> 2nd Call for Software Solutions: ASWC2008 Industrial Track - Best Solutions
> to get Cash Prizes !!!
>
> Semantic Web and Semantic Web technologies have entered the maturity phase
> where stable software prototypes can be put forward as possible solutions
> for various business applications. The Industrial Track within ASWC 2008 is
> making a Call for Software Solutions, where inventors and authors have the
> opportunity to present an early positioning on the market of their solution,
> being comprised of a business value proposition for their offering and
> high-level technical description of the proposed solution. The goals of the
> track are threefold: first to give the opportunity for inventors/authors to
> expose their solution proposition to an audience made of business/industry
> and academia - a very first business pitch,  second to allow business,
> academia and inventors to attend thematic  round-tables where to
> debate/exchange business and research issues and third, to allow all
> participants at ASWC2008 to attend a business networking event, where the
> attendees have a chance to interact in an informal manner. (
> http://aswc2008.ait.ac.th/solutions.html)
>
> CASH PRIZES are going to be offered for the BEST SOLUTIONS as follows:
>
> Best Solution: 3,000 Euro;

> Submissions:
>
> The industrial track of ASWC2008 welcomes the submission of maximum 6 pages
> document, PDF format only, LNCS guidelines, describing proposed solutions
> related to Semantic Web and Semantic Web technologies. The document must
> have a first section where to describe the business value proposition for
> their offering, a second section positioning the solution on the market and
> a third one where to describe at high level the technical solution proposal.
> The proposed solutions have to be designated as belonging to one of the
> following areas:
>
> Area A - Innovative solutions: Here new ideas and/or patents already filed
> as well as open-source solution that start to gather critical mass are
> strongly encouraged to be presented.
> Area B - Commercialization phase: Solutions describing a novel application
> of a new capability in an industrial setting. Innovation projects can be
> reported here prior to full deployment (e.g., as pilots or proofs of
> concept).
> Area C - Deployed applications: Papers must describe a deployed usage of
> semantic technologies to a real-world problem, including a description of
> the application and scope of the user base. A performance / qualitative
> comparison of the employed semantic solution to competing conventional
> technologies solutions is desired. This will be considered as a plus factor
> in selecting the best solutions.
