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 the following special track:

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
- Modeling of semantics for Knowledge Graph
- Development of Knowledge Graph (Ontology, Linked Data)
