                    Second Call for Posters/Demos

     3rd European Semantic Web Conference, Budva, Montenegro 2006
                         http://www.eswc2006.org

Important Dates
---------------

Submission due: 1, March, 2006
Notification:   7, April, 2006
Camera-Ready:   2, May, 2006

Topics of Interest
------------------

ESWC is the primary European conference on topics related to the
Semantic Web. It covers all aspects of Semantic Web research and
development. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

     * Ontology Management (e.g. creation, evolution, evaluation)
     * Ontology Alignment (e.g. mapping, matching, merging,
       mediation and reconciliation)
     * Ontology Learning and Metadata Generation (including e.g.
       HLT and ML approaches)
     * Multimedia and Semantic Web
     * Semantic Annotation of Data
     * Semantic Web Trust, Privacy, Security and Intellectual
       Property Rights
     * Semantic Web Rules and Query Languages
     * Reasoning on the Web (e.g. scalability, fuzziness,
       distribution)
     * Searching, Querying, Visualizing, Navigating and Browsing the
       Semantic Web
     * Personalization and User Modelling
     * User Interfaces and Semantic Web
     * Semantic Grid and Middleware
     * Semantic Web Services (e.g. description, discovery,
       invocation, composition)
     * Semantic Web-based Knowledge Management (e.g. Semantic
       Desktop, Knowledge Portals)
     * Semantic Web for e-Business, e-Culture, e-Government,
       e-Health, e-Learning, e-Science
     * Database Technologies for the Semantic Web
     * Data Semantics and Web Semantics
     * Semantic Interoperability
     * Semantic Web Mining

Besides the scientific and industrial paper track, ESWC asks for
poster and demonstration contribution that will be presented in a
special session during the conference.

Requested Contributions
-----------------------

We are looking for contributions whose nature make them less
suited for submission to the official paper track. We would like
to emphasize this point and make clear that the poster and demo
session is more than a second chance for a rejected paper. In
particular, we ask for contributions of the following kind.

Late-breaking and Speculative Results:

Significant and original ideas with promising approaches to resolve
open problems in Semantic Web research that are in an early stage
and have not been verified and tested sufficiently to meet the
requirements of a scientific publication. Submissions in this area
will be evaluated like a scientific paper but limited to the
aspects of originality, relevance and significance.

Descriptions of System Demonstrations:

Descriptions (preferably accompanied by demonstration) of new
systems that use Semantic Web technology to solve important real
world problems. We are also looking for software infrastructure
supporting the development of systems that use Semantic Web
technologies. Systems will be evaluated based on novelty and
significance of the application as well as the use of Semantic Web
technologies for solving the problem. The main criteria for
contributions on infrastructure is successful use in existing
applications as well as uniqueness of the provided services.

Projects and Initiatives:

Descriptions of the objectives and results of ongoing projects and
initiatives. The aim is to provide an overview of ongoing work in
the area of the Semantic Web. Contributions in this area will be
evaluated based on the importance and uniqueness of the
objectives. Further criteria for project descriptions are the
significance of results. Descriptions of initiatives will also be
evaluated with respect to the expected impact on the community.

Submissions
-----------

ESWC 2006 welcomes your submission to the poster and demo session.
Descriptions of the poster and/or demonstration is due
March 1st, 2006 and should not exceed two (2) pages in the ACM SIG
format (http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html).
Please send your submission electronically to

Holger Wache, e-mail: holger@cs.vu.nl

We accept only submissions in the PDF format. Your submission will
be reviewed at least by two reviewers according to the criteria
specified above; so please label your submission as either a demo
or poster.

Please note: Demo and poster submissions will be published in a
separate proceedings and will be handed out to participants of ESWC.

For questions please send an email to holger@cs.vu.nl
