Call for Presenation: Industry Track - 10th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2011)

Call for Presentations: Industry Track
10th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2011)
October 23 - 27, 2011
Bonn, Germany

The International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2011), the world’s leading
Semantic Web research conference, is hosting an Industry Track to invite the
business community to present products and services that leverage Semantic
Web technologies and/or enrich the Semantic Web ecosystem. The International
Semantic Web Conference  is the premiere networking conference for the
professional and academic research community. Industry Track demonstrates
the most recent evolution of Semantic Web technologies and applications
development & research to a wider audience. We invite industry vendors to
submit short proposals for this track. No formal paper is required. While
such presentations can focus on vendor-branded products and services, we
seek to allow vendors to (1) give more in-depth technical discussion about
the specific aspects of Semantic Web technologies in their products and
services; (2) explain how their products and services are helping transition
clients into Semantic Web efforts; and (3) describe the innovative plans for
their products and services that lead to the adoption of Semantic Web

The key dates for the Call for Presentations are close to the conference
date to encourage vendors to include last-minute updates and innovations of
general interest to ISWC 2011 attendees. We provide a world class venue for
companies who might otherwise not submit a formal paper to ISWC, but
nevertheless have valuable insights and engineering acumen regarding various
Semantic Web technologies and their applicability.

Submissions and Format

Authors must submit a presentation for consideration. We recommend that each
submission also includes an abstract of a maximum of 200 words. Submissions
