Call For Papers

Call for Papers

The AI mashup challenge as a satelite event of ESWC 2014, accepts and awards mashups that use AI technology, including but not restricted to machine learning and data mining, machine vision, natural language processing, reasoning, ontologies in the context of the semantic web. Such services may run on any medium, including web browsers, handheld devices, mobile phones (IOS, Android), etc. Mashups will be presented in a special session during the ESWC 2014 Conference, which will be held in Crete, from Sunday, May 25, 2014 to Thursday, May 29, 2014.


A mashup is a lightweight (web) application that offers new functionality by combining, aggregating and transforming resources and services available on the web. Combination alone is not enough to call it a mashup. Consider, for example, visiting a site that is written in a foreign language. Simultaneously using a dictionary in order to translate certain words is not a mashup. A possible mashup would be a new service allowing to click on a foreign word and simultaneously get it translated.

Instructions for Challengers

Challengers should provide both a paper describing their mashup and an online, working prototype. Initially, all mashups will undergo a peer-review process that decides which Challengers will qualify to participate in the ESWC 2014 Conference. The qualification decision will be based on the quality of the submitted paper and the maturity of the corresponding mashup. Keep in mind that during the reviewing process, the members of the Program Committee will look for an online (not necessarily complete) version of each mashup. The participation process is outlined in the following steps:

As soon as you decide to participate in this event, register your mashup by sending a short (no more than 200 words) abstract to Ioannis Papadakis (address below). The organizers will provide you with access to a subpage of this wiki in order to advertise your mashup and refer to its URL. Have in mind that your mashup stays at your URL and under your control. You can go on improving it until the days of the conference.
Submit an 8-page paper (LNCS format) corresponding to the mashup. Be careful, there is a deadline for paper submission! All submissions will be peer-reviewed. The paper reviewing process along with the mashup evaluation per se will result in the mashups that qualify to participate in the event and compete for the highest ranking.
The Challenge will have its own session during the ESWC 2014 Conference. If you qualify to the event, you will be asked to present your mashup with a poster and/or laptop. Moreover, all qualified papers will participate in a dedicated proceedings volume at
At the end of the event, all Conference participants will vote for the best mashup. Their vote will decide the winners of the Challenge. The three mashups that received the best reviews in the qualification process will be granted extra votes during the voting. More specifically, the best review will receive 4 extra votes, the second-best will receive 2 extra votes and the third-best will receive 1 extra vote.
The final results will be announced during the closing ceremony of the Conference and any possible awards will be given to their owners.
The top-three mashups will have the opportunity to provide an extended version of their initial papers that will undergo another peer-reviewing process to participate in supplementary post-conference proceedings to be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. If your paper belongs to the top-three, you will be asked to address the reviewers' comments and provide a camera-ready version as well.
