KWEPSY2007 is the Knowledge Web PhD Symposium 2007, co-located with the 4th Annual European Semantic Web Conference in . The Knowledge Web PhD


Important Dates (GMT)

Call for Contributions

Though organized under the umbrella of Knowledge Web , the symposium is open to all PhD students carrying out research on top.css related to the Semantic Web.The applicants are required to send an extended abstract of their doctoral work, which should address the following aspects:

  • Describe the research problem of the PhD thesis and argument its relevant for the Semantic Web area.
  • Describe the state of the art, emphasizing the need for improvement and the feasibility of your approach.
  • Summarize the expected contributions and outline the real-world use cases (applications, target audience) which will mainly benefit from your work.
  • Sketch the research methodology that you have adopted (or you are planning to adopt), in particular your approach to evaluating/validating the results.
  • Describe your proposed approach, clearly differentiating between the results achieved so far, the remaining work and the (planned) evaluation.
  • Compare and contrast your approach with other existing approaches, in particular highlighting the shortcomings of other approaches, which your approach is planning to tackle.
  • Conclude your summary with an outline of the planned future work.

Papers should not exceed 5 pages. They should be formatted according to the format and submitted as PDF documents per mail to simperl at inf.fu-berlin.de. Applicants should also specify how long they have worked on their doctoral work.

All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two members of the scientific advisory board. The submissions will be reviewed against the following criteria (in this order):


  • Novelty and originality of the research work.´
  • Rigorousness and scientific soundness of the overall approach and of the results so far.
  • Clarity of the presentation.
  • Relevance of the work with respect to the Semantic Web field.

The selected participants will be given the opportunity to open their work up to discussion in front of other students and an expert audience (either in a regular presentation session or in a poster session). Each accepted contribution will be assigned to a scientific advisor who will provide extended feedback to the presented research achievements and to the accuracy of the applied methodology. A template for structuring the paper presentations will be be provided after the final program of the symposium has been set up. In addition to full papers, a limited number of papers will be accepted as posters, for which the authors will be required to submit a 2 page version of the original submission due to the camera-ready deadline.

For accepted submissions (full papers and posters), at least one author must register for the symposium in order for the paper to appear in the proceedings and to be scheduled in the program. Accepted papers and posters will be published online at CEUR Workshop Proceedings.

Symposium Program

The symposium is scheduled as a full-day event on June, 6 09:00 - 18:00. It will consist of full paper presentations and a poster session. Each full paper will be presented in a talk of 25 minutes (15 minutes presentation, 10 minutes discussion). In order to give time for discussions and feedback we recommend each presenter to seriously consider the 15 minutes time frame allocated for the talk (between 8-12 slides). As a general template for the presentations the speakers could use the following structure:

  • Problem statement (1-2 slides)
  • Research questions and expected contributions (1 slide)
  • Proposed solution (4-6 slides)
  • Evaluation or evaluation plans (1-2 slides)
  • Future work (1 slide)
