Dear colleagues,

Please find below the second call for papers for the workshop on 
Semantic Deep Learning (SemDeep-17)  -- http://semdeep.iiia.csic.es/
Second Call for Papers for the ESWC Workshop on Semantic Deep Learning 
(SemDeep-17) *

**** DEADLINE Friday 3 March 2017 ALL submissions****

*Scope: *

Semantic Deep Learning aims to bring together Semantic Web and deep 
learning methods, technologies, and resources. Semantic Web and deep 
learning research share the goal of creating intelligent artefacts that 
emulate human capacities, such as reasoning, validating, and predicting. 
Both fields have been considerably impacting data and knowledge analysis 
as well as representation.

Deep learning represents a set of machine learning algorithms that learn 
data representations by means of transformations with multiple 
processing layers. This algorithmic set has frequently been applied to 
feature learning, such as morphological tagging or speaker verification. 
Semantic Web technologies and knowledge representation boost the re-use 
and sharing of knowledge in a structured and machine-readable fashion. 
Semantic resources, such as WikiData or BabelNet, and methods have been 
successfully applied to semantic data mining.

Machine learning has been successfully applied to (semi-automated) 
ontology learning, ontology alignment, ontology annotation, duplicate 
recognition, and ontology prediction. Ontologies have been repeatedly 
utilized as input to machine learning tasks and as background knowledge 
to guide such tasks. Hybrid approaches, such as knowledge graph 
embeddings, hold the potential of improving the effectiveness of 
knowledge-related tasks. This workshop offers a platform for discussing 
such hybrid approaches and for fostering future collaborations between 
those two fields.

*Workshop Topics:*

Topics of interest for papers, posters, and software demonstrations of 
original and unpublished work include, but are not limited to:

- learning and applying knowledge graph embeddings
-        deep learning and Semantic Web technologies for entity 
- deep learning technologies for ontology learning
-        embedding-based relation prediction
-        ontology matching and alignment using deep learning
-        word embeddings for learning annotations
-        ontology-based clustering
-        ontology-based classification
-        Deep Structured Semantic Models (DSSM) for the Semantic Web
-        deep learning and semantic data for
o Machine Translation,
