Hi everybody,

Apologies for cross-postings. Just a quick reminder that the tutorial
proposals are due in next week: May 6!

Call for Tutorial Proposals
10th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2011)
October 23 - 27, 2011
Bonn, Germany

The International Semantic Web Conference is the primary conference on the
use of semantic technologies on the web, constantly attracting a high number
of high quality submissions participants from academia and industry. It
brings together researchers from different areas of computer science, like
artificial intelligence, databases, natural language process, information
retrieval and others that aim at the development and use of novel
technologies for accessing, interpreting and using information on the web in
a more effective way.

Besides the main technical programme, ISWC will host a number of tutorials
on topics related to the general theme of the conference. The role of the
workshops is to provide a platform for a more intensive scientific exchange
amongst researchers interested in a particular topic and as a meeting point
for the community. The workshops should provide the opportunity to present
and discuss ongoing work and new ideas in subfield of Semantic Web research.

In order to meet these goals, tutorials should address topics that satisfy
the following criteria:

the topic falls in the general scope of ISWC 2011
there is a clear focus on a specific technology, problem or application
there is a sufficiently large community interested in the topic

In particular, we encourage the submission of tutorial proposals on:

fundamental problems of the semantic web such as heterogeneity, scalability
and distribution
applications of Semantic Web technologies in specific domains
important enabling technologies and their adaptation to the needs of the
Semantic Web
aspects of semantic web research that have been neglected so far

Additionally, we expect tutorials to:

be held by experts in the field that have a track record clearly
indicating their leading position in the area have practical parts in terms
of examples or preferably exercises to be carried out by the participants

Proposers of accepted tutorials have to prepare a tutorial webpage
containing detailed information about the tutorial.

Important Dates
