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.

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:

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 JIST2017, we have a 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 and Workshop Proposals

JIST 2017 cordially invites you to submit Poster and Demo papers as well as workshop
proposals. 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).
