ISWC 2013 is asking poster authors to put QR codes on their posters that
link into Elsevier's Poster In My Pocket web space.  These links are
useless without Elsevier's proprietary app, even in regular web browsers.

If you care about the open web, you should consider using a different QR
code on your poster.

One possibility is to link to the ISWC 2013 web page for your poster, which
can be found by looking up your poster in

Another possibility is to link to a web page about openness in the Semantic
Web, such as http://www.w3.org/DesignIssues/LinkedData.html

It is easy to generate QR codes.   There are even web services that will do
the job for you.

Of course, you should check to see whether the image does the right thing
before you commit to using it.


PS:  I have attached a QR code for the linked open data design page.
