CALL FOR PAPERS

SEMANTIC WEB IN USE TRACK

-------------
OVERVIEW
-------------

Submissions are invited to the Semantic Web In Use Track at the 6th
European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC2009), in Heraklion, Crete.

This refereed track aims to explore the benefits of applying Semantic
Web technology in real-life applications and contexts, and therefore
the emphasis of contributions to this track should be different to
that of submissions to the scientific track of ESWC2009.

While papers submitted to the scientific track may provide evidence of
scientific contribution through applications and evaluations (see 4.
and 5. of the conference Topics of Interest), papers submitted to the
Semantic Web In Use Track should be organised around some of or all of
the following aspects:

- Description of concrete problems in specific application domains,
for which Semantic Web technologies can provide a solution.
- Description of an implemented application of Semantic Web
technologies in a specific domain
- Assessment of the pros and cons of using Semantic Web technologies
to solve a particular business problem in a specific domain
- Comparison with alternative or competing approaches using
conventional or competing technologies
- Assessment of the costs and benefits of the application of Semantic
Web Technologies, e.g. time spent on implementation and deployment,
efforts involved, user acceptance, returns on investment
- Evidence of deployment of the application, and assessment/evaluation
of usage/uptake.
