Author guidelines

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers in any of the topics of the workshop. Papers must be written in English and comply with the CEUR formatting rules. Authors can prepare their manuscript and submit it to the workshop organizers by following the instructions detailed here.

We accept three types of submissions: Regular Papers, Demo Papers, and Posters/Discussion papers.

  • Regular Papers describe original solutions aiming at exploiting or providing Semantic Web technologies and/or open data for Cultural Heritage. The results described must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. A regular paper should describe the context of the work, the problem tackled, the relevant state of the art, the solution suggested and the benefits of the contribution. Regular papers should have at least 10 pages and not exceed 12 pages (including all text, figures, references and appendices).
  • Demo papers should provide a brief description of academic and/or industrial efforts on software tools and systems publishing or exploiting open data and/or ontologies for Cultural Heritage. The tools/systems features described within the demo paper must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. It is expected that accepted demo papers will be presented in the form of a live demonstration. Demo papers should have at least 5 pages and not exceed 6 pages.
  • Poster/discussion papers should present ideas on the use of Open Data and Semantic Web technologies for Cultural Heritage, including extended abstract of recent own publications, position papers, system and application descriptions and presentations of preliminary results. Poster/discussion papers are ideal to raise discussions on new challenges and get feedback from the community. Similarly to demo papers, they should have at least 5 pages and not exceed 6 pages.

Submissions not conforming to the CEUR format and the above page limitations or being obviously out of the scope of the workshop will be rejected without review.

Accepted papers will be made available electronically in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings series.

After the workshop, authors of selected research regular/demo papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to the Journal of Cultural Heritage (JCH).
