CALL FOR PAPERS
ACM SAC 2022 Track on Knowledge Graphs
The 37th ACM/SIGAPP Symposium on Applied Computing
April 25 - April 29, 2022, Brno, Czech Republic
Knowledge graph is essentially the knowledge base of semantic web, which is composed of entities (nodes) and relations (edges). As the representation of semantics, knowledge graphs can readily-easily formulate real-world entities, concepts, attributes, as well as their relations. All the specific features of knowledge graphs make it born with strong expressive ability and flexible modelling ability. At the same time, as a special kind of graph data, knowledge graphs are both human-readable and machine-friendly. With effective knowledge representation approaches, a variety of tasks can be resolved, including knowledge extraction, knowledge integration, knowledge management, and knowledge applications. Therefore, knowledge graphs have been applied in various domains such as information retrieval, natural language understanding, question answering systems, recommender systems, financial risk control, etc. However, new challenges have emerged in the context of knowledge graphs from many perspectives including scalability, explainability, robustness, etc.
The track will bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss the fundamentals, methodologies, techniques, and applications of knowledge graphs. In this track, our goal is to contribute to the next generation of knowledge graphs and exploring them using artificial intelligence, data science, machine learning, network science, and other appropriate technologies.
Topics of interest include but not limited to:
-Foundations and understanding of knowledge graphs
-Models and algorithms for knowledge graph construction and representation
-Large-scale graph algorithms and theories
-AI for/over knowledge graphs
-Misinformation or disinformation
-Privacy and security
-Fairness, transparency, explainability, and robustness
-Datasets and benchmarking
-Knowledge graphs in various domains
-Innovative applications of knowledge graphs
Submission deadline: October 15, 2021
Notification to authors: December 10, 2021
Camera-ready copies of accepted papers: December 21, 2021
Author registration due date: December 21, 2021
Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished papers of research and applications for this track. The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the paper, and self-reference should be in the third person. This is to facilitate double-blind review.
Full papers are limited to 8 pages with the option for up to 2 additional pages. Papers must be formatted according to the ACM SAC template. For full submission guidelines, please follow the instructions on the ACM SAC 2022 website (https://www.sigapp.org/sac/sac2022/). Please submit your papers via the SAC 2022 submission system. When submitting, select Track on Knowledge Graphs.
Poster Publication of Selected Papers: Papers that received high reviews but were not accepted due to space limitations can be invited for the poster session and will be published as short papers in the symposium proceedings. Posters are limited to 3 pages with the option for up to one additional page.
