Third International Workshop on Semantic Web for Cultural Heritage (SW4CH
In conjunction with ESWC 2018, June 3-4, Heraklion, Crete, Greece


- New deadline for paper submission: 16 March
- The Semantic Web Journal (http://www.semantic-web-journal.net/) has
accepted our application for a special issue on Semantic Web solutions for
Cultural Heritage. Selected papers from SW4CH will be invited to submit
extended versions of their papers to the special issue, for which there
will be a separate review process.


Cultural Heritage (CH) is gaining a lot of attention from academic and
industry perspectives. Scientific researchers, organisations, associations,
and schools are looking for appropriate technologies for annotating,
integrating, sharing, accessing, analysing and visualising the mine of
cultural collections and, more generally, cultural data, taking also into
account the profiles and preferences of end users. Several national and
European research and innovation project have been launched to these
directions. A fundamental challenge that many of these projects deal with
is how to make Cultural Heritage data, which is typically made available in
diverse languages and formats, mutually interoperable, so that it can be
searched, linked, and presented in a harmonised way across the boundaries
of a Cultural Heritage institution. Early solutions were based on the
syntactic or structural level of data, without leveraging the rich semantic
structures underlying the content. During the last decades, solutions based
on the principles and technologies of the Semantic Web have been proposed
to explicitly represent the semantics of data sources and make both their
content and their semantics machine operable and interoperable. In
parallel, resources such as the CIDOC-CRM ecosystem have matured. As
institutions bring their data to the Semantic Web level, the tasks of
integrating, sharing, analysing and visualising data are now to be
conceived in this new and very rich framework.

The aim of the SW4CH workshop is to bring together Computer Scientists,
Data Scientists and Digital Humanities researchers and practitioners
involved in the development or deployment of Semantic Web solutions for
Cultural Heritage. The goal is to provide a forum, where people from these
fields will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences, present
state of the art of realisations and outcomes of relevant projects, and
discuss related challenges and solutions.


We seek original and high quality submissions related (but not limited) to
one or more of the following topic areas:

- SW vocabularies and ontologies for CH
- SW-based interaction with CH data
- SW applications for CH
- SW techniques, services and architectures of CH

A more detailed list of topics is available at the workshop website:


- Paper submission:     16 March 2018
- Notification:         13 April 2018
- Camera ready version: 27 April 2018
- Workshop:             3-4 June 2018


Submitted papers must not exceed 10 pages in the LNCS format and must
comply with the LNCS formatting guidelines available at
http://www.springer.com/series/7899. Papers will be refereed and accepted
on the basis of their scientific merit, originality and relevance to the
workshop. Each paper will be reviewed by at least two Program Committee
Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF, using this link:


Accepted papers will be published in a CEUR-WS volume. Selected papers may
also be included in the supplementary proceedings of ESWC 2018, which will
appear in the Springer LNCS series.
