ESWC09: Call for demonstrations

ESWC is the leading European conference on theory, practice and
applications of Semantic Web technologies, attracting an
increasing number of participants from various communities and

The 6th Annual European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC2009) will
take place in Heraklion, Greece, from 31st of May to 4th of
June 2009, and will present the latest results in research and
applications of Semantic Web technologies:

The demonstrations track of the ESWC2009 complements the overall
program of the conference with demonstrations of real-world,
proven-and-tested advances of semantic technologies. In addition
to papers and posters presenting latest theoretical achievements
the ESWC2009 is seeking demonstrations of novel applications of
semantics in various sectors, as well as innovative enabling
technologies and deployment infrastructures relevant for the
topics of interest of the main conference and the research and
poster tracks.

Submissions to the demonstrations track must be in form of a
textual description of the demonstration to be given at the
conference. The submissions must be maximally 5 pages long and
formatted according to the Springer LNCS style. They should be
submitted as PDF using the conference submission system.

Accepted submissions to the demonstrations track will be
published as part of the ESWC2009 proceedings. As such, the
quality assurance will be strict, and the demonstrations will
be subject to review by a separate Program Committee. Proposed
demonstrations must show relevance, novelty and significance to
the topics of the conference. The associated textual
descriptions should contain sections explicitly answering the
following questions:

   1. What is the research background and application context of the
   2. What is the key technology used, and how does the demonstrated system,
application or infrastructure relate to pre-existing work?
   3. What exactly will be demonstrated? What exactly will a visitor of the
demonstration learn?

Failure to address the above questions will be negatively considered by the
program committee.
