Contingent on consent of the authors, all accepted papers and talk abstracts will be included in proceedings through for open-access online publication and distribution before the workshop day. The copyright will remain with the authors.

Important Dates

We will offer one submission deadline for both research papers and talk abstracts.

Submission deadline: May 4, 2018 Reviews due: May 25, 2018 Notifications: May 28, 2018

Camera-ready version: June 8, 2018 Workshop day: July 12, 2017 Conference: July 8 - July 12

Review Criteria

Contributions will be evaluated according to criteria of novelty, utility, and soundness:

  1. Novelty: Is this something the community does not already know?
  2. Utility: Is this something worth knowing and disseminating?
  3. Soundness: Is it believably true or at least convincingly argued?

For research papers, preference will be given to papers in an ongoing state with the highest potential for turning into a full conference paper next year.

For talk abstracts, preference will be given to forward-looking discussions on new trends, future applications and tasks, and so far overlooked open problems.

Authors planning a submission to the KG4IR Special Issue in the Information Retrieval Journal, we offer the opportunity to simultaneously submit a talk abstract to the KG4IR workshop. In this case, please indicate the paper title of the journal submission when submitting the talk abstract.
