PAPERS SUBMISSION: March 23 (Anywhere on Earth)
All papers must be submitted using EasyChair:

Please prepare your paper in English using the Springer Nature – Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) template, which is available here. Papers
must be submitted in PDF.

When submitting a paper to LOD 2022, authors are required to select one of
the following four types of papers:

* long paper: original novel and unpublished work (max. 15 pages in
Springer LNCS format);

* short paper: an extended abstract of novel work (max. 5 pages);

* work for oral presentation only (no page restriction; any format). For
example, work already published elsewhere, which is relevant, and which may
solicit fruitful discussion at the conference;

* abstract for poster presentation only (max 2 pages; any format). The
poster format for the presentation is A0 (118.9 cm high and 84.1 cm wide,
respectively 46.8 x 33.1 inch). For research work which is relevant, and
which may solicit fruitful discussion at the conference.

Each paper submitted will be rigorously evaluated. The evaluation will
ensure the high interest and expertise of reviewers. Following the
tradition of LOD, we expect high-quality papers in terms of their
scientific contribution, rigor, correctness, novelty, clarity, quality of
presentation and reproducibility of experiments.
Accepted papers must contain significant novel results. Results can be
either theoretical or empirical. Results will be judged on the degree to
which they have been objectively established and/or their potential for
scientific and technological impact.

It is also possible to present the talk virtually (Zoom).

*) Special Session on AI for Sustainability
We welcome  contributions on AI for Sustainable Development, AI for
Sustainable Urban Mobility, AI for Food Security, AI to fight
Deforestation, cutting-edge technology AI to create Inclusive and
Sustainable development that leaves no one behind.

*) Special Session on AI to help to fight Climate Change
AI is a new tool to help us better manage the impacts of climate change and
protect the planet. AI can be a “game-changer” for climate change and
environmental issues.

AI refers to computer systems that “can sense their environment, think,
learn, and act in response to what they sense and their programmed

We accept papers/short papers/talks at the intersection of climate change,
AI, machine learning and data science. AI, Machine Learning and Data
Science  can be invaluable tools both in reducing greenhouse gas emissions
and in helping society adapt to the effects of climate change.

We invite submissions  using AI, Machine Learning and/or Data Science to
address problems in climate mitigation/adaptation including but not limited
to the following topics:

* Industrial Session
Chair: Giovanni Giuffrida – Neodata.

* Special Session on Explainable Artificial Intelligence
Explainability is essential for users to effectively understand, trust, and
manage powerful artificial intelligence applications.
