Call For Papers


The 6th Joint International Semantic Technology Conference (JIST 2016)

November 2-4, 2016 (Wed-Fri)

Recommendation to SCI Journals

The best (candidate) papers of JIST2015 will be invited to present at the Meet the Editor session of SCI indexed journals, including International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems (IJSWIS). More journals will be added soon.

The mission of the Joint International Semantic Technology Conference (JIST) is to bring together researchers in Semantic Technology research community and other areas of semantic related technologies to present their innovative research results or novel applications of semantic technologies.

JIST 2016 research track solicits submissions of original research work on semantic technologies and vocabularies.

* Submission

Submissions to JIST 2016 research track should describe original, significant research on semantic technologies. Submissions to JIST 2016 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. JIST 2016 submissions are not anonymous.

JIST 2016 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. 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 the TECHNICAL TRACK. Submissions that exceed this limit may be rejected without review.

Accepted papers will be published in an LNCS proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper there.

Papers can be submitted electronically via Please select the research track when you submit your paper(s).
