CfP - SWAT4HCLS Basel 2023

Semantic Web Applications and Tools for Health Care and Life Sciences.
2023 edition in Basel, 13 to 16 of February, 2023

Submission: via EasyChair

The SWAT4HCLS conference will take place in person in Basel
(Switzerland) from 13-16 Feb 2023.
We welcome original contributions to the program, covering the use of
semantic technologies across the life sciences and healthcare
spectrum. We welcome original research, experiences, position papers
and this year also “data in use” submissions.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

Semantic Web Infrastructures and Resources in Healthcare and Life Science
- Architectures and algorithms to support volume and scale, rapid
knowledge changes and heterogeneity
- Semantic querying, data validation languages, knowledge graphs,
rule-based systems.
- Infrastructures supporting provenance, traceability, trust and reproducibility
- Information visualization and exploratory analysis methods
- Biomedical ontologies, rules and medical standards for interoperability
- Semantic workflow technologies and semantic web services applied in
life sciences.
- Semantic Web technologies in FAIR data and open data ecosystems7
- Semantic scientific publishing in the life sciences, medicine and
healthcare, public health
- Semantic infrastructures for patient-centric healthcare data ecosystems

Semantic Web and AI in Healthcare and the Life Sciences
- Explainable AI and semantics
- Ontology based neural symbolic reasoning and learning
- Machine learning and data mining methods for Semantic Web data
- Knowledge-driven ML and data mining
- NLP and text mining using semantic technologies
- Clinical Intelligence from Electronic Health Records (EHRs), patient
data and clinical trial data

Semantic Web Technologies across Healthcare and Life Science Communities
- Semantic Web and biodiversity
- Semantic Web agriculture, food and nutrition
- Semantic Web drug discovery and drug repurposing
- Semantic Web translational medicine and personalized medicine
- Semantic Web and bioimaging
- Semantic Web and SARS-CoV-2

Submission Guidelines

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to
another journal or conference/workshop. We welcome the following type
of contributions: long papers (introducing novel research
contributions), negative results, short papers (presenting early
results or work in progress), position papers (introducing an idea and
discussion around it), demo papers (presenting tools, software,
applications, etc.), posters and “data in use” (showcase of federated
queries over multiple “FAIR” datasets). Submissions will be evaluated
by at least two members of the Programme Committee. Accepted papers
will be part of the proceedings of the CEUR conference proceedings and
will be publicly available under CC-by 4.0 license.

- All submissions will be handled via EasyChair
- All papers and posters must be in English and submitted in pdf using
the LNCS format.
- Submissions for long papers and negative results must be a maximum
of 10 pages.
- Submissions for short papers and position papers must be a maximum of 5 pages.
- Submissions for demos, posters abstract and “data in use” papers
must be a maximum of two pages.

About “data in use” paper

We welcome a “data in use” paper describing a SPARQL endpoint, RDF
dataset or OWL ontology this year. The paper should include:

- How the SPARQL endpoint/dataset/OWL ontology may be used and reused,
- Interoperability with other SPARQL endpoints/datasets/OWL ontologies,
- The life science/healthcare/chemistry/agriculture use cases for the dataset,
- A SPARQL/OWL query demonstrating a use case, and
- Demonstration of a federated query connecting the proposed dataset
with a publicly available one.
