Hi Sarven,

We've been following the discussion and saw your request ...

For the COLD 2013 Workshop (@ISWC) [1], aside from requiring PDFs, we 
will also allow submission of optional Web-based materials, such as 
HTML, XHTML+RDFa, Turtle, ontologies, videos, etc. It is up to the 
authors to decide if they want to submit such material and if so, in 
what format or for what purpose. Such material will be hosted and/or 
linked from our workshop web-page (which is a source of RDFa-based 
Linked Data) [1].

We're not sure what kinds of material authors will see fit to submit, so 
this is effectively an experiment for us. Let's see if authors decide to 
make use of this option and if so, how.

Best regards,
COLD 2013 Organisers
