Call for Regular Technical Papers

The mission of the Joint International Semantic Technology Conference (JIST) is to bring together researchers in the Semantic Technology research community and other areas of semantic-related technologies to present their innovative research results or novel applications of semantic technologies.

Research Track

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 Graphs
- 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

In-Use Track

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

- Full paper submission: 23:59 (Hawaii Time), 8 August, 2017
- Notification of Acceptance: 8 September, 2017
- Camera-ready Deadline: 25 September, 2017

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. Submissions that exceed this limit 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 track(s) when you submit your paper(s).
