CALL FOR PAPERS
****************************************************************

==============
AIMS AND SCOPE
==============

Recent advances in availability of information on the Internet, storage space
and web generated content have paved the way for the advent of Big Data. The
well-known 4 Vs (Velocity, Variety, Volume, Value) that characterize Big Data
can find a match in intelligent ways for management, manipulation and value-
extraction. It is widely acknowledged that the recent surge in AI and especially
machine learning is exactly due to these advancements. The Semantic Web can
offer a well-studied, although ever advancing, toolbox that can address Big Data
requirements and contribute towards their meaningful analysis. Still, there are
often issues that need to be tackled with like bootstrapping, efficiency and
standardized business processes for semantic analytics to achieve satisfactory
results. To this end, machine- and deep-learning techniques, while being shunned
in the past, have been shown to have considerable contributions towards Big Data
analytics and to overcome Semantic Web inherent limitations.
Therefore, the aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners to look deeper into how Semantic Web technologies can contribute
towards Big Data analytics. This can be achieved either by extracting value out
of these data (through reasoning), creating sustainable ontology models,
offering a solid foundation for deploying learning techniques or anything in
between.

==================
TOPICS OF INTEREST
==================

Indicative topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to:
- Ontologies for big data
- Semantic applications in big data domains including open datasets, linked
data, scholarly information, e-learning, economics, insurance, sensors,
bioinformatics
- Reasoning approaches for knowledge extraction
- Ontology learning
- Topic modeling
- Linked Data
- NLP and word embedding
- Semantic deep learning
- Semantic lakes
- OBDA approaches for big data access
- Evaluation techniques
- Ontologies as training sets
- Ontology evolution and learning feedback
- Scalability issues

================
PAPER SUBMISSION
================

Papers reporting original and unpublished research results on the above and
related topics are solicited. Authors should submit a paper with up to 10 pages
(in English) in single-column Springer format following the Springer IFIP AICT
format guidelines. Submissions must be in electronic form as PDF files
and should be uploaded at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sedseal2018.
Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least 2 independent members of the
program committee.
At least one author of each accepted paper must be registered and present the
paper at the workshop. All accepted papers will be included in the conference
proceedings and published in the Springer IFIP AICT (Advances in Information and
Communication Technology series). Extended versions of selected workshop papers
will be considered for publication in international journals.
