The Joint International Semantic Technology Conference (JIST) is a regional federation of Semantic Technology related conferences. The mission of JIST is to bring together researchers in Semantic Technology research community and other areas of semantic related technologies to present their innovative research results or novel applications of semantic technologies.

JIST 2014, under the theme “Open Data and Semantic Technology”, solicits the submission of original research papers on Semantic Web and other semantic technologies, as well as papers on applications of semantic technologies.
