>>  Paper formats:
>>       Research/Case Study papers: 8-10 pages, CHI Archive format

>>       Position papers: 3-4 pages, CHI Extended Abstract format
>>          (http://chi2008.org/formatting.html#extended-abstract)
>>
>>  Workshop Theme
>>
>>  The Semantic Web is not a Web of documents, but a Web of structured and
>>  interlinked data.  Creating interfaces for interacting with this data is
>>  difficult because there is no well-defined web "page" or homogeneous
>>  structure to the data.  Creating data is at least as important as presenting
>>  it, so facilitating efficient and effective data entry is an important
>>  aspect of user interaction.
>>
>>  This workshop seeks to identify key challenges in a usability research
>>  agenda for the Semantic Web and to explore the contributions that the CHI
>>  community can make to address them.  Papers are invited on any relevant
>>  topic, including:
>>
>>  * Case studies that can help inform the practical achievement of
>>   usable Semantic Web browsers and applications
>>
>>  * New tools for collaboration, including ways of visualizing virtual
>>   organizations and relationships
>>
>>  * New tools that use Semantic Web data to add or improve interface
>>   functionality
>>
>>  * New interfaces for authoring content, ontologies and metadata
>>
>>  * New approaches for defining or representing user context in ways
>>   that influence data seeking/use
>>
>>  * Methodologies for the formative and summative evaluation of Semantic
>>   Web user interfaces
>>
>>  * Methodologies for requirements gathering, design and development
>>
>>  In addition, the Linking Open Data project has large interlinked data sets
>>  available that designers/researchers may wish to try as test sets for
>>  interface experiments.  We encourage you to explore these resources.  See
>>  http://esw.w3.org/topic/SweoIG/TaskForces/CommunityProjects/LinkingOpenData.
>>
>>  Participating in the workshop:
>>
>>  We are accepting three types of submissions, which are due by 14th December
>>  (see dates below).  Acceptance of your submission is required for attendance
>>  at this workshop.
>>
>>  1. Case studies - describing projects and applications that present novel
>>  interaction approaches and include discussion of how users are involved in
>>  analysis, design, and evaluation.  Where possible, demonstrations are
>>  encouraged.
>>
>>  2. Research papers - describing specific research activities in any area
>>  that relates to user interaction directly.  Again, where possible,
>>  demonstrations are encouraged.
>>
>>  3. Position papers - articulating a user interaction or methodological
>>  position/issue that presents a contribution to workshop discussion, by which
>>  we are able to advance the subject overall. Papers that outline
>>  bridges/integration between disciplines are encouraged.
>>
>>  All papers submitted will be reviewed by the workshop committee. Please note
>>  the criteria we use when reviewing papers:
