The 7th Joint International Semantic Technology Conference (JIST 2017)


November 10-12, 2017 (Fri - Sun)
Gold Coast, Australia

The mission of the Joint International Semantic Technology Conference
(JIST) is to
bring together researchers in Semantic Technology research community and
areas of semantic related technologies to present their innovative research
results or
novel applications of semantic technologies.

2. Recommendation to SCI Journals

A number of best papers accepted at JIST 2017 will be invited to present at
Meet the Editor session of SCI indexed journals, including International
on Semantic Web and Information Systems (IJSWIS), for fast-track
publication in
a special issue in these journals. Up to five papers will be selected and
An indicative timeline is given below:
- Manuscript revision proposal: mid November 2017
- Submission of revised manuscript: mid January 2018
- Notification of acceptance: mid March 2018
- Publication: second half 2018


3. Call for Papers

Call for Workshop Proposals

Workshop proposals submission are due on July 1, 2017.
For details please check Call for Workshop Proposal

Call for Research Track Papers

JIST 2017 research track solicits submissions of original research work on
technologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Ontology and reasoning
- Knowledge Graph
- Linked Data
- Big Data and semantics, exchange and integration
- Data streams and the Internet of Things
- Machine learning and information extraction on the Semantic Web
- Semantic Web services and processes
- Trust, privacy, and security on the Semantic Web
- Social Semantic Web
- Natural language processing and semantics
- Semantic multimedia
- Novel applications of semantic technologies

Call for In-Use Track Papers

Quality shared resources such as public ontologies, datasets and software
are highly
valuable to the research community, hence, JIST 2017 in-use track also
calls for
submissions of public, shared resources of interest to the Semantic Web

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Description of an implemented application
- Description of concrete problems
- Analysis and evaluation of semantic tools
- Lessons learned and best practices
- Linked Data, open data and vocabularies in production use
- Semantic resources
- Semantic technology in new application domains

Call for Special Track Papers

The philosophy behind Special Tracks is to facilitate the proactive
of researchers from certain fields or communities who have linked the
technology with their research fields.

Special Tracks accept 8-page short papers that will be reviewed in the same
as the Research Track papers and will be included in the Proceedings if

In JIST2017, we have a special track on Semantic Processing for Knowledge

Semantic technologies such as Linked Data promote publication of various
data and
knowledge on the web with semantic links among them. They form huge sized
bases called Knowledge Graphs in a large variety of domains. An important
feature of Knowledge Graphs is their rich semantics. This special track
focuses on
semantics of Knowledge Graphs, especially on how to use their semantics
practical applications.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Semantic processing and reasoning for Knowledge Graph
- Application using semantics of Knowledge Graph
- Modelling of semantics for Knowledge Graph
- Development of Knowledge Graph (Ontology, Linked Data)

Call for Poster & Demo Papers

JIST 2017 cordially invites you to submit Poster and Demo papers.
For details please check Call for Poster and Demo Papers


4. Submission

Submissions to JIST 2017 should describe original, significant research on
technologies. JIST 2017 will not accept submissions that are under review
or have already been published in or accepted for publication in a journal
another conference. Submissions to JIST 2017 are expected to present their
contribution, with clear evidence to support their claims. All submissions
will be
critically reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. To
submissions, reviewers will judge their relevance to semantic technologies,
originality, the technical soundness of their proposed approach and the
of the submission.

JIST 2017 submissions are not anonymous.

Submissions must be in PDF format, using the style of the Springer
format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Submissions must be no
than *16* pages for the Research and In-Use Tracks, and no longer than *8*
for the Special Tracks. Submissions that exceed these limits may be
rejected without
review. Submissions to the In-Use Track that are less than 16 pages can be

Accepted papers will be published in an LNCS proceedings. At least one
author of
each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper

Papers can be submitted electronically via
Please select the corresponding track(s) when you submit your paper(s).
