*The annual SEMANTiCS conference*(formerly known as I-Semantics) is the 
meeting place for professionals who make semantic computing work, and 
understand its benefits and know its limitations. Every year, SEMANTiCS 
attracts information managers, IT-architects, software engineers and 
researchers from organisations ranging from NPOs, public administrations 
to the largest companies in the world. Attendees learn from industry 
experts and top researchers about emerging trends and topics in semantic 
software, enterprise data, linked data & open data strategies and 
methodologies in knowledge modeling and text & data analytics. The 
SEMANTiCS community is highly diverse; attendees have responsibilities 
interlinking areas like knowledge management, technical documentation, 
e-commerce, big data analytics, enterprise search, document management, 
business intelligence, and enterprise vocabulary management.

SEMANTiCS 2014 continues a long tradition of bringing together 
colleagues from around the world to present best practices, panels, 
papers and posters to discuss semantic systems in birds-of-a-feather 
sessions and informal settings. SEMANTICS addresses problems common 
among information managers, software engineers, IT-architects and 
various specialist departments working to develop, implement and/or 
evaluate semantic software systems.

The SEMANTiCS program is a rich mix of technical talks, panel 
discussions of important topics, and presentations by people who make 
things work - just like you. In addition, attendees can network with 
experts in a variety of fields. These relationships provide great value 
to organisations as they encounter subtle technical issues. The 
expertise gained by SEMANTiCS attendees has a long-term impact on their 
careers and organisations. These factors make SEMANTiCS the major 
industry related event for our community.

*Preparing your presentation*

All accepted submissions will be granted a presentation slot of

  *

    *30 minutes*(25 min. Presentation + 5 min. Discussion).

only way we can guarantee a smooth and satisfying programme and allow 
all conference participants to attend as many slots as possible without 
missing important information.

*Please take care to address the following aspects in your talk:*

  *

    Initial Situation

/What kind of challenge did you face in the beginning oft the project? 
What problems were needed to be solved?/

  *

    Approach and IT-Solution

/Which approach and methodology has been chosen to tackle the 
problem(s)? How is your solution composed with respect to technological 
aspects / human aspects / organisational aspects? How do the semantic 
components support the process from data to knowledge?/

  *

    Success Criteria for / Benefit of the Semantic Solution

/Which factors (conscious and unconscious) have been crucial to the 
success of your project? Which obstacles did you face? How can you 
measure the benefit of your solution? How does the organisation benefit 
from your solution?/

  *

    Prospects and Recommendations

/What are the next steps planned in your project? Can you give 
recommendations with respect to development / deployment of semantic 
solutions within organisational / corporate settings?/

  *

    Demo

/Prepare a short demonstration of your tool / service./

In case your presentation will be accepted, we will provide you with 
detailed information on organisational matters according to the 
selection of submissions and conference participation (June 27, 2014).

Presenters will be granted access to the entire program of the SEMANTiCS 
Conference (incl. all social events) at a reduced rate. Additionally, 
presenters will have the possibility to discuss their contributions with 
an interested audience and exchange ideas how semantic technologies can 
be utilized for corporate and business needs more effectively and 
successfully. Besides that, the *Industry Presentations at 
SEMANTiCS*generate a high visibility within the Semantics Community and 
allow you to meet interesting experts and extend your business network.

We are looking forward to your contribution!
