Call for Workshop Proposals

JIST 2017 cordially invites you to submit workshop proposals to be held in conjunction with the conference. The purpose of a workshop is to provide an opportunity for participants for in-depth discussion of current and emerging topics of the semantic technologies. Ideally a workshop should foster interactions between different communities within the scope of JIST. The organizer of an accepted workshop will be responsible for the reviewing process, call for papers, publicity website, and proceeding publication of the workshop.
