Meeting Description:

The International Semantic Intelligence Conference (ISIC) is an international platform for Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Semantic Web communities. It aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, and industry specialists to discuss, advance, and shape the future of intelligent systems by virtue of machine learning and semantic technologies. Over the last decade, the notion of ontology has become prominent in the field of linguistics also. Both the fields give and take something from each other.

The International Semantic Intelligence Conference (ISIC 2021) will allow remote participation. The registration cost for remote participation will be decreased by 30% in every category.

ISIC 2021 accepts submissions of all the three types, the comprehensive overview of the topic, the review/survey of the topic, or the research results/findings. The conference aims to establish itself as one of the best venues to publish the research findings with a publishing possibility in journals with major indices.
