	CALL FOR WORKSHOPS

ESWC 2007 invites the submission of workshop proposals on specific aspects of
the Semantic Web, particularly relating to the subject areas indicated by the
topics below. We encourage workshops which will discuss fundamental research
issues driven by academic interests or more applied industrial or commercial
concerns. The format of the workshop will be determined by the organizers.
Workshops can vary in length from a half day to a full day. Having more than
one co-organizer for a workshop is strongly advised. Accepted workshops will
receive one free registration to the ESWC 2007 (full registration incl.
tutorial, workshop, conference, reception and conference dinner). Workshop
attendees must pay the ESWC 2007 workshop registration fee.

    * Producing a web page and a "Call for Papers/Participation" for their
      workshop. The URL should be sent to the workshop chair. The call must make it
      clear that the workshop is open to all members of the Semantic Web community.
      It should also mention that at least one author of each accepted submission
      must attend the workshop and that all workshop participants must pay the ESWC
      2007 workshop registration fee, as well as the conference fee. Finally, it
      should also clearly describe the process by which the Organizing Committee will
      select the participants.  
    * Providing a brief description of the workshop for the conference web page and program.
    * Selecting the participants and the format of the workshop.
    * Advertising the workshop beyond the conference web page.
