My point is that, you *are* in a privileged position to set the agenda
towards what you and wish the community to achieve. I'd like to
encourage you to take that opportunity. If seeing "Webby" academic
output is not of interested, there is no point to this discussion. If
you do want to see it happen - and I think you do :) - you have two options:

A. continue with PDF as per usual - gaining trivial metadata at best

B. welcome native Web tech - potentially gaining complete granular
semantics, interactive articles, and so forth

One of those options, for whatever it is worth, will lead you to getting
that knowledge *on the Web* - LOD cloud being one place - making it
actually accessible, usable, queryable, and an opportunity for
subsequent VOILA workshops to use its own data to demonstrate whatever
the new stuff R&D is up to.

I didn't mention HTML, but, sure, HTML may be one possibility.

Can you provide URLs to what you consider to be "produced properly"?

and will likely go for a similar model as this year's ISWC, i.e., allow
for submissions either in PDF or HTML, whatever authors prefer


FYI, more or less the same guidelines were given in ISWC 2016:

I'm... I am aware.
