1st Call for Papers: 4th Knowledge Engineering and Semantic Web
Conference (St. Petersburg, Russia, October 7-9, 2013)


KESW is a top Russian venue for discussing research issues related to
knowledge representation, Semantic Web, and Linked Data. Its aim is to
bring together researchers, practitioners, and educators, in
particular from ex-USSR, Eastern and Northern Europe, to present and
share ideas regarding Semantic Web, and popularize the area in these

Following the success in the previous years, we solicit original and
substantial contributions for this year's technical program. The
program will feature three tracks for research papers, industrial
papers, and posters/demos. Additionally, we welcome position papers to
discuss ideas on their early stages of development.

The sole language for all kinds of submissions this year is English.

For the research track we welcome novel papers addressing theoretical,
analytic or empirical aspects of research related to KR and Semantic

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Ontology management:
* Logical and philosophical foundations
* Merging and alignment, modularity
* Collaborative engineering and exchange
Knowledge Representation and Reasoning:
* Knowledge acquisition and management
* Theory of automated reasoning
* Practical reasoning algorithms
* Applications

Linked Data:
* Publishing and integration
* Querying
* Scalability aspects

Semantic Databases:
* RDF and other DBs for Linked Data
* Ontologies and databases
* Query answering

Semantic Web Services
Semantic Search
Human Computer Interaction
Semantic Social Web
Trust, Security, and Privacy
Knowledge Visualization
Semantic Web in Education

For the industry track we solicit papers that describe practical
experience of using Semantic Web or KR-related technologies in
practical projects. Descriptions of industrial deployments and
production usage are especially invited but papers with preliminary
experience are also welcome (as long as the authors are able to
demonstrate, preferably with some quantitative data, practical utility
of Semantic Web technologies in a particular domain).

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Applications of Semantic Web technologies in various industrial domains.
* Applications of Semantic Web technologies in community, government
and semantic smart city.
* Industrial trends related to the usage of Linked Data and Semantic
Web technologies.
* Description and analysis of concrete problems and user requirements
for applying Semantic Web technologies in specific industry domains.
* Analysis and evaluation of usability, assessment of pros and cons of
using Semantic Web technologies in real-world scenarios including
models of investment justifications (ROI).

P&D is an opportunity to present research through an informal
discussion or presentation. We invite submissions relevant to the
above topics. Both posters and demos may complement submissions to the
research and industrial tracks. Furthermore, we explicitly invite you
to submit a poster or a demo if your research or industry paper has
been accepted.

All authors will be required to pre-submit abstracts of their papers.
Both papers and abstracts should be submitted via Easychair at:


Size restrictions are as follows:

Research papers: no more than 15 pages
Industrial papers: no more than 10 pages
Demo descriptions: no more than 8 pages
Posters and position papers: no more than 2 pages.

Submissions must be prepared according to the Springer LNCS format.

Research/industry track abstract submission: May 25th, 2013
Research/industry track paper submission: May 31st, 2013
Author notification: July 1st, 2013
Poster/demo/position paper submission: July 15th, 2013

The proceedings will be published in the Springer's Communications in
Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series. The papers will be
abstracted/indexed by DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical
Reviews, SCImago, and Scopus.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the
conference and present the paper there.

Same as last year, the conference will be preceded by the Semantic Web
and Linked Data school, for which the tentative dates are Oct 1-5.
School-specific announcements will be made later.
