[Dbworld] CFP: WaSABi - 3rd Workshop on Semantic Web Enterprise Adoption and Best Practice <at> EKAW2014
CALL FOR PAPERS
for the 3rd Workshop on
* SEMANTIC WEB ENTERPRISE ADOPTION AND BEST PRACTICE *
Special Issue on Linked Data Lifecycle Management
(WaSABi SI 2014)
November 24th or 25th (tba), 2014, LinkÃ¶ping, Sweden
*** Paper submission deadline: September 19th, 2014 ***
There is a disconnect between the Semantic Web research and commercial practitioner communities, as
evidenced by the limited uptake of these very promising technologies for managing knowledge and
information in the broader industry. Researchers steadily improve upon modelling languages,
reasoners, and triple stores - but all too often, these improvements are driven not by real business
needs, but rather by the interests of researchers to solve interesting challenges. Conversely,
practitioners are oftentimes unaware of how existing Semantic Web technologies can help solve their
problems. Even in the cases that they do know about these Semantic Web solutions, most practitioners lack
the knowledge about tooling, scalability issues, design patterns, etc., that is required to
successfully apply them.
In order to bridge this gap, the WaSABi workshop provides an arena for discussing and developing ways of
applying Semantic Web technologies to real world knowledge modelling problems. The workshop aims to
develop a greater understanding of industrial organisations and their needs among academics (guiding
them in selecting problems to work on that are of direct relevance to practitioner partners), and to
discover or establish best practices for Semantic Web technology development and use, guiding
practitioners who want to apply these technologies.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
Authors are invited to consider the following (non exhaustive) list of topics:
* Semantic technologies for practical knowledge management
* Semantic tools supporting knowledge acquisition
* Surveys or case studies on Semantic Web technology in enterprise systems
* Comparative studies on the evolution of Semantic Web adoption
* Architectural overviews for Semantic Web systems
* Design patterns for semantic technology architectures and algorithms
* System development methods as applied to semantic technologies
* Semantic toolkits for enterprise applications
* Surveys on identified best practices based on Semantic Web technology
Of special interest are submissions that touch upon the issues discussed during the brainstorming
sessions of the previous WaSABi workshop:
* Linked Data lifecycle management: How can the longevity of key URIs and namespaces be guaranteed? Are
such resources too important infrastructure or community assets to leave to commercial actors? How does
one handle change management in a linked data context? How can software be analysed to find (potentially
dangerous) dependencies on distributed Semantic Web resources?
* Software development for the Semantic Web: Are traditional software engineering methods well suited to
the development of solutions for the Semantic Web? How can the complexity of the Semantic Web technology
stack be abstracted or simplified (e.g. ORM for RDF)? Can Semantic Web software components run unchanged
on cloud computing platforms, or how must they be adapted?
Additionally, industrial papers that focus on approaches, architectures, or tools demonstrating best
practices in Semantic Web technologies are particularly encouraged.
Submission criteria are as follows:
* Papers must adhere to the LNCS format guidelines (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0).
* Papers are limited to eight pages (including figures, tables and appendices).
* Papers are submitted in PDF format via EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wasabiekaw2014).
Accepted authors are given a presentation time slot of 15 minutes, with 5 minutes Q&A.
All accepted papers will be included in the WaSABi SI 2014 proceedings, to be published online via CEUR-WS.
All deadlines are unless otherwise stated 23:59 Hawaii time.
