Selection criteria: for papers submitted to the research track and the in-use track, we will select 4-6 best paper candidates based on reviewers' recommendation. During the conference, authors of the selected papers will propose extensions of their JIST2015 papers and get feedbacks from journal editors (and possibly the PC chairs of JIST2015).

 

********** 

The Joint International Semantic Technology Conference (JIST) is a regional federation of Semantic Technology related conferences. The mission of JIST is to bring together researchers in Semantic Technology research community and other areas of semantic related technologies to present their innovative research results or novel applications of semantic technologies. 


JIST 2015, under the theme “Semantics for Big Data”, solicits the submission of original research papers on Semantic Web and other semantic technologies, as well as papers on applications of semantic technologies. 

********** 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Description of an implemented application of semantic technology in a specific domain

- Description of concrete problems in specific application domains, for which semantic technology can provide a solution

- Analysis and evaluation of usability and uptake of semantic tools

Learned lessons and best practices from deploying and using an application or service based on semantic technology

- Assessment of costs and benefits of implementing, deploying, using, and managing semantic technology

- Analysis of risks and opportunities of using semantic technology in organizations with respect to their businesses and customers

- Pragmatics of using or deploying semantic technology in real-world scenarios

- Comparison of semantic technology with alternative approaches that use conventional or competing technologies

- Semantic technology in new application domains, including: eGovernment, eHealth, smart cities, Life Sciences, Sensor networks, Media and entertainment, Telecommunications, Cultural heritage, Financial services, Energy and utilities, Manufacturing, Digital libraries, cloud applications, Personal Information Management, etc.


* Submission 

Submissions to JIST 2015 in-use track should describe original, significant research on the semantic technologies. Submissions to JIST 2015 are expected to present their claimed contribution, with clear evidence to support their claims. All submissions will be critically reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. To assess submissions, reviewers will judge their relevance to semantic technologies, their originality, the technical soundness of their proposed approach and the readability of the submission. 

Submissions must be in PDF format, using the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Submissions must be no longer than *10* pages for the in-use track. Submissions that are less than 10 pages can be considered. However, when selecting best papers, we will give preference to those submissions that are more than 9 pages. JIST 2015 will not accept submissions that are under review for or have already been published in or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. Accepted papers will be published in an LNCS post-proceedings. 

Papers can be submitted electronically via https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jist2015.
