Call For Papers

The JIST2016 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. The purpose of a workshop is to provide participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel research ideas on active and emerging topics of semantic technologies. Ideally a workshop should foster interactions between different communities within the scope of JIST (e.g., computer scientists, data scientists, and so on) from academia and industry. A workshop should not be a mini-conference, but rather it should encourage the presentation of novel ideas, even if they are in an early stage of development, contact between different points of view, and active exchanges between participants.

The responsibilities of the workshop organizers include

- preparing the call for papers and publicizing it,
- preparing workshop website,
- deciding the workshop program content; this may optionally include inviting speakers, inviting reviewers, selecting the papers through a peer review process delivering the notes to the press in time,
- delivering the final workshop program to the workshop chair in time, and
- proceeding publication of the workshop.
A workshop proposal should include the following information:

- Workshop title
- Full contact information of the organizers
- Description of the workshop including objectives
- Content, topics of interest.
- Please indicate your preference regarding the length of the workshop: Half-day or full-day.
- A short description of the target audience.
- A summary of previous editions of the workshop (if it was run before), with an emphasis on number of attendees and paper submissions.
- A short biography of each organizer.

Proposals will be judged based on the above information. Particular preference will be given to proposals that demonstrate the ability to foster interactions among multiple communities, as noted above. We prefer workshops in which there is participation of diverse people who may not have worked with one another in the past, or which bridge between various topics on semantic technology communities. External sources of funding or sponsorship for special events held along with the workshop (e.g. invited talks, poster session) can be optionally included in the proposal submission.
