As I understand it, there is a disconnect between the submission format 
and what ESWC wishes to achieve or encourage [1].

Can someone please elaborate on how forcing researchers to use PDF to 
share their publicly funded knowledge instead of SW/LD technologies and 
tools better fulfills [1], or perhaps even contributes towards the 
Semantic Web "vision"?

I would like to better discover and use SW research knowledge. ESWC 
encouraging and promoting PDF for knowledge sharing sets an unnecessary 
limit on discovery and use.

Will you consider encouraging the use of Semantic Web / Linked Data 
technologies for Extended "Semantic Web" Conference paper submissions?
