First Call for Posters and Demos


The 13th International Semantic Web Conference


19-23 October 2014, Riva del Garda, Trento, Italy


The ISWC 2014 Posters and Demonstrations Track complements the Research
Paper track of the conference and offers an opportunity for presenting
late-breaking research results, ongoing research projects, and speculative
or innovative work in progress. The informal setting of the Posters and
Demonstrations Track encourages presenters and participants to engage in
discussions about the presented work. Such discussions can be invaluable
inputs for the future work of the presenters, while offering participants
an effective way to broaden their knowledge of the emerging research trends
and to network with other researchers.

We invite submissions relevant to the area of the Semantic Web and which
address, but are not limited to, the topics of the Research Track; the
Replication, Benchmark, Data, and Software Track; and the Semantic Web In
Use Track. Technical posters, reports on Semantic Web software systems,
descriptions of completed work, and work in progress are all welcome.
Demonstrations are intended to showcase innovative Semantic Web related
implementations and technologies. All submissions are intended to convey a
scientific result or work in progress and should not be advertisements for
commercial software packages.

Authors of full papers accepted for the Research Track; Replication,
Benchmark, Data, and Software Track; and Semantic Web In Use Track are
explicitly invited to submit a poster or a demonstration. The submission
should be formatted as the other posters and demonstrations but must cite
the accepted full paper and needs to include an explanation of its added
value with respect to the conference paper. The added value could include:
a) extended results and experiments not presented in the conference paper
for space reasons, or b) a demonstration of a supporting prototype


Authors must submit a four-page extended abstract for evaluation. All
submissions will undergo a common review process, including those related
to already accepted full papers. Decisions about acceptance will be based
on relevance to the Semantic Web, originality, potential significance,
topicality and clarity. For demonstrations, authors are strongly encouraged
to include in their submission a link to where the demo (live or recorded
video) can be found. They should also make clear what exactly will be
demonstrated to the participants (e.g., what data sets will be used, which
functionalities will be shown).

All papers and abstracts have to be submitted electronically via the
EasyChair conference submission system (coming soon).

Submissions must use the PDF file format and must adopt the style of the
Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
Details are provided on Springer's Author Instructions page. Submissions
that exceed the page limit will be rejected without review.

At least one of the authors must be a registered participant at the
conference, and attend the Poster/Demo Session to present the work. The
abstracts of accepted posters and demonstrations will be given to all
conference attendees and published on the conference web site, but will not
be published by Springer in the printed conference proceedings. They will,
however, be compiled into a CEUR-WS Proceedings for easy Web retrieval and

Metadata for all successful submissions will be included in the conference
metadata corpus. Detailed information about metadata creation will be
provided with the acceptance notification of the successful submissions.


  * Poster & Demo Submission: July 10, 2014
  * Notifications: July 31, 2014
  * Camera-Ready Versions: August 21, 2014

All deadlines are Hawaii time.
