2nd International KEYSTONE Conference

IKC 2016

Cluj-Napoca Romania, 8-9 September 2016

Demo Track

Keyword-based search over structured and semi-structured datasets is increasingly deployed in synergy with other technologies, particularly from the fields of semantic web, information retrieval, data mining and databases, to support real-life applications. The Demo track provides a forum for the community to explore techniques, tools and libraries that can be used in such settings. We expect the submissions that showcase the benefits and pinpoint challenges of applying techniques from the database, semantic web, data mining, natural language processing, IR and related fields, which may be developed by the authors themselves or other third party, e.g., academics or industrials, to search, explore and exploit Web data. We particularly encourage submissions that contain a form of demonstration, albeit optional.

Submissions will be evaluated on the practicality of the tool, method or technique, subject of the submission, its relevance to the community. Submissions should clearly describe the problem addressed, preferably using a use case, a demo software or illustrative example, and show how the solution (method, technique, library, etc.) can be used for its resolution.

Accepted submission will be made available online. The authors of the best papers will be asked to extend their publications up to 6 pages for their inclusion in the post-proceedings (after an approval by the track chairs) Authors will be allocated 20 min (including QA and discussion) to present their work. The presentation and supplement materials such as: demonstration videos, source codes will be incorporated into github repository as well as published at the KEYSTONE website.


Papers submitted to this track (2-6 pages using the Lecture Notes in Computer Science style available at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) will be published on the website.

Authors should submit a paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling. Papers have to be formatted The proceedings will be published by Springer (Lecture Notes in Computer Science).
The publication of the paper in the proceedings (only papers with at least 6 pages) is subject to the presentation in the conference by one of its authors.
