7th Extended Semantic Web Conference
30 May - 3 June 2010 | Heraklion, Greece

General chair:
Lora Aroyo, VU University Amsterdam, NL

Program chairs:
Grigoris Antoniou, University of Crete, GR
Eero Hyvönen, Helsinki University of Technology, FI

============================ Call for Papers  
============================

The mission of the Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC2010) is to  
bring together researchers and practitioners dealing with different  
aspects of semantics on the Web.
ESWC2010 builds on the success of the former European Semantic Web  
Conference series, but seeks to extend its focus by collaborating with  
other communities and research areas, in which web semantics play an  
important role ‐‐ within and outside ICT. At the same time,  
ESWC2010 is a truly international conference, not only "European".

Semantics of web content, enriched with domain theories (ontologies),  
data about web usage, natural language processing, etc. will enable a  
web that provides a qualitatively new level of functionality. It will  
weave together a large network of human knowledge and make this  
knowledge machine‐processable. Various automated services, based on  
reasoning with
metadata and ontologies, will help the users to achieve their goals by  
accessing and processing information in machine‐understandable form.  
This network of knowledge systems will ultimately lead to truly  
intelligent systems, which will be employed for various complex  
decision‐making tasks. Research about web semantics can benefit from  
ideas and cross‐fertilization with many other areas: Artificial  
Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Database and Information  
Systems, Information Retrieval, Multimedia, Distributed Systems,  
Social Networks, Web Engineering, and Web Science.

ESWC2010 will present the latest results in research and applications  
in its field. The research program will be organised in targeted  
research tracks. In addition, the conference will feature a tutorial  
program, system descriptions and demos, a posters track, a Ph.D.  
symposium, and a number of collocated workshops. The individual calls  
for these events can be found on the conference Web site (http://www.eswc2010.org/ 
).

=================== Conference Tracks and Submissions  
===================

To reflect its extended scope, the ESWC2010 research program is  
organised in a number of tracks. Their specific topics of interest and  
submission addresses are listed on the conference website: http://www.eswc2010.org/calls

The proceedings of this conference will be published in Springer's  
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Paper submission and  
reviewing for ESWC2010 will be electronic via the conference  
submissions site. Papers should not exceed fifteen (15) pages in  
length and must be formatted according to the information for LNCS  
authors.

Papers must be submitted in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format)  
format and will *not* be accepted in any other format. Papers that  
exceed 15 pages or do not follow the LNCS guidelines risk being  
rejected automatically without a review. Authors of accepted papers  
will be required to provide semantic annotations for the abstract of  
their submission ‐‐ details of this process will be provided on the  
conference Web page at the time of
acceptance. At least one author of each accepted paper must register  
for the conference.

Each paper must be submitted to the most appropriate of the eight  
research tracks:
