1st Workshop on Making Sense of Microposts #MSM2011
7th Extended (former European) Semantic Web Conference ESWC 2010
30 May 2011
Heraklion, Greece

The topic of Making Sense of Microposts generated a lot of interest in the
Semantic Web research community, confirmed by 19 high quality paper
submissions, out of which 9 were accepted. We are now opening a second call
for a poster and demo track for presenting ideas, late-breaking results,
ongoing research projects, and speculative or innovative work in progress.
Posters and Demos are intended to provide authors and participants with the
ability to connect with one another and to engage in discussions about the
work. The call is intended for presentations of both work in research and

Authors are invited to submit a 2-page paper (PDF, Springer LNCS style [1])
with a separate abstract (up to 150 words). The paper must clearly
demonstrate relevance to the #MSM2011 topics. Decisions about acceptance
will be based on relevance to the Semantic Web area, originality, potential
significance, topicality and clarity.

The accepted posters and demos will be presented in the coffee breaks during
the Workshop, thus giving the poster authors the opportunity to interact
with other participants and obtain feedback on their work. The poster
abstracts will be available on the Workshop website, but will not be
included in the official proceedings.

An award for the most innovative poster/demo will be given by the workshop
