Call For Papers

4th Knowledge Engineering and Semantic Web Conference (St. Petersburg, Russia, October 7-9, 2013)

KESW is a top Russian venue for discussing research issues related to knowledge representation, Semantic Web, and Linked Data. Its aim is to bring together researchers, practitioners, and educators, in particular from ex-USSR, Eastern and Northern Europe, to present and share ideas regarding Semantic Web, and popularize the area in these regions.

Following the success in the previous years, we solicit original and substantial contributions for this year's technical program. The program will feature three tracks for research papers, industrial papers, and posters/demos. Additionally, we welcome position papers to discuss ideas on their early stages of development.

The sole language for all kinds of submissions this year is English.

For the research track we welcome novel papers addressing theoretical, analytical or empirical aspects of research related to KR and Semantic Web.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Ontology management:
* Logical and philosophical foundations
* Merging and alignment, modularity
* Collaborative engineering and exchange
KR and Reasoning:
* Knowledge acquisition and management
* Theory of automated reasoning
* Practical reasoning algorithms
* Applications

Linked Data:
* Publishing and integration
* Querying
* Scalability aspects

Semantic Databases:
* RDF and other DBs for Linked Data
* Ontologies and databases
* Query answering

Semantic Web Services
Semantic Search
Human Computer Interaction
Semantic Social Web
Trust, Security, and Privacy
Knowledge Visualization
Semantic Web in Education

For the industry track we solicit papers that describe practical experience of using Semantic Web or KR-related technologies in practical projects. Descriptions of industrial deployments and production usage are especially invited but papers with preliminary experience are also welcome (as long as the authors are able to demonstrate, preferably with some quantitative data, practical utility of Semantic Web technologies in a particular domain).

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Applications of Semantic Web technologies in various industrial domains.
* Applications of Semantic Web technologies in community, government and semantic smart city.
* Industrial trends related to the usage of Linked Data and Semantic Web technologies.
* Description and analysis of concrete problems and user requirements for applying Semantic Web technologies in specific industry domains.
* Analysis and evaluation of usability, assessment of pros and cons of using Semantic Web technologies in real-world scenarios including models of investment justifications (ROI).

P&D is an opportunity to present research through an informal discussion or presentation. We invite submissions relevant to the above topics. Both posters and demos may complement submissions to the research and industrial tracks. Furthermore, we explicitly invite you to submit a poster or a demo if your research or industry paper has been accepted.

All authors will be required to pre-submit abstracts of their papers. Both papers and abstracts should be submitted via Easychair at:

Size restrictions are as follows:

Research papers: no more than 15 pages
Industrial papers: no more than 10 pages
Demo descriptions: no more than 8 pages
Posters and position papers: no more than 2 pages.

Submissions must be prepared according to the Springer LNCS format.

Research/industry track abstract submission: May 25th, 2013
Research/industry track paper submission: May 31st, 2013
Author notification: July 1st, 2013
Poster/demo/position paper submission: July 15th, 2013

The proceedings will be published in the Springer's Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series. The papers will be abstracted/indexed by DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago, and Scopus.

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

Same as last year, the conference will be preceded by the Semantic Web and Linked Data school, for which the tentative dates are Oct 1-5. School-specific announcements will be made later.


General Chair: Dmitry Mouromtsev, NRU ITMO, St. Petersburg, Russia
Program Co-Chair (Research): Pavel Klinov, University of Ulm, Germany
Program Co-Chair (Industry): Daniel Hladky, NRU HSE / W3C Russia Office
