Track 2

Track 2: Semantics and Knowledge Management


- Laura Po, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy
- Raquel Trillo-Lado, University of Zaragoza, Spain

The track "Semantics and Knowledge Management" aims to tackle research problems and practical applications for the Semantic Web and Knowledge Management. The goal is to share knowledge and novel approaches in the implementation of semantic technologies across diverse types of information environments and applications.
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit original work on the theoretical, technical and practical issues of Semantic Web, Knowledge Management and its Applications. We also encourage contributions to research at the intersection of Semantic Web and other scientific disciplines, in particular, the Internet of Things (IoT), edge computing and data streaming.
Submissions to the research track should describe original, significant research, and are expected to provide some principled means of evaluation. Specifically, all papers should include evaluations of the approaches described in the paper. We strongly encourage evaluations that are repeatable and to provide links to the data sets, tools, source code, queries and other resources needed to repeat the experimental evaluation.
