Call for Papers

Aims and Scope
Knowledge Graph deals with fragmented knowledge from heterogeneous, autonomous information sources for complex and evolving relationships, in addition to domain expertise. The 11th IEEE International Conference on Knowledge Graph (ICKG-2020), provides a premier international forum for presentation of original research results in Knowledge Graph opportunities and challenges, as well as exchange and dissemination of innovative, practical development experiences. The conference covers all aspects of Knowledge Graph, including algorithms, software, platforms, and applications for knowledge graph construction, maintainence, and inference. ICKG 2020 draws researchers and application developers from a wide range of Knowledge Graph related areas such as knowledge engineering, big data analytics, statistics, machine learning, pattern recognition, data mining, knowledge visualization, high performance computing, and World Wide Web. By promoting novel, high quality research findings, and innovative solutions to challenging Knowledge Graph problems, the conference seeks to continuously advance the state-of-the-art in Knowledge Graph.

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society. Awards will be conferred at the conference on the authors of the best paper and the best student paper. A selected number of best papers will be invited for possible inclusion, in an expanded and revised form, in the Knowledge and Information Systems Journal and the Journal of Database Management (special issue: Knowledge Graph and Deep Learning).

Submission Guidelines
Paper submissions should be no longer than 8 pages, in the IEEE 2-column format , including the bibliography and any possible appendices. Submissions longer than 8 pages will be rejected without review. All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance to Knowledge Graph, originality, significance, and clarity. You can choose to identify a Track Topic number in your submission title (e.g.,your_paper_title-Track01) during submission.

All manuscripts are submitted as full papers and are reviewed based on their scientific merit. The reviewing process is confidential. There is no separate abstract submission step. There are no separate industrial, a pplication, short paper or poster tracks. Manuscripts must be submitted electronically in online submission system. We do not accept email submissions.
