The annual SEMANTiCS conference is the meeting place for professionals who make semantic computing work, who understand its benefits and encounter its limitations. Every year, SEMANTiCS attracts information managers, IT-architects, software engineers and researchers from organisations ranging from NPOs, through public administrations to the largest companies in the world. Attendees learn from industry experts and top researchers about emerging trends and topics in the fields of semantic software, enterprise data, linked data & open data strategies, methodologies in knowledge modelling and text & data analytics. The SEMANTiCS community is highly diverse; attendees have responsibilities in interlinking areas like knowledge management, technical documentation, e-commerce, big data analytics, enterprise search, document management, business intelligence and enterprise vocabulary management.

The success of last year’s conference in Leipzig with more than 230 attendees from 22 countries proves that SEMANTiCS 2015 will continue a long tradition of bringing together colleagues from around the world. There will be presentations on industry implementations, use case prototypes, best practices, panels, papers and posters to discuss semantic systems in birds-of-a-feather sessions as well as informal settings. SEMANTICS addresses problems common among information managers, software engineers, IT-architects and various specialist departments working to develop, implement and/or evaluate semantic software systems.

The SEMANTiCS program is a rich mix of technical talks, panel discussions of important topics and presentations by people who make things work - just like you. In addition, attendees can network with experts in a variety of fields. These relationships provide great value to organisations as they encounter subtle technical issues in any stage of implementation. The expertise gained by SEMANTiCS attendees has a long-term impact on their careers and organisations. These factors make SEMANTiCS for our community the major industry related event across Europe.

The following ‘horizontals’ (research) and ‘verticals’ (industries) topics are of interest:

Business Models, Governance & Data Strategies
Knowledge Discovery & Intelligent Search
Data Integration & Enterprise Linked Data
Big Data & Text Analytics
Data Portals & Knowledge Visualization
Semantic Information Management
Document Management & Content Management
Terminology, Thesaurus & Ontology Management

Industry & Engineering
Life Sciences & Health Care
Public Administration
Galleries, Libraries, Archives & Museums (GLAM)
Media, Publishing & Advertising
Financial & Insurance Industry
Energy, Transport & Environment

Research / Innovation Papers

The Research & Innovation track at SEMANTiCS welcomes the submission of papers on novel scientific research and/or innovations relevant to the topics of the conference. Submissions must be original and must not have been submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers should follow the ACM ICPS guidelines for formatting ( and must not exceed 8 pages in lenght for full papers and 4 pages for short papers, including references and optional appendices.

All accepted full papers and short papers will be published in the digital library of the ACM ICP Series under the ISBN-No.: 978-1-4503-1972-0. Research & Innovation papers should be submitted through EasyChair at: Papers must be submitted in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) format. Other formats will not be accepted.
