Recent Trends in Semantic Web and Knowledge Graphs

Submission Deadline Extended: 1st May 2023

Aims of the Special Issue:

This special issue will explore current research on Semantic Web and Knowledge Graphs (KG). That research area is expanding thanks to the hybridization of knowledge engineering outcomes that have been maturing in the last years with the recent advances in language models that come from the new techniques in the field of machine learning and deep Learning. Focusing on that intersection, the Special Issue brings a unique perspective to the convergence of these two research streams.

 Further, papers will be selected from the following topics:

Semantic Web, KG, RDF, Ontology, Reasoning, SPARQL, KG embeddings, language models and KGs, applications of KGs, engineering KG supported systems
