[KGC 2022 CALL FOR WORKSHOPS AND TUTORIALS]
The Knowledge Graph Conference 2022
Call for Workshops and Tutorials is now open!
We’re looking for inspiring voices, ideas, and expertise from industry leaders and storytellers like yourself.
KGC2022 bridges the gap between industry, which is increasingly recognizing the necessity of connected data, and academia, where semantic technologies have been developing for many years. Our events, education, content, and community efforts facilitate meaningful exchange between diverse groups and increase awareness, development, and adoption of this powerful technology.
Connecting the dots is core to what we do, so show us how you’re connecting the dots through knowledge graphs.
For KGC 2022 we will be hosting a hybrid conference experience on May 2-5 2022 using a virtual platform and a physical venue in the heart of New York City. We welcome either virtual presentations or presentations given in person in New York City. The Knowledge Graph Conference welcomes both technical and non technical presentations.
If you would like to learn more about the tracks we presently have in mind for the program, please see the following link: https://tinyurl.com/2cv4s47h
Please note that we do not offer any paid opportunities to speakers, and these sessions are not for service and product pitches. If you’re interested in marketing your solutions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Upon acceptance, workshop organizers will expect to publicize the workshop and ensure the quality of its program through peer review of papers by the program committee. The conference will provide a venue for half a day or one day, as well as a page on the conference website to be edited by the workshop organizers. Workshop organizers and participants will also need to register for the conference.
Hands-on tutorials are designed to provide audiences with practical introductions to knowledge graphs related topics by practitioners. All levels are welcome, beginners and advanced alike. The format of tutorials will be a mix of lecturing and hands-on application of the techniques.
NOTE: Tutorials cannot be a sales pitch by a vendor.
The tutorial proposal should include:
