Call For Papers
SWIB conference (Semantic Web in Libraries) is an annual conference, being held for the 11th time, focusing on Linked Open Data (LOD) in libraries and related organizations. It is well established as an event where IT staff, developers, librarians, and researchers from all over the world meet and mingle and learn from each other. The topics of talks and workshops at SWIB revolve around opening data, linking data and creating tools and software for LOD production scenarios. These areas of focus are supplemented by presentations of research projects in applied sciences, industry applications and LOD activities in other areas.

As usual, SWIB19 will be organized by the the ZBW - Leibniz Information Centre for Economics and the North Rhine-Westphalian Library Service Centre (hbz). The conference language is English.

Would you like to share your experiences working on an interesting service, research topic or project � not just what you did, but also how you did it? Would you like to offer a hands-on pre-conference tutorial or workshop on the afternoon of November 25?

We appreciate proposals on the following or related topics:

Projects & Applications

    integration of LOD into productive library applications

    re-use of LOD (from libraries, Wikidata and other sources)
    presenting & visualizing LOD
    end-user environments for interaction with LOD (e.g. editing or annotation)
    crowdsourcing/gamification approaches involving LOD sources
    linked research & open science

Technology (focus on Open Source software)

    semantically enhanced data publication
    machine learning for automatic indexing & named entity recognition
    data transformation/integration/cleansing/enhancement/mapping/interlinking
    RDF validation
