Call for Posters & Demos
The annual SEMANTiCS conference is the meeting place for professionals who make semantic computing work, who understand its benefits and encounter its limitations. Every year, SEMANTiCS attracts information managers, IT-architects, software engineers and researchers from organisations ranging from SMEs, through non-profit organizations, public administrations to the largest companies in the world. Attendees learn from industry experts and top researchers about emerging trends and topics in the fields of semantic software, enterprise data, linked data & open data strategies, methodologies in knowledge modelling and text & data analytics. The SEMANTiCS community is highly diverse; attendees have responsibilities in interlinking areas such as knowledge management, technical documentation, e-commerce, big data analysis, enterprise search, document management, business intelligence and enterprise vocabulary management.
The success of last year’s conference in Leipzig with more than 302 attendees from 30 countries proves that SEMANTiCS 2017 will continue a long tradition of bringing together colleagues from around the world. There will be presentations on industry implementations, use case prototypes, best practices, panels, papers and posters to discuss semantic systems in birds-of-a-feather sessions as well as informal settings. SEMANTiCS addresses problems common among information managers, software engineers, IT-architects and various specialist departments working to develop, implement and evaluate semantic software systems.
The SEMANTiCS program is a rich mix of technical talks, panel discussions of important topics and presentations by people who make things work - just like you. In addition, attendees can network with experts in a variety of fields. These relationships provide great value to organisations as they encounter subtle technical issues in any stage of implementation. The expertise gained by SEMANTiCS attendees has a long-term impact on their careers and organisations. These factors make SEMANTiCS for our community the major industry related event across Europe.
This year, SEMANTiCS features a special Data Science track, which is an opportunity to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in data science and its intersection with Linked Data to present their ideas and discuss the most important scientific, technical and socio-economical challenges of this emerging field.
SEMANTiCS 2017 will especially welcome submissions for the following hot topics:
Special Track (please check appropriate topic in submission system)
Following the success of previous years, we welcome any submissions related but not limited to the following ‘horizontal’ (research) and ‘vertical’ (industries) topics:

Posters & Demos Track
The Posters & Demonstrations Track invites innovative work in progress, late-breaking research and innovation results, and smaller contributions in all fields related to the broadly understood Semantic Web. These include submissions on innovative applications with impact on end users such as demos of solutions that users may test or that are yet in the conceptual phase, but are worth discussing, and also applications, use cases or pieces of code that may attract developers and potential research or business partners. This also concerns new data sets made publicly available.
The informal setting of the Posters & Demonstrations Track encourages participants to present innovations to the research community, business users and find new partners or clients and engage in discussions about the presented work. Such discussions can be invaluable inputs for the future work of the presenters, while offering conference participants an effective way to broaden their knowledge of the emerging research trends and to network with other researchers.
Poster and demo submissions should consist of a paper that describe the work, its contribution to the field or novelty aspects. Submissions must be original and must not have been submitted for publication elsewhere.
Accepted papers will be published in HTML (RASH) in CEUR and, as such, the camera-ready version of the papers will be required in HTML, following the poster and demo guidelines (https://goo.gl/3BEpV7). Papers should be submitted through EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=semantics2017 and should be less than 2200 words in length (equivalent to 4 pages), including the whole content of the paper.
For the initial reviewing phase, authors may submit a PDF version of the paper following any layout. After acceptance, authors are required to submit the camera-ready in HTML (RASH).
Submissions will be reviewed by experienced and knowledgeable researchers and practitioners; each submission will receive detailed feedback. For demos, we encourage authors to include links enabling the reviewers to test the application or review the component.
