About THE Workshop

1st International Workshop on Open Problems and Emerging New Topics in Semantic Web Technology

Knowledge Graphs, Graph Embeddings, Deep Learning, Cognition, Brain Computer Interfaces, Blockchain technology, the entire Semantic Web on a Raspberry Pi…
What will be the next big topics in the Semantic Web Community? What are the most urgent challenges to be solved? THE Workshop aims to support the Semantic Web Community to find an answer to this question by offering a platform to present, discuss, exchange, revise, refine, and complement emerging ideas, ongoing and open challenges, as well as preliminary research results of potential impact. Instead of simply repeating the traditional mini conference format, THE workshop enables the ad hoc development of solution ideas for research challenges, to foster the matchmaking of researchers and practitioners working on common or complementary problems, to set up a forum for PhD students to find interesting new topics, and – in the long run – to develop a roadmap for future research.

THE Workshop  is a half day workshop at the 17th International Semantic Web Conference
Monterey, California | October 8-12, 2018

How to Contribute

Submit a Contribution

Participants are asked to provide their submission in a format that allows uploading them to an open reviewing system. After submitting, website administrators will publish the contribution on this website.

Submission Deadline: September 15, 2018

Review and Rate Contributions

THE Workshop employs an open submission and reviewing system. Each submission will be available on the Submitted Works Page. PC Members are encouraged to rate each submission using the 5-Star rating system and write open reviews using the comment section. The entire community is further invited to take part in the discussion and and place a voting (Upvote/Downvote) on each submission. Rather than a  deadline-driven process, we’ll have an ongoing open discussion of proposals for a longer period of time, with the online discussion being open  beyond the workshop date.
