Call for Participation - Outrageous Ideas Track

ISWC 2011 - 10th International Semantic Web Conference
October 23-27, 2011
Bonn Germany

Deadline: September 5

At ISWC2011 we celebrate the 10th anniversary of this conference. As part of
the celebration we would like to look into future long-term challenges and
opportunities in the "Outrageous Ideas" track in cooperation with the
Computing Community Consortium (CCC). We solicit unconventional and
innovative ideas that identify new research opportunities in this field.
This track is designed to overcome the constraints of the traditional review
process, and will serve as an incubator for innovative approaches, risky
architectures and provocative ideas as a way to look at the next 10 years
outside of current mainstream research in the field. Submissions will be
judged on the extent to which they expand the possibilities and horizons of
the field. After a reviewing procedure, runner-up papers will be selected
for presentation at the conference. Based on PC and audience votes three
winners will be finally selected for the prizes.

Submission of Abstracts and Papers

The Outrageous Track PC members will review the submissions. All submissions
to this track must be in English, and no longer than 4 pages (both
submission and final publication). Submissions must be in PDF formatted in
the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS). For details on the LNCS style, see Springerís Author

Authors of accepted papers will be required to provide semantic annotations
for the abstract of their submission, which will be made available on the
conference web site. Details will be provided at the time of acceptance.

Accepted papers will be distributed to conference attendees and also
published online at the conference website. At least one author of each
accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper there.
