Journal on Data Semantics
Call For Papers
With the Web serving as a huge worldwide data repository, issues related to data semantics (familiar to database modelers since the 1970s) have again become of paramount importance. As Web data comes from heterogeneous, possibly unknown and mostly uncontrolled sources, it is anything but obvious how the information beyond the most basic factual data can be correctly understood. The same concern applies to data that is exchanged between systems that need to agree on its meaning in order to avoid dangerous misunderstandings. Semantic elicitation and the availability of appropriate semantic metadata are the key to the meaningful use of information in modern distributed environments.

The Journal on Data Semantics (JoDS) provides an international high-quality publication venue for researchers whose themes cover issues related to information semantics. Its target domain ranges from theories supporting the formal definition of semantic content to innovative domain-specific applications of semantic knowledge, thus covering work done on conceptual modeling, databases, Semantic Web, information systems, workflow and process modeling, ontologies, business intelligence, interoperability, mobile information services, data warehousing, knowledge representation and reasoning, and artificial intelligence.

Topics of relevance to this journal include (but are not limited to):

    Conceptualization, knowledge representation and reasoning
    Conceptual data, process, workflow, and event modeling
    Provenance, evolution and change management
    Context and context-dependent representations and processing
    Multi-model and multi-paradigm approaches
    Mappings, transformations, reverse engineering and semantic elicitation
    Semantic interoperability, semantic mediators and metadata management
    Ontology models and languages, ontology-driven applications
    Ontology, schema, data and process integration, reconciliation and alignment
    Web semantics and semi-structured data
    Integrity description and handling
    Semantics in data mining and knowledge extraction
    Semantics in business intelligence, analytics and data visualization
    Spatial, temporal, multimedia and multimodal semantics
    Semantic mobility data and services for mobile users
    Supporting tools and applications of semantic-driven approaches

Submissions may qualify as research papers, survey articles, industry papers, position papers, or short communications, and should contain original material that has not been submitted or published elsewhere.
