*About ESWC2011*

The mission of the Extended Semantic Web Conference is to bring together
researchers and practitioners dealing with different aspects of semantics on
the Web. ESWC 2011 builds on the success of ESWC 2010 and the former
European Semantic Web Conference series, but seeks to extend its focus by
engaging with other communities within and outside ICT, in which semantics
can play an important role. At the same time, ESWC is a truly international

Co-located workshops at ESWC conferences are distinguished meeting points
for discussing ongoing work and latest ideas related to semantics and the
Semantic Web. Of particular interest are workshop proposals with an
interdisciplinary standpoint, proposals focusing on a specific technology of
general interest, or gathering a sub-community.

*General Information and criteria*

The decision on acceptance/rejection of workshop proposals will be made on
the basis of the overall quality of the proposal as well as of how it fits
in with the conference. The organizers of successful workshops will be
responsible for their own reviewing process, publicity (e.g., website and
call for papers), and proceedings production. They will be required to
closely cooperate with the Workshops Chairs and the ESWC 2011 local
organizers to finalize all organizational details. Workshop attendees must
pay the ESWC 2011 workshop registration fee, as well as the conference
registration fee.
