7th International Workshop on

Data Engineering meets the Semantic Web (DESWeb)

In conjunction with ICDE 2016, Helsinki, Finland

Regular / Vision Papers

The Database community has increasingly become interested in the Semantic Web, the vision of which has become an established reality through a series of decade-long methodological advances. Given the recent explosion of structured data available on the Web and associated challenges with respect to what is commonly referred to as the 3V's (Volume, Variety and Velocity), the two communities form excellent candidates for benefiting from each other.

The 7th version of the DESWeb workshop will be held in Helsinki, Finland, and will be co-located with the annual ICDE conference (as in past installations). The DESWeb workshop will provide a lively forum that aims to bring together researchers from the Database and Semantic Web communities, in order to highlight their common interests and promote mutual advancement and cross-fertilization.

We invite submissions of research results and ongoing projects (short papers of up to 6 pages, IEEE format) in the conjunction of these thematic areas. We also welcome submissions on visions and challenges (of up to 3 pages, IEEE format) focusing on radical and novel ideas rather than established approaches, as well as difficult and open problems rather than solutions.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Structured data on the Web
  • Ontologies and data integration
  • Scalable triple stores and query processing
  • Semantic search
  • Linked data and entity resolution
  • Knowledge graphs
  • Reasoning over Web data and services
  • Semantic authoring and crowdsourcing
  • Provenance and trust in Web data
  • Distributed query processing and optimization
  • Data quality, profiling, and uncertainty
  • Data freshness and updates
  • Data mining and knowledge discovery

See the submission guidelines for details on how to submit your paper.
