Interfaces, etc.)UI/UX
- Paradigms for semantic applications on mobile devices, taking into account on-board sensors (think: SIRI/Google Now on steroids)
- Visualization in semantic interfaces


For providing a forum for sharing novel ideas, HSWI welcomes a broad spectrum of contributions, including for example:
- Full research papers
- Position papers
- Case Studies
- Descriptions of Experiments
- Evaluations

The authors in doubt about the relevance of the genre of their submission are invited to contact HSWI organizers. Submissions will be evaluated by the members of the international program committee.

Submissions must be original and should not have been published previously or be under consideration for publication while being evaluated for this workshop.

The maximum length of papers is at most 12 pages in ACM format. Please note that the submission format is MS Word or PDF.

The papers/proposals must be written in English and formatted according to the ACM guidelines. Author instructions and style files can be downloaded at:

Submit your papers through EasyChair at:


Contributions will be selected based upon their quality as evaluated by 2-3 referees. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of WIMS’13, part of the International Conference Proceedings Series published by ACM.

At least one author of accepted papers is required to register at the conference.

Selected best papers will be considered for inclusion in a special issue of the Semantic Web Journal (SWJ) on Semantic Interfaces:
