The Call for Industry Presentations at SEMANTiCS 2014 can be found here: http://www.semantics.cc/open-calls/industry-presentations

The annual SEMANTiCS conference (formerly known as I-Semantics) is the meeting place for professionals who make semantic computing work, and understand its benefits and know its limitations. Every year, SEMANTiCS attracts information managers, IT-architects, software engineers, and researchers, from organisations ranging from NPOs, public administrations to the largest companies in the world. Attendees learn from industry experts and top researchers about emerging trends and topics in semantic software, enterprise data, linked data & open data strategies and methodologies in knowledge modeling and text & data analytics. The SEMANTiCS community is highly diverse; attendees have responsibilities interlinking areas like knowledge management, technical documentation, e-commerce, big data analytics, enterprise search, document management, business intelligence, and enterprise vocabulary management.

SEMANTiCS 2014 continues a long tradition of bringing together colleagues from around the world to present scientific papers, panels, posters, and best practices, to discuss semantic systems in birds-of-a-feather sessions and informal settings. SEMANTiCS addresses problems common among information managers, software engineers, IT-architects and various specialist departments working to develop, implement and/or evaluate semantic software systems. 

The SEMANTiCS program is a rich mix of technical talks, panel discussions of important topics, and presentations by people who make things work - just like you. In addition, attendees can network with experts in a variety of fields. These relationships provide great value to organisations as they encounter subtle technical issues. The expertise gained by SEMANTiCS attendees has a long-term impact on their careers and organisations. These factors make SEMANTiCS the premiere event for our community.

The following ‘horizontals’ (topics) and ‘verticals’ (industries) are mainly addressed:

Horizontals:
* Business Models, Governance & Data Strategies
* Knowledge Discovery & Intelligent Search
* Data Integration & Enterprise Linked Data
* Big Data & Text Analytics
* Data Portals & Knowledge Visualisation
* Document Management & Content Management
* Terminology, Thesaurus & Ontology Management

Verticals:
* Industry & Engineering
* Life Sciences & Health Care
* Public Administration
* Galleries, Libraries, Archives & Museums (GLAM)
* Media, Publishing & Advertising
* Financial Industry
* Telecommunications
* Energy

Research / Application Papers

Papers report on novel scientific research and/or applications relevant to the topics of the conference. Submissions must be original and must not have been submitted for publication elsewhere. The number of pages of research papers is limited to 8 pages for full papers and 4 pages for short papers including references and an optional appendix.

All accepted full papers and short papers of SEMANTiCS will be published in the digital library of the ACM ICP Series under the ISBN-No.: 978-1-4503-1972-0. Full and short papers should follow the ACM ICPS guidelines for formatting (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates) and must be submitted via the online submission system available at the conference website as PDF documents (other formats will not be accepted). For the camera-ready version, we will also need the source files (Latex, Word Perfect, Word).

Important Dates (Research & Application)
* Abstract Submission Deadline:     May 23, 2014

Posters & Demos

The Posters & Demonstrations Track offer an opportunity to present late-breaking research results, smaller contributions, and innovative work in progress.

The informal setting of the Posters & Demonstrations Track encourages presenters and participants to engage in discussions about the presented work. Such discussions can be invaluable inputs for the future work of the presenters, while offering conference participants an effective way to broaden their knowledge of the emerging research trends and to network with other researchers. Poster and demo submissions should consist of a paper of 1-4 pages that describes the work and its contribution to the field. Submissions to Posters & Demonstrations track must be formatted in the Springer LNCS format (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs/lncs+authors), i.e. please do NOT use the ACM template here.

Submissions will be reviewed by experienced researchers and practitioners; each submission will receive detailed feedback. 

Important Dates (Posters & Demo Papers)
* Submission Deadline:         July 17, 2014
* Notification of Acceptance:        July 31, 2014

Call for Proposals
"Collaborating Digitally: Engaging Students in Faculty Research"
Bucknell Digital Scholarship Conference: 14-16 November 2014

Bucknell University, with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation,
will host its first annual international digital scholarship conference.
The theme of the conference is "Collaborating Digitally: Engaging Students
in Faculty Research" with the goal of gathering a broad community of
scholar-practitioners engaged in collaborative digital scholarship in
research and teaching.

This conference will bring together a broad community of
scholar-practitioners engaged in collaborative digital scholarship in
research and teaching. We encourage presentations that emphasize forms of
collaboration: between institutions of higher education; across
disciplines; between faculty, librarians, and technologists; and between
faculty and students. We welcome contributions from scholars, educators,
technologists, librarians, administrators, and students who use digital
tools and methods, and encourage submissions from emerging and established
scholar-practitioners alike, including those who are new to digital
collaboration.

Submission topics may include but are not limited to: engaging with space
and place; creating innovative teaching and learning environments;
perspectives on implications for the individual's own research and pedagogy
within the institutional landscape, etc.
Presentations may take the form of short papers, project demos, electronic
posters, panel discussions, or lightning talks.

For more information about submitting a presentation proposal, please go to
the Bucknell Digital Initiatives website: http://goo.gl/eoOnK4 . The
deadline for proposals is August 1, 2014.

If you have questions or would like more information about the submission
process, please email conference coordinator Diane Jakacki:
diane.jakacki at bucknell.edu.

Bucknell is a private liberal arts university located alongside the
historic Susquehanna River in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. At Bucknell "Digital
Scholarship" is defined as any scholarly activity that makes extensive use
of one or more of the new possibilities for teaching and research opened up
by the unique affordances of digital media. These include, but are not
limited to, new forms of collaboration, new forms of publication, and new
methods for visualizing and analyzing data.
