I am chairing the conference and I have invited Susie to give a keynote speech - she has accepted so I guess SWEO has a good platform at the event! Perhaps we could additionally consider some kind of stand at the event? Minimally, we should have a flyer to distribute or perhaps get the flyer included in every delegate's conference pack?

I should probably step out of the loop now given that I have a foot in both camps. I would encourage whoever takes this up from the group to contact Hans-Peter Schurr (schnurr@ontoprise.de)from ontoprise since he is responsible for exhibition and sponsorship.

Regards,
John.

I was wondering whether one of our European group members are in position to offer a tutorial for this conference.

I am not fully familiar with the details of this event (maybe some of you may know more!). If it is the European Counterpart of the Semantic Technology Conference (the one held in the Silicon Valley every year), then it may be important for us to be around.

For family reasons it would be a bit complicated for me to go there in that time range. And we should try to build up a 'speaker pool' at least on both sides of the pond who could represent SWEO in general. Any taker?

Ivan

Accepted tutorials will receive one free registration to the ESTC 2007 (full registration incl. tutorial, workshop, conference, reception and conference dinner). Workshop attendees must pay the ESTC 2007 workshop registration fee.

Tutorial proposed for the ESTC 2007 should cover one topic in appropriate depth (see ESTC 2007 topics of interest below), and present this in a appropriate way that enables especially practitioners in industry to better understand and apply rapidly the state of art Semantic Web technologies. Furthermore, we strongly encourage parts of tutorials to be hands-on sessions that allow attendees to have time and support to have hands-on presented technologies.


Tutorial proposals should not exceed 3 pages in A4 format and need to contain the following information:
1. Title and Abstract (200 maximum; to be published on ESTC 2007 website) 2. Description (aims, content, presentation style, technical requirements, hands-on activities) 3. Relevance of the tutorial to foster education of the practitioners in Industry 4. Outline of tutorial content and schedule 5. A list of related tutorials held in the last 3 years, or to be held in 2007 6. Information on presenters (name, affiliation, expertise, experiences in teaching and tutorial presentation) 7. A description of the qualifications of the proposed organizing committee (e.g., papers published in the proposed topic area, previous tutorials organization, other relevant information).

Each tutorial organizing committee will be responsible for the following:
* Producing a web page and a "Call for Participation" for their tutorial.
* Providing a brief description of the workshop for the conference web page and program.
* Advertising the tutorial beyond the conference web page.
