Semantic Web journal: Special Call for Surveys on Application Areas of Semantic Technologies


Semantic Web journal:
Special Call for
Surveys on Application Areas of Semantic Technologies

Semantic Web technologies are currently in a transition from research to practice. The amount of progress made in different application areas, however, differs significantly, as do the challenges which lie ahead.

The Semantic Web journal calls for survey papers on the state of the art in research, development, and deployment of Semantic Web technologies in specific application areas and domains. Surveys should focus on one specific application area and discuss in a comprehensive way

  • its importance,
  • the particular (past, present, and future) challenges faced in applying Semantic technologies in this area, and
  • the state of the art in developing foundational principles and practical solutions related to this area.

Application areas covered may range from those where commercial solutions have already been deployed, to areas where basic research is still under way. They may address very specific needs, e.g., mobile recommender systems, or span broader scientific domains, e.g., the life sciences.

Survey articles should have the potential to become well-known introductory and overview texts. They will be reviewed along the following dimensions: (1) Suitability as introductory text, targeted at researchers, students, or practitioners, to get started on the covered topic. (2) How comprehensive and how balanced is the presentation and coverage. (3) Readability and clarity of the presentation. (4) Importance of the covered material to the broader Semantic Web community.

Prospective authors must take notice of the submission guidelines posted at http://www.semantic-web-journal.net/authors
