SumPre 2015 - Call for Papers

1st International Workshop on Summarizing and Presenting Entities and Ontologies
co-located with the 12th European Semantic Web Conference
June 1, 2015, Portorož, Slovenia

http://km.aifb.kit.edu/ws/sumpre2015/


OBJECTIVES
*****************

The Open Data and Semantic Web efforts have been promoting and facilitating the publication and integration of data from diverse sources, giving rise to a large and increasing volume of machine-readable data available on the Web. Even though such raw data and its ontological schema enable the interoperability among Web applications, problems arise when exposing them to human users, as to how to present such large-scale, structured data in a user-friendly manner. To meet the challenge, we invite research contributions on all aspects of ranking, summarization, visualization, and exploration of entities, ontologies, knowledge bases and Web Data, with a particular focus on their summarization and presentation. We also welcome submissions on novel applications of these techniques. The workshop is expected to be a forum that brings together researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry in the areas of Semantic Web, information retrieval, data engineering, and human-computer interaction, to discuss high-quality research and emerging applications, to exchange ideas and experience, and to identify new opportunities for collaboration.


TOPICS OF INTEREST
****************************

Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

1) Ranking and summarizing entities, ontologies, knowledge bases and Web data
* Entity ranking, summarization, and search
* Task and context-specific entity summarization
* Summarization of graphs and knowledge bases
* Ontology ranking, summarization, modularization, and search
* Fact ranking, retrieval, and question answering over the Web
* Evaluation of ranking and summarization methods
2) Visualizing and exploring entities, ontologies, knowledge bases and Web data
* Verbalizing and visualizing entity-centric data
* Ontology visualization and exploration
* Navigation, faceted browsing, and exploratory search
* Entity/link/ontology recommendation
* Novel presentation methods and interaction paradigms for knowledge bases and Web data
* User studies with visualization and exploration methods
3) Novel applications of the above techniques


IMPORTANT DATES
*************************

* Submission deadline: March 26, 2015 (23:59 Hawaii Time)
* Notifications: April 16, 2015 (23:59 Hawaii Time)
* Camera-ready version: April 30, 2015 (23:59 Hawaii Time)
* Workshop day: June 1, 2015


SUBMISSIONS
*******************

We seek the following kinds of submissions:
* Full research papers: up to 12 pages in Springer LNCS format
* Short research/in-use/demo papers: up to 5 pages in Springer LNCS format
* Pitch notes (novel/original ideas): up to 2 pages in Springer LNCS format

Papers should be submitted in EasyChair:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sumpre2015

Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop and included in a volume of the CEUR workshop proceedings. Best papers will be included in the supplementary proceedings of ESWC 2015, and their extended versions will be recommended to the International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems (IJSWIS). At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to register for the workshop and attend to present the paper.
