Call for Demos

The demonstrations track of the ESWC 2015 complements the overall
program of the conference with demonstrations of real-world,
applied-and-tested advances of semantic technologies. In addition to
papers and posters presenting latest theoretical achievements, ESWC
2015 is seeking demonstrations of novel applications of semantics in
various sectors, including: eGovernment,  eEnvironment, eMobility and
smart cities, eHealth, Life Sciences, Sensor networks and RDF Stream
Processing, Linked Science, Media and entertainment,
Telecommunications, Cultural heritage, Financial services, Energy and
utilities, Manufacturing, Digital libraries, Cloud applications,
Personal Information Management, Decision support, Emergency and
crisis management etc.

The demonstrations track is an opportunity for researchers and
practitioners to present their innovative prototypes, practical
developments, on-going projects, lessons learned and late-breaking
results, relevant for the topics of interest of the main conference
and the research and poster tracks.

Submissions to the demonstrations track should make clear what will be
demonstrated, and in particular point out what makes the demonstration
a novel showcase. A video of the demo should be provided if a link to
the demonstrator is not available.  Submission should also specify:
* What is the research background and application context of the
demonstration, and what makes this a novel showcase for semantic
* What is the key technology used, and how does the demonstrated
system, application or infrastructure relate to pre-existing work.
* What exactly will be demonstrated? What exactly will a visitor of
the demonstration learn?
