(www.i-semantics.at<http://www.i-semantics.at/<UrlBlockedError.aspx>>) is the 
9th International Conference on Semantic Systems.

The conference brings together both researchers and practitioners in the areas 
of Semantic Technologies, Linked Data and the Semantic Web in order to showcase 
cutting edge research, demonstrators and applications for the Corporate and 
Social Semantic Web.

I-SEMANTICS 2013 will also hold the “I-CHALLENGE”, which brings to you the 6th 
Linked Data Cup (formerly Triplification Challenge), the Best Paper Award and 
the Best Poster Award.

In order to foster synergies among the research fields of knowledge discovery, 
social computing,  and semantic technologies I-SEMANTICS Conference will be 
held together with the I-KNOW Conference, the 13th International Conference on 
Knowledge Technologies 


As a conference aiming to bring together science and industry, I-SEMANTICS 
encourages scientific research and application-oriented contributions in the 
field of Semantic Technologies, Semantic Web and Linked Data. The topics of

I-SEMANTICS Submission Information

All accepted full papers and short papers of I-SEMANTICS 2013 will be published 
in the digital library of the ACM ICP series.

Please note: Poster and Demo papers are planned to be published within CEUR-WS.

Research/Application Papers

Research papers report on novel research and/or applications relevant to the 
topics of the conference. Submissions must be original and must not have been 
submitted for publication elsewhere. The number of pages of research papers is 
limited to 8 pages for full papers and 4 pages for short papers including 
references and an optional appendix.

Full and short papers should follow the ACM ICPS guidelines for formatting 
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates) and must be 
submitted via the online submission system available at the conference website 
as PDF documents (other formats will not be accepted). For the camera-ready 
version, we will also need the source files (Latex, Word Perfect, Word).

Important Dates (Research & Application & Challenge Papers)

●     Abstract Submission Deadline: March 25, 2013

●     Paper Submission Deadline: April 1, 2013

●     Notification of Acceptance: May 3, 2013

Posters, Demos & PhD Track

The Posters & Demonstrations Track and the PhD Track offer an opportunity to 
present late-breaking research results, smaller contributions, and innovative 
work in progress.

The informal setting of the Posters & Demonstrations Track encourages 
presenters and participants to engage in discussions about the presented work. 
Such discussions can be invaluable inputs for the future work of the 
presenters, while offering participants an effective way to broaden their 
knowledge of the emerging research trends and to network with other 
researchers. Poster and demo submissions should consist of a 3-4 page 
description that clearly describes the approach. Submissions to this track must 
be in the Springer LNCS format 
(http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs/lncs+authors), i.e. please do NOT use 
the ACM template here.

The objective of the PhD Track is to provide doctoral students with a forum to 
present and discuss their research projects with experienced researchers 
(“mentors”) and fellow students. It addresses PhD students at an early stage of 
their doctoral studies, who want to receive feedback from internationally 
recognized researchers. Ideally, participants will have a well-defined problem 
statement and precise questions to discuss with their mentor. Applicants should 
be PhD students (from any country), conducting ongoing research in the areas of 
semantic technologies, Linked Data and the Semantic Web.

PhD track submissions should consist of up to 1.500 words and contain the 

●     Name, affiliation and contact details of the PhD student

●     Name(s) of the supervisor(s)

●     Summary of the research project, including:

○     Problem: research questions, motivation, state of the art and relevance 
for the fields of Semantic Technologies, Linked Data and Semantic Web

○     Approach: (planned) approach and methodology

○     Current status / timeline: current status of the work and any results 
that have already been reached plus outlook to future work

●     A list of key questions that the PhD student wants to discuss during the 

Submissions will be reviewed by experienced researchers; each submission will 
receive detailed feedback. The program committee will select participants who 
will give a short presentation about their research project during the 
I-SEMANTICS PhD Track. Main focus of the event is on discussion, support and 
solving open questions.

Important Dates (Posters & Demo Papers & PhD Track)

●      Submission Deadline: May 10, 2013

●      Notification of Acceptance: June 17, 2013

●      Camera Ready Paper: July 18, 2013


For the second time in 2013 we will bring to you the I-CHALLENGE, consisting of 
the Best Research/Application Paper Award, the Best Poster Award and the Linked 
Data Cup. While the best paper will be selected by the program committee, the 
Best Poster will be voted by the conference audience via online voting. (Please 
expect more details for all the Best Paper Awards in the weeks to come.)

Information on the Linked Data Cup will be available soon.
