The amount of structured content published on the Web has been growing rapidly, making it possible to address increasingly complex information access tasks. Recent years have witnessed the emergence of large scale human-curated knowledge bases as well as a growing array of techniques that identify or extract information automatically from unstructured and semi-structured sources. The ESAIR workshop series aims to advance the general research agenda on the problem of creating and exploiting semantic annotations. The ninth edition of ESAIR sets its focus on personal mobile applications. The desired result of the workshop is a roadmap and research agenda that guides academic efforts and aligns them with industrial directions and developments.
SCOPE AND TOPICS
The continuing goal of the ESAIR workshop series is to create a forum for researchers interested in the application of semantic annotations for information access tasks.
Mobile usage is on the rise and now accounts for 60%
of total time spent on digital media platforms; even more
interestingly, mobile apps alone account for 51% of total time
spent on digital media . We are looking for different
use cases of semantic annotations to enhance information
retrieval tasks on personal applications, such as: personal
assistants, personal tracking and general information seeking
applications on mobile platforms. One main question we seek to
answer is the types of semantic annotations needed for such use
cases. Another important issue on our agenda is the
(un)availability of large-scale (personal) data for (academic)
Topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:
We accept two types of contributions: position papers (2+1 pages) and demo papers (4+ pages).
All submissions must be formatted according to the ACM SIG proceedings format (option 2).
The reviewing process is single-blind, so submissions do not need to be anonymized. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to present their work at the workshop.
Please submit your paper through the submission
We like short and focused contributions highlighting your main point, claim, observation, finding, experiment, project, etc, (roughly 2 pages of mainly text) but we also like clear tables, graphs, and full citations (that’s the “+1” page). So your submission can up three pages, as long as max. 2 of them are narrative text.
We invite researchers and practitioners to present their innovative prototypes in a dedicated demo track at the workshop. Demo submissions must be based on an implemented system that pursues one or more aspects relevant to the interest areas of the workshop.
