The Vocabulary Carnival (Vocarnival) at SEMANTiCS 2018 is a unique opportunity for vocabulary publishers to showcase and share their work, meet the growing community of vocabulary publishers and users, and build useful semantic, technical and social links. The Vocarnival forms part of the SEMANTiCS programme with the Carnival Minute Madness and the marketplace.
Which are the expected vocabulary types?
All types! A very wide vocabulary definition applies to this competition, including ontologies, classifications, thesauri, concept and metadata schemes, independently of their format, be it RDF or not.
When is the submission deadline?
The submission deadline is set for September 3, 2018, 23:30 CET time.
Get familiar with the technical requirements and the presentation format for your vocabulary submission. Afterwards, follow the steps below and get honored by a special prize if you have one of the best three posters. The winners will be announced during the respective Vocarnival Session at SEMANTiCS 2018. Please find all information here: https://2018.semantics.cc/vocabulary-carnival
