Submit full research papers, application papers, presentation abstracts, and posters Now!

  • Research papers: up to 12 pages that report on original research, and / or novel methodology that have led to significant outcomes with potential for lasting impact. Papers should demonstrate theoretical soundness of the research and/or strong evaluation.
  • Application papers: up to 6 pages that report on original research with successful application demonstrated by an improvement over existing methods. Papers may include systems level approaches using established methodology in a novel application domain.
  • Presentation Abstracts: Abstracts of up to 500 words reporting on ongoing projects that have met key project milestones but are not ready for fully documented disclosure. Submissions may also describe funded research proposals.
  • Posters: Abstracts of 500 words reporting on early research results focusing on the design and application of semantic technologies in life science scenarios. Priority will be given to submissions offering a functional demo that can be shown at the conference.

A small number of travel fellowships may be available to students presenting posters at the conference. Announcements will be made to poster authors after the poster deadline closes.
