to any of these contributions.
Just go to OpenReview, log in, and pick the contribution you want to review.
The ISWC2017 workshop on Decentralizing the Semantic Web welcomes novel contributions on intelligent clients, decentralized applications, and enabling technologies. Consult the detailed topic list for inspiration.
You can share three kinds of contributions:
client challenge demos,
and vision statements.
Share your work with us before 28 July 2017
through the OpenReview platform.
DeSemWeb research articles provide creative solutions to problems in the domain of intelligent clients, decentralized applications, and/or enabling technologies, covering one or more of the workshop’s topics.
Research articles bring scientifically motivated insights and should:
- clearly state the tackled problem upfront in the abstract and introduction
- explain the differences with related work
- evaluate the contribution through a prototype, use case, or experiments
We recommend to target 6,000–8,000 words (12–16 pages).
Intelligent client challenge
We challenge authors to build an interactive demonstration of an intelligent Web client that runs mostly or exclusively in a mobile or desktop browser. Such a client could, for instance, find information on the Web or execute tasks. Bonus points for natural language interactions through a chatbot or speech-to-text engine.
Please share a link to your demonstration or video, accompanied by a description of around 1,000–4,000 words (2–8 pages).
Share your vision for the future of the Semantic Web, with a focus on clients and/or decentralization, addressing current issues, relevant questions, future directions, … Does the Semantic Web need decentralization—and does decentralization need the Semantic Web? Contributions on any of the topics are welcome.
We recommend to target 1,000–4,000 words (2–8 pages).
Authors can choose the best way to express their work, such as HTML or PDF. Given the scope of the workshop, we encourage the usage of native Web technologies and especially welcome HTML contributions with semantic annotations. Authors looking for practical advice might find the HTML guide helpful.
The DeSemWeb workshop series endorses the Linked Research principles. You might like to check its various aspects (unique identifiers, resources, feedback, …) and try to apply relevant ones to your contribution.
Please share your DeSemWeb contribution before the deadline through the OpenReview peer review platform.
You can—and are encouraged to—publish your contribution on the Web while it is under review.
Accepted contributions will be published as CEUR-WS proceedings and need to be presented by one of the authors at the workshop.
