# Semantics in Big Data Management (SemBDM)

### IFIP W.G. 2.6 on Database

#### Tuesday 18th September 2018
#### IFIP World Computer Congress 2018 - Poznan, Poland

## Call for papers

The complexity of Big Data technologies and the variety of competences
required to design applications relying on them has emphasized the relevance
of systems for managing and documenting Big Data architectures.
Documentation, reconfiguration, and verification are for example crucial
tasks for a solid design of technological solutions but are not easily
supported in the current landscape of Big Data technologies. Rethinking data
and information management in the context of Big Data technologies is then a
primary goal for future research. 

Methods, principles, and perspectives developed by the Data Semantics
community can significantly contribute to this goal. Solutions for
integrating and querying schema-less data, for example, have received much
attention. Standards for metadata management have been proposed to improve
data integration among silos and to make data more discoverable and
accessible through heterogeneous infrastructures. A further level of
application of Data Semantics principles into Big Data technologies involves
Representing Processes, i.e. representing the entire pipeline of
technologies connected to achieve a specific solution and make this
representation shareable and verifiable to support a mature implementation
of the Big Data production cycle. 

The symposium will bring together leading researchers, engineers, and
scientists from around the world.

## Important Dates

- Abstract submission: 24 Jun, 2018 
- Notification of acceptance: 2 Jul, 2018
- Early registration deadline: 14 Jul, 2018
- Camera ready (pre-proceedings) submission: 16 Jul, 2018 
- SemBDM: 18 Sep, 2018
- Post-proceedings submission: 28 Oct, 2018

## Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted to another
conference or journal for consideration. All papers must be written in
English. Submissions to pre-proceedings must be at most 2 pages long in
total including references and appendices. Submissions should not be
anonymized. Program Committee members are not required to read the
appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them.

Submission must be submitted electronically to the Symposium management
system connecting to http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=semdb2018.
At least one author of each accepted paper is requested to participate in
the conference and present his/her work.

Accepted papers will be published in a pre-proceedings volume with ISBN. The
papers submitted must be sent in PDF, following the LNCS Springer Verlag
format. Templates can be downloaded from:

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit extended articles to a
post-symposium volume of the Foundations of Computing and Decision Sciences
journal (
Extended articles will be selected for publication in the journal, based on
