ISWC 2014 Doctoral Consortium Preview

ISWC-DC 2014 t-shirtNext Monday (Oct. 20) we’ll be the International Semantic Web Conference’s Doctoral Consortium . This year, I helped organize the consortium with  Natasha Noy.

This is a chance for the PhD students in our community to get direct feedback on their proposals and to connect with each other. We had 41 submissions this year. It was tough to chose but with our excellent PC we were able to select 16 proposals for discussion at the conference. Even thought we had to make a selection we worked hard to give each of these students reviews that could really help them progress as a researcher.

6 of the selected papers were of high enough quality to be included in the official Springer conference proceedings. The others we’ve made available online as a CEUR supplementary proceedings.

Below you’ll find a list and links to the pdfs of  all the accepted papers. By going through these papers, I think you can get a great sense of where the field is headed ranging from combining information extraction and semantic web to unique applications of semantics.  If you’re attending the conference on Monday, I hope you stop by to talk with this next generation of researchers.

Also if you haven’t heard Natasha and Avi’s talk “The Semantic Webber’s Guide to Evaluating Research Contributions”  – it’s awesome. It kicks off the day. So be sure to show up for that.
