Call For Papers
ESWC is one of the key academic conferences to present research results and new developments in the area of the Semantic Web. For its 14th edition, ESWC will be back in Portotoz, Slovenia from Sunday 28th May to Thursday 1st June 2017.

The goal of the Semantic Web is to create a network of data and knowledge that interconnect across the Web, and where both content and its meaning are manipulated by processes, services and applications. This endeavour naturally draws from and impacts on many disciplines of computing (and connected areas), related to data and information management, knowledge engineering, machine intelligence, human knowledge and languages, software services and applications. We are therefore seeking contribution to research at the intersection of the Semantic Web and these areas, as described in the 9 core research tracks of the conferences, as well as demonstration of the impact of Semantic Web Technologies in concrete applications and in industry, through the “In Use and Industrial” Track.

In addition to the main focus on advances in Semantic Web research and technologies, ESWC 2017 is looking to broaden the Semantic Web research community’s understanding and focus on current key areas directly affecting the development of the Semantic Web, namely Multilinguality and Transparency. The conference therefore includes 2 additional research tracks focusing on these specific aspects.

In order to manage data available in multiple languages, a semantic normalization and reconciliation of content across languages and cultures is needed, enabling the Semantic Web to reach beyond the borders of the traditional Web and into the everyday life of people around the world. Semantic technologies provide a means to improve the management of multilingual content. The introduction of this theme integrates well with and builds upon last year’s special track on Smart Cities, Urban and Geospatial Data, integrating data from all kinds of aspects of the life of a city.

Also building on both that track and last year’s other special track on trust and privacy, transparency is a key part of Open Government Data initiatives. Transparency is concerned with relationships between members of the public and both commercial and authoritative entities, with objectives varying from enabling trust to ensuring accountability. Many aspects of Semantic Web technologies can be employed to integrate, interpret and exploit multiple pieces of information for use by the public.
