The 14th IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC2020) addresses the derivation, description, integration, and use of semantics (“meaning”, “context”, “intention”) for all types of resource including data, document, tool, device, process and people. The scope of ICSC2020 includes, but is not limited to, analytics, semantics description languages and integration (of data and services), interfaces, and applications. The conference proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. Distinguished quality papers presented at the conference will be selected for publication in internationally renowned journals (SCI, EI, and/or Scoups indexed). ICSC2020 will also select and present a best paper award, a best student paper award, and a best student opponent award.
