Call For Papers

SWIB conference (Semantic Web in Libraries) is an annual conference, being held for the 11th time, focusing on Linked Open Data (LOD) in libraries and related organizations. It is well established as an event where IT staff, developers, librarians, and researchers from over the world meet and mingle and learn from each other. The topics of talks and workshops at SWIB revolve around opening data, linking data and creating tools and software for LOD production scenarios. These areas of focus are supplemented by presentations of research projects in applied sciences, industry applications, and LOD activities in other areas.

As usual, SWIB19 will be organized by the ZBW - German National Library of Economics / Leibniz Information Centre for Economics and the North Rhine-Westphalian Library Service Centre (hbz). The conference language is English.

Would you like to share your experiences working on an interesting service, research topic or project – not just what you did, but also how you did it? Would you like to offer a hands-on pre-conference tutorial or workshop on the afternoon of November 25?

We appreciate proposals on the following or related topics:

Projects & Applications

* integration of LOD into productive library applications
* authorities & knowledge organization systems (thesauri, classifications, ontologies)
* re-use of LOD (from libraries, Wikidata and other sources)
* presenting & visualizing LOD
* end-user environments for interaction with LOD (e.g. editing or annotation)
* crowdsourcing/gamification approaches involving LOD sources
* linked research & open science

Technology (focus on Open Source software)

* semantically enhanced data publication
* machine learning for automatic indexing & named entity recognition
* data transformation/integration/cleansing/enhancement/mapping/interlinking
* RDF validation
* data flow management
* read/write linked data
* linked data & library systems

Standards & Best Practices

* open web standards relevant for libraries
* application profiles & provenance information
* usable APIs
* providing updates & syncing data sources
* preservation & sustainability
* open data licensing

We are looking forward to receiving your proposals for presentations or workshops by *26 May 2019*. Please submit an abstract of 1000-1500 characters using our conference system at https://www.conftool.org/swib19. If you intend to present a specific software solution please include links to the source code repository and make sure it is openly licensed (https://opensource.org/licenses).
