Submissions via Easychair:

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.

SEMANTiCS 2016 will especially welcome submissions for the following hot
* Data Quality Management
* Data Science (Data Mining, Machine Learning, Network Analytics)
* Semantics on the Web, Linked (Open) Data & schema.org
* Corporate Knowledge Graphs
* Knowledge Integration and Language Technologies

Posters & Demos Track
The Posters & Demonstrations Track invites innovative work in progress,
late-breaking research and innovation results, and smaller contributions
in all fields related to the broadly understood Semantic Web. These
include submissions on innovative applications with impact on end users
such as demos of solutions that users may test or that are yet in the
conceptual phase, but are worth discussing, and also applications or
pieces of code that may attract developers and potential research or
business partners. This also concerns new data sets made publicly available.

The informal setting of the Posters & Demonstrations Track encourages
participants to present innovations to the research community, business
users and find new partners or clients and engage in discussions about
the presented work. Such discussions can be invaluable inputs for the
future work of the presenters, while offering conference 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 paper of 1-4 pages that
describe the work, its contribution to the field or novelty aspects.
Submissions must be original and must not have been submitted for
publication elsewhere. All submissions should follow the ACM ICPS
guidelines for formatting. The layout templates can be found here:
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates. The best
posters (5-6 papers) will be published in the digital library of the ACM
ICP Series. The other papers will be published in the
http://ceur-ws.org/. Papers should be submitted through EasyChair
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=semantics2016research). 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, Word) will also be needed.
Submissions will be reviewed by experienced and knowledgeable
researchers and practitioners; each submission will receive a detailed
feedback. For demos, it would be beneficial to include also links
enabling the reviewers testing the application or reviewing the component.
