Workshop on Negative or Inconclusive rEsults in Semantic web (NoISE 2015)
Every Semantic Web researcher has been there: you spend days of work, but the results just don’t give the answer you were hoping for. The work ends up, like so many, part of the File Drawer Effect: they never get reported because of negative or inconclusive outcome. This occurs as a result of a publication bias towards positive results in Semantic Web, as in other fields. However, negative or inconclusive results are fundamental to the research process and can be as valuable as positive results.
This workshop provides a forum for such attempted approaches, methodologies, or implementations. Researchers are urged to report null, disappointing or inconclusive attempts in the Semantic Web and Linked Open Data research field. We specifically target sound approaches and, scientifically and technically relevant contributions, that produced negative or inconclusive experimental results.
