ESWC is a A rank conference according to CORE classification and a major
venue for discussing the latest scientific results and technology
innovations related to the Semantic Web. The 11th edition of ESWC will
take place from May 25th, 2014 to May 29th, 2014 in Anissaras, Crete,
Greece. Besides a main focus on advances in Semantic Web research and
technologies, ESWC 2014 is seeking to broaden its attention to span
other relevant research areas in which Web semantics plays an important

The goal of the Semantic Web is to create a Web of knowledge and
services in which the semantics of content is made explicit and content
is linked to both other content and services. This arrangement of
knowledge-based functionalities is weaving together a large network of
human knowledge, and making this knowledge machine-processable to
support intelligent behaviour by machines. Additionally, it supports
novel applications allowing content from heterogeneous sources to be
combined in unforeseen ways and support enhanced matching between users
needs, software functionalities and online content.

Creating such an interlinked Web of knowledge which bridges between
heterogeneous content and services requires collaboration between
several computer science domains. Also, within this hybrid space that
the Web has become, where humans and software interact in a complex
manner, fundamentally requires an inter-disciplinary approach to find
novel solutions to the problems generated.

ESWC 2014 will feature twelve thematic research tracks (see below) and
an in-use and industrial track. Submissions of interdisciplinary
research papers, covering more than one thematic track, are also
encouraged. In addition, the in-use and industrial track will provide an
opportunity for dialogue and discussion on industrial applications,
tools, deployment experiences, case studies and usage analysis.

Submitted papers should describe original work, present significant
results, and provide rigorous, principled, and repeatable evaluation. We
strongly encourage and appreciate the submission of papers incorporating
links to data sets and other material used for evaluation as well as to
live demos and software source code.

We therefore encourage submissions addressing several conference
research topics. However, each paper should be associated with at least
one of the topics of the conference. The main research topics this year
- Vocabularies, Schemas, Ontologies;
- Reasoning;
- Linked Open Data;
- Social Web;
- Web Science;
- Data Management, Big data, Scalability;
- Natural Language Processing;
- Information Retrieval;
- Machine Learning;
- Mobile Web;
- Sensors;
- Streams;
- Services, processes, and cloud computing.

Additional special research topics this year are:
- Cognition and Semantic Web;
- Policies, Rights, Governance;
- Semantic multimedia web.

*Submission  Information*

ESWC2014 welcomes the submission of original research and application
papers dealing with all aspects of representing and using semantics on
the Web. We encourage theoretical, methodological, empirical, and
applications papers. The proceedings of this conference will be
published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

This year three of the best papers presented at the conference will have
the opportunity to submit an extended version to a special issue of the
journal "Semantic Web - Interoperability, Usability, Applicability" (IOS

Papers should not exceed fifteen (15) pages in length and must be
formatted according to the information for LNCS authors. Papers must be
submitted in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format) format. Papers that
exceed 15 pages or do not follow the LNCS guidelines will be
automatically rejected without a review. Authors of accepted papers will
be required to provide semantic annotations for the abstract of their
submission - details of this process will be given on the conference Web
page at the time of acceptance. At least one author of each accepted
paper must register for the conference. More information about the
Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) are available on the
Springer LNCS Web site

Submissions and reviewing will be supported by the EasyChair system:
