The International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Semantic Web (KESW 2017) has been held on November 08–November 10, 2017 in Szczecin, Poland. For more information about the conference please use this link: http://2017.kesw.ru/calls/.
KESW 2017 is the 8th conference in the series. KESW is a top international event dedicated to discussing research results and directions in the areas related to Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, Semantic Web, and Linked Data. Its aim is to bring together researchers, practitioners, and educators, in particular from ex-USSR, Eastern and Northern Europe, to present and share ideas regarding Semantic Web, and popularize the area in these regions.
The scope and topics of interest of the Special Issue papers follow those of KESW 2017 and are listed below: Scalable Data Access, Ontologies and Controlled Vocabularies, Linked Data, Natural language Processing and Semantic Web, Human Computer Interaction, Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, Storage Solutions for the Semantic Web, Semantic Technologies in Industry, Semantic Social Web, Trust, security, and privacy
The authors of a number of selected full papers of high quality will be invited after the conference to submit revised and extended versions of their originally accepted conference papers to this Special Issue of Information published by MDPI in open access. The selection of these best papers will be based on their ratings in the conference review process, quality of the presentation during the conference, and expected impact to the research community. Submitted papers should be extended to the size of regular research or review articles with 50% extension of new results. All submitted papers will undergo our standard peer-review procedure.
Accepted papers will be published in Open Access format in Information and collected together in this Special Issue website. We would like to publish the extended best papers of the conference with Article Processing Fees waived. Since the MDPI organizes the peer review, only if the papers receive all positive review reports, the publishing fees will be waived. The "positive reports" mean no reject reports. If other papers are accepted with reject reports (in all rounds of peer review), they will be charged for Article Processing fees.
The deadline for submission to this Special Issue is 15 October, 2018.
Please prepare and format your paper according to the Instructions for Authors. Use the LaTeX or Microsoft Word template file of the journal (both are available from the Instructions for Authors page). Manuscripts should be submitted online via our susy.mdpi.com editorial system.
