Final 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)

>> 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.
