Call For Papers

Co-located with the Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC) 2015

To advance and consolidate the development of Semantic Web (SW) technologies and applications, a strong interdisciplinary approach is required. Amongst others, SW technologies imply new challenges for user interaction - and especially end user interaction - beyond those already posed by Web technologies and interactive systems in general.
The HSWI workshop aims to explore and evaluate good practices in interface design, and ultimately feed into possible recommendations for standardizing and consolidating knowledge and good practices into a set of guidelines for semantic web developers, to ensure the usability and reasonably functional user experiences of the next generation of Semantic Web applications.
The workshop invites papers on approaches, methods, evaluations, case studies, and lessons learned on topics such as:

* Visualization in semantic interfaces
* Natural language interfaces to the Semantic Web
* Semantic Web applications and tools addressing the needs of end users, both for creating and consuming Semantic Web data
* New interaction techniques for the semantic web (e.g., gesture- and touch-based interaction with the Semantic Web, mind-web interfaces, etc.)
* Models for specifying structure and behavior of Semantic Web interfaces
* Sensemaking
* Semantic search interfaces
* Semantic applications on mobile devices, taking into account on-board sensors
* Using Semantic Web technologies in user interfaces of existing systems
* User studies and evaluations of Semantic Web interfaces and applications

For providing a forum for sharing novel ideas, HSWI welcomes a broad spectrum of contributions, including:
* Full research papers
* Position papers, work in progress reports
* Case studies
* Descriptions of experiments
* Evaluations

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers related to the aforementioned topics. We invite:
* regular papers (8 to 12 pages)
* short papers (4 to 6 pages)
All submissions are required to be in PDF format. Long and short paper submissions must be formatted according to Springer’s LNCS format (

Submission deadline: March 6th, 2015
