Workshop:     Semantic Web for Social Good (SW4SG)
Conference:  ISWC2018
Call for Submissions:

Submission Deadline: June 1, 2018  (11:59 PM HAST)
Decisions to Authors: June 27, 2018

Workshop Location: Monterrey, CA
Workshop Date: October 9, 2018

Workshop Goals:
Many Social Good topics can benefit from the sort of unplanned, cross-domain, rapid-prototyping analysis that Linked Data makes possible. We’ve learned that measuring topics like poverty, health, economic opportunity and equality can be substantially more nuanced by considering broader categories of data than organizations traditionally collect for their own use. There have been individual past presentations on topics that involve Semantic Web for Social Good. This workshop is intended to present multiple topics, to better identify intersections, overlaps, opportunities for accelerated advancement, and opportunities for shared abstractions.    To generate the best discussion on shared domain and cross-domain uses, we encourage submissions from the full array of Social Good topics.

Because we are looking to promote discussion about an emerging area, our goal is to be open to new or early stage ideas and work.  
Please submit  extended abstracts (2 pages), short papers (2 to 5 pages), posters, or demos.  
Written documents should be in PDF format and not anonymized.   
Posters should be in PDF, PNG, or GIF.

Demos should be submitted as video in MP4 of no longer than 7 minutes; demos must be submitted with an abstract or short paper.

 Submissions to SW4SG on EasyChair.
