ESWC 2016 Call For Demonstration Papers
May 29th - June 2nd, 2016
Anissaras, Crete, Greece

The Demonstrations Track of the ESWC 2016 complements the overall 
program of the conference with demos of real-world, applied-and-tested 
advances of semantic technologies. In addition to papers and posters 
presenting latest theoretical achievements, ESWC 2016 is seeking 
demonstrations of novel applications of semantics in various sectors, 
including: Urban Life and Mobility, eHealth, eGovernment, eEnvironment, 
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 covering also inter-sectorial 
aspects of Cognitive Computing, Data Semantics, and Natural Language 

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. The 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?
