Web. Both technical and survey/overview papers are solicited, as well

Paper Submission
----------------
The conference will include contributed papers, system presentations,
and invited lectures. There are three categories of submissions:


A. Research papers.

  Papers should not exceed fifteen (15) pages in Springer's LNCS
  format [4]. They should describe original research (practical or
  theoretical), or provide a survey/overview of an area of research
  that is contributing to the realisation of the Semantic Web. Note
  that longer system/application papers are welcome in this category.

B. Short system descriptions.

  Papers should not exceed five (5) pages in Springer's LNCS format
  [4]. They should describe an implemented tool or service that
  contributes to the realisation of the Semantic Web.

C. Position papers and reports on work in progress.

  Papers should not exceed five (5) pages in Springer's LNCS format
  [4]. They should consist of a brief statement of the author's
  position on some aspect of Semantic Web research, or describe work
  that is still in progress, but sufficiently mature to warrant
  attention.

Papers of category (A) and (B) must be original and not submitted
concurrently for publication to a journal or to another conference. In
the case of doubts on this point please contact the program chair.

Accepted papers will be published in Springer's LNCS series, both in
