[ESWC2015] Second Call For Demos

Call for Demos

The demonstrations track of the ESWC 2015 complements the overall program
of the conference with demonstrations of real-world, applied-and-tested
advances of semantic technologies. In addition to papers and posters
presenting latest theoretical achievements, ESWC 2015 is seeking
demonstrations of novel applications of semantics in various sectors,
including: eGovernment,  eEnvironment, eMobility and smart cities, eHealth,
Life Sciences, Sensor networks and RDF Stream Processing, Linked Science,
Media and entertainment, Telecommunications, Cultural heritage, Financial
services, Energy and utilities, Manufacturing, Digital libraries, Cloud
applications, Personal Information Management, Decision support, Emergency
and crisis management etc.

The demonstrations track is an opportunity for researchers and
practitioners to present their innovative prototypes, practical
developments, on-going projects, lessons learned and late-breaking results,
relevant for the topics of interest of the main conference and the research
and poster tracks.

Submissions to the demonstrations track should make clear what will be
demonstrated, and in particular point out what makes the demonstration a
novel showcase. A video of the demo should be provided if a link to the
demonstrator is not available.  Submission should also specify:
* What is the research background and application context of the
demonstration, and what makes this a novel showcase for semantic
* What is the key technology used, and how does the demonstrated system,
application or infrastructure relate to pre-existing work.
* What exactly will be demonstrated? What exactly will a visitor of the
demonstration learn?

Prize and minute madness

provided to the authors of accepted submissions.

Submission Guidelines
Submissions to the demonstrations track must be in the form of a textual
description of the demonstration to be given at the conference (which may

Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance to the Semantic Web
