Submissions to JIST-KG 2020 should describe original, significant research on Knowledge Graphs. JIST-KG 2020 will not accept submissions that are under review for or have already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference (*).
(*) Non peer-reviewed documents such as theses, technical reports, publications on preprint server (e.g. arXiv.org) are not considered prior publications. In such cases, JIST-KG 2020 authors are not precluded from submitting papers on the same topic by the same authors.
Submissions to JIST-KG 2020 are expected to present their claimed research contribution, with clear evidence to support their claims.
All submissions will be critically reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee of the Research Track. To assess submissions, reviewers will judge their relevance to the conference, their originality, technical soundness and depth of their proposed approach, and the readability of the submission.
JIST-KG 2020 submissions are not anonymous.
Submissions must be in PDF format, using the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Regular paper submissions must be no longer than 16 pages, and short paper submissions must be no longer than 8 pages. Submissions that exceed this limit may be rejected without review. Accepted papers will be published in a Springer LNCS proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper there.
Papers can be submitted electronically via EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jistkg2020).
# Journal Special Issue
A number of the best papers accepted to JIST-KG 2020 will be recommended to a Special Issue of the Journal of Big Data Research (SCI/ISI/JCR indexed; 2018 IF: 2.952), based on quality, relevance and originality.
