Call for Posters

For 15 years, the SEMANTiCS conference has served as the leading European conference on Semantic Technologies and AI. Researchers, industry experts and business leaders have attended the conference to learn about the latest trends in the fields of Machine Learning, Data Science, Linked Data, and Natural Language Processing.


Now, the event is coming to the United States to further extend the learning, networking, and collaboration opportunities.  The inaugural SEMANTiCS US will be held in Austin, TX. SEMANTiCS US will offer simultaneous tracks to engage any level of interest and experience, ranging from novice to expert.  Throughout it all, the focus will be on delivering real world case studies and practical guidance, ensuring the conference will yield immediately actionable advice and learning for all attendees.

Call is open until March 15, 2020 will be extended

The informal setting of the Posters & Demonstrations Track encourages participants to present innovations to the research community and business users as well as to find new partners or clients and engage in discussions about the presented work. All accepted posters will also need to prepare a 5-minute lightning talk (2-3 slides) of their work to be presented during the conference.

  • Paper Submission Deadline: March 15, 2020 will be extended
  • Notification of Acceptance: March 25, 2020 will be extended
  • Camera-Ready Poster: April 15, 2020 will be extended

Submission Instructions

Submissions will be reviewed by experienced and knowledgeable researchers and practitioners; each submission will receive detailed feedback. Authors are expected to respond to review comments and, if necessary, resubmit their updated poster and abstract. For demos, we ask authors to include links enabling the reviewers to test the application or review the component. Please note that demos are meant to supplement poster presentations and demo-only participation is not accepted.  


This year's topics

The Posters & Demonstrations Track invites innovative work in progress, late-breaking research and innovation results, and smaller contributions in all fields related to the (broadly understood) Semantic Web. These include submissions on innovative applications, latest results, unpublished ideas, prototypes of semantic technologies and their use in various domains as well as applications, use cases or pieces of code that may attract developers and potential research or business partners. This also concerns new datasets made publicly available. Demos are optional.

Topics include but are not limited to:

Data & Advanced Analytics Ontology to Ontology Mapping
Data Portals & Knowledge Visualization RDF and Property Graphs
Data Quality Management Semantic Application Design
Data Strategies & Governance, Business Models Semantic Artificial Intelligence
