The 8th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2011) 

29th May - 2nd June 2011

Heraklion, Greece


The ESWC2011 PhD Symposium aims at providing starting PhD students with a
platform for receiving feedback on their work by other PhD Students and
experienced researchers outside their own group or university. The Symposium
aims at students doing their PhD in the area of semantic web technologies or
related topics, in particular, this includes the topics of the ESWC2011
special tracks.

    * Social Web and Web Science
    * Ontologies
    * Reasoning
    * Semantic Data Management
    * Linked Open Data
    * Software, Services, Processes and Cloud Computing
    * Natural Language Processing
    * Sensor Web
    * Mobile Web

Note, that submissions should have a clear focus on the use or the
development of semantic web technologies in or for at least one of these
areas. For more detailed information about possible topics we refer to the
Call for papers of the respective track. While the Symposium is open to all
PhD Students, it is first of all meant for PhD Students at the beginning of
their work that have a well defined problem statement and some ideas about
the solution that they want to discuss with.


Submissions should be structured around the following topics which are the
key methodological components required for a sound research narrative:

    * Problem: describe the core problem of the PhD and motivate its
relevance for the Semantic Web area;
    * State of the art: describe relevant related work and point out areas
that need to be improved;
    * Proposed Approach: present the approach taken and motivate how this is
novel with respect to existing work;
    * Methodology: sketch the methodology that is (or will be) adopted and,
in particular, the approach to be taken for evaluating the results of the
    * Results: describe the current status of the work and any results that
have been reached so far;
    * Conclusions and future work: conclude and specify the major items of
future work.

Note that students which have a paper accepted in the main research track on
a certain topic can still submit a paper in which they describe the overall
idea and status of their PhD following the template above.

Each submitted paper will be reviewed by a number of experienced researchers
that provide feedback on your plans and suggest future directions. The
Program committee will pick papers for oral and poster presentations.
Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of ESWC 2011 that are
published by Springer in the LNCS series. Further, authors of accepted
papers can apply for a travel grant. Details about the application will be
announced after the notification.

Submissions must be no longer than 5 pages and must be formatted in the
style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS). Papers must be in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format)
format and must be submitted electronically through the conference
submission site. Papers will not be accepted in any other format.

Papers should be submitted through the Easychair system:



    * Submission: January 13, 2011 (11:59 pm Hawaii time)
    * Notification: February 24, 2011
    * Camera Ready: March 10, 2011
