Submissions via Easychair:
As in the previous years, SEMANTiCS’16 proceedings are expected to be
published by ACM ICP.

The annual SEMANTiCS conference is the meeting place for professionals
who make semantic computing work, who understand its benefits and
encounter its limitations. Every year, SEMANTiCS attracts information
managers, IT-architects, software engineers and researchers from
organisations ranging from NPOs, through public administrations to the
largest companies in the world. Attendees learn from industry experts
and top researchers about emerging trends and topics in the fields of
semantic software, enterprise data, linked data & open data strategies,
methodologies in knowledge modelling and text & data analytics. The
SEMANTiCS community is highly diverse; attendees have responsibilities
in interlinking areas like knowledge management, technical
documentation, e-commerce, big data analytics, enterprise search,
document management, business intelligence and enterprise vocabulary
The success of last year’s conference in Vienna with more than 280
attendees from 22 countries proves that SEMANTiCS 2016 will continue a
long tradition of bringing together colleagues from around the world.
There will be presentations on industry implementations, use case
prototypes, best practices, panels, papers and posters to discuss
semantic systems in birds-of-a-feather sessions as well as informal
settings. SEMANTICS addresses problems common among information
managers, software engineers, IT-architects and various specialist
departments working to develop, implement and/or evaluate semantic
software systems.

The SEMANTiCS program is a rich mix of technical talks, panel
discussions of important topics and presentations by people who make
things work - just like you. In addition, attendees can network with
experts in a variety of fields. These relationships provide great value
to organisations as they encounter subtle technical issues in any stage
of implementation. The expertise gained by SEMANTiCS attendees has a
long-term impact on their careers and organisations. These factors make
SEMANTiCS for our community the major industry related event across Europe.

hot topics:
* Data Quality Management
* Data Science (Data Mining, Machine Learning, Network Analytics)

#Research / Innovation Papers
The Research & Innovation track at SEMANTiCS welcomes the submission of
papers on novel scientific research and/or innovations relevant to the
topics of the conference. Submissions must be original and must not have
been submitted for publication elsewhere. The Research & Innovation
track at SEMANTiCS is a single-blind review process (author names are
visible to reviewers, reviewers stay anonymous). The submitted abstract
and the topics are leveraged to find adequate reviewers for submitted
papers. Please write an email to
[hidden email], if you have any questions.

Papers should follow the ACM ICPS guidelines for formatting and must not
exceed 8 pages in length for full papers and 4 pages for short papers,
including references and optional appendices. The layout templates can
be found here: All accepted
full papers and short papers will be published in the digital library of
the ACM ICP Series. Research & Innovation papers should be submitted
through EasyChair at: Papers
must be submitted in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) format.
Other formats will not be accepted. For the camera-ready version, the
source files (Latex, WordPerfect, Word) will also be needed.
