Any ESIP members working with, or interested in, applications of Semantic Technologies, please consider the following workshop.

Tom Narock
ESIP Semantic Web Cluster Chair and Workshop Co-Chair


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 workshop submission site at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=diversity2015.
