5th International Workshop on
Data Engineering meets the Semantic Web (DESWeb)
In conjunction with ICDE 2014, Chicago IL, USA, March 31, 2014

Call For Contributions

The International Workshop on Data Engineering Meets the Semantic Web (DESWeb) aims at bringing together researchers from two research communities: Semantic Web and databases. The organizers' guiding hypothesis is that semantic issues of Web data bring a fresh view to the solid and established world of classical databases and vice versa, further that the foundations and techniques of this latter field can help addressing the challenges posed by semantic data at web scale.

Although in recent years these two communities have been getting closer, there is still great potential for mutual learning and cross-fertilization. Thus, this 5th version of the DESWeb workshop particularly welcomes research and vision papers that bring together ideas and techniques from these two fields and show the potential and mutual benefits of such an approach.

The main idea of this edition of DESWeb is to resume the spirit of workshops, that is, to be a place for lively discussion of ideas and future work. This is why there are two types of contributions: A standard transdisciplinary research track in the area of databases and Semantic Web, and a new track for discussions of visions, open problems, and challenges in the area.

As in previous years, DESWeb is co-located with the the annual IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE2014). For issues related to the workshop, you can contact the workshop chairs using the e-mail address desweb2014@gmail.com.

Call for regular paper submissions

The DESWeb workshop solicits papers (of up to 6 pages in the IEEE format) on research results and ongoing projects in this thematic area. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: and all other topics at the crossroads of Semantic Web and Data Engineering research.

Call for late-breaking results, visions, or challenges

We also encourage the submission of short papers (of up to 3 pages in the IEEE format) with late-breaking results, visions, or challenges. The main objective of such papers is to start a discussion on difficult and open problems or outline visions of future systems and approaches.
