Sydney, Australia October 21-25, 2013
Call for Doctoral Consortium Submissions
The ISWC 2013 Doctoral Consortium will take place as part of the
12th International Semantic Web Conference in Sydney, Australia.
This forum will provide PhD students an opportunity to share and
develop their research ideas in a critical but supportive
environment, to get feedback from mentors who are senior members
of the Semantic Web research community, to explore issues related
to academic and research careers, and ri build relationships with
other Semantic Web PhD students from around the world. The
Consortium aims to broaden the perspectives and to improve the
research and communication skills of these students.
The Doctoral Consortium is intended for students who have a
specific research proposal and some preliminary results, but who
have sufficient time prior to completing their dissertation to
benefit from the consortium experience. In the Consortium, the
students will present their proposals and get specific feedback
and advice on how to improve their research plan.
All proposals submitted to the Doctoral Consortium will undergo a
thorough reviewing process with a view to providing detailed and
constructive feedback. The international program committee will
select the best submissions for presentation at the Doctoral
Consortium and will be published in the conference proceedings.
We anticipate that students with accepted submissions at the
Doctoral Consortium will receive travel fellowships to offset
some of the travel costs.
The Consortium has the same scope of technical topics as the main
ISWC conference ? Management of Semantic Web data and Linked Data
? Languages, tools, and methodologies for representing and
managing Semantic Web data ? Database, IR, NLP and AI
technologies for the Semantic Web ? Search, query, integration,
and analysis on the Semantic Web ? Robust and scalable knowledge
management and reasoning on the Web ? Cleaning, assurance, and
provenance of Semantic Web data, services, and processes ?
Semantic Web Services ? Semantic Sensor Web ? Semantic
technologies for mobile platforms ? Evaluation of semantic web
technologies ? Ontology engineering and ontology patterns for the
Semantic Web ? Ontology modularity, mapping, merging, and
alignment ? Ontology Dynamics ? Social and Emergent Semantics ?
Social networks and processes on the Semantic Web ? Representing
and reasoning about trust, privacy, and security ? User
Interfaces to the Semantic Web ? Interacting with Semantic Web
data and Linked Data ? Information visualization of Semantic Web
data and Linked Data ? Personalized access to Semantic Web data
and applications ? Semantic Web technologies for eGovernment,
eEnvironment, eMobility or eHealth ? Semantic Web and Linked Data
for Cloud environments
We ask the PhD students to submit an 8 page description of their
PhD research proposal. The proposal text must have at least 8
sections (some can be very short), addressing each of the
1. Problem Statement: What problem are you trying to solve?
2. Relevancy: Why is the problem relevant?
3. Related Work: How have others attempted to address this
4. Research Questions: What are the research questions that you
plan to address?
5. Hypotheses: What hypotheses are related to you research
6. Approach: How are you planning to address your research
questions and test your hypotheses?
7. Reflections: Why do you think you will succeed where others
8. Evaluation plan: How will you measure your success -
faster/more accurate/less failures/etc.?
Submissions must be in pdf and be formatted according to the
Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer
