* Submission

Submissions to JIST 2014 should describe original, significant research on the semantic technologies. Submissions to JIST 2014 are expected to present their claimed contribution, with clear evidence to support their claims. All submissions will be critically reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. To assess submissions, reviewers will judge their relevance to semantic technologies, their originality, the technical soundness of their proposed approach and the readability of the submission.

Submissions must be in PDF format, using the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Submissions must be no longer than *16* pages for REGULAR TECHNICAL SESSIONS and *6* pages for IN-USE TRACK. Accepted papers will be published in an LNCS post-proceedings.

Submissions that exceed this limit may be rejected without review. JIST 2014 will not accept submissions that are under review for or have already been published in or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. All submissions must be submitted via the EasyChair system at

Selected papers from the main conference and workshops will be invited to extend the work for submission to a special issue of the Maejo International Journal of Science and Technology (MIJST). (ISI Impact Factor: 0.456 (2012), SJR: 0.255 (2012))
