The conference on Ontologies, DataBases, and Applications of Semantics for Large Scale Information Systems (ODBASE’18) provides a forum on the use of ontologies, rules and data semantics in novel applications. Of particular relevance to ODBASE are papers that bridge traditional boundaries between disciplines such as artificial intelligence and Semantic Web, databases, data science, data analytics and machine learning, human-computer interaction, social networks, distributed and mobile systems, data and information retrieval, knowledge discovery, and computational linguistics.
ODBASE’18 intends to draw a highly diverse body of researchers and practitioners by being part of the Federated conferences Event "On the Move to Meaningful Internet Systems 2018 (OnTheMove'18)" that co-locates three conferences: ODBASE'18, C&TC'18 (International Symposium on Secure Virtual Infrastructures), and CoopIS'18 (International Conference on Cooperative Information Systems).
ODBASE 2018 will consider two categories of papers: research and experience. Research papers must contain novel, unpublished research results. Experience papers must describe performance or usability of existing real-world systems, empirical studies, business / industry cases with (proven) solutions / systems for applied technological challenges, and concrete results demonstrating real-world importance and impact; preference will be given to papers that describe software products or systems that are in use in the community and/or the industry.
