New Conference Dates & Submission Deadline Extended: June 15 (Anywhere on Earth)

Dear LOD Community!

Unfortunately, due to the current situation, we have to report changes to the conference dates. We thank you in advance for your patience and availability.

  • New dates for the LOD 2021:  October 4-8, 2021 

We would have been very happy to welcome you all to Grasmere in June 2021. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic we are forced to adjust the original plans. We will change the dates of the conference,  October 4-8, 2021. We will inform you as soon as the dates are confirmed.

  • Submission Deadline Extended

We have been forced to extend the dates. In addition to the current complex situation, we have received many requests to extend the submission deadlines:

Paper Submission Deadline: June 15 (Anywhere on Earth)

Which you can also find on the relevant page of the Conference website:




Obviously, those who have already submitted their article can update their submission until the new deadline.


  • Everything else will of course remain the same, as in previous LOD Editions.

Accepted papers will be published in the Springer  Nature Proceedings, in the LNCS series, as in previous editions.

Unfortunately, the current situation forces us to change our plans. These are difficult times; we have to adapt to the changes imposed by the pandemic. Unfortunately we have no choice. We are acting in the interests of the LOD community and the ML/AI/DS community at large.  We thank you for your availability and patience. We take the opportunity to ask for your advices, suggestions and changes. LOD is an open community always open to receive feedback and improvements. In these difficult times, the scientific community must be even more cooperative, must cooperate to deal rationally with these adversities. We ask for everyone’s support and cooperation.

Obviously, if the situation does not allow the event to take place in person, the event will instead be converted to a fully online mode.

Obviously, if ACDL 2021 will be converted into a fully online event,  participants who paid the onsite registration fee will be refunded the difference, and will thus only pay the online registration fee.

See you (in–person or virtually – in 3D or in 2D 🙂 ) in the Lake District – England  in October 2021!

The LOD 2021 Organising Committee.
