The 7th Joint International Semantic Technology Conference (JIST 2017)

November 10-12, 2017 (Fri - Sun)
Gold Coast, Australia

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.

In this announcement:
1. Important Dates (deadlines extended)
2. Recommendation to SCI Journals
3. Call for Papers (including a new special track)
4. Submission Guide
5. Organization


1. Important Dates

- Abstract submission: 23:59 (Hawaii Time), August 8, 2017
- Full paper submission: 23:59 (Hawaii Time), August 15, 2017
- Notification of Acceptance: September 15, 2017
- Camera-ready Deadline: September 30, 2017
- Conference: November 10-12, 2017


2. Recommendation to SCI Journals

A number of best papers accepted at JIST 2017 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), for fast-track
publication in a special issue in these journals. Up to five papers will be
selected and published. An indicative timeline is given below:

- Manuscript revision proposal: mid November 2017
- Submission of revised manuscript: mid January 2018
- Notification of acceptance: mid March 2018
- Publication: second half 2018


3. Call for Papers

Call for Research Track Papers

JIST 2017 research track solicits submissions of original research work on
semantic technologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Ontology and reasoning
- Knowledge Graph
- Linked Data
- Big Data and semantics, exchange and integration
- Data streams and the Internet of Things
- Machine learning and information extraction on the Semantic Web
- Semantic Web services and processes
- Trust, privacy, and security on the Semantic Web
- Social Semantic Web
- Natural language processing and semantics
- Semantic multimedia
- Novel applications of semantic technologies

Call for In-Use Track Papers

Quality shared resources such as public ontologies, datasets and software
are highly valuable to the research community, hence, JIST 2017 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
- Description of concrete problems
- Analysis and evaluation of semantic tools
- Lessons learned and best practices
- Linked Data, open data and vocabularies in production use
- Semantic resources
- Semantic technology in new application domains

Call for Special Track Papers

The philosophy behind Special Tracks is to facilitate the proactive
participation of researchers from certain fields or communities who have
linked the semantic technology with their research fields.

Special Tracks accept 8-page short papers that will be reviewed in the
same way as the Research Track papers and will be included in the
Proceedings if accepted.

In JIST 2017, we have two special tracks.

Special Track on Energy-awareness & Semantic Technologies (New):

As semantic technologies gain momentum, their impact on resources and
society increases. Energy-consumption is one of the main challenges of
21st century. The potential contribution of semantic technologies towards
this problem is twofold.

On the one hand semantic technologies can assist in energy management as
they are often the core of context-aware, self-adaptive applications.
For instance, ontologies are used to integrate heterogeneous sources
such as sensors or reasoners are employed in grid management applications.
On the other hand, the efficiency of semantic technologies is still mainly
assessed by running times. While computational and cognitive complexity are
investigated, work on their energy-consumption is still in its infancy.
However, assessing and managing their energy-consumption is a vital
prerequisite for for their usefulness on mobile devices, for instance.

The special track calls for contributions regarding, but not limited to:
- energy-adaptive semantic technologies
- measurement frameworks for energy consumption of semantic technologies
- application of semantic technologies for energy management
- ontologies for energy management
- semantic technologies for power or grid management

Special Track on Semantic Processing for Knowledge Graphs:

Semantic technologies such as Linked Data promote publication of various
data and knowledge on the web with semantic links among them. They form
huge sized knowledge bases called Knowledge Graphs in a large variety of
domains. An important technical feature of Knowledge Graphs is their rich
semantics. This special track focuses on semantics of Knowledge Graphs,
especially on how to use their semantics towards practical applications.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Semantic processing and reasoning for Knowledge Graph
- Application using semantics of Knowledge Graph
- Modelling of semantics for Knowledge Graph
- Development of Knowledge Graph (Ontology, Linked Data)

Call for Poster & Demo Papers

JIST 2017 cordially invites you to submit Poster and Demo papers.
For details please check our website:


4. Submission

Submissions to JIST 2017 should describe original, significant research on
semantic technologies. JIST 2017 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 to JIST 2017 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 2017 submissions are not anonymous.

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 Research and In-Use Tracks, and
no longer than *8* pages for the Special Tracks. Submissions that exceed
these limits may be rejected without review. Submissions to the In-Use Track
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
Please select the corresponding tracks when you submit your paper(s).
