Special Call for papers on

SEMANTIC WEB TOOLS AND SYSTEMS

The "Semantic Web" journal invites submissions of papers describing mature Semantic Web related tools and systems. These reports should be brief and pointed, indicating clearly the capabilities of the described tool or system. It is strongly encouraged, that the described tools or systems are free, open, and accessible on the Web. If this is not possible, then they have to be made available to the reviewers. For commercial tools and systems, exceptions can be arranged through the editors.

A paper concerning a new release of a tool/system for which a (tool/system) paper has already been published in the Semantic Web journal or some other journal must cite the earlier paper and clearly explain what contributions are brought by the new release. The cover letter must also point out that it is a paper concerning a new release. These papers will be evaluated with respect to the standing criteria for tools/systems papers, and in addition with respect to all of the following. (a) The changes to the tool/system since the previous paper must sufficiently substantial to deserve a new paper. These changes must be described clearly in the paper. (b) The system must have had significant additional uptake since acceptance of the previous paper; convincing evidence must be provided. (c) The previous paper must have had significant visibility within or outside the community. This will typically be assessed by citation counts (not including self-citations) of the previous paper, and this assessment will be performed by the reviewers and editors. It is strongly recommended to contact the editors-in-chief about a preliminary assessment, before submitting such an update paper.

Submissions will be reviewed along the following dimensions: (1) Quality, importance, and impact of the described tool or system (convincing evidence must be provided). (2) Clarity, illustration, and readability of the describing paper, which shall convey to the reader both the capabilities and the limitations of the tool.

Some of the most visible papers in the Semantic Web journal are tools and systems papers. For a list of previously accepted such papers, please see http://www.semantic-web-journal.net/tools_and_systems. Tools and Systems papers are typically 8-10 pages long, but longer papers can also be submitted if there is significant additional content.

Submission Deadline: 1st of December, 2015.

Call for papers: Special Issue on
The Semantic Web and Linked Data: Security, Privacy and Policy
Although the technology underpinning the Semantic Web and Linked Data has been in existence for a number of years, initially data publishers focused on exposing and linking static, public and open data. Indeed, much like e-Business on the Web was only made possible once security and privacy issues were adequately addressed, linked data and the semantic web might only evolve to a dynamic read/write distributed data source supporting the full spectrum of data and knowledge - from open to private and confidential - if we first provide solutions for challenges with respect to data security, privacy, policies, rights and licensing.
Although several existing network security and web service security mechanisms can be used in conjunction with the Web of Data, there are a number of new security challenges that need to be addressed. To date, much of the research efforts have focused on the specification of access policies that restrict who can access the data, however there are many open research questions with respect to the enforcement, administration, usability and scalability of the proposed security mechanisms. Here the term “access control” has a much broader connotation than simply controlling who can access the data and what operations they can perform, including for example aspects of digital rights management.
When it comes to interlinked web data there are also a number of new privacy challenges. From a legal perspective, there is a requirement to uphold existing legislation, which restricts the use of personal data beyond the scope with respect to which it was captured. From a societal perspective, web users today expect a certain level of control over their personal data, for example who can access their data and what the data consumers can do with the data once they have been granted access.
This special issue aims to explore issues with respect to the security, privacy and policy mechanisms, processes and methodologies that are now critically needed to support the next generation of electronic business applications over interlinked and semantic web data.
Topics of Interest
We welcome original high quality submissions on (but are not restricted to) the following topics:
Publishing data on the Web in the presence of confidential information
Privacy and security: enforcement, correctness and scalability
Methods for information flow control and accountability
Access policies, usability and understandability
Methods for policy governance
Access negotiation and explanations
Provenance, trust and metadata for authoritative sources
Data authenticity and integrity
Techniques for anonymity, pseudonymity and unlinkability in linked and semantic data
Dealing with inference in private, sensitive or confidential data
Protecting against pattern/behaviour discovery and community mining
Protecting against identity theft and data falsification
Encryption and digital signatures together with linked and semantic data
Data transparency and user consent on the Web of Data
Machine processing of and reasoning upon data licences and policies
Data licensing and policy propagation in linked data
Privacy legislation compliance and synchronisation of policies from different legal domains
User-friendly applications and interface design to interact with legal semantic information
Law, Intellectual property and legal issues for data and schemas
Law and governance in deliberative e-democracy and democratic e-participation
Semantic Web techniques and e-discovery in large legal document collections
Submissions

Semantic Web Journal Special Call for Papers on

LINKED DATA AND ONTOLOGY REUSE

The enabling of easy reuse and repurposing of data and metadata has been one of the central themes of the Semantic Web field since its inception. Ever-increasing data volumes and the need for scalable solutions for information sharing, discovery, and reuse make this Semantic Web topic even more important today.

The Semantic Web journal invites submissions of papers on the topic of Linked Data and Ontology Reuse. Submissions can report on original research which enables or simplifies reuse, on tools and systems which support it, on ontologies or linked datasets which have found significant reuse, on deployed applications which are based on reuse, or can be surveys of important and timely aspects of reuse.

Submissions are possible in all standing paper categories of the journal, they are described at http://www.semantic-web-journal.net/authors. Please take particular note of the listed review criteria for each paper type, and make sure that your submission adequately addresses these aspects.

Extended versions of suitable conference papers are welcome, see FAQ9 at http://www.semantic-web-journal.net/faq#q9.

Submission deadline: September 15, 2015. We will process early submissions immediately upon receipt.

For questions please contact the editors-in-chief, Pascal Hitzler and Krzysztof Janowicz, at contact@semantic-web-journal.net.
