Call for papers

Important dates

Please, avoid registration procedures during the summer. The University of Zaragoza is expected to be closed from August 1 to August 14, 2018, and with more limited support for administrative services since mid-July until the end of August.

Aim and topics

SMAP 2018 aims to address several issues of semantic and social multimedia technologies and their use in content creation, media adaptation and user profiling. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Special Session on Navigation and Understanding of Big Linked Data

In addition, a Special Session on Navigation and Understanding of Big Linked Data will be held within the context of SMAP 2018. If you are submitting a paper to this special session, please indicate so through EasyChair or notify the organizers.

Overview of the special session

Today, we are assisting at a staggering growth in the production and consumption of Linked Open Data (LOD) and in the generation of increasingly large datasets. In this scenario, it is crucial to provide special tools for researchers, domain experts, but also businessmen and citizens to understand and interact with LOD resources. In this special session, emphasis is drawn on the way data linked datasets might be selected by looking among the diverse open data portals, explored in order to understand their contents and queried to extract meaningful information for the user. Special emphasis is put on facilitating personalized knowledge extraction and in creating effective data visualizations.
