Workshop Structure

A keynote address from an invited speaker will open the day. This will be followed by paper presentations. We will hold a poster and demo session to trigger further, more in-depth interaction between workshop participants. The workshop will terminate with brief presentations of the outcome of a ' Named Entity Extraction & Linking Challenge' challenge, sponsored by LinkedTV.

NEEL Challenge submissions –

All written submissions should include author names and affiliations, an abstract and 3-5 keywords.
Submission is via the EasyChair Conference System. Where a submission includes additional material submission should be made as a single, unencrypted zip file that includes a plain text file listing its contents.

Each submission will receive, in addition to a meta-review, at least 2 peer reviews, with full papers at least 3 peer reviews.


Note also, in order to be included in proceedings as part of the WWW conference, the following applies:
Any paper published by the ACM, IEEE, etc. which can be properly cited constitutes research which must be considered in judging the novelty of a WWW submission, whether the published paper was in a conference, journal, or workshop. Therefore, any paper previously published as part of a WWW workshop must be referenced and suitably extended with new content to qualify as a new submission to the Research Track at the WWW conference.
