>>> 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)

>>> 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.
