  Aim & Scope

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

JIST 2014, under the theme “Open Data and Semantic Technology”, solicits 
the submission of original research papers on Semantic Web and other 
semantic technologies, as well as papers on applications of semantic 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Ontology and Reasoning

- Ontology modeling, reuse, extraction, and evolution
- Ontology mapping, merging, and alignment
- Ontology evaluation
- Searching and ranking ontologies
- Reasoning over Semantic Web data
- New formalisms (such as probabilistic approaches)
- Lightweight semantics (linked data, microformats, etc.)

Management of Semantic Web Data

- Languages, tools, and methodologies for Semantic Web data
- Database, IR, and AI technologies for Semantic Web data
- Robust and scalable knowledge management and reasoning on the Web

and processes

Linked Data

- Publication of Linked Data
- Consumption of Linked Data

- Semantic Web for software and systems engineering
- Mobile Semantic Web
- Interface for Semantic Web

Topics for In-Use Track

Topics of Interest, but are not limited to

- Analysis and evaluation of semantic tools
- Semantic Web ontologies/ datasets used in practice
- Mobile applications based on semantic technology
- Semantic technology in new application domains:
     eGovernment, eHealth, Smart City,
     Biomedical and Life Sciences,
     Sensor Networks, Telecommunications
     Cultural Heritage, Financial Services
     Energy and Utilities, Manufacturing
     Digital Libraries, Learning and Education
     Personal Information Management
     Service Science, etc.

   Paper Submission

Submissions to JIST 2014 should describe original, significant research 
on semantic technologies. Submissions to JIST 2014 are expected to 
present their claimed contribution, with clear evidence to support their 
claims. All submissions will be critically reviewed by at least three 
members of the program committee. To assess submissions, reviewers will 
judge their relevance to semantic technologies, their originality, the 
technical soundness of their proposed approach and the readability of 
the submission.

Submissions must be in PDF format, using the style of the Springer 
Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). 
Submissions must be no longer than *16* pages for REGULAR TECHNICAL 
SESSIONS and *6* pages for IN-USE TRACK. Accepted papers will be 
distributed to conference attendees and published in LNCS as a 
post-proceeding (wait for confirmation).

Submissions that exceed this limit may be rejected without review. JIST 
2014 will not accept submissions that are under review for or have 
already been published in or accepted for publication in a journal or 
another conference.

All submissions must be submitted via EasyChair at 
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jist2014 .
