Call for Regular Papers: International Journal of Semantic and
Infrastructure Services
ISSN online: 2051-5081
ISSN print: 2051-5073

The goal of IJSIS is to propose novel semantic approaches and technologies
and demonstrate how these help in improving big data management. It aims to
establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers,
government agencies, academic research institutions and persons concerned
with the complex role of data infrastructure in society. It also intends to
promote and coordinate developments in the field of semantic web and how
these improve data and information infrastructure. The international
dimension is emphasised in order to address the diversity of data and
information that spreads across national barriers and to meet the needs of
accelerating technological changes in a global economy.

IJSIS provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and
policy makers, working in the field of data management, semantic web and
computing infrastructure, to disseminate information and to learn from each
other's work. The intended audiences are data mining
researchers/practitioners; specialists in academia and industry; experts
who rely on computer tools for data integration, data management, data
analysis; mathematicians/statisticians who are interested in model
development and simulation for data; computer scientists; and post-graduate
students with interests in developing and/or applying novel
algorithms/methods in large-scale data management in any domain.

IJSIS publishes original papers, review papers, case studies, conference
reports and book reviews. Special Issues devoted to important topics in
semantics and infrastructure technology management will occasionally be

Topics covered include

• Big data and its management
• Data integration and interoperability
• Semantic web technologies and formalisms for data
• Language processing techniques/principles for building/maintaining
• Scientific workflows and data cloud
• Semantic image analysis
• Ontologies and semantic web tools
• Ontology representation and exchange languages
• Ontology-assisted extraction and information retrieval from text
• Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 applications
• Novel architectural models for high performance and cloud computing
• New parallel/concurrent programming models for high performance
• Data security, privacy and jurisdiction of applications in the cloud
• Interoperability between different utility computing platforms
• Semantics in platforms and software as a service
