----------------------------------------------------------

This year's edition of the SumPre+HSWI workshop will feature a *demo jam
session*. If you have an interesting user interface to the semantic web
and/or linked open data, an interesting tool for summarizing and/or
presenting semantic web entities, or a user interface that makes
use of semantic  web data, you are welcome to show it in a short,
informal demo.

The rules are as follows:
* you bring the demo running on your own laptop
* demos will be shown in a plenary setting
* you are only allowed to show an actual system (i.e., no slides)
* you have a maximum of 5 minutes
* there may or may not be internet access (so having a local fallback is
a good idea)

The goal is to provide a setting where you can discuss your ideas and
facilitate exchange about current issues that exist in the field of
human semantic web interaction.

There will be *no formal review process*. If you are interested to show
your demo, please enter your data in the following Google Doc:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Kvq41YpM-9U5wjewOjcNIt2J45oQQyrrhjeMaVx8tSk/edit?usp=sharing

In case there are more people interested than we have space, the
organizers reserve the right to pick the ones which look the most
interesting to them.

The topics of SumPre+HSWI include, but are not limited to:

* Semantic Web applications and tools addressing the needs of end users,
both for creating and consuming Semantic Web data
* Requirements for supporting the design and implementation of user
interfaces for semantic applications
* Natural Language Interfaces
* Interaction styles and requirements, including new/emergent types of
interactions
* Models for specifying structure and behavior of semantic interfaces
* Lessons learned from developing, evaluating and using semantic interfaces
* Defining Semantic Interfaces: concepts, requirements
* Literature reviews and methodologies in the scope of Human-Semantic
Web Interaction
* Stakeholders perspectives
* Sensemaking
* Semantic search interfaces
* Use Cases/Case Studies, best practices, evaluations
* New web based interaction technologies (Gesture, Touch, Mind-Web
Interfaces, etc.)UI/UX
* Paradigms for semantic applications on mobile devices, taking into
account on-board sensors (think: SIRI/Google Now on steroids)
* Visualization in semantic interfaces
* Task and context-specific entity summarization
* Summarization of graphs and knowledge bases
* Ontology ranking, summarization, modularization, and search
* Fact ranking, retrieval, and question answering over the Web
* Evaluation of ranking and summarization methods
* Verbalizing and visualizing entity-centric data
* Ontology visualization and exploration
* Navigation, faceted browsing, and exploratory search
* Entity/link/ontology recommendation
* Novel presentation methods and interaction paradigms for ontologies 
and Web data
* User studies with visualization and exploration methods
* Novel applications of the above techniques
