Apologies for cross posting

Diversity++ workshop co-located with the 14th International Semantic Web Conference, ISWC 2015 in
Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA

Workshop website: http://dase.cs.wright.edu/activities/diversity2015

Submission deadline: July 1, 2015


Semantic Web technologies are used in many diverse domains. Mainstream applications of Semantic
Technologies now include Bioinformatics and healthcare with Smart cities an up and coming domain.
Domains such as oceanography, astronomy, finance, and law utilize Semantic Technologies, but are
generally under-represented in the broader Semantic Web community. This workshop aims at bridging
this gap and leading to more widespread adoption of Semantic Web principles.

Topics of Interest

The primary aim of the workshop is to discuss non-regular, underrepresented and diverse topics
related to the Semantic Web domain including work-in-progress, feasible ideas, failures and lessons
learned. This covers a broad spectrum of topics across multiple disciplines. Some examples include,
but are definitely not limited to the following.

1) Inter-disciplinary research (combination of Semantic Web technologies and other Science) in
unconventional domains.
a) Experimental, non-traditional application of mathematics, machine learning, or information
retrieval in Semantic Web context.
b) Semantic Web applications in non-regular fields such as astronomy, geosciences, music, law,
finance etc.
2) Development of vocabulary and models in the context of Semantic Web for unconventional domains.
a) Quantitative measurements and statistical analysis of Semantic Web systems and models including
Markov Chain models, UML etc.
b) Integration of probabilistic and ontological models for knowledge discovery
3) Position papers and research agendas for the injection of Semantic Web technologies in other
domains (e.g. soft sciences and the liberal arts)

Submission Information

Contributions are solicited in the form of short papers (4 pages) and long papers (12 pages) in LNCS
format. All contributions should be prepared in PDF format and should be submitted through the
