First Call for Papers -- International Joint Conference on Knowledge Graphs (IJCKG)
11th International Joint Conference on Knowledge Graphs (IJCKG-2022)
(In cooperation with ISWC)

October 27-29, 2022 (hybrid), Hangzhou, China

The 11th International Joint Conference on Knowledge Graphs
(IJCKG-2022, in cooperation with ISWC) is a premium academic forum on
Knowledge Graphs. The mission of IJCKG 2022 is to bring together
international researchers in the Knowledge Graph community and other
related areas to present their innovative research results or novel
applications of Knowledge Graphs. IJCKG has evolved from the Joint
International Semantic Technology Conference (JIST): a joint event for
disseminating research results regarding the Semantic Web, Knowledge
Graphs, Linked Data and AI on the Web.

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library within
its International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS).  A number of
the best papers accepted to IJCKG 2022 will be recommended to one of
the following journals:

* World Wide Web Journal (Science Citation Index Expanded)
* Big Data Research (Science Citation Index Expanded)
* Data Science Engineering (EI Compendex) 
* Data Intelligence (EI Compendex)

Important Dates (all dates are 23:59 AOE)
* Abstract submission: July 11, 2022
* Full paper submission: July  18, 2022
* Acceptance Notifications: September 2, 2022
* Camera Ready Submissions: September 10, 2022

Submissions to IJCKG 2022 should describe original work on Knowledge
Graphs. IJCKG 2022 will not accept submissions that are under review
for or have already been published or accepted for publication in a
journal or another conference (*).

* Non peer-reviewed documents such as theses, technical reports,
 publications on preprint servers (e.g., arXiv.org) or workshops
 papers without formal proceedings are not considered prior
 publications. In such cases, IJCKG 2022 authors are not precluded
 from submitting papers on the same topic by the same authors.

Full research papers submitted to IJCKG 2022 are expected to present
their claimed research contribution, with clear evidence to support
their claims.

All submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the
Program Committee of the Research Track. These anonymous reviewers
will judge each paper’s relevance to the conference, technical
soundness, and the readability of the submission.

Submission site and format
IJCKG 2022 submissions are not anonymous and can be submitted
electronically via EasyChair

Submissions must be in PDF format, using the latest ACM Proceedings
Format with the default 9pt font (see sample-sigconf.tex or Interim
layout.docx from

Regular paper submissions must be no longer than 8 pages, excluding
references.  Unlimited additional pages may be used for
references. Submissions that exceed this limit or that do not follow
the indicated format may be rejected without review.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the
conference and present the paper there.  Papers for which authors do
not register and present may be excluded from the proceedings.
