Call For Papers
CALL FOR PAPERS OF IN-USE TRACK
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 in-use track solicits submissions of original work on applications of semantic technologies and vocabularies. Quality shared resources such as public ontologies, datasets and software are highly valuable to the research community, hence, JIST 2016 in-use track also calls for submissions of public, shared resources of interest to the Semantic Web community.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Description of an implemented application of semantic technology in a specific domain
- Description of concrete problems in specific application domains, for which semantic technology can provide a solution
- Analysis and evaluation of usability and uptake of semantic tools
- Lessons learned and best practices from deploying and using an application or service based on semantic technology
- Assessment of costs and benefits of implementing, deploying, using, and managing semantic technology
- Analysis of risks and opportunities of using semantic technology in organizations with respect to their businesses and customers
- Pragmatics of using or deploying semantic technology in real-world scenarios
- Comparison of semantic technology with alternative approaches that use conventional or competing technologies
- Linked Data, open data and vocabularies in production use
- Semantic resources, including but not limited to ontologies, datasets, benchmarks, and replication studies, services & software
- Semantic technology in new application domains, including: eGovernment, eHealth, smart cities, life sciences, sensor networks, urban planning, media and entertainment, telecommunications, cultural heritage, financial services, energy and utilities, manufacturing, digital libraries, cloud applications, personal information management, etc.
Submissions to JIST 2016 in-use track should describe original, innovative application of 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 IN-USE TRACK. Submissions that exceed this limit may be rejected without review. Submissions that are less than 16 pages can be considered.
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 https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jist2016. Please select the in-use track when you submit your paper(s).
