The research track of ESWC 2019 is looking for novel and significant research contributions addressing theoretical, analytical and empirical aspects of the Semantic Web. We also encourage contributions to research at the intersection of Semantic Web and other scientific disciplines. Submissions to the research track should describe original, significant research on the Semantic Web, and are expected to provide some principled means of evaluation. Specifically, all papers should include evaluations of the approaches described in the paper. We strongly encourage evaluations that are repeatable. We also strongly encourage papers that provide links to: the data sets, source code, queries and other resources.
Based on previous years submissions, this year we are setting up five research tracks that reflect some of the main research areas of the Semantic Web and its intersection with other scientific disciplines:
- Ontologies and Reasoning
- Linked Data
- Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, and Information Retrieval
- Semantic Data Management and Data Infraestructures
- Social and Human Aspects of the Semantic Web
In addition to this five research tracks ESWC 2019 is looking to broaden the Semantic Web research community’s understanding and focus on problems and areas that directly impact the development of the Semantic Web. Thus, the 16th edition of ESWC 2019 is looking for contributions from the community on additional research tracks (see link)
Delineation from the other Tracks
We strongly recommend that prospective authors carefully check the calls of the other main tracks of the conference in order to identify the optimal track for their submission.
Papers that describe the use of semantic web technologies in practical settings should be submitted to the in-use track.
Authors who want to present an interesting industry application but who do not want to submit a full paper should submit to the industry track.
Papers describing concrete resources (datasets, ontologies, vocabularies, annotated corpora, workflows, knowledge graphs, evaluation benchmarks, etc.) should be submitted to the resources track.
Papers in this track will be reviewed according to the following criteria:
- Relevance and impact of the research contributions
- Design and execution of the evaluation of the work
- Clarity and quality of presentation
- Grounding in the literature
Important dates and submission guidelines are specified here
Authors will have the opportunity to submit a rebuttal to the reviews to clarify questions posed by program committee members.
