SEMANTiCS’18 proceedings will be published as Open Access by Elsevier
Procedia Computer Science.

The annual SEMANTiCS conference is the meeting place for professionals
who make semantic computing work, understand its benefits, and encounter
its limitations. Every year, SEMANTiCS attracts information managers,
IT-architects, software engineers and researchers from a wide spectrum
of organisations ranging from SMEs and non-profit organizations, to
public administration bodies, 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, including
enterprise data, linked data & open data strategies, methodologies in
knowledge modelling and text & data analytics. The SEMANTiCS community
is highly diverse; attendees routinely interlinking areas such as
knowledge management, technical documentation, e-commerce, big data
analysis, enterprise search, document management, business intelligence
and enterprise vocabulary management.

Given the success of last year’s conference in Amsterdam, which
attracted more than 370 attendees from 28 countries, SEMANTiCS 2018 is
bound to continue a long tradition of bringing together a community 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 a broad range of regular 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 evaluate
semantic software systems.
The SEMANTiCS program will provide a rich mix of technical talks, panel
discussions on emerging topics and presentations by people who make
things work - just like you. In addition, attendees will have a unique
opportunity to network with experts in a variety of fields. These
relationships provide great value to organisations as they encounter
technical challenges 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 the key event across
Europe for a diverse community of industry leaders and academic experts
alike.
Following the success of the previous year, this year’s SEMANTiCS will
also again feature a special Data Science track, which offer a unique
opportunity to bring together researchers and practitioners interested
in the intersection of Semantic Technologies, Linked Data and Data
Science and provide a platform to present their ideas and discuss the
most important scientific, technical and socio-economic challenges in
this emerging field.

SEMANTiCS 2018 particularly welcomes submissions on the following key
topics:
*Web Semantics, Linked (Open) Data & schema.org
*Corporate Knowledge Graphs
*Knowledge Integration and Language Technologies
*Data Quality Management
*Economics of Data, Data Services and Data Ecosystems

# Vocarnival
Bootstrap your new Vocabulary project: At the carnival you can present
your ideas and early stage vocabs to find the right people to get the
Vocab discussion going. For this event we use a very open definition of
what a vocabulary is. Ontologies, classifications, thesauri, concept and
metadata schemes, whatever their format, in RDF or not, are all welcome.
We require at least a project website. Details to follow.

The detailed calls will be available on the conference website
