> Call for Panel Proposals:
> -------------------------
>
> Proposal submission deadline: February 8, 2008
> Notification date: February 29, 2008
> Final panel description for inclusion in the proceedings: March 14,  
> 2008
>
> The ESWC is the leading European Conference on Theory, Practice and
> Applications of Semantic Web Technologies, constantly attracting a  
> high
> number of high
> quality submissions participants from academia and industry. For the
> first time, ESWC will host panels during the main technical programme.
>
> ESWC2008 panels should focus on emerging technologies, controversial
> issues, or unsolved problems in the Semantic Web community. Panels are
> expected to stimulate lively, thoughtful, and sometimes provocative
> discussions. Panelists are expected to actively engage the audience  
> and
> help them broaden their understanding of the issues.
>
> All areas of interests to ESWC participants are acceptable as a panel
> topic. Panel proposals will be accepted on the basis of their audience
> appeal, credentials of panelists, originality, and focus on  
> disputed topics.
>
> Panel Proposal Submission Procedure:
> ------------------------------------
>
> Panel proposals must include:
>
>     * Panel title
>     * Panel organizer(s)/moderator(s)
>     * Short description of the topic (suitable for inclusion in the
> program)
>     * Panel objective, scope, and target audience
>     * Extended abstract of the panel, including suitable references
>     * Panel format
>     * The names and affiliations of the panelists
>     * A statement for each panelist, indicating whether the panelist's
> participation is (a) confirmed or (b) pending in the case s/he has
> already been contacted and is not yet committed or (c) not yet  
> contacted.
>
> Please append short bios for moderator and each panelist, from whom
> prior approval to participate should be obtained. Each panel proposal
> should also indicate whether other similar panels have happened in  
> other
> recent conferences or workshops. If there have been similar panels  
> then
> the panel proposal should point out the differences between the  
> previous
> panels and the proposed panels.
>
> Proposals should be 4-6 pages long and can be submitted in either HTML
> or PDF. Please send proposals for ESWC2008 panels to  
> <raphael.troncy@cwi.nl>
>
> Panel formats:
> --------------
>
> Panels should last 90 minutes and typically include three to five
> panelists plus a moderator. Be creative about the panel format. A
> typical format includes:
>     * moderator introduction
>     * brief position statements by domain experts (It is essential  
> that
> this part of the panel does not exceed a total of 30 minutes.)
>     * discussions (at least 40 minutes)
>     * closing statements from panelists and moderator
>
> You are also welcome to use various forms of multimedia  
> presentations to
> help engage the audience.
>
> Duties of the Panel Moderator:
> ------------------------------
>
> The panel moderator is the most important participant in a panel. The
> moderator must take an active role during the panel to ensure that the
> panelists stay on time and on track and to stimulate debate.
>
> The most important part of the moderator's job, however, occurs well
> before the panel starts. It is the duty of the moderator to force the
> panelists to prepare lively and controversial initial presentations  
> and
> to be prepared for the debate part of the panel. Panel moderators thus
> must spend a significant amount of time "herding cats", i. e., getting
> the panelists to adequately prepare.
