Call For Papers

Call for research papers

With only a few years, the rapid developing Web has led to revolutionary changes in the whole human society. The Semantic Web is the next generation of the Web. It provides a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across applications, enterprises, and community boundaries. Semantic Web technology facilitates building a large-scale Web of machine-readable knowledge that allows for data reuse and integration. Nowadays, many scholars and experts are devoting them to the work of applying the Semantic Web theories into specific practice, while in turn improving the Semantic Web theories and techniques according to the demand in practice. Web Science involves the full scope of Web-related applications, integrating all directions of Web-related interdisciplinary research into a new field. This joint conference aims to promote expansions from the Semantic Web to Web Science, and to discuss the core technology on the Next Generation Web, including swarm intelligence, semantic search, Web security, natural language processing (NLP) etc.

Ontology/knowledge patterns
Semantic search
Ontology management and maintenance
Ontology and data quality and evaluation
Ontologies for semantic technologie
NLP and Knowledge Representation
NLP and Machine Learning
NLP and Text Mining
Network analysis of the Web and human communities on the Web
Micro-level processes and interactions on the Web
Collective intelligence and social computing
The architecture and philosophy of the Web
The intersection of design and human interaction on the Web
Economics and social innovation on the Web
Governance, democracy, intellectual property, and the commons
Personal data, trust, and privacy
Social media mining and searching
Studies of Linked Data, the Cloud, and digital eco-systems.
Web access, literacy, and development
Knowledge, education, and scholarship on and through the Web
