14th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2015)
USA October 11 - 15, 2015
Deadline: Abstract April 23, Full paper submission April 30
ISWC is the premier international forum for presenting research results on
the Intelligent Processing of Data on the Web. ISWC brings together
researchers from different areas of computer science, such as artificial
intelligence, databases, distributed systems and information retrieval who
aim at the development and use of novel technologies and techniques for
accessing, interpreting, processing and using information on the web in a
more effective way.
We solicit the submission of original research papers for ISWC 2015's
research track, dealing with analytical, theoretical, empirical, and
practical aspects of all these areas (including not only the ones that use
the RDF-based stack but also those that use other representations).
Submissions to the research track should describe original and significant
research in any of these areas.
To maintain the high level of quality and impact of the ISWC series, all
papers will be reviewed by at least three program committee members and one
senior program committee member. To assess papers, reviewers will judge
their originality and significance for further advances in any of these
areas, as well as the technical soundness of the proposed approaches and
the overall readability of the submitted papers. We also encourage authors
to include pointers to any additional material that supports the scientific
claims made in their papers (e.g., extended technical reports, source code,
datasets, links to applications).
Authors should also read carefully the calls for the other tracks, and
consider submitting to the most appropriate track. In the interest of a
coherent program the track chairs may suggest moving a submission to a
different track of the conference, with authors consent. However, multiple
submissions of the same paper to different tracks are not acceptable.

Processing and Artificial Intelligence techniques for the Semantic Web
- Searching and querying the Semantic Web
- Knowledge representation and reasoning on the Web
- Cleaning, quality assurance, and provenance of Semantic Web data,
services, and processes
- Semantic Web data analysis
- Ontology-based data access and integration/exchange on the Web
- Supporting multi-linguality in the Semantic Web
- User Interfaces and interaction with semantics and data on the Web
- Information visualization of Semantic Web data

===== Review Criteria =====
Papers in this track will be reviewed according to the following criteria:
- Relevance and impact of the research contributions to the area
- Design and execution of the evaluation of the work
- Clarity and presentation
===== Submission =====
Pre-submission of abstracts is a strict requirement. All papers and
abstracts have to be submitted electronically via
All research submissions must be in English, and no longer than 16 pages.
Papers that exceed this limit will be rejected without review. Submissions
must be in PDF formatted in the style of the Springer Publications format
for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). For details on the LNCS
style, see Springer’s Author Instructions. ISWC-2015 submissions are not
We also encourage authors to include pointers to any additional material
that supports the scientific claims made in their papers (e.g., extended
technical reports, source code, datasets, links to applications).
Authors of accepted papers will be required to provide semantic annotations
for the abstract of their submission, which will be made available on the
conference web site. Details will be provided at the time of acceptance.
Accepted papers will be distributed to conference attendees and also
published by Springer in the printed conference proceedings, as part of the
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. At least one author of each
accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper there.
===== Prior Publication And Multiple Submissions =====
ISWC 2015 will not accept research papers that, at the time of submission,
are under review for or have already been published in or accepted for
publication in a journal or another conference.
The conference organizers may share information on submissions with other
venues to ensure that this rule is not violated.
