Diversity++ workshop co-located with the 14th International Semantic Web
Conference, ISWC 2015 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA

Workshop website: http://dase.cs.wright.edu/activities/diversity2015

Submission deadline: July 1, 2015


Semantic Web technologies are used in many diverse domains. Mainstream
applications of Semantic Technologies now include Bioinformatics and
healthcare with Smart cities an up and coming domain. Domains such as
oceanography, astronomy, finance, and law utilize Semantic Technologies,
but are generally under-represented in the broader Semantic Web community.
This workshop aims at bridging this gap and leading to more widespread
adoption of Semantic Web principles.

Topics of Interest

The primary aim of the workshop is to discuss non-regular, underrepresented
and diverse topics related to the Semantic Web domain including
work-in-progress, feasible ideas, failures and lessons learned. This covers
a broad spectrum of topics across multiple disciplines. Some examples
include, but are definitely not limited to the following.

1) Inter-disciplinary research (combination of Semantic Web technologies
and other Science) in unconventional domains.
a) Experimental, non-traditional application of mathematics, machine
learning, or information retrieval in Semantic Web context.
b) Semantic Web applications in non-regular fields such as astronomy,
geosciences, music, law, finance etc.
2) Development of vocabulary and models in the context of Semantic Web for
unconventional domains.
a) Quantitative measurements and statistical analysis of Semantic Web
systems and models including Markov Chain models, UML etc.
b) Integration of probabilistic and ontological models for knowledge
3) Position papers and research agendas for the injection of Semantic Web
technologies in other domains (e.g. soft sciences and the liberal arts)

Submission Information

Contributions are solicited in the form of short papers (4 pages) and long
